More on AHCC:
Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC), mycelia extracts of cultured basidiomycetes, was examined in animal models to relieve side effects, such as anemia, alopecia and liver injury induced by anticancer drugs. This is a Japanese mushroom extract, AHCC, and medical research shows it can reduce nausea, vomiting, pain, appetite suppression, liver damage, hair loss and immune suppression.
AHCC (Active Hexose Correlated Compound) was developed by the Amino-Up Chemical Company of Sapporo, Japan. It is made from a proprietary hybrid of Shiitake and other medicinal mushrooms grown with rice bran in a liquid medium (a controlled environment like hydroponic gardening for mushrooms), that is then fermented to extract a unique, low molecular weight compound, not common to medicinal mushrooms. The active ingredient in AHCC has been identified as a 5,000 dalton weight molecule with an alpha-glucan structure (a Dalton is a unit of molecular weight equal to one Carbon atom). In contrast, the immune enhancing compounds of most mushrooms are identified as 100,000 to 1,000,000 dalton weight, beta-glucan molecules. AHCC has been the subject of more than 29 published studies since 1986 and is used in over 700 hospitals in Japan, so there is a great deal of scientific evidence that AHCC not only helps to prevent the side effects of chemotherapy, but enhances its primary effectiveness as well.
In terms of side effects, several animal studies have laid the ground work for research in humans. A study published in the Proceedings of the American Association For Cancer Research in March of 1999 showed that AHCC was able to relieve the side effects of several standard chemotherapy drugs. Mice treated with fluorouracil (5-FU), cyclophos-phamide (CY) or both daily showed decreases in weight, blood count and bone marrow that were "significantly restored" by co-administration with AHCC. Mice treated with Mercapto-purine (6-MP), and methotrexate (MTX) showed decreased body weight, serum albumin, and liver functions, which were significantly improved when AHCC was administered together with the chemotherapic agents. "Severe" (50% to 100%) hair loss or alopecia caused by cytosine arabinoside (Ara-C) was reduced to "slight" when AHCC was taken simultaneously.
