Brief Summary:
This study will take disease-free survival time and recurrence and metastasis rate as the main evaluation indexes, to evaluate the clinical efficacy of strengthening the spleen and reducing phlegm method in patients with stage II high-risk and stage III colorectal cancer

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Colorectal Cancer Drug: Jianpi Huatan dispensing granule Phase 3

Detailed Description:

The study enrolled 350 patients with stage II high-risk and stage III colorectal cancer who underwent adjuvant chemotherapy (based on a 5-fluorouracil(5-FU) regimen for at least 3 months) and patients who received chemotherapy for less than 3 months. The study will use a large sample, multicenter, randomized, double-blind study. The experimental group was given oral Jianpi Huatan dispensing granule, once a day in the morning and evening, 1 course per 1 month, a total of 3 courses; the control group of oral Chinese medicine formula low dose control granules (including the test group dose 1 /10), 1 time each morning and evening, 1 course per month, for a total of 3 courses.

The patients were followed up once a month during the treatment period and once every 3-6 months after the end of treatment until the patient relapsed, died or the study was over.Some patients in the study will be tested for circulating tumor cells.

Main outcome measures is Disease-free survival time(DFS)and Metastasis recurrence rate in 1 year;Secondary outcome measures:Quality of life score: applied quality of life scale.Metastasis recurrence rate in 2、3years.


Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 350 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Intervention Model Description: This study was double-blind. According to the randomized results, the experimental group was given orally therapeutic granules, while the control group was given orally low-dose granules.
Masking: Double (Participant, Care Provider)
Masking Description: This study was double-blind. According to the randomized results, the experimental group was given orally therapeutic granules, while the control group was given orally low-dose granules. Random sequence was generated by professional statisticians of group leader unit by statistical software. 350 subjects were divided into experimental group and control group according to the ratio of 1:1, 175 cases in each group. Random seeds and random sequences are stored as confidential data in opaque envelopes, and emergency envelopes are handed over to a third party to ensure that patients, researchers and outcome evaluators are unaware of the patient group before blindness is uncovered. After successful screening and signing the informed consent form, the patient can open a random envelope in turn and record the subject's name, hospital number and admission time on the envelope.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: test group
The test group will oral Jianpi Huatan dispensing granule , once a day in the morning and evening, once a month for a course of treatment, a total of three courses.
Drug: Jianpi Huatan dispensing granule
once a day in the morning and evening, every month for a course of treatment, a total of three courses

Placebo Comparator: control group
The control group will oral drug:low-dose control granules (containing 1/10 of the dose of the experimental group) , once a day in the morning and evening, once a month for a course of treatment, a total of three courses
Drug: Jianpi Huatan dispensing granule
once a day in the morning and evening, every month for a course of treatment, a total of three courses




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Disease-free survival time [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    from the date of radical resection of colorectal cancer to the time of recurrence or metastasis.

  2. Metastasis recurrence rate in 1 year [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
    The ratio of metastasis and recurrence to the patients was observed.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM )symptom grading table [ Time Frame: 3 months ]

    Effective: after treatment, TCM symptom score decreased by more than 50% compared with that before treatment.

    Effective: decrease < 50% and equal to 30%; Invalid: decrease < 30%. Note: the formula is: (before treatment - integral after treatment) / before treatment by 100%


  2. Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Colorectal (FACT-C) scale [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    The FACT-C scale was divided into five grades: none (0), one point (1), some (2), equivalent (3) and very (4). The positive items (i.e. the higher the grade, the better the quality of life.)

  3. Edmonton Symptom Assessment Scale( ESAS ) [ Time Frame: 3months ]
    The scale used digital scoring method, each symptom scoring range of 0-10 points, 0 points for asymptomatic, 10 points for the most serious degree imaginable, patients choose a number to express their subjective feelings, the larger the number indicates the more serious the symptoms. 1~10 points were divided into 3 degrees, mild, moderate and severe. 1~3 were mild, 4~6 were moderate, and 7~10 were severe

  4. Metastasis recurrence rate in 2 years [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    The ratio of metastasis and recurrence to the patients was observed.

  5. Metastasis recurrence rate in 3 years [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
    The ratio of metastasis and recurrence to the patients was observed.
