Project Description:
The present study aims to assess the immunomodulatory potential of a local species, the pili. This will provide baseline information regarding the potential use of this plant as immuno-nutritional supplements. The pili pulp is commonly used as vegetable dish however there is a need to establish its health benefits. Most of the studies are focused o... [read more]
