: Yang DQ, et al.
Publication: Zhongguo Zhong Xi Yi Jie He Za Zhi. 2005 Aug;25(8):740-2.

The authors wanted to test whether Pifubing Xuedu Pill (PXDP) combined with Diyin Tablet (DYT) were effective in the treatment of psoriasis. In order to do this, they enrolled 60 patients who were randomly divided into the treated and control groups. Both groups were given DYT, however only the treated group was given PXDP for 1 month.

The authors found that in the treated group had a clinical cure rate of 60% and a total effective rate of 73.3%, detailed below:

  • 7 patients were completely cured
  • 11 patients were basically cured
  • 4 patients were rated markedly effective
  • 7 patients had improved
  • 1 patient had no effect (ineffective treatment)

The control group had a clinical cure rate of 23.3% and the total effective rate of 53.3%, detailed below:

  • 3 patients were cured
  • 4 patients were basically cured
  • 9 patients were marked markedly effective
  • 10 patients had improved
  • 4 patients had no effect (ineffective treatment)

No statistically significant difference was shown in comparison of the total effective rate between the treated and control groups, however there was statistically significant difference in the clinical cure rate.

The toxic and adverse side effect in the treated group was lower than that of the control group.

The authors concluded that DYT in combination with PXDP had better therapeutic effect, higher efficacy, quicker initiation, and less toxic side effects than DYT alone.

Editor’s Note: Pifubing Xuedu pill and diyin tablets are traditional Chinese herbal medicines.
