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


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.


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.


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