- Changes of Natural Killer cell activity [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
Natural Killer cell activity was measured in study baseline and 8 week. A ratio of effector cell and target cell was 50:1, 25:1, 12.5:1.
(Experimental - Effector Spontaneous - Target Spontaneous) / (Target Maximum - Target Spontaneous) × 100
- Changes of Cytokines [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
For blood Cytokines analysis, collect 3 ml of blood in one SST tube for 5 ml, leave at room temperature for 30 minutes for clotting, after then centrifuge at 3000 rpm (or 2000 xg) for 10 minutes.
Inspection item were IL-2, IL-6, IL-12, IFN-γ, TNF-α.
- Changes of Upper respiratory infection questionnaire score [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]
The upper respiratory infection questionnaire will investigate the occurrence of symptoms of upper respiratory infections (or symptoms), the score by symptom, the duration (days), and survey on the day of visit (1st, 2nd and 3rd visits).
The questionnaire items were classified into three groups according to whether or not the symptoms of upper respiratory infections (or symptoms) occurrence (yes or no), the types of symptoms (sore throat, rhinorrhea, nasal obstruction, sneezing, hoarseness, myalgia, earache, fever, headache, cough, sputum, dyspnea, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting)and symptoms level (0 if no symptoms, 1 if slightly, 2 if normal, 3 severe).
