The therapeutic efficacy of the choleretic mixture against the infantile hepatitis syndrome.


Observation was made on a control study of the therapeutic efficacy of the choleretic mixture in treating 35 cases of infantile hepatitis syndrome in comparison with that of the choleretic decoction. The ages, duration of the disease, severity of icterus and serum bilirubin level in both groups were comparable. The results showed that there was no significant difference in therapeutic efficacy between the two groups, however, the resolving time of skin icterus was faster in the choleretic mixture group than in the choleretic decoction group. The choleretic mixture was convenient, easy to store, and acceptable to infants for its small dosage, and no side effects, therefore, a desirable drug against infantile hepatitis syndrome.
