The Principal Component Analysis of Element Contents in Chinese Herbs of the Caine Kidney Mixture


Objective: This research compares the nature of 11 kinds of Chinese herbs in the caine kidney mixture, and provides a theoretical way to concentrated prescriptions. Methods: Based on the principal component analysis of element contents in Chinese herbs, the effects of 25 chemical elements in the 11 kinds of Chinese herbs in the caine kidney mixture have been analyzed. Results: The traditional Chinese medicines of rehmannia, astragalus, mulberry, salvia miltiorrhiza, rhubarb in the caine kidney mixture play a major role in the treatment of chronic renal failure. Conclusion: The principal component analysis is very practical in the compatibility of medicines and concentrated prescriptions.
