ImmunoKinoko(TM) AHCC® Donated To Help SARS Victims In Hong Kong

Quality Of Life Labs Airships AHCC® To Boost Immune Response of SARS Victims

PURCHASE, NY -- In an effort to help the victims of SARS in Honk Kong maintain a healthy immune response, Quality of Life Labs, Inc., has made arrangements with the Hong Kong Ministry of Health to ship 300 bottles ($30,000 value) of ImmunoKinokoTM AHCC to assist in their efforts. Additional ImmunoKinoko will be provided over the upcoming months.

ImmunoKinokoTM AHCC contains Active Hexose Correlated Compound, a Japanese medicinal mushroom extract used to strengthen the immune system.  The ingredient is derived from a highly specialized manufacturing process developed in the mid-1980s that relies on the hybridization of several species of mushrooms cultivated in Japan.

“While no one knows what causes SARS yet, it is clear that the vast majority of diseases we come into contact with on a daily basis can be managed by the body’s immune system,” stated Fred Pescatore, M.D., M.P.H. and medical director of the AHCC Research Association. “By providing some of those who are suffering with ImmunoKinoko? AHCC, we hope we can help them remain healthy until a cure is discovered for this mysterious flu-like illness. Also, we would like to alert the public how important it is to strengthen the immune system during times of crises."

To date, more than 2,630 cases and 95 deaths have been reported in 17 countries in Asia, Europe and North America since mid- November, when SARS emerged in China.

ImmunoKinokoTM AHCC is packaged in bottles of 60 capsules, 500 mg each, with a suggested daily use of two to six capsules daily.

According to industry analysts in Japan, over 700 hospitals and medical clinics currently recommend AHCC to patients in that country as part of an immune support regimen.

Quality of Life Labs, sister company to Maypro Industries, Inc. located in Purchase, New York, is the sole U.S. distributor of AHCC®. For more information on the donation or ImmunoKinokoTM AHCC, visit or call 1.877.YES.AHCC (877.937.2422).
