          Meng Chong (Tabanus bivittatus)

Meng Chong (Tabanus bivittatus) is also known as Gadfly. The bitter, slightly cold and toxic herb has been used in TCM totreat amenorrhea, tumors of the uterus, ovaries, endometriosis, mammary glands hyperplasia , chronic inflammation of the pelvic area, physical injuries, etc., as it promotes circulation of Blood, breaks up the Blood, eliminates Blood stasis, etc., by enhancing the function of liver channel.

Health Benefits
1. Anticoagulant protein
Tabanus anticoagulant protein (TAP) was isolated from the whole body of the tabanus, Tabanus bivittatus, using three purification steps (ammonium sulfate fractionation, gel filtration on Bio-Gel P-60, and ion exchange chromatography on DEAE Sephadex gel), showed that TAP has significant anticoagulant activity on blood coagulation system(1).

2. Infantile pneumonia
In the clarification of the statement of “Infantile pneumonia has been treated successfully with Huayu decoction (HYD) in our department for more than ten years” by the principles of Huoxue Huayu of TCM, the composition of Huayu decoction is as follows: Angelica sinensis, Paeonia lactiflora, Ligusticum wallichii, Spathollobus suberectus, Hirudo nipponica, Tabanus bivittatus, Paeonia suffroticosa, Astragalus membranaceus. Study showed that the results showed that the activity of erythrocyte superoxide dismutases (ESOD) reduced in the acute stage and returned to normal in convalescence. There was significant statistical difference in activity of ESOD between the patient’s group. In experimental studies, the producing of free radicals was induced by inhaling ozone in mice. It was found that HYD had the effect of scavenging free radicals in these animal models. The action of anti-oxidate of HYD was also detected in vitro. The mechanism of HYD in treating infantile pneumonia might be elucidated in some respects by these clinical and experimental studies(2).

3. Inhibiting proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells
In the study to evaluate the Dahuang Zhechong pill (DHZCP), a famous and classical Chinese herbal prescription, consists of twelve traditional Chinese drugs: Eupolyphaga sinensis Walker., Rheum officinale Baill., Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi., Glycyrrhiza uralensis Fisch., Prunus persica Batsch., Prunus armeniaca L., Paeonia lactiflora Pall., Rehmannia glutinosa Libosch., Toxicodendron vernicifluum F.A. Barkl., Tabanus bivittatus Mats., Hirudo nipponica Whitman. and Holotrichia diomphalia Bates., and is clinically used to treat hepatic diseases, gynecopathy and atherosclerosis in China, showed that The serum of DHZCP-treated rats not only inhibited endothelin-1 (ET-1) stimulated cell proliferation and PDGF expression in VSMCs, but also promoted apoptosis of the proliferated VSMCs. Meanwhile, the serum of rats containing DHZCP interfered with the cycle of PDGF-stimulated VSMCs, increasing proportion of the cells in G(0)/G(1) phases and decreasing proportion of the cells in S and G(2)/M phases(3).
