    Abstract

    Five hundred and fifty-seven patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma were divided at random into two groups: group A, chinese herb group to whom radiotherapy was given in association with Pheretima Asiatica, chinese herb Salvia Miltiorrhiza Mixture and Stauntonia Chinensis; group B, control group to whom radiotherapy alone was given. Short-term results revealed that the CR rate of the primary foci in group A was obviously superior to that of group B(P<0.005) both clinically and on CT scan. However, there was no significant difference between two groups regarding shrinkage of cervical lymphadenopathy (P>0.05).
