Yi-Fu-Qing granule is a traditional Chinese medicine for the treatment of acute respiratory tract infections. The present study sought to investigate the anti-virus effects of Yi-Fu-Qing granule on acute respiratory infections with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human adenoviruses type 3 (Ad3). The cytotoxicity of Yi-Fu-Qing granule was evaluated by the neutral red assay on HeLa cells. The antiviral effect of Yi-Fu-Qing granule was tested by observing the cytopathogenic effect (CPE) with…

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a potential candidate for anti-HBV drugs and needs to apply advanced and interdisciplinary methodology and technology and perform further rigorously designed experimental and clinical investigations.
A review study on the effect of Iranian herbal medicines against in vitro replication of herpes simplex virus
The review of data showed that some of the herbal extracts including Hyssopus officinalis methanolic extract, Melissa Officinalis aqueous extract, Quercus persica L. hydroalcoholic extract and Securigeras ecuridaca methanolics extract with selective index (SI) of 234, 877, >778 and 250, respectively were highly effective against HSV in vitro.

The Shi-cha capsule is efficacious and safe for the treatment of patients with wind-cold type common cold and the symptom durations and scores showed slight superiority of group B over group A, although these differences were not statistically significant.
Adjuvant therapy efficacy of Chinese drugs pharmaceutics for COPD patients with respiratory failure: a meta-analysis
Clinical effects of Western medicine combined with Tanreqing used to treat combined COPD/respiratory failure were better than those afforded by Western medicine; however, publication bias was evident, and further trials with larger sample sizes are required.
Effects of ginger and its constituents on airway smooth muscle relaxation and calcium regulation.
Novel data show that ginger and its isolated active components, [6]-gingerol, [8]-gingersol, and [ 6]-shogaol, relax ASM, and[8]-geserol attenuates airway hyperresponsiveness, in part by altering [Ca(2+)](i) regulation.
Active components of ginger potentiate β-agonist-induced relaxation of airway smooth muscle by modulating cytoskeletal regulatory proteins.
Together with β-agonists, 6-gingerol, 8-gingERol, or 6-shogaol may augment existing asthma therapy, resulting in relief of symptoms through complementary intracellular pathways.
Quercetin acutely relaxes airway smooth muscle and potentiates β-agonist-induced relaxation via dual phosphodiesterase inhibition of PLCβ and PDE4.
Novel data show that the natural PDE4-selective inhibitor quercetin may provide therapeutic relief of asthma symptoms and decrease reliance on short-acting β-agonists.

“Yifuqing Granule” has good therapeutic effects on childhood fever due to upper respiratory tract infection and there was no difference in the total effective rates.
Effect of the extracts from Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch on the growth characteristics of human cell lines: Anti-tumor and immune activation activities
It was found that both of the apoptosis and differentiation were more accelerated in supplementing the crude extract and fraction F1 than in adding the standards, which tells that there must be another unknown component in crude and/or fractions F1 as a possible candidate of immune modulators.
