A study aimed at testing out the immunomodulatory activities of Quinton’s isotonic and hypertonic solution, both in vitro and in vivo included the possible effects of both products in vitro, on human mononuclear cells of peripheral blood (PBMNc) in cultures, taken from healthy individuals. This involved assessing the following general aspects during the culture:
- Microscopic study of the possible effects on the cell viability, morphology, number and size of aggregated cells.
- Study of the possible effects on specific and general cellular proliferation.
- Study the possible effects on cellular proliferation in different lymphocyte
- Effect on haemoglobin released into the medium, in order to discover the
possible effect of protecting or preserving the red blood cells.
