Abstract: A study of Ganoderma, a highly ranked in Oriental traditional medicine, was carried out. Data from a clinical study in cancer patients showed Ganopoly, a crude Ganoderma polysaccharide extract, enhanced host immune function, including increased activity of effector cells such as T lymphocytes, macrophages, and natural killer cells. Ganoderma may represent a practical and promising approach for cancer prevention and cancer treatment.
