Lentinan
Explanation:
MedLine Search on Lentinan
A Non-Toxic Anti-Tumor Polysaccharide from the Shitake Mushroom

The shitake mushroom is a common culinary mushroom used in Chinese, and
probably Japanese cooking. In the US, shitake is available fresh or dried
in oriental markets, health food markets, and even many supermarkets. In
Japan, lentinan, an extract of this mushroom has been used against
colorectal and stomach cancer, often in conjunction with other treatment
such as chemotherapy, and Japanese researchers have presented data
supporting this use. Like most of the other polysaccharide drugs, lentinan
appears to be an immunostimulant. Almost all of the Japanese studies are
use injected lentinan, so it is very unclear whether eating shitake
mushrooms could have a beneficial effect aside from the considerable
culinary virtues.

Nel tardi anni Sessata un estratto di acqua calda di Lentinuis edodes (Berk.) Sing., un fungo commestibile, ha completamente inibito la crescita del sarcoma 180 impiantato sollocutaneamente nei ratti ICR (Chihara et al., 1969). Dall'estratto il prof. Goro Chihara ha isolato e purificato un polisaccaride che ha mostrato una marcata attività anti tumoral ed ha chamato il polisaccaride Lentinan (1). Tuttavia il Lentinan si é rivelato essere troppo tossico in un uso clinico prolungato (2).
