Does anyone know if trichaptum abietinum can be used medicinally?

According to Robert Rogers in his book, "The Fungal Pharmacy", violet-pored bracket fungus (T. abietinum) shows activity against E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. A closely related species, the purple-toothed polypore (T. biforme), has been studied and has shown been shown to have anti-tumor activity.
