Gualoupi decoction injected into the abdominal cavity of normal anesthetized rats can significantly prolong the PR, QT, and RR intervals of the electrocardiogram.
In vitro experiments proved that: Gualou decoction and the extracts of Gualou peel and Gualou seed have a killing effect on mouse ascites cancer cells.
