Abstract:
The objective of this study was to evaluate the immunoprophylactic activity of immunol, a polyherbal formulation against dexamethasone induced immunosuppression in rats. The rats were administered oral doses of 1, 5 and 10 mL kg-1 b.wt., orally for 28 days following which immunosuppression was induced using dexamethasone (5 mg kg-1, twice daily for 3 days, intraperitoneally). Immunol at the dose of 10 mL kg-1 b.wt. exhibited prophylactic effect against dexamethasone induced immune suppression by way of both cell mediated and humoral mediated immunity.
