    Hi,

    I can’t open this link for some reason. But is this the FDA approved study with turkey tail mushroom at Bastyr University? I believe the patient population was breast cancer patients however, the effects of these mushrooms on the immune system can still be extraplolated.

    Hugs,

    Here is a study on using mushroom extract:

    Their potential uses individually and as adjuncts to cancer therapy have emerged. Mushrooms are known to complement chemotherapy and radiation therapy by countering the side-effects of cancer, such as nausea, bone marrow suppression, anemia, and lowered resistance.

    Polysaccharides are the best known and most potent mushroom-derived substances with anti-tumor and immunomodulating properties
