Trials of Cloud Mushroom Extract for Immune Support, in Breast Cancer Patients and Healthy Subjects – Recruiting at Bastyr University, Seattle

  [ 75 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
www.ProHealth.com • October 20, 2008


Bastyr University, north of Seattle, Washington, is one of the world’s leading academic centers dedicated to clinical degree programs and research with a focus on the holistic and natural health sciences - including nutritional and herbal medicine.

Among the studies currently recruiting at Bastyr are several trials involving use of extract from the common cloud or “turkey tail” mushroom (Trametes versicolor) to boost and maintain the body’s immune response. Bastyr's trials employing this extract, which “has been used in Asia with encouraging results,” aim to further the understanding of its potential as “a cancer therapy beyond drugs and radiation.” One study is recruiting healthy subjects and two are recruiting breast cancer patients.

The trials, which will pay $20 per clinic visit and provide the extract free of charge, include:

A breast cancer study focused on finding out whether extract from the Turkey Tail mushroom might boost and maintain the immune response after drugs and radiation therapy. (Conducted in collaboration with the University of Minnesota.) For details, click here. Call Leanna Standish at 425-602-3434 for more information.

A study investigating the effects of a cloud/turkey tail mushroom supplement on the immune system of patients who have been diagnosed with estrogen receptor and progesterone receptor-negative breast cancer; have/will receive chemotherapy; and will begin radiation therapy. For details, click here. Call Erin Sweet, study coordinator at 425-602-3434 for more information.

An 11-week immune-response study investigating the effects of cloud/turkey tail mushroom on the immune system of healthy volunteers. For details, click here. For more information, call the Bastyr University Research Study Line: 425-602-3160
