Objective: To investigate the cellular immunological effect of mogrosides in mice.

Methods: Mogrosides was administered to normal or CTX-induced immunosuppressive mice, and their macrophage function and T lymphocyte proliferation were detected.

Results: Mogrosides could promote phagocytosis and T lymphocyte proliferation significantly in the CTX-induced immunosuppressive mice, but not in the normal mice.

Conclusion: The results suggested that mogrosides had certain up-regulation on cellular immunity in the CTX-induced immunosuppressive mice.
