第五课题组 – 中草药的体内功能基因组学研究

gp-tcm-logo

(English) Promising herbal medicine candidates eventually need to be tested in vivo. In WP5, the pharmacology of CHM in animal models and will be discussed. Furthermore, another potential application of functional genomics in TCM is to use it to interpret the therapeutic values of the herbal medicines objectively. All these will significantly promote the understanding of TCM. Drugs have to be first tested in animal models before moving on to clinical trials.
In animal studies of CHM, the above questions may also apply, but it might be more difficult, since the diagnosis of the “syndrome” in the TCM way may be difficult to establish however we wish to discuss if there are some simple models that will allow us to investigate these …more

第六课题组 – 中草药临床研究以及功能基因组学的应用

(English) In WP6, the pharmacology of CHM in patients will be discussed. In patients, diagnoses using the TCM system and Western Medicine are very different. Is it possible to interpret the individualised TCM diagnosis of “Zhenghou” (“syndromes”) with the same or similar diseases in Western medicine through different patterns of functional genomics in the blood, urine and mucous secretions? If this is the case we will not only find a scientific explanation for TCM diagnosis but also find a potential way to make the TCM diagnosis more …more
