  • Abstract

    The objective of the present investigation was to study immunomodulatory activity of alcohol, chloroform and aqueous extract of leaves of Ziziphus mauritiana using different invitro methods such as neutrophil locomotion and Nitro Blue Tetrazolium test using human neutrophils. This preliminary study reveals that Ziziphus mauritiana extract has stimulated phagocytic and intracellular killing potency of human neutrophils at different concentration. Thus from the results obtained it can be observed that the alcohol and aqueous extract of Ziziphus mauritiana leaves stimulates cell-mediated immune system by increasing neutrophil function and phagocytic activity.
