OBJECTIVE: To make a study of the effect of Chaihu Shihuang soup on blood serum level TNF, IL-6 and IL-10 of severe acute pancratitis.
METHOD: Sixty SAP cases were divided at random into treatment group and control group (30 cases each). The treatment group were given chai-hu-shi-huang-soup once a day; the control group were given Dachaihu soup once daily, with both treatment period for 7 days. The tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin level 6 (IL-6) and 10 (IL-10) of both groups were determined before and after the treatment. We also had 30 healthy cases.
RESULT: IL-10 level in both groups was lower than healthy group while TNF-alpha and IL-6 were higher than healthy group (P<0.01). After treatment, the treatment group's TNF-alpha, IL-6 level were comparatively lower than that in the control group (P<0.01), and IL-10 level were clearly higher than that of the control group (P<0.01), comparison of the treatment group before treatment (P<0.01).
CONCLUSION: Chaihu Shihuang soup can significantly regulate cytokine and improve early recovery of SAP.
