Summary

The investigators will conduct a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to investigate the effects and safety of the combination seed extracts of Cassia obtusifolia Linne and Foeniculum vulgare Mill in patients with chronic constipation for 4 weeks.

Description

A previous animal study has indicated that the combined seed extracts of Cassia obtusifolia Linne and Foeniculum vulgare Mill have a laxative effect by recovering stool parameters, colonic morphology, and activation of mAchRs and their downstream signaling pathway in constipation. Furthermore, this study provides that the combined seed extracts of Cassia obtusifolia Linne and Foeniculum vulgare Mill could be considered as a therapeutic drug candidate for the prevention or treatment of constipation. Therefore, the investigators a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to investigate the effects and safety of the combination seed extracts of Cassia obtusifolia Linne and Foeniculum vulgare Mill in patients with chronic constipation for 4 weeks. The Investigators examine stool transit time, constipation Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), Bristol stool Form scale type 3 and 4 (frequency per week), VAS for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (VAS-IBS) questionnaire, IBS severity scoring system, BS Quality of Life instrument at baseline, as well as after 2 and 4 weeks of intervention. Interferon-1β and tumor necrosis factor-α concentrations were measured at baseline and 4 weeks. One hundred adults were administered either 1,000 mg of the combined seed extracts of Cassia obtusifolia Linne and Foeniculum vulgare Mill or a placebo each day for 4 weeks.
