Hifas da Terra (HdT) is a biotechnology center focused on research and innovation with a high degree of specialization in the development of nutraceuticals from medicinal mushrooms. This know-how, based on extensive experience around the applications of Mycology to health (Mycotherapy), is the intellectual property of Hifas da Terra and has a high economic value.
- Research and innovation areas in applied Mycology:
- Human health
- Animal health
- Environmental rehabilitation
Biotechnology and innovation that crosses borders
Demonstration of the synergistic activity of HdT extracts with chemotherapy treatments in tumor cells.
Determination of the anti-migratory effect on tumor cells by different cellular assays.
Elucidation of the antiproliferative effect on human colon carcinoma cells from different extracts of cultivated fungal species (Fungitech Onco, 2015).
Identification by molecular methods of new strains of medicinal species with anticancer potential Reishi and Maitake, isolated in different forests of Galicia (Fungitech Onco, 2016).
Evaluation of the inhibitory potential of the fungal extracts included in the formulations of the Micosalud line on the main isoforms of CYP450 (CYP3A4, CYP2D6 and CYP2C9).
The test shows that, in the concentrations used, there is no interaction of the extracts of Hifas da Terra on the cytochrome P450 enzymes evaluated (Medina Foundation, Center of Excellence in Investigation of Innovative Medicines in Andalusia).
Start-up of the first clinical trial with patients in which they will select ingredients with medicinal properties to reduce the incidence of the metabolic syndrome (Feder-Innterconecta, 2017).
Compounds with anti aging effect antiaging
Development of a new serum formulated with extracts of fungi that has shown to have greater antioxidant activity than other serums in the market (CompetInnova, 2014).
