Medicinal Mushroom for Prevention of Disease of Modern Civilization

Description

Medicinal mushrooms are well recognized for their medicinal properties and have been used in traditional medicine for millennia. The medicinal effects attributed to fungi, based mainly on uncharacterized substances or extracts, include depression management, cerebrovascular disease management, Alzheimer’s disease management, and antianxiety, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, antihyperlipidemic or antihypercholesterolemic, hepatoprotective, and antidiabetic effects.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will promote the continuing efforts to further evaluate the effects and the potential usefulness of medicinal mushroom, including their active compounds. We are particularly interested in articles clarifying the novel active compounds for age-related disease by using both in vitro and in vivo tests in preclinical studies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Systematic review on the effects and potential usefulness of medicinal mushroom
  • Basic theories and experimental research of medicinal mushroom for disease of modern civilization
  • Development and testing of novel and effective compounds or composition derived from medicinal mushroom for disease of modern civilization
  • Investigation of mechanisms of action of medicinal mushroom to prevent disease of modern civilization in cellular or animal models
  • Toxicological studies and safety evaluation of medicinal mushroom used for disease of modern civilization treatment
  • Clinical investigations and observations of medicinal mushroom used for disease of modern civilization treatment
