[Immunology] LPS stimulated cell growth

I am currently working on the human PBMC. The concanavalin A stimulated PBMC
showed high proliferation rate, but the LPS stimulated PBMC had similar
proliferation rate with the unstimulated one. Is different LPS source
stimulate PBMC growth differently? I am using the LPS from Escheriachia
coli, 055:B5, Sigma. What are the possible reasons for low cell
proliferation for LPS stimulated PBMC?

Thank you.
