Abstract

An 8-year-old male with AIDS and disseminated Mycobacterium avium intracellulare infection was treated with transfer factor (TF) prepared from maternal lymphocytes. Subsequent lymphocyte stimulation studies and repeat cultures failed to demonstrate improvement during treatment. His overall clinical status remained unchanged. No adverse effects of TF were noted.
