"Superoxide Anion Production by HL-60 Cells and U937 Cells"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "The funds were used to evaluate the relative usefulness of HL60, a neutrophil cell line, and freshly isolated neutrophils in the superoxide anion assay. Three undergraduates participated in the project, which culminated in a poster presentation at the Academic Excellence Symposium this past spring. It takes a great deal of time and effort to learn the techniques. We are now ready to evaluate the impact of herbal supplements, including Echinacea, on superoxide production by neutrophils. The funds, in part, made this a reality."
