Results: In the treatment group, 2 patients were clinically cured, 4 showed markedly effective, 18 "showed effective, and 7 failed, making a total therapeutic rate of 77.4%. In the control group, 0 were clinically cured, 3 showed markedly effective, 9 showed effective, 14 failed, making a total therapeutic rate of 46.2%.
