What Is Thymosin Beta-4?

Thymosin beta is a multifunctional tissue repair and regeneration peptide (Philp D, 2010). It has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic properties (Shah R, 2018).

TB4 is involved in tissue repair and regeneration, wound healing, inflammation and fibrosis (the formation of scar tissue) (Goldstein AL K. H., 2015) and (Renga, 2018). It can be used to treat eye injuries, skin wounds, heart repair after a heart attack and heal the brain following stroke, trauma or neurological diseases (Goldstein AL, 2015).

Side effects

TB4 treatment has been safely used in patients and animals to treat traumatic brain injury, corneal injuries, lung inflammation and fibrosis (Jiang Y, 2017). It is thought to be safe in clinical applications (Jiang Y, 2017).

The most common side effects of Thymosin Beta-4 are reddening, pain and discomfort at the injection site. Temporary tiredness or lethargy can occur.

It should definitely not be used in people with cancer. Thymosin B4 is involved not only in normal cell migration, but also in tumor metastasis and has been linked to increased risk of metastasis (Sribenja S, 2013). It is contraindicated for anyone with cancer.
