Inhibitory effects of ergosterol isolated from the edible mushroom Hypsizigus marmoreus on TPA‐induced inflammatory ear oedema and tumour promotion in mice
The isolates showed inhibitory activity against 12‐O‐tetradecanoylphorbol‐13‐acetate induced ear inflammation in mice, and ergosterol markedly inhibited tumour promotion in a two‐stage carcinogenesis experiment, suggesting these sterols may be useful in developing an effective method of cancer prevention.
