Abstract

Coumarin (a benzo-pyrone) has been shown to significantly increase liver weights 2 days after its injection. It is believed that coumarin belongs to a group of reticulo-endothelial system stimulants which increase the numbers of phagocytosing sites by increasing the number of phagocytic cells.
