To explore the effect of Chinese herbal medicine Baotai Granule (BTG, a self-made preparation) on CD antigen blocking efficiency, prolactin (PRL) and progesterone (P) in patients with recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA).


Thirty-four women suffered from RSA were treated with BTG, twice every day, 1 package (10 g) in each time by orally intake. Changes of the efficiency of serum blocking antibody in them to the CD antigen in their husband's peripheral T-lymphocytes before and after treatment were observed. And the changes of blood levels of PRL and P were also monitored.


Fetus had successfully protected in 30 women (88.2%), in them, the efficiency of blocking to CD3, CD4 and CD8 after treatment were all higher than that before treatment, and levels of PRL and P in peripheral blood increased along with the increase of gestational age, while no obvious change was found in those who failed to complete pregnancy.


Chinese herbal medicine could protect the fetus by regulating the response between endocrine and immunity network during pregnancy.
