To compare the effect of combined therapy of Zhenqi Zhuanyin Decoction (ZQZYD) and timely intrauterine insemination (IUI) with that of using ZQZYD and IUI separately in treating patients of sterility with positive anti-sperm antibody (AsAb).


One hundred and three patients were randomly divided into 3 groups, 34 patients in Group A treated with combined ZQZYD and IUI, 34 in Group B treated with ZQZYD alone and 35 in Group C treated with IUI alone. The negative conversion rate of AsAb, pregnancy rate in patients, pregnancy rate in AsAb converted patients, as well as changes of TCM Syndrome and T-lymphocyte subsets were observed.


(1) The negative conversion rate of AsAb in the 3 groups was 76.47% (26/34), 82.35% (28/34) and 8.57% (3/35) respectively. (2) In Group A, the pregnancy rate was 41.18% (14/34), pregnancy rate in AsAb negative converted patients was 50.0% (13/26); in Group B, the respective criteria was 20.59% (7/34) and 21.43% (6/28) respectively; and in Group C, the pregnancy rate was 11.43% (4/35). The pregnancy rate in Group A was significantly higher than that in Group B or C (P < 0.01). (3) The effective rate on TCM Syndrome in Group A and B was 88.23% and 91.18% respectively (P > 0.05). (4) In Group A and B, CD4 decreased, CD8 increased and CD4/CD8 ratio decreased after treatment, which were significantly different from those before treatment and in Group C after treatment (P < 0.05).


Combined therapy of ZQZYD and IUAI shows a better effect in treating infertility with positive AsAb than that by ZQXYD or IUI alone.
