Abstract: The dialyzable material from fresh leaves of Aloe arborescens var. natalensis was examined in phagocytosis and a phagocytic killing test of Candida albicans. Separation of the active component was carried out by chromatography on ion exchange resins, and the activity was detected in the neutral amino acid fraction. The results from the bioassay and comparative study on amino acid compositions in the fractions isolated showed a positive participation by cysteine and proline in phagocytosis. A mixture of cysteine and proline (1:1) significantly enhanced the depressed phagocytosis of neutrophils in adult bronchial asthma.
