Immunomodulatory activities of Petiveria alliacea
Date of Publication
A non-polar extract of Petiveria aliacea increased the phagocytotic index of human granulocytes from 4.0 to 6.2. One of the immunomodulatory compounds present in the extract is dibenzyltrisulphide, which caused an increase in the weight of the thymus and Peyer's patches.
