Chinese Mushroom May Help Treat Breast Cancer

Home » Chinese Medicine News and Research » Chinese Mushroom May Help Treat Breast Cancer

Scientists are studying the impact of a Chinese mushroom (Phellinus linteus, or song gen in Chinese) on breast cancer tumors.  Preliminary research shows that extracts from the mushroom reduced the growth of cancer cells and blood vessels that supplied the tumors.  The mushroom has also shown promising results for treating skin, lung, and prostate cancer. 

While this mushroom has been used in Asian medicine, researchers are unclear how the extract may be used in Western medical treatment.
