Immunomodulating-immunomodulator. What a mouthful!

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary an immunomodulator is: a chemical agent (or medicine in the case of the abc treatments) that modifies (or changes) the immune response or the functioning of the immune system (as by the stimulation of antibody formation or the inhibition of white blood cell activity).

In simpler terms, an immunomodulator is a drug or medicine that changes or alters the way the immune system responds or acts.

Immunomodulating means of, relating to, or being an immunomodulator or its effects or activity. (So, I guess anything relating to the first definition).

For example:

  • immunomodulating effects
  • an immunomodulating agent
  • immunomodulating properties

The main thing to understand is that these type of drugs, (immunomodulators), change the way some or parts of the immune system works. Hopefully we've cleared that up for you.
