Modulation of immune response to alleviate disease has been of interest since long. Plant extracts have been widely investigated for possible immunomodulatory properties. We have evaluated the anticellular and immunomodulatory properties of ethanolic extract of Acorus calamus rhizome. This extract inhibited proliferation of mitogen (phytohaemagglutinin;(More)
In continuation to our earlier studies with peptidomimetic opioid compounds, we have further investigated immunosuppressive properties of one of our peptidomimetic compound (Tyr-NH-CH2-CH2-O-Phe-NH2) using peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of healthy volunteers. Peptidomimetic compound was evaluated for its effect on anti-CD3 and recombinant human(More)
The vascularly isolated abdominal circulation of chloralose-anesthetized dogs was perfused at constant flow through the aorta and drained at constant pressure from the inferior vena cava. Changes in resistance were calculated from changes in perfusion pressure and changes in capacitance were calculated by integrating changes in venous outflow. While carotid(More)
