To evaluate the therapeutic effect of Compound Xuanju Capsule on type III prostatitis. A total of 242 patients with type III prostatitis diagnosed by the NIH criteria were randomly divided into an experimental and a control group of equal number, the former treated with Compound Xuanju Capsule + Tamsulosin Hydrochloride, and the latter with Quinolinone antibiotics + Tamsulosin and Hydrochloride, both for 6 months. After treatment, we assessed the therapeutic effects based on the NIH-CPSI scores and the improvement of relevant complications. All the 242 patients completed the treatment. The total effectiveness rate was 77.69% (94/121) in the experimental group, 71.56% (78/109) in those with complications. In comparison, it was only 47.10% (57/121) in the control group, 31.78% (34/107) in those with complications. Both the NIH-CPSI scores and the improvement of complications were significantly higher in the experimental than in the control group (P < 0.05). Compound Xuanju Capsule has a good therapeutic effect on type III prostatitis. Source

In this study, water-soluble polysaccharides were isolated from dried fruits of lycium barbarum. Gas chromatography-mass spectrophotometer (GC-MS) and Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy were used to characterize the compounds in polysaccharides from lycium barbarum (LBP). GC-MS analysis revealed that glucose and mannose were the main monosaccharides of LBP. Xylose, galactose, arabinose and galactose were detected in trace amounts. The Fourier-transform infrared spectra (FT-IR) of LBP revealed typical characteristics of polysaccharides. The pharmacological study indicated that LBP could enhance bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) in rats. RT-PCR studies had shown that LBP treatment resulted in increase in the mRNA expression of Col5a2 and Alpl in rat blood. Western blot analyses elicited a decreased Col5a2 and Alpl protein level after 45 days of LBP administration. Taken together, our results provide evidence that LBP increase bone gene expression, bone mineral density (BMD) and bone mineral content (BMC) in ovariectomized rats. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd.
