Default Mushroom Lowers PSA in Prostate Cancer

The research comes from the Beckman Research Institute and the Department of Medical Oncology and Experimental Therapeutics at the City of Hope National Medical Center located in Duarte, California. Here researchers have become convinced from laboratory trials that mushroom therapy may provide hope for prostate cancer sufferers with advancing PSA levels.


The mushroom used was Agaricus bisporus – also referred to as white or button mushrooms. These are the common mushroom found at the supermarket or added to most dishes in restaurants. It is by far the most prolifically grown commercial mushroom.

Some of the patients experienced what the researchers called a “complete response.” This means their PSA levels went down so far that their PSA levels were “undetectable.” Furthermore, these undetectable PSA levels continued for 30 months in one patient and 49 months in another patient.

Furthermore, those who experienced either a complete response or a partial response also saw increased immune strength. This is specific in interleukin-15 and myeloid-derived suppressor cells – both important in fighting prostate cancer or preventing its recurrence.
