Effects of Saiko-ka-ryukotsu-borei-to, a Japanese Kampo medicine, on tachycardia and central nervous system stimulation induced by theophylline in rats and mice. (1/801)

Effects of Saiko-ka-ryukotsu-borei-to (SRBT) on theophylline-induced tachycardia in anesthetized rats and theophylline-induced locomotion and convulsions in mice were examined. An intraduodenal administration of SRBT (1 g/kg) prevented theophylline (5 mg/kg, i.v.)-induced tachycardia in rats. SRBT also attenuated an increase in arterial blood pressure with a slow reduction in heart rate of rats treated with theophylline, with no influence on the plasma level of theophylline. However, SRBT did not change the beating rate of right atrium isolated from rats in the absence or presence of theophylline or isoproterenol. The locomotor activity of theophylline in mice was reduced by the treatment with SRBT. Furthermore, the latency of convulsions in mice induced by administration of theophylline at a higher dose (240 mg/kg, i.p.) was prolonged by treatment with SRBT (1 g/kg, p.o.) and seven out of fifteen mice were saved from death due to convulsions. These results suggest that theophylline-induced tachycardia and central nervous stimulation are suppressed by SRBT and that SRBT may reduce the undesirable actions of theophylline on the cardiovascular and central nervous systems.  (+info)

The effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy. (2/801)

We examined the effect of acupuncture on epileptic seizures in humans in a controlled clinical setting. Treatment was administered by two Chinese professors of acupuncture. Effect was measured by change in seizure frequency. Twenty-nine patients with chronic intractable epilepsy completed the study. They were randomized in two groups; 15 were given classical acupuncture and 14 were given sham acupuncture. There was a reduction in seizure frequency in both groups, which did not reach a level of statistical significance. There was also an increase in the number of seizure-free weeks in both groups, which reached a level of significance in the sham group. Thus, we have not been able to prove a beneficial effect of acupuncture in chronic intractable epilepsy.  (+info)

A consolidatory approach is made to synergize the usefulness of the two disciplines based on the principles of the two schools. RESULTS: A synergized basic diagnostic framework is developed. The disease (the disease diagnosis, [symbol: see text]), the state of the inner core (the core diagnosis, [symbol: see text]) should be defined. The term "systemic clues" is used to describe the symptom complex and conglomerate evidence describing the transient or sustained reaction of the inner core to environment. This is an analytical summary of its pathophysiological changes in reaction to the environmental insults. CONCLUSIONS: The application and use of the framework are discussed and propositions are made. The synergized diagnostic platform represents a starting effort to form a unified basis to exchange clinical diagnosis between W Med and C Med. Such framework may facilitate looking for new treatment modalities and results can be compared across different centres.  (+info)

An exploration of oral health beliefs and attitudes of Chinese in West Yorkshire: a qualitative investigation. (4/801)

This qualitative study explores oral health beliefs and attitudes among Chinese resident in West Yorkshire using six focus groups differentiated by age and gender. Focus group discussions took place in community settings led by trained Chinese facilitators. All groups believed that they were susceptible to dental disease, and that bleeding gums and total tooth loss were 'normal'; apart from the elderly, tooth loss was seen as undesirable. The elderly and adult groups believed in traditional remedies and claimed that preventive oral health measures were ineffective. These groups lacked faith in dentists, and for them cost, language difficulties and lack of awareness were the main reported barriers to accessing dental services. Traditional Chinese oral health beliefs remain influential for the elderly and adult UK Chinese. In contrast, teenagers thought that toothbrushing and sugar restriction would help to prevent dental diseases. The appropriateness of the focus group and interview methods for exploring oral health beliefs for the Chinese are discussed, as are implications of the reported intergenerational differences for oral health promotion strategy in the UK.  (+info)

Positive and negative interference of the Chinese medicine Chan Su in serum digoxin measurement. Elimination of interference by using a monoclonal chemiluminescent digoxin assay or monitoring free digoxin concentration. (5/801)

An over-the-counter Chinese medicine, Chan Su, is used as a cardiotonic agent. We demonstrated significant digoxin-like immunoreactivity in various organic and aqueous extracts of Chan Su. For example, when a 20-microL aliquot of an aqueous extract of Chan Su powder (1 mg/mL) was added to a 2-mL aliquot of a drug-free serum, the observed digoxin-like immunoreactivity was 2.76 ng/mL (3.53 nmol/L) digoxin equivalent using the fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA). The magnitude of interference was much lower (0.94 ng/mL [1.20 nmol/L]) with the microparticle enzyme immunoassay (MEIA), and no interference was observed with the chemiluminescent assay (CLIA). We also observed a significant positive interference of the extract with the serum digoxin measurement using FPIA. In contrast, we observed a negative interference (falsely lowered digoxin concentration) of the extract in the serum digoxin measurement with the MEIA. The extract had no effect on the serum digoxin measurement with the CLIA. By taking advantage of the high protein binding of Chan Su and only 25% protein binding of digoxin, we further demonstrated that positive interference of Chan Su in the FPIA and negative interference of Chan Su in the MEIA of digoxin could be eliminated by monitoring the free digoxin concentration.  (+info)

Effect of ligustrum fruit extract on reproduction in experimental diabetic rats. (6/801)

AIM: To study the effect of ligustrum fruit on spermatogenesis and blood gonadal hormones in diabetic rats. METHODS: Experimental diabetes was induced in male Wistar rats with streptozotocin. Ligustrum fruit extract was given by gastric gavage at a dose of crude drug 30 g x kg(-1) x d(-1) for 110 days. The serum gonadadotropic hormones and testosterone were determined on d 60 and testicular histology examined on d 110. RESULTS: In the control diabetic rats, the seminiferous tubules were dilated and the spermatogenic cells irregularly arranged. Spermatogenesis was arrested with the number of spermatids highly reduced and spermatozoa not observed. In the treated rats, all types of spermatogenic cells were practically normal. The serum luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and testosterone levels were higher in the treated than in the control rats, but the difference was insignificant. CONCLUSION: In experimental diabetic rats, ligustrum fruit extract protects the damaging effect of experimental diabetes on spermatogenesis.  (+info)

Natural therapies for ocular disorders, part two: cataracts and glaucoma. (7/801)

Pathophysiological mechanisms of cataract formation include deficient glutathione levels contributing to a faulty antioxidant defense system within the lens of the eye. Nutrients to increase glutathione levels and activity include lipoic acid, vitamins E and C, and selenium. Cataract patients also tend to be deficient in vitamin A and the carotenes, lutein and zeaxanthin. The B vitamin riboflavin appears to play an essential role as a precursor to flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), a co-factor for glutathione reductase activity. Other nutrients and botanicals, which may benefit cataract patients or help prevent cataracts, include pantethine, folic acid, melatonin, and bilberry. Diabetic cataracts are caused by an elevation of polyols within the lens of the eye catalyzed by the enzyme aldose reductase. Flavonoids, particularly quercetin and its derivatives, are potent inhibitors of aldose reductase. Glaucoma is characterized by increased intraocular pressure (IOP) in some but not all cases. Some patients with glaucoma have normal IOP but poor circulation, resulting in damage to the optic nerve. Faulty glycosaminoglycan (GAG) synthesis or breakdown in the trabecular meshwork associated with aqueous outflow has also been implicated. Similar to patients with cataracts, those with glaucoma typically have compromised antioxidant defense systems as well. Nutrients that can impact GAGs such as vitamin C and glucosamine sulfate may hold promise for glaucoma treatment. Vitamin C in high doses has been found to lower IOP via its osmotic effect. Other nutrients holding some potential benefit for glaucoma include lipoic acid, vitamin B12, magnesium, and melatonin. Botanicals may offer some therapeutic potential. Ginkgo biloba increases circulation to the optic nerve; forskolin (an extract from Coleus forskohlii) has been used successfully as a topical agent to lower IOP; and intramuscular injections of Salvia miltiorrhiza have shown benefit in improving visual acuity and peripheral vision in people with glaucoma.  (+info)

Determination of 14 chemical constituents in the traditional Chinese medicinal preparation Huangqin-Tang by high performance liquid chromatography. (8/801)

The high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method for the identification and determination of baicalin (BG), wogonoside (WG), oroxylin-A-glucoside (OG), baicalein (B), wogonin (W), orxylin-A (O), paeoniflorin (PF), glycyrrhizic acid (GL), glycyrrhetinic acid (GA), liquiritin (LG), isoliquirition (ILG), liquiritigenin (L), isoliquiritigenin (IL) and ononin (ON) in Huangqin-Tang [Chinese characters: see text] was established. The samples were separated with a Wakosil C18 column (4.6 x 150 mm) by linear gradient elution using A (MeOH-HAC 100:1, v/v)-B (Water-HAC 100:1, v/v) (0 min, 30:70; 15 min, 40:60; 30 min, 60:40; 45 min, 80:20; 60 min, 100:0) as the mobile phase at a flow-rate of 1.0 ml/min. The detection was by diode-array UV/Vis detector (DAD), and the wavelength was set at the range of 200-400 nm. Satisfactory results were obtained within 60 min for the simultaneous determination of the 14 constituents. The repeatability (RSD) of the method was generally less than 2% (n=5, interday and intraday). The recovery of BG was 96.9+/-1.71, WG was 98.9+/-2.99, PF was 99.7+/-0.52, LG was 95.3+/-2.67, GL was 96.7+/-3.44, and GA was 94.8+/-4.16, respectively.  (+info)

Background Traditional Chinese medicine encompasses a well established alternate system of medicine based on a broad range of herbal formulations and is practiced extensively in the region for the treatment of a wide variety of diseases. In recent years, several reports describe in depth studies of the molecular ingredients of Traditional Chinese Medicines on the biological activities including anti-bacterial activities. The availability of a well-curated dataset of molecular ingredients of Traditional Chinese Medicines and accurate in-silico cheminformatics models for data mining for antitubercular agents and computational filters to prioritize molecules has prompted us to search for potential hits from these datasets.Results We used a consensus approach to predict molecules with potential antitubercular activities from a large dataset of molecular ingredients of Traditional Chinese Medicines available in the public domain. We further prioritized 160 molecules based on five computational filters

Hypertension is one of the major risk factors of cardiovascular diseases. It contributes to one half of the coronary heart disease and approximately two thirds of the cerebrovascular disease burdens [1]. There are over 972 million hypertension patients in the world [2].Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been playing an important role on treating hypertension, and it lies primarily in "treatment based on syndrome differentiation of the patients". Traditionally, syndrome differentiation is performed by TCM practitioner should have solid theoretical foundation and plentiful experiences.. In the field of data mining, syndrome differentiation can be regarded as a patient classification problem which can be solved with specific data mining and machine learning techniques. It has become a fast developing field with the accumulating of clinical data [3-6].. In traditional classification problems, one case would be only classified to one category (i.e. label) which is called single label ...

Contact: Nicole Napoli, [email protected], 202-375-6523. WASHINGTON (Jun 12, 2017) -. Traditional Chinese medicine might be effective as a complement or alternative to traditional Western medicine for primary and secondary prevention of heart disease, according to a state of the art review paper published today in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. Heart disease is the No. 1 cause of death worldwide, and despite advances in Western medicine for treating and preventing heart disease, unmet needs remain. As a result, traditional Chinese medicine is being increasingly looked at as a supplement to Western medicine, but to date randomized controlled trials are overall of poor quality and flawed. Western scientists often reject Chinese medicine for specific reasons: the formula consists of dozens of ingredients with many chemical molecules, making it hard to clarify the therapeutic mechanism; the medications available in China do not undergo the same rigorous approval process as Western ...

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an ancient holistic system of healing. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a range of traditional medical practices originating in China that developed over several thousand years.
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), with its multi-target effects, is gaining more and more attention all over the world due to its specific theory and long historical clinical practice. But the absence of an objective and accurate inspection system is frequently cited as one of the major hurdles for its modernization and globalization. Benefiting from modern molecular biology and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques, DNA markers have become one of the most reliable methods for identification and authentication of Chinese medicinal materials. This paper reviewed the recent progress of DNA markers, including PCR-based markers, hybridization-based markers, sequenced-based markers, and DNA microarray in the authentication of TCM. Key words: DNA marker, Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), polymerase chain peaction (PCR).

Background Since 1950, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) cupping therapy has been applied as a formal modality in hospitals throughout China and elsewhere in the world. Based on a previous systematic literature review of clinical studies on cupping therapy, this study presents a thorough review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to evaluate the therapeutic effect of cupping therapy. Method Six databases were searched for articles published through 2010. RCTs on cupping therapy for various diseases were included. Studies on cupping therapy combined with other TCM treatments versus non-TCM therapies were excluded. Results 135 RCTs published from 1992 through 2010 were identified. The studies were generally of low methodological quality. Diseases for which cupping therapy was commonly applied were herpes zoster, facial paralysis (Bell palsy), cough and dyspnea, acne, lumbar disc herniation, and cervical spondylosis.

Reasons for action taken. The Inquiry Committee determined that this was an appropriate case to seek a consent order because:. ...
The article also stresses the potential that traditional Chinese medicines could have in drug discovery efforts, in particular in finding multicomponent therapeutics that combine two or more active ingredients into one single dose to hit several targets at once. The herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine can easily have over 50 chemical components. Although each single component might not be active, in combination they might be able to potentiate the effects of other chemical components, or they might work in combination to produce unexpected results. Additionally, traditional Chinese medicines are often prescribed in combinations. Would it be possible to combine the well established formulae of traditional Chinese medicines with Western medicine to produce combinations of drugs with lower risks of adverse drug-drug interactions? Now that we know traditional Chinese medicine has somewhat of a scientific basis, hopefully more work will be completed in this area. Acupuncture has already gained ...
The practice of acupuncture and moxibustion is based on the theory of meridians. According to this theory, qi (vital energy) and blood circulate in the body through a system of channels called meridians, connecting internal organs with external organs or tissues. By stimulating certain points of the body surface reached by meridians through needling or moxibustion, the flow of qi and blood can be regulated and diseases are thus treated. These stimulation points are called acupuncture points, or acupoints.. Acupoints reside along more than a dozen of major meridians. There are 12 pairs of regular meridians that are systematically distributed over both sides of the body, and two major extra meridians running along the midlines of the abdomen and back. Along these meridians more than three hundred acupoints are identified, each having its own therapeutic action. For example, the point Hegu (LI 4), located between the first and second metacarpal bones, can reduce pain in the head and mouth. The ...
Abstract: The global demand for traditional Chinese medicine ("TCM") has exploded in the last thirty years. Demand for TCM products increased both domestically in the Peoples Republic of China ("PRC") and internationally. However, the stigma of "witch doctoring" associated with TCM remains. Several developed nations have established national and local regulation of TCM practitioners to protect their citizens from dangerous treatments. After almost forty years of virtually unregulated endorsement of TCM, China recently began its own standardization of TCM products and practice. The question must be asked, what inspired such a dramatic and rapid change in Chinese policy? The geyser of Chinese TCM regulation can largely be attributed to a growing international demand for alternative medical treatments. China realizes the potential profit of TCM trade, and recognizes comprehensive knowledge of its own medicine creates an obvious advantage over other sources of TCM. However, lack of standardization ...

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine work to enhance both men and womens fertility by restoring health and balance to the body, mind and spirit. There have been a multitude of research studies in the past decade showing how acupuncture and Chinese medicine increase the success rate of conventional infertility treatments.

Despite the severity of the Chinese winter, bronchitis does not have its own name in China, where it would merely be called coughing. The reason why bronchitis is known elsewhere in the world as the English Disease is that the British seem to suffer from it more than other nations. Bronchitis can certainly be treated with Chinese Medicine, usually with success. Different treatments will be applied according to whether the bronchitis is acute of chronic.. In Chinese Medicine, if acute, bronchitis is normally due to external reasons such as wind, cold or heat invasion. Chronic bronchitis, which is what most people suffer from in Britain, is attributed to internal problems: deficiency of the spleen or lungs, or internal phlegm.. Where Western medicine, waits for the attack to occur and then treats it, the aim of a Chinese Medicine practitioner is to prevent the onset of an attack. Sufferers who dread winter because it will inevitably herald the onset of the disease should begin treatment in late ...
As the cost of drug development is always many times more than that of drug discovery, predictive methods aiding in the screening of bioavailable drug candidates are of profound significance. In this paper, a novel method for screening bioactive compounds from traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) was developed by using living cell extract and gas chromatography (GC)-mass spectrometer (MS). The method was validated by using elemene emulsion injection (EEI), a typical TCM with known active compound, to interact with murine ascites hepatocarcinoma cell strain with high metastatic potential (HCa-F). Finally, the method was applied to screen the bioactive compounds from multi-component zedoary turmeric oil and glucose injection (ZTOGI). After HCa-F cells was incubated in ZTOGI, ethyl acetate (EtOAc) was used to extract the compounds in the cells for GC-MS analysis. Fourteen compounds were detected in the desorption eluate of HCa-F cell extract of ZTOGI, and further identified by MS. Curzerene and ...

Menopause and its accompanying discomforts include hot flashes, insomnia, and mood swings. A natural, but dreaded condition for American women, menopause does not seem to have nearly the same effect on women in China. Its an interesting fact that 75% of American women experience noticeable menopausal discomfort, while only 10% of Asian women experience the same. Its worth considering that some of the factors involved in this difference are dietary and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) related, which are both comprised of natural elements, unlike the most common Western treatment for menopause: hormone replacement therapy.. The idea that food can be used medicinally is an inherent Chinese cultural belief, as well as a fundamental principle of TCM. The affect that diet has on ones health is now commonly accepted. The three leading causes of death in the United States -- heart attack, cancer, and stroke, are closely related to a poor diet. Research has increased the study of the relation ...

Couples counselor Laurie Steelsmith notes that a new movie starring Meryl Streep covers a problem she often encounters in her practice: a lackluster sex life. Hope Springs is a movie in which Meryl Streep plays the role of an intimacy, and sex-starved 60-year-old wife. Streep plays Kay, whose three-decades-old marriage to Arnold, played by Tommy Lee Jones, has gone the way of separate bedrooms. They havent had sex in five years and not even Kays donning an alluring negligee can sway her hubby from his sole-occupancy mentality. The couples counselor they visit gets them to talk about their feelings and gives them "intimacy" homework assignments to reignite a spark to their seemingly long lost sexual flame.. Dr. Steelsmith notes that trust, communication, and getting out of comfort zones are important factors for restoring libido. However, she feels that traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an approach that has addressed these issues for centuries. She explains that the 2,000-year-old system ...

Various authors agree that acupuncture is a true and efficient therapeutic method. A medicine on its own, acupuncture is a discipline that is interested in affections of the human body. ...
Multi-origin Chinese herbal medicines, with herbs originating from more than one species of plants, is a common phenomenon but an important issue in Traditional Chinese Medicines (TCMs). In the present study, a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS)-based fatty acid profiling approach to rapidly discriminate multi-origin Chinese medicines in terms of species and medicinal parts was proposed and validated using tuberous roots (Curcumae Radix) and rhizomes (Curcumae Rhizoma and Curcumae Longae Rhizoma) derived from four Curcuma species (e.g., C. wenyujin, C. kwangsiensis, C. phaeocaulis and C. longa) as models. Both type and content of fatty acids varied among different species of either tuberous roots or rhizomes, indicating each species has its own fatty acid pattern. Orthogonal partial least squares discriminant analysis (OPLS-DA) and hierarchical clustering analysis (HCA) based on dataset of global fatty acid profiling showed that either tuberous roots or rhizomes samples could be clearly
Scutellaria baicalensis (or Baikal skullcap, as opposed to Scutellaria lateriflora, a skullcap native to North America) is a species of flowering plant in the Lamiaceae family. The plant is cultivated in Siberia, Mongolia, the Russian Far East, China and Korea. It is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in traditional Chinese medicine, where it has the name huáng cen (Chinese: 黄芩). As a Chinese traditional medicine, huang qin usually refers to the dried root of S. baicalensis Georgi, S. viscidula Bge., S. amoena C.H. Wright, and S. ikoninkovii Ju. Several chemical compounds have been isolated from the root; baicalein, baicalin, wogonin, norwogonin, oroxylin A and β-sitosterol are the major ones. It is important to use the Latin name, as the term skullcap is used for over 200 varieties, and various ailments, each with varying degrees of effectiveness. Sometimes, Scutellaria lateriflora (North American skullcap) is mistaken for S. baicalensis. This confusion can result in the intake of the ...

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a medical system that dates back nearly 4,000 years. Auricular acupuncture was first mentioned around 500 B.C. in the Yellow Emperors Classic of Internal Medicine, which is the equivalent of the Bible for TCM practitioners. However, the method in which auricular acupuncture is practiced today is actually based upon discoveries that occurred in France in the 1950s. Modern auricular acupuncture is based upon the work done by Dr. Paul Nogier of France.. Auricular acupuncture is the stimulation of the external ear for the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions. These health conditions may be taking place anywhere throughout the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points can be done manually, with an acupuncture needle, a laser, magnets or ear seeds. Regardless of the means of stimulation, auricular acupuncture can be a very powerful addition to regular acupuncture treatments..
