Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS:

In recent years, the clinical research about Compound Kushen Injection (CKI) treatment of Gastric cancer (GC) has been increased, but the conclusion is different. The aim of our study is to objective comment the efficacy and adverse effects of CKI treatment of GC.

METHODS:

We will retrieve the Randomized controlled trials from the following 6 electronic databases on their inception to April 2019: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wangfang and Chinese Biomedical Literature Database. Study selection and data collection will be performed independently by 2 reviewers. Cochrane Risk of Bias tool will be used to assess the risk of bias of included studies. The outcomes included overall response rate, complete response rate, 3-year progression-free survival rate, 3-year overall survival rate, and different types of treatment-related adverse events. We calculated the risk ratios as well as their 95% confidence intervals of these outcomes and pooled the results using RevMan 5.2 software and Stata 14.0 software.

RESULTS:

The results will be published in a peer-reviewed journal.

CONCLUSION:

The results of this review will be widely disseminated through peer-reviewed publications and conference presentations. This evidence may also provide helpful evidence for clinical practice and health policy-makers for the treatment of GC.
