Unripe papaya pulp juice enhances in vitro IL-6 synthesis in SHED in dose dependent manner. A significant increase in IL-6 (a) synthesis was found in the 10% UPJ group compared to the control, 2% UPJ and 5% UPJ groups (p = .008), while the 5% UPJ group produced significantly higher IL-6 compared to control and the 2% UPJ group (p = .008). Synthesis of IL-3 (b), TPO (c) and SCF (d) was not significantly different between groups. *Significantly higher compared to control and 2% UPJ group (p = .008); #Significantly higher than 5% UPJ group (p = .008); n = 9
