Integrative Medicine effective treatment of tumors
Integrative Medicine, after years of effort, the medical profession in the field of cancer treatment has made no small progress. But so far, researchers have yet to find a cure national cancer an effective manner.
In 2004, the world authority on science and technology magazine “Nature” the article points out, “Cancer is a multi-gene, systemic disease,” alone treatment for localized disease, such as surgery and radiotherapy, is not enough; and only against a “target” of traditional chemotherapy, Integrative Medicine, the effect is very limited. The face of lack of treatment programs available, the medical community has begun a new research direction to explore on the one hand, developed a series of more “accurate” and “targeted therapy” drug; the other hand, again in traditional medicine to find the answers.
Fusion of Chinese and Western systems biology to guide cancer treatment
As a continuation of medical treatment for thousands of years, Chinese medicine there are also many simple dialectical analysis of ideology and system of ideas, accumulated a lot of effective treatments, and handed down many of the classic treatments. However, the lack of related drugs on a molecular level understanding of the mechanism, it is still stuck in the simple philosophy of dialectical level of integration of modern science can not, therefore, has long been a mainstream Western medical community is not acceptable.
But for all to see, in recent years, so a traditional discipline, oncology community is being more and more attention, why not?
Pharmacology and chemotherapy of tumor Professional Committee, Chinese Academy of Sciences Shanghai Xu Bin, a researcher drugs made to explain this, “Cancer is a genetic disease, it can be said, genomics research is to address the cancer diagnosis, treatment, one of the main platform . In 2001, draft genome is completed, the United States will overcome the hope of steering systems biology of tumor medicine. medicine is characterized by a multi-component, multi-target, after a long practice experience has shown that, for the treatment of cancer, Chinese medicine has the exact effect. ” Professor Xu Bin reference to “systems biology” is a fusion of Chinese and Western medicine in the new science – the field of cancer treatment has become the new force.
June of this year, China hosted the first “system of Biomedical Shanghai Forum”, the participants including the World “metabolomics”, founder of the British Empire, Professor Polytechnic University Jie Limi Nicholson, founder of Systems Biology, National Academy of Sciences Professor Hu De, and Chen Zhu, Chinese Academy of Sciences, nearly 10 academicians.
Professor Nicholson said at the meeting, Integrative Medicine under the systems biology point of view, should the human body as a complete system to be studied, which is Chinese medicine’s “holistic view” and “syndrome differentiation” line of thinking coincide. “Metabonomics” as a system of biology an important means of Chinese medicine, Chinese medicine has become the world’s “common language”, is expected to completely uncover the Chinese Medicine “multi-target” of the mystery. Chen Zhu Yuanshi that the advent of Systems Biomedicine, as Chinese and Western medicine, the two converged to create an unprecedented opportunity and platform to integrate traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine, is a very good way to promote the modernization of the Chinese, after we have successfully treated acute promyelocytic leukemia, cancer of the blood system.
A number of drugs can target tumor treatment
In this forum, Professor of Peking University, College of Pharmacy Dean reported results, the use of advanced technologies such as fingerprint consolidate scattered on the two-Ling (Green Valley Pharmaceutical) study found that two-spirit consolidate scattered with a group of anti-tumor substances, including a variety of three terpene (including 8 new material) and polysaccharides active component, to achieve the target of a number of drugs on the treatment of cancer, so the system is a variety of anticancer drugs combination, both systems successful example of biological Oncology, China’s traditional medicine is the field of new applications in cancer.
July 2, 2006, the fifteenth session of the World Conference of Pharmacology held in Beijing, which is now the largest international academic pharmacology, meeting the highest academic level. Participants from 61 countries and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan regions, a total of more than 3,000 people. General Assembly President, Chairman of the Chinese Pharmacological Society, said Professor Lin Zhibin, this conference will become a milestone in Pharmacology to the world. At the meeting, including the fungus, including, on a variety of traditional medicine experts the paper attracted wide attention.
Triterpenes are the main active ingredient
As China’s traditional Chinese medicine, Ganoderma lucidum contains many physiologically active substances, with righting the strengths, enhance the effectiveness of the human immune system, including triterpenoids is the main active ingredient. The Congress, the anti-tumor effect of Ganoderma lucidum to become one of the hot topics in the participating experts. Professor Lin Zhibin, gave a special report to the double-Ling consolidate scattered, for example, the molecular and cellular level introduces the latest progress of Ganoderma against cancer. Experts say that prevention and treatment of cancer, scientists in the use of Ganoderma lucidum has made three important developments: the use of “multi-center, randomized, double-blind double-dummy, parallel to the positive drug control” of clinical research, prevention and treatment of cancer drugs in Ganoderma lucidum research, access to a series of international standards based data to prove a double-Ling consolidate scattered effect; using gene chip technology shows that Ganoderma the active ingredient triterpenoids can adjust the body 100 kinds of genes; the use of fingerprint technology fungus drugs dual-Ling consolidate scattered Jinxing study found that more than 20 triterpenes, of which 8 were new anti-cancer substances.
At the meeting, researchers said Xu Bin, Integrative Medicine, now the West attaches great importance to the research of Chinese medicine, systems biology has become the focus of cancer research, and consolidate scattered double-Ling Oncology Systems Biology is a new way. Experts say that our scientists in the use of Ganoderma against cancer has made three important developments: the use of “multi-center, randomized, double-blind double-dummy, parallel to the positive drug control” of clinical research in cancer prevention research of Ganoderma lucidum area of drugs, access to a series of international standards based data to prove the dual soul consolidate scattered efficacy; using gene chip technology shows that Ganoderma the active ingredient triterpenoids can adjust the body 100 kinds of genes; the use of fingerprint technology fungus drugs dual-Ling consolidate scattered to study found that more than 20 triterpenes, of which 8 were new anti-cancer substances.
