Efficacy of sodium cromoglicate eye drops combined with yupingfeng granules in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis.

Abstract

PURPOSE:

To observe the clinical efficacy of sodium cromoglicate eye drops combined with Yupingfeng granules in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis.

METHODS:

A total of 118 patients with allergic conjunctivitis were randomly divided into a combined sodium cromoglicate and Yupingfeng Granule (treatment) group (n = 74) and a sodium cromoglicate (control) group (n = 44). Clinical efficacy of the two treatments was evaluated by observing the changes in patients' symptoms and physical signs before and after their respective treatments.

RESULTS:

Following treatment, the symptoms and physical signs related to allergic conjunctivitis were significantly alleviated in all 118 cases. The total efficacy of the combined sodium cromoglicate and Yupingfeng granule treatment was 91.9%, which was significantly higher than the value of 75.0% obtained with sodium cromoglicate alone (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Combined therapy of sodium cromoglicate eye drops and Yupingfeng granules had a high efficacy and no significant adverse reactions. Therefore, this treatment deserves to be considered for wide application in clinical settings.
