Objective To study the effect of Tibetan MedicineManu-Xitanggranules on the expression of prostaglandin E2 and TNF-a on adjuvant arthritis (AA) rats.Methods A total of 60 rats were randomly divided into the control group, the model group, the Aspirin group, the low-, medium- and high- dose Manu-Xitang granules groups (each group with 10). Complete Freund's adjuvant method was used for the adjuvant arthritis model except the control group. All the groups started treatment at 8th day, and the treatment last 20 days. The low-, middle- high-dosage groups were treated with 2.0, 1.0, 0.5g/(kg body weight) Manu-Xitang granules, while the the Aspirin group with ASP (0.27 g/kg), control and medol groups with the equal Volume saline. The body weight, the swelling of primary side of arthritis index were observed. The levels of PGE2 and TNF-α were measured by ELISA.Results At 6th, 12th, 18th day, compared with the model group, the body weights in Aspirin group, the low-, middle-, high-dosage groups significantly increased (P<0.05 or P<0.01); at the 6th day, the foot swelling (0.40% ± 0.18%, 0.50% ± 0.25%, 0.55% ± 0.35%vs. 0.85% ± 0.15%) in the Aspirin group, middle-, and high-dosage groups significantly decreased (P<0.05 or P<0.01). And the PGE2 (0.66 ± 0.31vs. 0.39 ± 0.11) and TNF-a (0.72 ± 0.24vs. 0.50 ± 0.15) in the high- dose group were significantly lower than the model group (P<0.05).Conclusions The Tibetan medicineManu-Xitanggranules could treat AA through the changes of PGE2 and TNF-a.
