Abstract The effects of curcumin, an anti-inflammatory agent from Curcuma longa on the proliferation of blood mononuclcar cells anil vascular smooth muscle cells were studied. Proliferative responses were determined from the uptake of tritiated thymidine. In human peripheral blood mononuclear cells, curcumin dose dependently inhibited the responses to phytohemagglutinin and mixed lymphocyte reaction at the dose ranges of 10 −6 to 3 × 10 −5 and 3 × 10 −6 to 3 × 10 −5 M, respecti (10 −6 to 10 −4… CONTINUE READING
