A recent research carried out by the researchers from the Queensland University of Technology has claimed that turkey tail’ mushroom, which are used in Asia for its medicinal benefits, could help in combating prostate cancer.
Researchers have found that the compound polysaccharo peptide (PSP), which is extracted from the ‘turkey tail’ mushroom, was effective in restraining prostate tumor development in mice during early tests.
The researchers carried out the laboratory tests, in which transgenic mice that most likely developed prostate tumors were made to consume PSP for a period of 20 weeks. The results of the tests found that mice which were fed PSP had no tumor whereas mice which lack PSP had prostate tumor formation.
Ling, from the Institute for Biomedical Health and Innovation (IHBI) at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) said that no side effects of the treatment were reported.
The researchers said that the tests were conducted with the aim of detecting whether the use of PSP could stop the formation of prostate tumors or not. The researchers have claimed that these findings could be useful in developing a PSP treatment, which could completely control the growth of tumor development among the patients of prostate cancer.
