RODRIGUEZ ACOSTA, Mireida et al. Effect of Aloe barbadensis Miller on the lymphoblastic transformation of the burned patient. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2004, vol.33, n.3. ISSN 0138-6557.

The action of the Aloe b injectable aqueous extract on the lymphoblastic transformation in burned patients classified into severe and critical was evaluated. The sample was composed of 44 individuals divided into 2 groups: control (habitual treatment) and treated (habitual treatment plus Aloe b). The lymphoblastic transformation was assessed with phytohaemagglutinin and concanavaline, 0, 3 and 21 days after having received the thermal treatment. A statistically significant stimulation of the cellular proliferaton was found from the 21st day on for both mitogens in all the patients that recieved the aqueous extract on being compared with the group that underwent the habitual treatment. The Aloe b injectable aqueous extract stimulated the cellular proliferation in the burned patient.

Keywords : Lymphocytes; Aloe barbadensis; lymphoblastic transformation; burns.
