Maitake Products Named Research Sponsor of Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Maitake Products, Inc. (MPI), a leader of research and development of Japanese Maitake mushrooms and other medicinal mushrooms, was recently named a corporate cancer research sponsor of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
The awarding of this honor reflects the support that MPI is giving to the renowned cancer research and treatment center in its quest to improve methods for treating this deadly disease.
In 1999, Memorial Sloan-Kettering inaugurated a department called Integrative Medicine Service, which is committed to providing complementary medicine treatment modalities to patients, in conjunction with conventional cancer treatments.
This department is also responsible for carrying out clinical trials on promising complementary medicine treatments.
One of the studies currently ongoing involves an extract of the Maitake mushroom specially made for the study. The goal of this study is to measure immune system activation in breast cancer patients and side effects, if any.
