Many mushrooms possess both excellent nutritional values and pharmaceutical properties. Since ancient times, medicinal mushrooms have been used in traditional medicine of Asian countries. Isolated and identified substances, particularly from Lentinus edodes (Berk.) Singer, Coprinus comatus (O.F.Müll.) S.F.Gray, and Flammulina velutipes (W.Curt.:Fr.) Singer are used in the treatment of immune system disorders, cancer, bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, etc. They are able to decrease high glucose and lipid levels in the blood and are recommended as neuro- and vasotonics, hepatoprotective and thrombolytic agents. However, the antiprotozoal and mitogenic activities of mushrooms have not been sufficiently investigated yet. Presented results, as a part of our Medicinal Mushrooms Myco-Pharmacological Screening Program (MMMPSP), concern the study of the antiprotozoal activity (APA) and mitogenic effects (MGE) of mycelium and fruiting bodies (FB) samples of Lentinus edodes, Coprinus comatus, and Flammulina velutipes.
