Xanthan gum (XG), a microbial exopoysaccharide produced by fermentation of Xan-thomonas campetris, has unique physical properties. The effects of XG on murine immunityin vivo was studied, and found that XG induced significant increase of IgM - PFC in murinesystem. However, DTH and weight - inerease of spleen and thymus were not obviously af-fected by XG. The experimenal results indicated that XG has little effect on murine cellularimmunity, but has distinct enhance on humeral immune responses in mice.
