Mannan is a polysaccharide of major significance. It is reported to constitute 30-50% of the cell wall of Candida and numerous other yeasts as well as some pathogenic bacteria. In some individuals it has been used as a substitute for Candida desensitization. In some research articles are reported that healthy blood has less than 1 mg of mannin per 15 ml of serum. Patients studied with chronic mucocutaneous Candidiasis had as much as 40 mg per 15 ml of serum. Other articles describe its ability to inhibit lymphocyte proliferation. Still other articles report PMN inhibition; the agents necessary for killing Candida and a number of pathogenic bacteria. Neutralization of mannin has had a beneficial effect on all Candida symptomology, and is frequently effective for chronic hives and anglo-edema.
