The following Chinese article is by Jau-Shin WU, M.D., Ph.D

以下文 章是吳昭新醫師編著

  • 小柴胡湯是一種中藥、漢方,在我國和日本一向都用於治療慢性肝炎。
  • 因小柴胡湯和干擾素同時使用時容易罹患間質性肺炎,所以日本醫界一直都警告兩者不可同時使用。
  • 今天(西元二零零零年一月十四日)日本厚生省鑑於過去兩年間的調查報告,有五十位病人被懷疑因服用小柴胡湯引起副作用而發生間質性肺炎,其中 有八人 死亡,並有五人是肝硬化和肝癌病人,因此在十四日通報全國醫療機構禁止對於肝硬化及肝癌病人使用小柴胡湯。雖然間質性肺炎經過適當的治療一段時 間後會痊癒, 但是肝硬化及肝癌病人因體力差而會導致死亡。
