ABSTRACT

Ganoderma lucidum has been recognized as an immunomodulatory natural product. This study investigated the effect of G. lucidum polysaccharide extract (Gl-PS) on the proliferation of mouse lymphocytes and the DTH (delayed type hypersensitivity) response test. Initially, we examined Gl-PS effect on proliferation of mouse lymphocytes in vitro, and then cell-mediated immune response was studied using the DTH test. Results indicate that Gl-PS 0.1 μg/ml can significantly increase proliferation of mouse lymphocytes in vitro. Finally, evaluation of the effect of Gl-PS on DTH response indicates that Gl-PS 100 mg/kg can increase DTH response against SRBC in BALB/c mice. We conclude that Gl-PS has a potent immunomodulatory effect and can be used for potentiation of the immune system against diseases, such as cancer, and other diseases in which the immune response has been weakened.
