V.I. Pankiv


The paper considers the problem of treatment of patients with toxic goiter. The application of herbal medicinal drugs, particularly Alba containing 300 mg of Potentilla alba radix extract, is a potential direction. A clinical efficacy was studied in 46 patients with toxic goiter, 26 persons formed a basic group, 20 were involved into a control one. Alba, a capsule twice a day 15 minutes before meals within 3 months, was added into the treatment scheme of basic group patients. After the study had been finished the basic group patients were found to achieve a clinical effect faster. The addition of Alba into the complex treatment of the patients with toxic goiter was associated with improvement of thyroid gland structure, possible enhance of TTH and reduction of АB-rТТH concentration. Alba use promoted reduction of daily dose of thyreostatic medications that decreases risk of therapy-induced complications.
