Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the effect of Xiaoliu Tablet (XLT) in treating uterine myoma (UM) and the relationship between effect and the cellular immunological function of the UM patients.

METHODS:

Seventy-one UM patients by treatment with XLT was observed. The activities of natural killer (NK) cells of 50 patients and 30 normal women were determined.

RESULTS:

There were good effect in reducing the volume of myoma and improving the menses by XLT, especially in patients whose myoma were singly and small. The activity of NK cells of these patients (24.61 +/- 6.04%, n = 50) was significantly different from that of normal women (45.42 +/- 9.05%, n = 30), P < 0.01. There was a notable rise of NK cells of the patients (37.54 +/- 5.01%, n = 39), after the treatment of six months by XLT (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION:

Improving the immunological function might be one of the mechanisms of the effect of XLT.
