The alkaline soluble polysacchride AIOPA isolated and purii¬ed from Inonotus obliquususing gel i¬ltration was subjected to composition analysis and determined for the antitumor and immunomodulatory activitives. Based on the results of high performance size-exclusion chromatography (HPSEC), gas chromatography (GC) and infra-red (IR) spectrum, AIOPA consisted of rhamnose, xylose, manose, galactose, glucose and galacturonic acid in a molar ratio of 3.09:1.61:2.06:4.45:19.7:1 with a molecular…

Antitumor and immunomodulatory activity of Inonotus obliquus
TLDR
The antitumor and immunomodulatory mechanism of action is complex and it seems that stimulation of macrophages and induction of apoptosis in cancer cells is of great importance.
A polysaccharide from Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge improves immune function in gastric cancer rats.
Immunomodulatory and immunorestorative activities of β-d-glucan-rich extract and polysaccharide fraction of mushroom, Pleurutus tuberregium
TLDR
The results of these studies showed that P. tuberregium imparts immunostimulatory and immunorestorative effects that could be explained, in part, by the actions of its β-d-glucan constituent(s) on macrophages.
Supplementation with aqueous leaf extract of Morinda lucida enhances immunorestoration and upregulates the expression of cytokines and immunostimulatory markers
TLDR
The results of these studies show the potent immunostimulatory and immunorestorative properties of the aqueous leaf extract of Morinda lucida, which may explain some of the beneficial effects of the plant in the treatment of infections and immuno-inflammatory disorders.

TLDR
The anti-angiogenesis of GLPP may be a new mechanism underlying its anti-tumor effects and it is suggested that GLPP could not promote the T lymphocyte proliferation and neutral red phagocytosis of peritoneal macrophages of nude mice.
Immunomodulation and anti-cancer activity of polysaccharide-protein complexes.
TLDR
Polysaccharides or polysaccharide-protein complexes are considered as multi-cytokine inducers that are able to induce gene expression of vaious immunomodulatory cytokines and cytokine receptors and act as biological response modifiers.

TLDR
The present review analyzes the pecularities of polysaccharides derived from fruiting bodies and cultured mycelium in selected examples of medicinal mushrooms and concludes that high molecular weight glucans appear to be more effective than those of low molecular weight.
