Thymalin is an endogenous peptide involved in the immune system. Thymalin does stimulate cell-mediated immunity, enhance phagocytosis and the processes of regeneration and hematopoiesis.
It is used in the medical practice as an immunostimulant in the complex treatment of diseases followed by suppression of cell-mediated immunity. This includes inflammatory diseases, burns, trophic ulcers, consequences of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Thymulin also can be used for a prophylaxis of postoperative complications.

The dosage for adults is 2-10mg daily. The length of the treatment course is 3-10 days depending on the patient condition. The course can be repeated in 1-6 months if necessary
How Thymalin works
It is based on the principle that natural peptides have a significantly high potential of restoring normal biologic activity and are also associated with an acceptable toxicological profile. Studies have shown conclusively that the biologic activity is restored by the active component of the drug (the polypeptide constituent) while the toxicological profile is usually associated with the vehicle used.
In Thymalin, the active component is a polypeptide, and the vehicle used is a combination of water-soluble salts. Studies have shown that the immunostimulant effects of Thymalin are due to the capability of the polypeptide to modulate the ratio of the subpopulations of functional immunocompetent cells.
