Now let’s turn to domestic, after more than 1 hundred years since the National Taiwan University Hospital founded, for the first time the National Taiwan University Hospital research team found that perhaps an experimental product can improve the immunity of the cancer patients. The research team carried out a human experiment in terms of Chinese medicine formula ‘Tian Xian liquid’ for the first time.

Among the 30 patients who suffered the advanced phase of breast cancer, one witness’s tumor shrunk due to the immunity increase.However, the Health Department also warns that the National Taiwan University Hospital does not apply medicine license for this research. It is an experimental product, which is totally different from the foodstuff-level ‘Tian Xian liquid’ selling on the market. Therefore, the patients should not believe the folk prescription and should go to see a doctor. If the manufacturer declares it has curative effect, a high fine of 1 million should also be collected.

This tiny bottle with coffee color and white cap, is the famous Chinese herbal medicine ‘Tian Xian liquid’ selling on the market, which is circulated among the cancer patients for 20 years. But it has never gained either Chinese or Western medicine license. However, currently it is said that the National Taiwan University Hospital for the first time confirms it is beneficial to enhance cancer patients’ immunity after fine adjustment of the formula.

It is allegedly that the National Taiwan University Hospital aims at adding and subtracting formula in terms of the Chinese herbal medicine. So far, it is known that some components in the formula belong to the herbal medicine, which can nourish one’s vitality and adjust immunity, such as codonopsis pilosula, fructus ligustri lucidi, astragalus, cordyceps sinensis and rhizoma atractylodis macrocephalae.

In 2008, after the dealer’s voluntary contact, the National Taiwan University Hospital looked for 44 breast cancer patients from 2009, June to 2011, June. 30 belong to the experimental group, and they drink the ‘Tian Xian liquid-P’ three times a day. The rest 14 drink the succedaneum. Findings show that the 30 people in the experiment group witness their immunity increased and among them, one sees her tumor shrunk and another one does not see the cancer cells expand any more. At the same time, the National Taiwan University Hospital notes that more researches need to be done to confirm the effect.

Codonopsis pilosula also helps Tonifying middle-jiao and Qi. We can not say it’s helpful to you when put 4 or 5 herbal medicines together. That should be well considered. The doctor reminds don’t try easily before it is qualified with medicine license. While the National Taiwan University Hospital turns to a low profile and does not give any response for this research.

However, various ‘Tian Xian liquid’ products including ‘Tian Xian liquid-1’ on the market are not the ‘Tian Xian liquid-P’ researched by the National Taiwan University Hospital. But they also belong to foodstuff, once declared to have the curative effect; the Health Department can make a 1 million fine. The cancer patients should pay more attention and appeal to the traditional cancer methods. Reported by Lin,yanan & Wu,tingyi from TVBS News.

“天仙液”助抗癌 台大醫院證實 很多癌症病友都知道,這款中藥天仙液,台大醫院在日前破天荒的以人體實驗,證明天仙液的配方,經過改良後能增強患者的免疫力,還有患者腫瘤變小了。不過,衛生署說,市面上的天仙液是食品,不得宣稱療效,如果違法將開罰100萬元。 中藥材黨參女貞子黃耆冬蟲夏草和白朮,就是傳說中可以抑制腫瘤的天仙液成分,而現在市面上也有這種號稱可以讓腫瘤縮小的天仙液產品,到底天仙液對癌症有沒有抑制作用,傳出臺大醫院改良業者的天仙液配方,叫作為天仙液,並對乳癌第四期患者進行人體實驗,實驗結果發現體內免疫細胞數量增加,代表免疫力增強更有體力抗癌,實驗中有1名患者腫瘤明顯縮小,另1人癌細胞沒有再增生,但是否證明天仙液-P有抑制癌細胞作用,台大研究團隊還是持保留態度。 中醫師也說也曾經遇到有病患使用,但效果不明顯,吳明珠,台大研究團隊私下解釋,實驗結果顯示天仙液-P可當晚期乳癌患者輔助療法,但天仙液-P配方跟市面上賣的天仙1號天仙液,配方畢竟不同,不能證明其他天仙液產品有一樣效果,民眾不該搶購,更何況市面上所販賣的天仙液,只有食品許可沒有藥症,衛生署也提醒沒有藥症宣稱療效就不合法,也提醒民眾不要輕易相信天仙液美名,經衛生署核可發藥症才安全。
