Reports Summarize Mononuclear Phagocyte System Study Results from
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research, "The polysaccharide had a molecular weight of 5.938 x 10(6) g/mol and was mainly composed of glucose. CP2-S had carbohydrate content estimated to be 100% using the phenol-sulfuric acid method."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Immunostimulating experiments in vitro indicated that CP2-S could stimulate nitric oxide production, phagocytosis, respiratory burst activity, and secretion of interleukin-1 beta and interleukin-2 of macrophages, suggesting that this water-soluble polysaccharide from the fruit body of C. militaris is a natural immunostimulating polysaccharide with potential for further application."
