OBJECTIVE: To study Cordyceps (artificial fermented Cordyceps sinensis(Berk.) Sacc) powderin the treatment of asthma in the animal models. METHOD: Pulmonary function and airway inflammation in vivo were investigated. RESULT: Cordyceps, 5g.kg-1(ig), significantly inhibited bronchial challenge of ovalbumin-induced change of RL and Cdyn (P < 0.05) and inhibited antigen-induced increase of eosinophils in the BALF of rats (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: The results suggested cordyceps could be applied for the prevention and cure of asthma.
