  • Patent number: 8906380
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed which are useful in increasing maturation of dendritic cells from CD14+ mononuclear cells, by contact with a composition comprising a fucose-containing glycoprotein fraction from Ganoderma lucidum. The extract can also be used for increasing production of a cytokine or a chemokine in a dendritic cell or CD19+ B cell. In addition, a fucose-containing glycoprotein fraction from Ganoderma lucidum can be administered to a subject identified as needing increased immunoglobulin, cytokine, or chemokine production.

  • Patent number: 6967311
    Abstract: A smolder pot capable of cooking food as heat source is removed. The smolder pot comprises a cooking pot. At least one heat accumulating disk is fixed to a center of a bottom of the cooking pot; the heat accumulating disk being retained with a gap from the bottom. When the bottom of the cooking pot is heat, the heat accumulating disk will be heated. Due to the gap between the heat accumulating disk and the bottom, no heat is transferred to the cooking pot directly. Thus the temperature of the heat accumulating disk is not effect by the heat dissipating of liquid in the cooking pot. Thereby the heat accumulating effect of the heat accumulating disk is helpful to the heating and temperature retaining of the cooking pot.
