  • Agaritine (A), an ingredient of the cultivated mushroom of commerce Agaricus bisporus, was administered by subcutaneous injection to two groups of randomly bred Swiss mice. In the first group the animals of both sexes were treated at a 100 μg/g body weight basis five times at weekly intervals, while in the second group the mice received a single A treatment of 100 μg/g body weight for females and 50 μg/g body weight for males. The administration of the compound resulted in no detectable… CONTINUE READING
