Abstract

肺癌是现今世界范围内发病率和死亡率最高的癌症之一,由于早期诊断困难,大部分患者确诊时已至中晚期,治疗非常棘手。西医多采用放疗或化疗,但治疗成效有限,且毒性作用大,故常寻求中医或中西医结合治疗。对20多年来的临床研究报告进行分析表明,单纯口服中药复方或与放化疗相配合,具有提高肺癌患者生存质量、改善体质、缓解临床症状、减轻放化疗副作用,以及带瘤生存以延长生命等作用,值得进一步研究和应用。

Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers and of the leading causes of human death worldwide.Most of patients with lung cancer are diagnosed at advanced stages as it is difficult to be detected in the early stage.Radio/chemotherapy serves as the major method for treatment of lung cancer in conventional medicine without satisfactory efficacy,but with a number of adverse effects.So,it is very popular in mainland China to employ integrated treatment of radio/chemotherapy and Chinese herbal medicine.Through analysis of the published reports in the past two decades,it was found that orally taking Chinese herbal medicine could significantly improve quality of life and body resistance,relieve clinical painfulness,reduce adverse effects of radio/chemotherapy,and prolong life-span of the patient alive with carcinoma in the body.
