Activation of human monocytes with MDP (N-acetylmuramyl-L-alanyl-D-isoglutamine) 1-100 micrograms per ml for 48 h in vitro enhanced the cytostatic activity against the target cell line K-562, while cytolysis remained unchanged. Catalase, 600 SU per ml, had no inhibitory effect on the cytostasis mediated by MDP-activated monocytes. The optimal MDP… CONTINUE READING
