In second group, prednisolone acetate used instead of plantain extract for 5 days (according to the dose of 2 mg/kg every 24 hours). And in third group (control) no medication used. Blood samples took for hematology and immunology experiments at days 0, 5 and 10 and the amount of blood was divided into two equal parts, and for hematology tests and to measure IgE immune factors and percentage and number of phagocytosis was sent to faculty lab. The result showed that in three groups comparison, during the recovery (post- treatment), eosinophils (Eos), immunoglobulin E (IgE) and germ amount in Leaf extract group has no significant change in appropriation to control group. The amount of these factors in comparison with the chemical drug group (Corton) had significant change (p<0.05), and other factors did not change significantly during treatment (p<0.05). Moreover, comparing two groups of Corton and sycamore, there is significantly better changes in IgE and Eos factors in the plantain leaves group.
