Prevention of recurrent infections
Infections are abnormal states in which a germ or infectious agent invades the body and remains in it, causing some kind of damage. The two most important factors that make an infection possible are:
- The natural ability of the infecting agent to pass through natural barriers and tissues, which is known as virulence.
- The degree of lability or efficiency of the person’s general defense system during the various phases of the attack of the germ (susceptibility).
People with permanent defects of immunity can contract the same types of infections as normal people, for example: ear infections, sinusitis or pneumonia, only they occur more frequently. These recurrent infections are often stronger and more at risk of complications, since they do not respond as easily to regular medications. On these occasions, we talk about recurrent infections.
The bacterial treatments are indicated for the preventive treatment of respiratory infections, since they act as immunomodulators, creating a defensive state against the microorganisms responsible for respiratory infections.
Apither Bacteriana Vaccine
APITHER is an individualized bacterial vaccine of inactive complete bodies and is formulated by the specialist for a patient. Apither is an immunostimulant that due to its sublingual application produces an effect on the oral mucosa and that is distributed to the other lymphoid tissues associated with mucosa.
·Reduction of recurrent infectious episodes in Sinusitis, Cough/Bronchitis or Pharyngitis.
·Nonspecific infections of the upper respiratory tract (common cold).
·Prophylaxis of asthma attacks caused by respiratory infections.
·Prophylaxis of infectious exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
· Reduction of the number of infectious episodes in recurrent infection of the urinary tract.
The stimulation of the immune system that is achieved with the bacterial vaccine exceeds the specific response to them on account of its great capability to activate the body’s natural or innate immunity.
Therefore, Apither bacteriana can have an immunostimulating action, since, in addition to generating a specific response to the components of the vaccine, it increases the anti-infective resistance against other microorganisms not contained in it.
