Efficacy and potency test studies in progress.

Composition

An inactivated rubeola virus combined with histamine phosphate in physiological saline. Contains phenol as a preservative.

GENERAL INFORMATION: RVI acts to modify the immune and inflammatory responses to alleviate Chronic Myofascial Inflammation and its associated problems in the equine.

Discussion: T-lymphocytes, including suppressor T-cells, significantly modulate the immune response. Unfortunately these cells are very sensitive to insult, whether from stress, dietary changes, infection, or environmental toxins. These suppressor T-cells function by controlling B-cells (the antibody producers), cytotoxic cells, and helper T-cells from over-responding to insults. Unless controlled, this over response could result in an immune response to auto or self antigens. Evidence indicates an auto immune component to chronic myofascial inflammation and myositis. Studies reflect a decrease in suppressor T-cell function, although not necessarily a decrease in absolute number of T-cells. RVI acts by specifically modulating suppressor T-cell function in a controlled fashion to allow re-establishment of the normal balance between various subpopulations of T- and B-lymphocytes. This will aid in the healing process leading to the decrease or elimination of myofascial inflammation in the affected animals.
