This study examined the effect of dietary (2.00 ppm for 8 weeks) supplementation with selenium (as sodium selenite) on the ability of lymphocytes from aged (24-month-old), male, C57BL/6JNIA mice to respond to: (i) stimulation with mitogen (phytohemagglutinin) or alloantigen; (ii) develop into cytotoxic effector cells; and (iii) destroy tumor cells… CONTINUE READING
