NR-19347 was made using the serologically active terminal disaccharide (ND; natural disaccharide) portion of phenolic glycolipid-I (PGL-I) linked to human serum albumin (HSA) via an octyl linker arm. PGL-I is unique to Mycobacterium leprae (M. leprae) where it is produced in copious amounts. It plays a role in invasion of human nerves by binding to the receptors on the Schwann cells. PGL-I causes a specific antibody to be produced in the sera of leprosy patients.

Each vial contains approximately 250 µg of lyophilized ND-O-HSA from M. leprae.

Note: NR-19347 can be reconstituted in sterile phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2, or another suitable buffer.
