In this issue, Dr. Stoyan Borisov presents his clinical assessment study on the effect of Coriolus versicolor supplementation on patients with Low-risk and High-risk HPV subtypes. Dr. Chris Newton (Ph.D) proposes a study on the potential role of mushroom nutrition as modulators of toll receptor-mediated immune response.
The enzyme researcher, Dr. Amin Karmali (Ph.D) presents a detoxification analysis (in vitro) on mushroom nutrition, outlining the superoxide dismutase activity, cytochrome P450, cytochrome P450 reductase and secondary metabolites activity of Grifola frondosa (Maitake), Ganoderma lucidum (Reishi), Coriolus versicolor and Cordyceps sinensis.

In this edition, we examine the use of Ganoderma lucidium (Reishi) in the management of histamine-mediated allergic response (hayfever) in adults and children. In addition, the role of Epstein-Bar Virus (EBV) in cancer growth is examined, with specific links to nasopharyngeal carcinoma, Burkett's lymphoma, Hodgkin´s disease and breast cancer. Dr. Rajendra Sharma details how practitioners could use EBV diagnostic tests to detect the EBV virus and we review the use of Coriolus versicolor supplementation in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (commonly associated with EBV infections).

In addition, an overview of Reishi (Ganoderma lucidum /Ling Zhi) is provided. Finally, the use of Coriolus-MRL and Cordyeps-MRL for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and increasing VO2 Max is outlined from the perspective of a MRL sponsored triathlete Chad Hawker.
