Li Chunhua, et al (Central Laboratory)
In this study amygdalin (1.5mg/20g body weight and 3mg/20g body weight)was respectively given to mice by the i.m.route q.o.d, total six times. After that ~(99m)Tc phytas was injected i.v. into mice (20μCi/20g body weight) and the CPM of liver, lung, spleen, blood and kidney was individually determined by the γ-counter. Results show that amygdalin promotes the phagocytosis of the Kupffer's cells of liver and the macrophage of lung.
