Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether Bawei Shenqi Pill is effective in the treatment of active ankylosing spondylitis (AS).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Ankylosing Spondylitis Drug: Bawei Shenqi Pill Drug: Bawei Shenqi Pill placebo Drug: Meloxicam Phase 2 Phase 3

Detailed Description:

Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory disease, which mainly invades sacroiliac joint, spinal osteoid process, paraspinal soft tissue and peripheral joints, and can be accompanied by extraarticular manifestations, in severe cases, spinal deformity and ankylosis can occur. The overall prevalence rate of ankylosing spondylitis in China is about 0.3%, the peak of which is 20 to 30 years old. although the prevalence rate is not high, the disability rate is high, and the patients with ankylosing spondylitis are mainly young people of childbearing age, which are in a critical period of work and study. If the disease can not be controlled smoothly, it will seriously affect its learning and work efficiency, image appearance and even the ability of daily life.

Bawei Shenqi Pill originates from Zhang Zhongjing's synopsis of the Golden Chamber, is the representative prescription of warming and tonifying kidney yang, and is also suitable for the pathogenesis of ankylosing spondylitis "deficiency of kidney yang". The purpose of this study was to observe the therapeutic effect of Bawei Shenqi Pill on ankylosing spondylitis of kidney-yang deficiency type through a randomized controlled clinical study. To clarify the effect of Bawei Shenqi Pill on disease activity, joint function, TCM syndrome integral and quality of life in patients with ankylosing spondylitis, and to provide basis for the treatment of ankylosing spondylitis with Bawei Shenqi Pill.
