Medicinal Mushrooms in Cancer Survivorship
What you will learn
- Discuss the current understanding of medicinal mushrooms in cancer and survivorship
- Describe current findings of the systematic review of mushrooms in cancer
- Explain the application of evidence to clinical practice
Medicinal mushrooms have a long history of use in cancer treatment, and recent preclinical studies have shown promise. However, conflicting results have been reported in few studies. We present the results of a systematic review, where we analyze the available evidence on the use of medicinal mushrooms in cancer treatment. We assess their effects on survival, immunological outcomes, quality of life and adverse effect profiles. This review provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of knowledge and highlights the need for further research to clarify the potential benefits of medicinal mushrooms in cancer management.
