Clinical observation in 86 cases of acne vulgaris treated with Compound Oldenlandis Mixture.Liu W, Shen D, Song P, Xu X.
Dermatology Department, Guang'anmen Hospital, China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Beijing 100053.

86 cases of acne vulgaris were treated with Fu Fang She She Cao He Ji ([symbol: see text] Compound Oldenlandis Mixture), with the other 34 cases treated with Dang Gui Ku Shen Wan ([symbol: see text] Pills Prepared from Chinese Angelica and Flavescent Sophora Root) as the controls, to observe the therapeutic effect of the former. The results showed that the cure plus markedly effective rate was 73.26% in the treatment group, and 47.06% in the control group, with a significant difference in the cure plus markedly effective rate between the two groups (P < 0.01), and also in the total effective rate between the two groups significant (P < 0.05). It may be concluded that the Compound Oldenlandis Mixture is a better agent for the illness.




what are your thoughts??

Quite a biased source, but worth a try for the desperate.

"There has been sharp disagreement on this point, due to the fact that medical literature includes a great deal of testimony that the placebo effect routinely works 30 percent of the time, with Dr. Herbert Benson of Harvard stating that it may work up to 90 percent of the time."

BP is probably the most widely used active ingredient in the anti-acne skin care industry. I doubt it it has build its reputation on placebo studies.
