Studies of the action of leucogenenol on the peripheral leukocytes, the myeloid cells found in bone marrow, and the lymphoid cells found in the spleen of sublethally irradiated mice strongly suggest that leucogenenol stimulates the maturation and/or cellular division of cells of both the myeloid and lymphoid series.
