Objective: To observe the antifebrile effect of Naoreqing (NRQ) oral liquid on fever in patients after glioma or meningioma operation.

Methods: Patients were divided into 3 groups, the TCM group treated with NRQ, the TCM-WM group treated with NRQ plus western medicine and the WM group treated with western medicine alone. The treatment was applied for 7 successive days. The mean time of fever and fever subsidence, body temperature before and after treatment were recorded and compared.

Results: The antifebrile effect in the TCM and the TCM-WM group was superior to that in the WM group significantly (P < 0.01), and the difference between the TCM group and the TCM-WM group was insignificant.

Conclusion: NRQ can evidently reduce the body temperature of patients after brain tumor operation, its antifebrile effect is irrelevant to the kind of tumor being glioma or meningioma.
