Does Lentinan help against cancer?
Lentinan or Shiitake Lentinan may help extend the survival of patients with some cancers when used with chemotherapy, but additional studies are needed. Lentinan is a type of sugar molecule called 1,3 beta glucan that comes from the shiitake mushroom. In test tube experiments, lentinan does not kill cancer cells directly. Several clinical trials show that lentinan combined with chemotherapy prolongs life in patients with stomach, prostate, colorectal, and liver cancers. Shitake increases the effectiveness of several chemo agents and results in improved survival in hepatocellular and gastric cancersimproved quality of life in patients with esophageal carcinoma.
