ABSTRACT

Objective:To explore the application value of modified Shiquan Dabutang in the treatment of elderly patients with osteoporotic intertrochanteric fractures (OIFs) due to Qi and blood deficiency by observing its impacts on inflammatory and bone metabolism indexes. Method:Ninety-eight elderly patients admitted to our hospital for OIFs of Qi and blood deficiency syndrome from April 2018 to April 2020 were randomized into an observation group (<italic>n</italic>=49) and a control group (<italic>n</italic>=49). Following the proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) fixation, patients in the control group were treated with Guipiwan, while those in the observation group received the modified Shiquan Dabutang. The clinical efficacy, inflammatory and bone metabolism indexes, and complications were compared between the two groups after four weeks of treatment. Result:The levels of such serum indexes as fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2), osteoprotegerin (OPG), transforming growth factor-<italic>β</italic><sub>1</sub> (TGF-<italic>β</italic><sub>1</sub>), <italic>β</italic>-endorphin (<italic>β</italic>-EP), bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP), and osteocalcin (BGP) in the observation group after treatment were significantly elevated as compared with those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.05), whereas the serum tumor necrosis factor-<italic>α</italic> (TNF-<italic>α</italic>) and <italic>D</italic>-dimer (<italic>D</italic>-D) declined (<italic>P</italic><0.05). The TCM symptom score in the observation group after treatment was obviously lower than that in the control group, while the Harris Hip Score (HHS) was higher (<italic>P</italic><0.05). The overall response rate of the observation group was 93.88% (46/49), higher than 75.51% (37/49) of the control group (<italic>χ<sup>2</sup></italic>=6.376, <italic>P</italic><0.05). The total incidence of incision infection, deep vein thrombosis of lower limbs, and pulmonary infection in the control group was 24.49% (12/49), significantly higher than 6.12% (3/49) in the observation group (<italic>χ<sup>2</sup></italic>=6.607, <italic>P</italic><0.05). Conclusion:The modified Shiquan Dabutang is able to alleviate inflammation, regulate bone metabolism, promote bone repair, and reduce the incidence of complications in elderly patients with OIFs due to Qi and blood deficiency.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe the effect of modified Bazhentang on the nutritional status and immune function of patients with Qi and blood deficiency syndrome in neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) for gastric cancer. Method:One hundred and ten patients were randomly divided into observation group and control group with 55 cases each. Both groups accepted FOLFOX6 protocol. Patients in control group took Jianpi Shengxue tablets orally, 3 tablets/time, 3 times/day. Patients in observation group received modified Bazhentang, 1 dose/day. The course of treatment was six weeks in both groups. Before and after treatment, scores were graded according to patient generated-subjective global assessment (PG-SGA), Qi and blood deficiency syndrome, and the Revised Piper Fatigue Scale (PFS-R). Levels of serum total protein (TB), albumin (ALB), prealbumin (PAB), CD4<sup>+</sup>, CD8<sup>+</sup>, helper T lymphocyte 17 (Th17), regulatory T cell (Treg), immunoglobulin G (IgG), IgM, and IgA were detected before and after therapy. Body mass index (BMI) and fat free mass index (FFMI) were measured before and after treatment. Weight loss was recorded, and the acute or subacute toxicity of anticancer drugs was evaluated. Result:The degree of malnutrition in the observation group was lower than that in the control group (<italic>Z</italic>=2.401,<italic>P</italic><0.01). The levels of TB, ALB and PAB in the observation group were higher than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The CD4<sup>+</sup>, Treg and CD4<sup>+</sup>/CD8<sup>+</sup> levels in the observation group were higher than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The CD8<sup>+</sup>, Th17 and Th17/Treg levels were lower than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). Besides, the levels of IgM and IgA in the observation group were higher than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The PG-SGA score and weight loss in the observation group were lower than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The BMI and FFMI data of the observation group were higher than those of the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.05). The scores of PFS-R and Qi-blood deficiency syndrome were lower than those of the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The incidence of nausea and vomiting in the observation group was 45.45% (25/55), lower than 65.45% (36/55) in the control group (<italic>χ</italic><sup>2</sup>=4.452,<italic>P</italic><0.05). Conclusion:Modified Bazhentang can be used to assist gastric cancer patients with NAC, which can improve nutritional status and immune function, promote immune balance, reduce clinical symptoms and fatigue, and reduce chemotherapy toxicity and side effects, so it is worthy of clinical use.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To observe the effect of Dingkundan in adjuvant treatment of clinical symptoms, quality of life, immune function and prognosis of patients with radiotherapy and chemotherapy after endometrial carcinoma (EC) operation. Method:Patients were divided into control group (82 cases) and observation group (86 cases) according to random number table. A total of 75 patients in control group completed the study (4 patients fell off or lose visit, and 3 patients were eliminated), while 77 patients in observation group completed the study (5 patients fell off or lose visit, and 4 patients were deleted). After operation, patients got brachytherapy, external pelvic irradiation and chemotherapy. Patients in control group got Bazhenwan, 1 pill/time, 2 times/day, and those in observation group got Dingkundan, 7 g/time, 2 times/day. The course of treatment lasted for 4 months, and long-time follow-up data was recorded. Before treatment, and at the second and fourth month after treatment, deficiency of Qi and blood was scored. Toxic reactions after radiotherapy and chemotherapy were recorded, and incidence rate of acute and advanced radiation injury of bladder and rectum and toxicity of chemotherapeutic drugs at grade 3 or above grade 3 level were compared. And levels of T lymphocyte subsets (CD3<sup>+</sup>, CD4<sup>+</sup>, CD8<sup>+</sup> and CD4<sup>+</sup>/CD8<sup>+</sup>) were detected, European collaborative quality of life Cancer Core Scale (EORTC QLQ-C30) was evaluated, and expressions of pce125 (CA125), epididymis protein 4 (HE4), Dickkopf-related protein-1 (DKK1), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and transforming growth factor-<italic>β</italic><sub>1</sub> (TGF-<italic>β</italic><sub>1</sub>) were tested before and after treatment. The follow-up was made for every three months, and the progression (recurrence/metastasis) of patients was recorded. Result:Scores of deficiency of Qi and blood in observation group were lower than those in control group at the second and fourth week after treatment (<italic>P</italic><0.01). Incidence rates of acute and advanced radiation injury of bladder and rectum and toxicity of chemotherapeutic drugs at grade 3 or above grade 3 level and incidence rates of bone marrow suppression, gastrointestinal toxicity, neurotoxicity were lower than those in control group (<italic>P</italic><0.05). Five functional dimensions and overall quality of life score based on EORTC and QLQ-C30 in observation group were higher than those in control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01), and scores of three symptom dimensions were lower than those in control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). Levels of CD3<sup>+</sup>, CD4<sup>+</sup> and CD4<sup>+</sup>/CD8<sup>+</sup> were higher than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01), and CD8<sup>+</sup> was lower than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). Levels of CA125, HE4, DKK1, VEGF, MMP-9 and TGF-<italic>β</italic><sub>1</sub> were lower than those in the control group (<italic>P</italic><0.01). The disease progression rate in observation group was 18.18% (14/77), which was lower than 33.33% (25/75) in control group (<italic>χ</italic><sup>2</sup>=4.572, <italic>P</italic><0.05). Conclusion:In adjuvant treatment of patients with radiotherapy and chemotherapy after EC operation, Dingkundan can reduce the symptoms of Qi and blood deficiency syndrome and side effects caused by radiotherapy and chemotherapy, improve the quality of life and immune function, inhibit the expression of tumor markers and tumor growth factor, delay the progression of tumor and improve the prognosis.
