The potential to modulate the activity of the immune system by interventions with specific nutrients is termed as immunonutrition".Immune-modulating nutrients added to enteral formulas to boost immunity through diet, are four immunonutrients which are:
dsRNA, ssRNA, and CpG oligonucleotides are ligands for toll-like receptors (TLRs) and modulate antiviral immunity through TLR signaling pathways and IFN induction (2).
It is possible that the THF-diols and LTX-diols modulate cellular proliferation by controlling the synthesis of these linoleic acid metabolites and/or by mimicking these compounds as mitogenic agents.
Musically, Body of Song finds Mould effortlessly integrating the defining styles of his career, including the raw distortion of Husker Du, the plaintive pop of Sugar, and even the dance spin of Modulate. But this hasn't taken the ire, or fire, out of Mould's fight.

The potential clinical manifestations of this over-activity might be a vague restlessness, tension or exaggerated drive, all of which the person seeks to organize and modulate, even sublimate, by compulsive personality traits.
In the present study, an effort was made to define a fat detection threshold for the free fatty acid, linoleic acid, and examine the ability of linoleic acid to modulate the intake of another tastant, sucrose.
