carboxymethyl-glucan (cm-G) is a water-soluble derivative of β(1-3)(1-6) glucan that is well known for its immunostimulant and hematopoiesis-enhancing activities. in this clinical trial, we assessed the effects of oral cm-G administration on the peripheral blood cells of patients with advanced prostate cancer, and examined its ability to alter hepatic and renal function. after cm-G administration, the total leukocyte count increased significantly (p≤0.02), with no associated changes in the… CONTINUE READING
