Popularly known as Lahugni in Fulfuldeh and Karkarbaw in Tupuri, Combretum aculeatum Vent. is used in traditional medicine in the Northern regions of Cameroon as back pain, muscular-skeletal aches and eyes remedies; it is also used for the treatment of blennorrhoea, leprosy, rheumatic pains and other inflammatory diseases. This study was conducted to evaluate the immunomodulatory effect of crude methanolic extract and isolated compounds from C. aculeatum using luminol/zymosan and lucigenin/MPA…
