• PBMC
  • To explore the health-modulating constituents of common edible beans, their immunomodulatory activity on human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was evaluated. (fao.org)
  • In the method originally devised by Boyum [ 3 ], centrifugation on a density gradient, a concoction of a polysucrose (Ficoll) to aggregate erythrocytes and sodium diatrizoate (Hypaque) to adjust density, acts as the first step to separate out the peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), followed by dextran sedimentation to purify the neutrophils from the erythrocytes.

  • Since in the sedimentation step the leukocytes are incubated with dextran, we have raised the likelihood that cellular activation would occur with mediator release leading to neutrophil activation. (hindawi.com)
