  • Description



    Maitake D Fraction enhances antitumor effects and reduces immunosuppression by mitomycin-C in tumor-bearing mice. D-Fraction, a polysaccharide extracted from maitake mushrooms (Grifola frondosa), has been reported to exhibit an antitumor effect through activation of immunocompetent cells, including macrophages and T cells, with modulation of the balance between T-helper 1 and 2 cells. We examined whether maitake D Fraction could decrease the effective dosage of the chemotherapeutic agent, mitomycin-C, necessary to control carcinoma in mice. Our results suggest that maiteke D-Fraction can decrease the effective dosage in tumor-bearing mice by increasing the proliferation, differentiation, and activation of immunocompetent cells and thus provide a potential clinical benefit for patients with tumors.
