PMBL in prevention of URTI
The clinical trial performed by Macchi demonstrated a significant reduction of number of URTI in patients treated with PMBL (-57%) as compared to patients treated with Chemical lysates or control group. This was noticed during treatment period and follow-up. Additionally, the need to use antibiotics was nil with patients treated with PMBL as compared to those treated with chemical lysates.
