In the meantime, macrophage-related cytokines TNF-[alpha], IL-1[beta], and IL-6 were also investigated in this study to confirm that ORPH is an immunostimulator. Our results showed that the secretion levels of TNF-[alpha], IL-1[beta], and IL-6 were upregulated in ORPH-treated macrophages, suggesting the possible roles of macrophages in the antitumor activity upon ORPH treatment, as previously demonstrated for fermented milk [31] and fish protein hydrolysates [28].

In addition, proliferation of [CD8.sup.+] T cells which was cocultured with KML-B-treated BMDCs pulsed with [OVA.sub.257-264] was more increased in the 72-hour incubation time than in the 48-hour incubation time (Figure 2), demonstrating that KML-B acted as a potent immunostimulator of [CD8.sup.+] T cells via DC activation.
