 Medical BreakthroughImmunotec Research Ltd. announces the release of a powerful and unique nutraceutical. IMMUNOCAL®, a 100% natural bondedcysteine dietary supplement with superior nutritional value, is formulated to contain significantly high amounts of the rare precursors(building blocks) of GLUTATHIONE (GSH). GSH is the cells' own natural and most vital antioxidant, and detoxifier. GSH serves toreinforce both healthy and deficient immune systems. Immunocal® is essentially lactose-, and fat-free (under 1%), and has noknown side effects.It was the original discovery of the importance of GSH (Glutathione) in boosting the immune system that led to the development ofIMMUNOCAL®. As a result of many years of research which began in the late 1970's, Dr. Gustavo Bounous (world expert on GSH)and a team of McGill University physicians and scientists demonstrated that by using a whey protein isolate in the diet ofexperimental animals, the animals' life span was increased by as much as 30% to 50%. This effect was a result of immune-functionenhancement which occurred in a variety of ways, including a heightened resistance to infection, a lowered incidence of cancer,and a greater immune response when challenged with bacteria, viruses, or foreign antigens.Glutathione is a substance made up of three amino acids: glutamic acid, glycine, and most importantly, cysteine which gives themolecule its biological activity. GSH is found in almost all human cells. GSH cannot be transported into cells; it must bemanufactured within the cells. The only way to do this is by supplying the appropriate building blocks (precursors), which are theactive ingredients in IMMUNOCAL®.In the course of normal cell metabolism, by-products called 'oxyradicals', or 'free radicals', are created, which, unless immediatelyneutralized, can lead to poor health. High GSH levels are the key to this protective response. Other antioxidants such as Vitamin Cand E depend on GSH for their own function.GSH is concentrated in the liver, where it functions as a key detoxifying agent. Multiple toxins, pollutants and carcinogens areeliminated from our bodies via GSH enzymatic pathways.Our immune system depends on the proper response to foreign challenges like bacteria, viruses and parasites, and abnormal cells.GSH plays a crucial role in the function and multiplication of our lymphocytes to combat these organisms.IMMUNOCAL® is the only natural product patented to safely raise and sustain GSH. Other methods to raise intracellularglutathione in the past have included N-acetylcysteine (NAC) as well as other drugs. However, these have very short-lived effects.Actual ingestion of glutathione, although possible, has clearly been shown to be ineffective, as it is almost completely digested andexcreted intestinally. Dr. James Balch stated in his book The Super Antioxidants, "people have thrown money away takingglutathione supplements that their body cannot use." The isolated amino acid cysteine, when taken by itself, is poorly absorbed andpotentially toxic. Other forms of whey protein have variable or negligible bioavailability of GSH precursors and are easily denatured(damaged) in the manufacturing and handling process, leading to low bioactivity.**For more information, please see "GSH, Your Body's Most Powerful Healing Agent" or "Breakthrough in Cell Defense" available atbook stores or through the return address on this pamphlet. These two books contain exhaustive references.IMMUNOCAL®/HMS 90® is a patented, highly concentrated protein that in nature is most similar to mother's milk. In Canada it iscalled HMS 90® to denote Humanized milk Serum. It shares with mother's milk many immune promoting benefits.High in rare cysteine-delivering properties, it is prepared using a propriety process leading to a non-denatured 90% protein powder,preserving the original bioactivity of the thermolabile components. In other words, this guarantees the highest level of GSH-

promoting activity available. It is the only concentrate patented for immuno-optimizing and glutathione-enhancing effects.Although marketed in Europe, North Africa, and the Far East by pharmaceutical firms, this all-natural product can be purchasedwithout prescription in North America. It is listed in the Physicians Desk Reference Drug catalog, and the Pharmacist's Red Book ofprescription products, and it meets criteria for reimbursement for medicare/medicaid.Clinical trials in the USA, Canada, and Japan point to the benefits of IMMUNICAL®. A series of case reports on the use ofIMMUNOCAL® in urogenital cancer was published in the journal of Anti-Cancer Research (Anti-Cancer Research 2000 Nov-Dec;20(6c):4785-92.) The data corroborates the anti-cancer, anti-tumor effect on cancer seen in earlier animal studies and small humanstudies. In another study by Ammunomed accepted for presentation at the 2002 Int. meeting of the institute of Human Virology,IMMUNOCAL® alleviated side effects of HAART treatment in AIDS patients, and contributed to weight gain and markedimprovement. The Nova Scotia Cancer Center (Dalhousie University) has published on IMMUNOCAL® and metastatic cancer andhas undertaken a phase III trial on breast cancer. Japanese studies have shown its positive effects on hepatitis B. IMMUNOCAL® has been demonstrated to combat major bacterial and viral infections. Also, a phase II trial on Cystic Fibrosis is underway inMontreal. Immunotec Research Ltd. has established a fund to promote further studies.
Clinical studies have proven that immune depressed individuals have lower GSH concentrations. Healthy people also experience adrop in GSH levels when fighting disease. Lymphocytes, cells vital for your immune response, depend on GSH for their properfunction and replication.IMMUNOLOGY 61:503-508, 1987
Antioxidants are well-documented to play vital roles in health maintenance and disease prevention. GSH is the cell's own majorantioxidant. It recycles other antioxidants, such as vitamins C and E.BIOCHEMICAL PHARMACOLOGY 47:2113-2123, 1994
GSH detoxifies pollutants, carcinogens, and poisons, including many found in fuel exhaust and cigarette smoke. It retards damagefrom radiation such as that caused by the increased losses of the ozone layer. It reduces neurotoxicity, an underestimated hazard.ANNUAL REVIEWS OF BIOCHEMISTRY 52:711-760, 1983
By the age of 40 there is a precipitous drop in GSH levels. Lower glutathione levels are evident in many diseases associated withaging including cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's, arteriosclerosis, etc.JOURNAL OF CLINICAL EPIDEMIOLOGY 47:1021-26, 1994
Intense muscular activity generates oxyradicals leading to muscle fatigue and poorer performance. GSH neautralizes exercised-induced oxyradicals. A recent study with healthy individuals showed a 13% muscular performance increase when Immunocal wasused for 90 days.AMERICAN J. RESP.CRIT. CARE MED. 159:A719, 1999
GSH has been shown to prevent atheriosclerosis and even reverse it. GSH retards the oxidation of cholesterol and is greatly
