Objective:To evaluate the clinical efficacy and safety of Longmu Zhuanggu granule for the treatment of children recurrent respiratory infection due to lung-spleen Qi deficiency. Method:This multicenter stratified, block-randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, positive drug (pidotimod granule) parallel controlled, and non-inferiority trail intended to included 240 children patients and divided them into the experimental group (<italic>n</italic>=120) and the control group (<italic>n</italic>=120) at the ratio of 1∶1. Patients in both groups were treated for eight successive weeks and followed up for 12 months. The cure rates, numbers of respiratory infections, average courses of disease, curative effects of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) syndrome, curative effects of individual symptoms, curative effects of immune indexes, and safety indexes between the two groups were observed and compared. Result:A total of 237 subjects were collected from 10 research centers, including 119 cases in the control group and 118 in the experimental group. There were 236 cases enrolled into the full analysis set (FAS), 210 into the per-protocol set (PPS), and 236 into the safety set (SS). The baseline data of the two groups were not significantly different from each other, indicating that they were comparable. The cure rates of the experimental group and control group were 75.21% (88/117) and 73.95%(88/119), respectively, with the 95% confidence interval (CI) of difference between the two groups being 1.26% (-9.85%,12.37%) for FAS and 3.81% (-6.28%,13.90%) for PPS. The 95% CI fell within the 10% non-inferiority margin, implying that non-infertility test of the cure rate in the treatment of endpoint disease was valid, and the conclusions of FAS and PPS analysis were consistent. There was no significant difference in the number or course of upper respiratory infection, bronchitis, and pneumonia. The difference in curative effects of TCM syndrome between the two groups after four weeks of treatment was not remarkable. After eight weeks of treatment, the total effective rate of the experimental group was 84.62%(99/117), statistically higher than 78.15%(93/119) of the control group(<italic>χ</italic><sup>2</sup>=-3.26,<italic>P</italic><0.05). There were no significant differences in the disappearance rates of individual symptoms between the two groups after four weeks of treatment. After eight weeks of treatment, the experimental group and control group exhibited the disappearance rates of 67.50%(54/80) and 47.37%(36/76) for shortness of breath and laziness to speak, 75.00%(54/72) and 53.33%(40/75) for poor appetite, 54.55%(60/110) and 37.84%(42/111) for hyperhidrosis, respectively, with obviously better outcomes observed in the experimental group (<italic>P</italic><0.05,<italic>P</italic><0.01). The inter-group comparison revealed significant differences in immune indexes after eight weeks of treatment. As demonstrated by comparison with the situations before treatment, IgA, IgG, IgM, and CD4 did not change significantly after treatment. Except for CD8 in the experimental group (<italic>P</italic><0.05), there was no significant difference in other immune indexes before and after treatment There was no significant difference in the incidence of adverse reactions. Conclusion:Longmu Zhuanggu granule is not inferior to pidomod granule in the treatment of children recurrent respiratory infection due to lung-spleen Qi deficiency, and it exhibits good safety, implying its promising clinical application value.

El secuestro pulmonar es una malformación congénita del tracto respiratorio inferior, rara e importante. En niños y adultos suele presentarse con infecciones pulmonares a repetición o crónicas severas. Se describió un caso de una paciente de 19 años de edad que tuvo un cuadro de sepsis respiratoria bajas a repetición. En los estudios de imágenes de tórax se evidenció opacidad homogénea en hemitórax derecho. Fue intervenida quirúrgicamente; se le realizó una lobectomía inferior derecha la cual fue diagnóstica para secuestro pulmonar, con evolución satisfactoria(AU)

Pulmonary sequestration is a rare and important congenital malformation of the lower respiratory tract. In children and adults, it usually presents with severe chronic or repeated lung infections. A case of a female 19-year-old patient who had recurrent lower respiratory sepsis is reported. Homogeneous opacity was evident in the chest imaging studies in the right hemithorax. She underwent surgery. A lower right lobectomy was performed, which was diagnostic for pulmonary sequestration, with satisfactory evolution(AU)

OBJECTIVE:To observe clinical efficacy of carboxymethyl starch in the treatment of recurrent respiratory infection (RRI)children. METHODS:110 RRI children were selected and randomly divided into observation group and control group,with 55 children in each group. Control group was given routine treatment,such as anti-infection,anti-virus,abatement of fever,reliev-ing cough,phlegm transformation and etc. Observation group was additionally given Carboxymethyl starch sodium solution (7 ml for 7 year-old)on the basis of control group. Both groups received consecutive treatment for 3 months. The changes of cellular immunity function index CD4+,CD8+ and CD4+/CD8+ and humoral immunity index IgG,IgA and IgM were observed in 2 groups before and after treatment,and clinical efficacy was evaluated in 2 groups. RE-SULTS:There was no statistical significance in CD4+,CD8+and CD4+/CD8+levels of control group before and after treatment(P>0.05);after treatment,CD4+ and CD4+/CD8+ of observation group obviously increased,while CD8+ level obviously declined;the observation group was better than control group,with statistical significance (P0.05);after treatment,IgG,IgA and IgM levels of control group increased significantly,and the observation group was better than control group,with statistical significance (P<0.05). Total effective rate of observation group was 92.73%,which was much higher than that in control group (78.18%),with statistical significance(P<0.05). CONCLUSIONS:Carboxymethyl starch has definite therapeutic efficacy on RRI,and can obvi-ously improve cellular and humoral immunity function.
