Alternative medicine use has increased at a remarkable pace all over the world in recent years. Although herbal medicine for the treatment of asthma is becoming the focus of public attention, randomized studies had not been performed, even in Eastern countries including Japan. This study was designed to investigate whether one of the Japanese government approved herbal complexes Saiboku-to (TJ-96) is effective for the treatment of atopic asthma, and to investigate whether this protective activity is associated with a reduction in eosinophilic inflammation. A double-blind, randomized, crossover design was used. 이하 생략

Systematic review of randomized controlled trials of traditional Chinese medicine treatment of non-acute bronchial asthma complicated by gastroesophageal reflux
Author: Zhao YH, Liu ZL, Li LH, et al
OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness and safety of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment of non-acute bronchial asthma complicated by gastroesophageal reflux.
METHODS: We searched databases from MEDLINE, Cochrane Library, CNKI, VIP, CBM, Wanfang Data, and TCM Database Systems. All randomized, controlled trials (RTCs) of TCM treatment of non-acute asthma complicated by gastroesophageal reflux were included. Data were independently collected by two reviewers. 중략
RESULTS: Six RCTs were included, involving 304 patients with non-acute asthma complicated by gastroesophageal reflux. The treatment groups received Chinese drugs alone or TCM combined with standard Western medical treatment, and the control groups received standard Western medical treatment alone. Standard Western medical treatment included anti-inflammatory drugs and bronchodilators for asthma, and drugs to promote gastric peristalsis and inhibit gastric acid production for gastroesophageal reflux. Methodological quality was low in all six RCTs. 이하생략
