Primary liver cancer is a malignant tumor occurred in the liver. China's annual incidence of about 10 million people. Cancer in male patients, the patients ranked third in the women fourth. The disease mortality rate is very high, second only to gastric cancer, lung cancer, the third door. As a result of hidden symptoms, early diagnosis, it will be difficult, according to some national statistics on the treatment of 3254 cases of liver cancer analysis, the efficacy of surgical resection is the best, but only in 9.3% of patients. At the same time, anti-cancer chemotherapy and radiation is not sensitive to anti-cancer effect, and there is a certain taboo, which makes Chinese medicine treatment of the disease of concern.
Modern Chinese medicine treatment of this disease began in the earliest cases reported at the end of 5O. Since this covers a wide range of diseases, harmful, and very early 70's attention, the Shanghai Cooperative Group of liver cancer in 11 districts of the 21 medical units of the 3254 cases of primary liver cancer clinical analysis, and various made a comprehensive evaluation of the treatment. Among them, Chinese medicine treatment mainly accounted for 28.7%, combined with traditional Chinese medicine combined with chemotherapy treatment a total of 66.5 percent, and the patient made a full analysis of Phase Ⅱ found in recent medical treatment more effective than chemotherapy. Application of chemotherapy combined traditional Chinese medicine, can improve the curative effect. Type in the cirrhosis patients, Chinese medicine treatment in other more prominent in the law. Into the 80's, Chinese medicine treatment of this disease has been the rapid development of the work. During this period a total of more than 200 papers published articles, which reported nearly 60 cases. Chinese and Western Medicine reported this disease for more than 10 articles, over a thousand cases of the treatment of cases; pure Chinese medicine treatment of paper more than 130 articles, treatment of cases of more than 4,000 cases. Chinese medicine has treated with chemotherapy for control in terms of side effects, quality of life, survival and other aspects of Chinese medicine treatment are excellent. Therefore, surgery for the loss of opportunities for the treatment of patients with Chinese medicine is all the more important. In rural areas, limited financial capacity, technical strength, medical equipment, such as conditions, Chinese medicine has become the main treatment. Clinical observation in expanding at the same time, a number of medical theory of traditional Chinese medicine for the disease to explore a lot of governance and the prevention of liver cancer with traditional Chinese medicine is also explored. In the diagnosis, many doctors who studied traditional Chinese medicine diagnosis methods, such as tongue diagnosis, pulse diagnosis, auricular points in the diagnosis of liver cancer, but also the use of the principle of Chinese medicine patients died of liver cancer rhythm studied Traditional Chinese Medicine Syndrome Differentiation and the relationship between objective indicators. In experimental research, through a variety of prescription medicine and in animal experiments the role of the cancer from different angles reveals the mechanism of Chinese medicine treatment prescriptions. All of these work in promoting the use of Chinese medicine to cure primary liver cancer has been a good role. In order to strengthen work in this regard, the Ministry of Health Medicine in 1990, the Secretary announced a "new medicine (TCM) in the treatment of primary liver cancer clinical research guidelines, the diagnosis standards-type differentiation, clinical stage, the provisions of efficacy standards. The principle of Chinese medicine treatment of liver cancer and the research work, very good guide.
