OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of Xuebijing Injection in patients with severe pneumonia, and to explore the mechanism.
METHODS: Eighty cases of severe pneumonia are randomly assigned to the Xuebijing treatment (forty cases) and the control group (forty cases), with the same routine therapy provided in both groups. Clinical effective rates, inflammatory factors and organ function were observed in both groups.
RESULTS: The effective rate was higher in Xuebijing group than that of the control group (80.0% vs. 67.5%, P < 0.05). As compared with the control group, the LDH, alpha1-AG, alpha1-AT levels and the peak body temperature decreased markedly with the Xuebijing treatment going, and the secretion of TNF-alpha, IL-6, IL-8 was suppressed in Xuebijing group; but no significant difference was found in leptin level.
CONCLUSION: Xuebijing Injection may show a protective effect in patients with severe pneumonia. The mechanism is possibly with the decreased secretion of TNF-alpha, IL-6, and IL-8.
