In researches of the influence of the emitted qi on cancer growth, metastasis and survival time of host, 114 animal cancer models were used in three batches. Tumor models were formed in mice by transplantation of U27 or MO4 cancer cells into subcutaneous tissues of the right armpit, respectively. These mice with cancer cells were divided randomly into the qigong group and control group and all mice of the two groups were fed with same food. From the second day or seventh day after transplantation of cancer cells, the mice of the qigong group were treated for 10 to 30 minutes with the emitted qi every day, but the mice of the control group were not given any treatment. In experiment 1, on the 20th day after transplantation of cancer cells, all mice of the two groups were killed and all tumor volumes were measured individually. In experiment 2, on the 23rd and 33rd day after transplantation of cancer cells, all mice of the two groups were killed and all armpit Iymph nodes and lungs were taken out individually and examined histopathologically. In experiment 3, when the mice of the two groups died, their survival time after transplantation of cancer cells was calculated, respectively.
The following results were found:
l. In experiment l, the average tumor volume of the qigong group (31 mice, 2.25±5.35 cm3) was obviously lower than the control group (32 mice, 6.32±10.02 cm3), p<O.001.
2. In experiment 2, the metastatic rate (l/l6) of Iymph nodes in the qigong group was significantly lower than the control group (6/15), P<O.05.
3. In experiment 3, the average survival time (35.4 d) of mice with cancer in the qigong group (10 mice) was obviously longer than the control group (10 mice, 30. 5d), P<O.002.
These results indicate that the emitted qi can delay cancer growth.reduce metastatic rate and prolong the survival time of mice with cancer.
