Ganoderma On The 'tuberculosis' May Have A Preventive Effect

- Aug 11, 2017-


You  have seen some tragedy in the drama of the role, first long cough unhealed, and later actually in a cough, cough up a blood ... ... the results were diagnosed as 'tuberculosis', that is, 'tuberculosis' , Must be isolated and recuperate, it will not be transmitted to others. In the early intervention of modern medical care, few people will be so serious, but the culprit of the disease, Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is indeed ready to show their skills in the low immunity. Now, from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences came Ganoderma lucidum spore powder and spores oil may be 'preventative' inhibition of Mycobacterium tuberculosis good news.

Chinese Journal of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical College published in January 2016 in the "Frontiers in Microbiology" study pointed out that the prevention of Ganoderma lucidum Ganoderma lucidum spore powder and spore oil extract, can inhibit Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) in small Reproduction and proliferation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the lungs and spleen.

Where the disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis, collectively referred to as 'tuberculosis'. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is mainly through the droplets of infection, in confined space and close to the strong contagion, our body of any organization and organs may be infected, but the infection of the lungs caused by 'tuberculosis' is the most common, serious The lungs were destroyed and killed.

In Taiwan, for example, the number of deaths due to tuberculosis was more than 600, but this figure was more than ten times the number of deaths caused by SARS in 2003. But SARS occasionally once, tuberculosis is with the paternity side, it is said from the ancient new device generation has not disappeared, even later because of the invention of BCG infection disease scale control, but still did not completely block it on the human Threat, not careless.

Do not think that infection of tuberculosis, it is understood that the global population of tuberculosis up to one third of the population, you and I may also be one of them, but the vast majority of infected people without symptoms (more than a month of chronic cough does not More, weight loss, fever, night sweats), the infection is also very low 'latent tuberculosis infection'.

In fact, as long as the immune system, Mycobacterium tuberculosis can be in the 'inactive' state, the problem in the low immunity, especially to accept, chemotherapy, or infection with HIV, Mycobacterium tuberculosis may have the opportunity Big one. So how to avoid infection, and how to effectively suppress the infection, are the focus of prevention and treatment of tuberculosis.

Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Beijing Union Medical College research team, first to C57BL / 6 mice and a small amount of Mycobacterium tuberculosis, similar to the human 'latent tuberculosis infection' animal experimental model, and further explore the role of Ganoderma lucidum anti-tuberculosis. turn out:

Mice were infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis at the same time, and the amount of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the lungs and spleen of the mice was treated with Ganoderma lucidum preparation (15 mg of oral spores and sporozoites daily for 16 weeks), and untreated There is no difference between groups. However, if the same dose of the same dose of Ganoderma lucidum in the first month before the start of the experiment (infection), the number of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the lungs and spleen of the mice can be effectively reduced, especially the Mycobacterium tuberculosis has just entered the first three To five weeks, the inhibitory effect is more significant.

It was also observed that the number of immune cells in the peripheral blood of mice, and the number of Mycobacterium tuberculosis proliferation, and the degree of lung and spleen lesions, and no correlation. In the mice infected with Ganoderma lucidum of ganoderma supplier before infection, the dendritic cells in the peripheral blood plummeted and the dendritic cells in the lungs increased significantly during the period of three to five weeks after infection with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This phenomenon may explain in part why Efficacy of Ganoderma lucidum in inhibiting the Mycobacterium tuberculosis in the lungs of mice.
