Notes for this study:
Treatment of 5.4g Reishi polysaccharides daily for 12 weeks in advanced cancer patients was able to improve parameters of immunity (CD56+ cell count; no influence on CD4:CD8 ratio) and natural killer cell activity while suppressing TNF-a and IL-1 levels.

Responses to Phytohaemagglutinin were significantly improved, with NK cell activity increasing to 34.5 +/- 11.8% of baseline (placebo 26.6 +/- 8.3%)
