The in vitro immunomodulatory effects of glyconutrients on peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

  [ 36 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By See DM, Cimoch P, Chou S, Chang J, Tilles J • • June 15, 1998

In humans, eight monosaccharides are required for the synthesis of
glycoproteins. Dietary supplements that supply these crucial
sugars are known as glyconutrients. A glyconutrient compound
was added to Peripheral Blood Mononuclear Cells (PBMC)
isolated from normal controls and patients with the Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), a disease associated with immune
dysregulation. The in vitro immunomodulatory effects were
investigated. Cell surface expression of the glycoproteins
CD5, CD8, and CD11a were significantly lower in patients with
CFS compared to normal controls. Addition of glyconutrient
homogenate to PBMC from patients with CFS stimulated with
phytohemagglutinin significantly increased the expression of
each glycoprotein. Furthermore, natural killer (NK) cell
function was reduced in CFS patients. The glyconutrient
preparation significantly enhanced NK cell activity versus
human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6)-infected H9 cells in an 8 h 51Cr
release assay compared to placebo for PBMC from patients with
CFS (p< .01). Finally, apoptosis was significantly higher in
patients with CFS. The percentage of apoptotic cells was
significantly decreased in PBMC from patients with CFS that
had been incubated for 48 h with glyconutrients. Thus,
glyconutrients improved abnormal immune parameters in vitro in
patients with CFS.
