Introduction

  • Mahuang-Fuzi-Xixin Decoction (MFXD) is a traditional Chinese medicine formula used for various clinical applications.

  • It is commonly used to treat allergic rhinitis, particularly in reducing symptoms like sneezing and nasal itching.

  • MFXD has shown effectiveness in regulating immune responses, particularly by balancing Th1 and Th2 cells.

  • The decoction is also used in critical care medicine for conditions like hyperpyrexia after tracheotomy and severe pain.

  • MFXD has applications in treating Yang deficiency and exogenous wind-cold syndrome, including conditions like bradyarrhythmia and sinus bradycardia.

  • It is effective in treating cold-wet type lumbar disc herniation and has shown potential in improving heart rate and rhythm in slow arrhythmia patients.

  • MFXD can ameliorate lung microbiota dysbiosis and restore nasal mucosal epithelium and lung barrier function in allergic rhinitis models.

Allergic Rhinitis Treatment [1]

  • MFXD is effective in treating allergic rhinitis by reducing symptoms like sneezing and nasal itching.

  • It regulates immune responses by balancing Th1 and Th2 cells, reducing serum levels of IFN-γ and IL-4.

  • MFXD has shown to decrease the frequency of sneezing and nasal scratching in rat models.

  • The decoction reduces serum levels of total IgE and histamine, which are markers of allergic reactions.

  • MFXD can restore nasal mucosal epithelium and lung barrier function, improving overall respiratory health.

Critical Care Applications [2]

  • MFXD is used in critical care medicine for conditions like hyperpyrexia after tracheotomy and severe pain.

  • It is effective in treating nosocomial infections and fever in critical care settings.

  • The decoction can alleviate symptoms of shock, heart failure, and renal failure.

  • MFXD is often administered continuously via stomach tube in critical care patients.

  • It has shown potential in treating diabetic peripheral neuropathy and severe and migratory arthralgia.

Yang Deficiency and Wind-Cold Syndrome [2]

  • MFXD is traditionally used to treat Yang deficiency and exogenous wind-cold syndrome.

  • It is effective in treating conditions like bradyarrhythmia, sinus bradycardia, and sick sinus node syndrome.

  • The decoction can alleviate symptoms like dark complexion, chills, cold limbs, and listlessness.

  • MFXD is used to treat conditions like asthmatic cold, rhinitis, and bronchial asthma.

  • It has shown effectiveness in treating optic neuritis, optic atrophy, and sudden blindness.

Lumbar Disc Herniation [3]

  • MFXD is used in the treatment of cold-wet type lumbar disc herniation.

  • It has shown effectiveness in reducing pain and improving mobility in patients with lumbar disc herniation.

  • The decoction can alleviate symptoms like lower back pain and joint pain.

  • MFXD is often used in combination with other traditional Chinese medicine treatments for better results.

  • Clinical studies have shown significant improvement in patients treated with MFXD for lumbar disc herniation.

Heart Rate and Rhythm Improvement [2]

  • MFXD is effective in improving heart rate and rhythm in patients with slow arrhythmia.

  • It can significantly alleviate symptoms of bradyarrhythmia and sinus bradycardia.

  • The decoction has shown potential in treating second and third degree atrioventricular block.

  • MFXD can improve heart rate and rhythm in a short period of time.

  • However, long-term prognosis may not be improved, and symptoms may recur after drug withdrawal.

Lung Microbiota Dysbiosis [4]

  • MFXD can ameliorate lung microbiota dysbiosis in allergic rhinitis models.

  • It alters the lung microbiota composition, bringing it closer to that of healthy individuals.

  • The decoction reduces the relative abundance of pathogenic bacteria like Pseudomonas.

  • MFXD increases the relative abundance of beneficial bacteria like Bifidobacterium.

  • It has shown effectiveness in regulating the gut-lung axis and improving overall respiratory health.

Nasal and Lung Barrier Function [4]

  • MFXD can restore nasal mucosal epithelium and lung barrier function in allergic rhinitis models.

  • It increases the expression of tight junction proteins like occludin and ZO-1 in the nasal mucosa and bronchi.

  • The decoction reduces damage to the epithelial barrier caused by allergens and pathogens.

  • MFXD has shown effectiveness in improving overall respiratory health by enhancing barrier function.

  • It can reduce excessive secretion of inflammatory factors like histamine and IgE in allergic rhinitis models.
