Suggests - Science Daily, 9/10/12 - "The
Coriolus versicolor mushroom, known commonly as the Yunzhi mushroom, has
been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2,000 years. The
compound in the mushroom that is believed to have immune-boosting properties
is polysaccharopeptide, or PSP ... We were shocked ... Prior to this, the
longest reported median survival time of dogs with hemangiosarcoma of the
spleen that underwent no further treatment was 86 days. We had dogs that
lived beyond a year with nothing other than this mushroom as treatment"
