OBJECTIVE Mushroom extracts are known to have immunomodulating and antitumor effects in humans as well as in animals. In the present study Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC), an extract obtained from several kinds of basidiomycetes was examined for its suppressive effect on thymocyte apoptosis induced by dexamethasone. METHOD Thymic apoptosis was evaluated by gel electrophoresis and by flow cytometry at 3 h after injection of dexamethasone to rats. RESULTS When given to rats at 4… CONTINUE READING
