Summary citation of the article Medicinal properties of Echinacea: A critical review.
“A series of experiments have demonstrated that E. purpurea extracts do indeed demonstrate significant immunomodulatory activities. Among the many pharmacological properties reported, macrophage activation has been demonstrated most convincingly. Phagocytotic indices and macrophage-derived cytokine concentrations have been shown to be Echinacea-responsive in a variety of assays. Activation of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and natural killer cells has also been reasonably demonstrated.” Barrett, B. “Medicinal Properties of Echinacea: A Critical Review.” in Phytomedicine.
