Abstract

In the present study, the potent lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-mimetic stimulation of B cells and macrophages by hot water extract from Salicornia herbacea (S. europeae L.) is described. The extract activated spleen cells to proliferate in a dose-related manner as measured by [$^3$ H)-thymidine incorporation response.(omitted)
