Keywords: Chinese medicine leukemia
Leukemia is a malignant tumor of the hematopoietic system, commonly known as “blood cancer", China’s annual new leukemia patients in more than 40,000 people, is the young people the highest incidence of malignant tumors, and is one of the Ten high incidence of malignant tumors. Ancient literature in the field of traditional Chinese medicine “leukemia" in the name, in accordance with its fever, bleeding, anemia, liver and spleen, swollen lymph nodes and other symptoms, respectively, attributable to the febrile disease, hyperlipidemia, consumptive, M. scrofulaceum areas such as. Leukemia is divided into two categories of acute and chronic. Acute leukemia is divided into acute lymphoblastic leukemia and acute non-lymphocytic leukemia. Acute lymphocytic leukemia is divided into three subtypes of L1, L2, L3. Acute non-lymphocytic leukemia is divided into M1 ~ M7 seven subtypes of common chronic leukemia with chronic myeloid leukemia and chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Clinical treatment of leukemia, doctors mainly taken the chemotherapy killing leukemia cells, but another big dose can not be 100% complete destruction, so the root causes of residual leukemia cells always recurrent disease. In order to eliminate residual leukemic cells, improve immunity and anti-leukemia treatment in conjunction with traditional Chinese medicine, the body’s normal immune function in leukemia cells can completely eliminate residual leukemic cells is less than 106 / L. Chemotherapy killing leukemia cells, it is necessary to reduce the leukemia load, but dialectical look at the issue, not blindly killing. When patients with poor physical fitness, the resistance of the leukemia cells can not rush on chemotherapy, is necessary to cure the “disease", but also governance “Integrative effective, the cure rate is also high.
In Medicine and Integrative Medicine Research, Development, and gradually formed a systematic understanding of acute leukemia, as well as discernible disease dialectical combination therapy principles. Chinese medicine syndrome differentiation and effective single herb can induce differentiation of leukemia cells, promoting apoptosis of leukemia cells to correct the course of chemotherapy side effects, herbs can improve the body’s immune function, elimination of body residual leukemia cells and prevent recurrence of role.
Taken Integrative the efficacy of the treatment of leukemia has been significantly improved complete remission rate in children with acute lymphocytic leukemia in more than 90%, the cure rate of about 50%. ANLL M3 (acute promyelocytic leukemia) 90% complete remission, most patients can be cured, and other types of leukemia remission rate has reached more than 80%. Pure Chinese medicine treatment for chronic leukemia can complete remission, but also can prevent the rapid change; the for early chronic leukemia, oral Qiankun Capsule “, and detoxification Series decoction; the leukocyte higher, combined with chemotherapy may be appropriate.
In recent years, Chinese medicine treatment of acute leukemia great progress, mainly in the following aspects:
1. Inducing cell differentiation and apoptosis.
2. Correct chemotherapy side effects
3. Improve immune function.
Increased tumor cell sensitivity to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, can be used as a sensitizer for the treatment of refractory leukemia reversal.
After a large number of cases observed, Chinese medicine treatment of leukemia following:
1. Traditional Chinese medicine combined with chemotherapy, can increase the chemosensitivity, is the anti-drug-resistant.
Herbs can combat the side effects of chemotherapy, to protect the recovery of normal hematopoietic function of bone marrow, preventing chemotherapy drugs cause severe bone marrow suppression.
Herbal medicine can induce apoptosis in leukemia cells, promoting apoptosis of leukemia cells. The concept of apoptosis is programmed cell death, death means that the laws of its growth leukemia cells. Because of the occurrence of leukemia is because the cells lose their normal growth, the aging process, but malignant proliferation of leukemia cells one becomes two, two become four, has grown exponentially.
Herbs can induce leukemia cells to the transformation of normal cells, which means that the leukemia cells turn over a new leaf, so that the treatment of leukemia to achieve a good effect.
Must have a scientific attitude, so the Chinese medicine treatment of leukemia can not be negated, and should not be exaggerated fiction. In short, Integrative Medicine leukemia regarded as a good way.
