Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To study the effective orally taken medicine in treating the leukopenia.

METHODS:

Ninety cases of leukopenia induced by chemotherapy were divided into 3 groups. They were test group treated with Shengbaikuai Decoction (SBK), control group and blank group. Their efficacies were compared with each other, 25 cases with nonchemotherapy were also observed.

RESULTS:

WBC count and absolute neutrophil count (ANC) in test group were higher than those of other groups immediately after treatment and 2 weeks later (P < 0.01). The marked effective rate and total effective rate of test group after 2 weeks were 60.0% and 80.0% (P < 0.001) respectively, which were significantly higher than those of other groups. WBC and ANC count after treatment and 3 weeks later were higher than those before treatment in nonchemotherapy group (P < 0.001). The marked effective rate and total effective rate 3 weeks later were 64.0% and 80.0% respectively.

CONCLUSIONS:

SBK could increase WBC count rapidly and definitely without apparent side effect.
