Chinese Herbal Medicine Danshen Formulations for Preventing Renal Disease in Henoch-Schonlein Purpura: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 05/21/2012
Zou C et al. – Danshen formulations may help prevent renal disease in children with Henoch–Schonlein Purpura (HSP) without serious side–effects. However, the evidence is of low quality, and thus there is insufficient proof to strongly recommend the use of Danshen formulations in children with HSP. Large, properly randomized, placebo–controlled, double–blind studies are needed to substantiate its use.
