Prior to this study, we examined anti-platelet aggregation activity of ethanol extracts of several species of mushrooms using washed rabbit platelets, and found that extract of Hericium erinaceus potently inhibited platelet aggregation induced by collagen (data not shown).

To evaluate the growth of mushroom-producing fungi, treated SYP chips were inoculated with actively growing mycelia of Griofola frondosa, Hericium erinaceus, or Pleurotus ostreatus scraped from half the surface of an MEA plate.

and its prospect for cures of Alzheimer's disease, sarcoma, and positive effects on the immune system, and Chapter 10 describes Shiitake--Lentinus edodes in AIDS therapy and as a tool to prevent tooth decay.
To the Editor: The European hedgehog, Erinaceus
europaeus, is known to host a variety of tickborne pathogens, including the virus that causes tickborne encephalitis (1) and at least 3 species of the Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato group: B.
These animals originally arrived from Europe, Asia, and Africa, and although several species exist, 2 in particular are commonly seen as pets (3): the European hedgehog, Erinaceus
europaeus, and the smaller African pygmy hedgehog, Atelerix albiventris (3).
