Biolife; 2016, 4(2), pp 337-341



Heart DNA was estimated in immunostimulated, immunostimulated + vaccine treated and normal male swiss albinomice. One group (I) mice treated with immunex DS (IDS) (@ 150mg/mouse); six groups of experimental (A, B, C, D, E and F) were treated with IDS + hepatitis B vaccine and one group (N) was kept as normal’s (untreated with IDS + vaccine).
