Polysaccharides from the Medicinal Mushroom Cordyceps taii Show Antioxidant and Immunoenhancing Activities in a D-Galactose-Induced Aging Mouse Model

Figure 4

Effects of the aqueous polysaccharide fractions of C. taii on the immune function of D-galactose-induced aging mice. (a) T lymphocyte proliferation in spleen, (b) B lymphocyte proliferation in spleen, (c) phagocytic ratio of peritoneal macrophages, (d) phagocytic index of peritoneal macrophages, and (e) IgG content of venous serum. The normal group was administered with normal saline s.c. and water orally. The model group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and water orally. The positive control group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and vitamin C (100 mg/kg) orally. The APCT group was administered with D-galactose (120 mg/kg, s.c.) and APCT (100, 200, and 400 mg/kg) orally. All drugs were administered for 45 d. The values shown are the mean ± SD of 10 mice. *P < 0.05 and **P < 0.01 versus the model group.
