Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

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).

METHODS:

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.

RESULTS:

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.

CONCLUSION:

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