Explained by: Joe Hing Kwok Chu   按此看中文

Name of Formula: gu shen an tai yin


For pacifying the fetus and preventing threatened abortion. Threatened abortion is a condition of pregnancy, occurring before the 20th week of gestation, that suggests potential of miscarriage. Approximately 20% of pregnant women experience some vaginal bleeding, with or without abdominal cramping, during the first trimester. This is known as a threatened abortion. However, most of these pregnancies go on to term with or without treatment. Spontaneous abortion occurs in less than 30% of the women who experience vaginal bleeding. [1]

Objective: To observe gu shen an tai yin formula with western medicine therapy on threatened abortion in kidney deficient syndrome
Methods: we enlisted 54 cases of early pregnancy with threatened abortion with vaginal bleeding. The patients were randomly divided into treatment group of 30 cases and control group of 24 cases. Both groups were being monitored on serum human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and progesterone (P) . The treatment group were given gu shen an tai yin formula with western medicine, and the control group with just western medicine only. We then we compared the clinical efficacy.
The treatment group: markedly effective rate was 83.3%
The control group: markedly effective rate was 54.1%.
The difference of the two groups was significantly different (P <0.05).

The value of HCG and P of less than those of normal pregnancy, in the treatment group there were 10 cases. The abortion rate was 10%. In the control group, there were nine cases. The abortion rate was 55.6%. The difference of the two groups was significant (P <0.05). After treatment, HCG, and P increased in line with those of pregnancy. The treatment group was significantly higher (P <0.05). Conclusion: gu shen an tai yin formula used with western medicine to improve the HCG, and P levels serum of early threatened abortion and clinical markedly effective rate is better than using western medicine alone.
