Xiangtan County Health School, Human.
The therapy of 10% Cantharides extract in treating 50 cases of perennial allergic rhinitis (PAR) was studied. The extract was plastered and blistered on Dazhui, Neiguan point. It was observed by nasal mucosa provocative test, cells in nasal secretion test and serum total IgE test. The results showed that its effective rate was 88%, the allergic nasal mucosa provocative test of treated group alleviated obviously after the treatment (P < 0.01), the number of eosinophil and basophil in nasal secretion decreased (P < 0.01, P < 0.05); and the serum total IgE also reduced significantly (P < 0.01).
