A phase I/II study of a Ganoderma lucidum (Curt.: Fr.) P. Karst. extract (Ganopoly) in patients with advanced cancer


, : A phase I/II study of a Ganoderma lucidum (Curt.: Fr.) P. Karst. extract (Ganopoly) in patients with advanced cancer. International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms 4(3): 207-214

In vitro and animal studies have established that the polysaccharide fractions of Ganoderma lucidum have potential antitumor activity and inhibitory effect on tumor metastasis. Ganopoly (crude polysaccharide fractions extracted from G. lucidum by patented technique, kindly provided by Encore International Ltd., Auckland, NZ) has demonstrated immunomodulating and tumor inhibitory effects in in vitro and mouse models.
