Immunomodulatory treatment by means of the inductor of the endogenous KP-45 interferon injected either intrathecally or intraventricularly with simultaneous oral administration of Isoprinosine is discussed. A follow-up study indicated that this method of treatment, as compared to other immunomodulatory medications and to outcome in a control group of untreated patients, yielded the best results.
