ISSN: 2319-7706 Volume 5 Number 10 (2016) pp. 891-909 Journal homepage: http://www.ijcmas.com Ganoderma lucidum is considered as one of the richest sources of natural antibiotics and various species of them inhibit the growth of a wide diversity of micro organisms. The pharmacological activities of Ganoderma lucidum, especially its intrinsic immunomodulating and antitumor properties have been well documented. Ganoderma has been used in the folk medicine of China and Japan for 4,000 years to… Expand

Chemical Characterization and Antitumor Activities of Polysaccharide Extracted from Ganoderma lucidum
TLDR
It is found that GLP reduced cell viability on HCT-116 cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner, which in turn, induced cell apoptosis, which is associated with activation of mitochondrial and mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that Ganopoly®, the polysaccharides fractions extracted from G. lucidum, enhanced the immune responses in patients with advanced‐stage cancer. Expand
Possible mechanism underlying the antiherpetic activity of a proteoglycan isolated from the mycelia of Ganoderma lucidum in vitro.
TLDR
This work suggests that GLPG inhibits viral replication by interfering with the early events of viral adsorption and entry into target cells, suggesting this proteoglycan appears to be a candidate anti-HSV agent. Expand

Hepatoprotective Evaluation of Ganoderma lucidum Pharmacopuncture: In vivo Studies of Ethanol-induced Acute Liver Injury
TLDR
GLP treatment is suggested to be effective in protecting against ethanol-induced acute hepatic injury in SD rats by modulating the activities of ethanol-metabolizing enzymes and by attenuating oxidative stress. Expand
