Medicinal Question: Piptoporus Betulinus
    #3959921 - 03/23/05 03:56 PM (12 years, 8 days ago)

I'm curious,

Does anyone know anything about the medicinal qualities of the common Birch Polypore? I've checked it out on the Web, and found that the Tyrolean Iceman was discovered with a piece of a piptoporus in some kind of medicianl kit. I've read that it is styptic and an astringent. Does anyone have any other information? I've found only this link so far. I am a serious student of Mycology, particularly intereted in the medicinal qualities of our fungal friends. any help would be appreciated

Thank you,
TZ

Have found this link where it says that Piptoporus betulinus produces a antibiotic called Piptamine.

Also the summary in this link might be interesting:

Quote:

The cytotoxic activity of ether extract from fruiting bodies of P. betulinus was studied. The tested substance at concentration of mg/ml significantly decreased viability of various human tumor cell lines (thyroid carcinoma, neuroblastoma, breast carcinoma, larynx carcinoma and cervix carcinoma) in time- and dose-dependent fashion. Cell cycle analysis revealed that antitumor activity was a result of blockade of cell cycle S-phase.
