Antilymphocyte immunoglobulin

Introduction: Antilymphocyte immunoglobulin

Description of Antilymphocyte immunoglobulin

Antilymphocyte immunoglobulin: A purified gamma immunoglobulin with immunosuppressive properties. Obtained from rabbits that have been immunized with human thymocytes, antithymocyte globulin specifically recognizes and destroys T lymphocytes. Although the exact mechanism of action is not completely understood, it appears to involve T lymphocyte clearance from the circulation and modulation of T lymphocyte activity. Administering antithymocyte globulin with chemotherapy prior to stem cell transplantation may reduce the risk of graft-versus-host disease. (NCI04)
