Nigella sativa L. has long been used in the traditional medicine for treatment of many diseases including infections, immunomodulations and cancers. In this study, the immunostimulating activity of ethanolic extract of N. sativa was investigated in light of the production of immunoglobulin M (IgM) and the proliferation of murine splenic cells in vitro. The production of IgM in cultural supernatants was determined by an Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) and the proliferation of mice… Expand
