Among the many substances that stimulate reticuloendothelial function, one of the most convenient experimentally is glyceryl trioleate [1]. This substance has been shown to have an effect on individual RE cells. After exposure to it in vitro a population of peritoneal cells had increased phagocytic activity toward bacteria [2], probably due to an increase in the number of active cells [3]. The cellular mechanism of this effect is obscure.
