Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To observe the effect of compound granule prescription of thunberg fritillary bulb in relieving the post-chemotherapy bone marrow depression in refractory acute leukemia (RAL) patients.

METHOD:

Two hundred and thirty eight RAL patients collected from 7 third-grade class-A hospitals were randomly divided into the treatment group and the control group. Both groups were treated with conventional chemotherapy. They were administered with compound granule prescription of thunberg fritillary bulb or placebo three days before chemotherapy for consecutively 14 days. A standardized chemotherapy course was a treatment cycle. The changes in peripheral hemogram of two groups were detected before and after chemotherapy.

RESULT:

After the treatment, the white blood cell counts of the two groups were significantly different (P < 0.05), but there was no statistical significance in qualitative comparison. Before and after the treatment, the difference of the white cell counts of the two groups detected had significant statistics (P < 0.05). The white cell counts of both groups declined after chemotherapy, but the treatment group decreased more significantly than the control group. Before and after the treatment, there were no statistical significances in quantitative and qualitative comparisons both in HGB and PLT. After the treatment, HGB and PLT contents of both groups declined, but there was no statistical difference between the two groups.

CONCLUSION:

Compound granule prescription of thunberg fritillary bulb can relieve the bone marrow suppression in RAL patients caused by the chemotherapy, which is mainly reflected by the slowdown of reduction in white blood cells.
