Abstract

Aims: To evaluate the clinical efficacy of Human Urinary Kallidinogenase (HUK) and Maixuekang capsule in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients. Methods: In this study, from January 2016 to July 2016, 60 patients with acute ischemic stroke were enrolled and 56 patients with complete information of whom 21 patients received HUK+ basic treatment (HUK group), 16 patients received HUK+ Maixuekang capsule + basic treatment (HUK+ Maixuekang group), 19 patients received basic treatment (control group). 0.15 PNA unit of HUK injection plus 100 ml saline in intravenous infusion was performed in the HUK group and HUK+ Maixuekang group, with once a day for 14 consecutive days. 0.75 g Maixuekang capsules were taken in HUK+ Maixuekang group, with three times a day for 14 consecutive days. The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) scores in three groups were analyzed 7 days after treatment. The modified Rankin Scale (mRS) scores in three groups were analyzed 12 month after the treatment. Results: No difference was found in the NIHSS scores, age, gender, and comorbidities between three groups before treatment (p > 0.05). Seven days after treatment, the NIHSS scores in the HUK group and HUK+ Maixuekang group were significantly decreased than before (p HUK = 0.001, p HUK+Maixuekang < 0.001), and lower than that in the control group (p HUK = 0.032; p HUK+Maixuekang < 0.001). Twelve months after treatment, good functional outcome rate (12 month mRS score = 2) in the HUK group and HUK+ Maixuekang group was significantly higher than that in the control group (p HUK = 0.049, p HUK+Maixuekang = 0.032). Conclusion: The treatment of HUK or HUK combined with Maixuekang capsule can effectively improve the neurological function and promote long-term recovery for AIS patients.
