Thymosin Alpha-1 is a unique peptide used to help balance the immune system, and is a major component of Thymosin Fraction 5 found in the thymus. The thymus is responsible for regulating the immune system.  Thymosin Alpha-1 is prescribed to optimize the performance of your immune health and improve general wellness by preventing infections such as the common cold or the flu.  It acts to augment T-cell function; T cells are a part of the adaptive immune system which fights off infection.

Thymosin Alpha-1 is in Phase III trials for the treatment of hepatitis C and in Phase II trials for hepatitis B. Additional possible indications are malignant melanoma, hepatocellular carcinoma, drug-resistant tuberculosis, and Di George’s syndrome as well as any chronic cancer or viral disease. Some physicians are using thymosin for chronic fatigue and Lyme disease as well.
