Low, moderate or high dose of HQQD alone could significant reduce the tumor weight as compared with the control mice which suggested an effectiveness of HQQD (Fig S1A), though the inhibition rate was lower than CP administration (Fig S1B). Meanwhile, CP suppressed the thymus (Fig S1C) and spleen index (Fig S1D) which were reversed by individual use of HQQD. These results indicated a protective effect of HQQD alone on CP injury. Data displayed as mean of 10 mice in each group. The experiment was independently repeated for 3 times. **p < 0.01 versus model group, ***p < 0.001 versus model group; #p < 0.05 versus CP group, ##p < 0.01 versus CP group, ###p < 0.001 versus CP group.
