To investigate the effects of ginsenosides on the microvascular and immune microenvironment of hepatocellular carcinoma rats and analyzes the relationship on the prognosis of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. 60 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma were collected and randomly divided into control and treatment group in our hospital from January 2018 to January 2020 and clinical symptoms improvement and adverse reactions were compared and analyzed. 60 rats were randomly divided into ginsenoside, control and model group. The immune cell infiltration and microvascular density were detected and analyzed. In animal studies, the infiltration of cluster of differentiation 3+, cluster of differentiation 4+, cluster of differentiation 8+ and forkhead box P3+ T lymphocytes increased significantly while the transforming growth factor beta 1 value decreased significantly after treatment with ginsenoside. Clinically, the patients in the treatment group showed significant improvement in their conscious symptoms and higher treatment efficiency while the adverse reactions such as decrease of white blood cell, decrease of hemoglobin, decrease of platelet, nausea and vomiting and low fever than that of in control group. In hepatocellular carcinoma model, ginsenosides induced lymphocyte infiltration and inhibited tumor angiogenesis to exert anti-tumor effects. And ginsenoside has both anti-tumor and quality of life effects and has good efficacy in the treatment of advanced primary hepatocellular carcinoma.
