News report published in La Verdad de Murcia

The researchers received the prize of the best free communication presented at the 2016 AVEPA-SEVC Congress, which took place this past October in Granada.

This study proves the clinical efficacy of Impromune for the treatment of canine leishmaniosis, a disease that more than 350 million people in the world are at risk of contracting.

More precisely, the study demonstrated the clinical improvement in dogs with leishmaniosis, as well as a normalization of the serum levels of various acute phase proteins in the patient, which indicates that the patient is responding correctly to the treatment. The treatment consisted of meglumine antimoniate combined with Impromune®, a compound by Bioiberica Animal Health which consists of nucleotides and AHCC. This combination obtained better results than the standard treatment, without being associated with unwelcomed secondary effects.
