- Dosing considerations for Thymus Extract.
Because thymus can come from animals, there is concern about possible contamination with diseased animal parts. Any products made from contaminated or diseased organs might present a human health hazard. However, so far, there are no reports of disease transmission to humans due to use of contaminated thymus extract.
Special Precautions & Warnings:Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking thymus extract if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.
Weakened immune system: People who have a weakened immune system (HIV/AIDS patients, for example) or people who are taking drugs to weaken their immune system (organ transplant recipients, for example) have a higher risk of infection. These people should avoid thymus extract products unless these products are certified germ-free.
