 3.临床研究:以50%红花注射液15ml(含生药75g),加入10%葡萄糖液500ml静脉滴注,每日1次,共治137例脑血栓,总有效率94.7%(山西医药杂志,1983,12(5):297)。以红花注射液15ml加入5%葡萄糖液200ml静脉滴注,每日1次,半月为1疗程,疗程间隔5日,共治疗2个疗程,治疗62例冠心病。结果心绞痛有效率为76.7%,心电图有效率为65%,血粘度也有显著改善(中医药研究,1990,(5):33)。用0.5%红花酊局部外敷,治疗砸伤、扭伤所致的局部充血、肿胀775例。结果痊愈347例,好转399例,无效29例。红花临床上还用于治疗流行性出血热、精神分裂症、胃溃疡、骨质增生、静脉炎、神经性皮炎、突发性耳聋等疾病。
