Tests of the antiviral activity of I. obliquus grown in alder and birch was carried out against human influenza viruses A and B and horse influenza viruses A (strains A/H1N1, A/H3N2, A/Equine2, B/Yamagata/16/18). The black, thin external surface of fungus grown in birch had complete inhibition (100%) against all influenza viruses. The antiviral activity is thought to be mainly due to betulin, lupeol and mycosterols.
