Objective: The Dengzhan Shengmai (DZSM) capsule is a commercially available type of Chinese herbal medicine frequently administered to improve neurological impairment after stroke. Its ability to prevent recurrent stroke, however, has not been determined. This study therefore evaluated the ability of DZSM as an add-on to conventional secondary preventive agents to prevent recurrent ischemic stroke.

Methods: In this randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, conducted at 83 hospitals in Mainland China, 3143 patients in 14-180 days after the initial onset of ischemic stroke, were randomly allocated to the DZSM (0.36 g, twice daily for 12 months) or the placebo group. All patients in both groups received standard secondary preventive medications. The primary outcome was the 1-year incidence of stroke. Between group differences were assessed using the Cox proportional hazards model.

Results: Intent-to-treat analysis showed that 58 (3.8%) participants in the DZSM group and 82 (5.4%) in the placebo group experienced new stroke events (hazard ratio = 0.70, 95% confidence interval = 0.50-0.98, P = 0.036). The type and incidence of adverse events were similar in the DZSM and placebo groups.

Conclusions: The addition of DZSM capsules to standard secondary preventive agents provides additional benefits after the initial onset of ischemic stroke, reducing recurrent stroke without increasing severe adverse events. However, further study is needed to elucidate the role of DZSM on the updated practice of conventional secondary prevention for ischemic stroke.

Corn silk decoction for blood lipid in patients with angina pectoris: A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Phytother Res 2019 Nov 18;33(11):2862-2869. Epub 2019 Aug 18.

Hospital of Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chengdu, China.

The aims of this study were to evaluate the efficacy of corn silk decoction on lipid profile in patients with angina pectoris. PubMed, Cochrane, Embase, Google Scholar, Chongqing VIP Chinese Science and Technology Periodical Database, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, and Wanfang database were searched up to January 2019 for randomized controlled trials that assessed the impact of corn silk decoction on total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients with angina pectoris. Study evaluation and synthesis methods were in accordance with the Cochrane Handbook, and data were analyzed using Review Manager (version 5.3) software. Random effects model was applied in this systematic review and meta-analysis to compensate for potential heterogeneity among the included studies. A total of four randomized controlled trials were eligible for meta-analysis. Pooled results of these studies indicated that corn silk decoction might improve high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and reduce total cholesterol, triglycerides, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in patients with angina pectoris. Subgroup analyses showed that corn silk decoction or modified corn silk decoction plus conventional pharmaceutical treatment could have favorable effects on blood lipids. However, the lack of blinding in most studies may have led to overestimation of these effects. Further studies with better design are needed to confirm these findings.

Effects of Xuebijing Injection for Patients With Sepsis-induced Acute Kidney Injury After Wenchuan Earthquake.

Altern Ther Health Med 2017 Mar;23(2):36-42

Context • Earthquakes are devastating disasters that have claimed countless lives in the past, partially owing to the danger of direct and indirect injuries to vital organs. In the deadly earthquake that occurred in Sichuan Province of China on May 12, 2008, some victims suffered from severe damage to multiple organs and tissue and developed sepsis, a systematic inflammatory reaction resulting from infection and trauma. Xuebijing injection (CCXG) could beneficial for improvement of clinical symptoms in those patients, but no research has yet examined its potential. Objective • The study intended to investigate whether a combination of conventional treatment and CCXG was superior to conventional treatment alone, or the control group (CG), in the treatment of clinical symptoms in patients with sepsis-induced acute kidney injury (AKI). Design • The study retrospectively analyzed the medical records of individuals who were injured in an earthquake that occurred in the Sichuan Province of China on May 12, 2008, and who developed AKI. Setting • The study took place in the hospital associated with Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine (Chengdu, Sichuan, China). Participants • Participants were 55 injured individuals who were treated at the hospital. The CG included 27 patients and the CCXG group included 28 patients. Intervention • Both the intervention group (CCXG group) and the CG received the conventional treatment. The CCXG group was also given intravenous drips containing 100 mL of CCXG. The CG was given 100 mL of a 10% normal saline injection in addition to conventional treatment. Both received the treatments within 30 to 40 min, 3 ×/d. Outcome Measures • Blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatine phosphate kinase (CPK), serum creatinine (Cr), interleukin 1 (IL-1), and interleukin 6 (IL-6) were measured before treatment and on days 5, 7, and 10 after treatment. Results • The levels of CPK, BUN, Cr, and IL-6 for both groups were significantly lower than at baseline on day 5, 7, and 10 after treatment (P < .05). The levels of the CCXG group were significantly lower than those of the CG group on days 5, 7, and 10 (P < .05). Conclusions • As a supplement, CCXG is an effective method of improving the clinical symptoms of sepsis-induced AKI.

Effect of Panax notoginseng in patients with multiple fractured ribs and pulmonary contusions caused by the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake.

Forsch Komplementmed 2014 9;21(6):360-4. Epub 2014 Dec 9.

Orthopedics Department, Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, Chengdu, Sichuan, China.

Background: The aim of this study was to investigate whether the combination of conventional treatment and Panax notoginseng (PN group) is superior to conventional treatment alone (CG group) in reducing the clinical symptoms of patients with multiple fractured ribs and pulmonary contusions.

Patients And Methods: We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of patients treated for multiple fractured ribs and pulmonary contusions with either conventional treatment (n = 17) or P. notoginseng (n = 18). Visual analog scale (VAS) pain scores and arterial oxygen saturation were measured at baseline and at 1 and 2 weeks following treatment. The duration of mechanical ventilation, systemic analgesics, and hospital stay were also recorded.

Results: VAS scores in the PN group were lower than in the CG group at 1 week (p < 0.01) and at 2 weeks (p < 0.05). Arterial oxygen saturation in both groups was higher after treatment than at baseline (p < 0.05), but there was no statistically significant difference between the 2 groups (p > 0.05). The duration of mechanical ventilation, systemic analgesics administration, and hospital stay in the PN group was remarkably decreased as compared to the CG group (p < 0.05).

Conclusion: Combining conventional treatment and P. notoginseng seems to be an efficient method that can improve the clinical symptoms of multiple fractured ribs and pulmonary contusions.
