A recent meta-analysis published in “Neural Regeneration Research” combined data from 31 research studies which had previously explored the effects of Chinese herbal Medicine on Vascular Dementia. Vascular Dementia is the second most common form of dementia after Alzheimer’s disease and is associated with problems of circulation of blood to the brain.
A meta-analysis of Chinese herbal medicines for vascular dementia reviewed data concerning 2868 patients, 1605 of whom took Chinese Medicine decoctions and 1263 who took Western medicine or placebo treatment (control group).
It found that patients taking Chinese herbal medicines scored higher on the Mini-Mental State Examination, which is used to screen for cognitive impairment, than those in the control group.
Patients in the treatment group also showed a greater degree of improvement in their condition, with considerably fewer adverse reactions.
Chinese herbal medicine appears to be safer and more effective than control measures in the treatment of vascular dementia, the report concluded.
