Seminar on Traditional Chinese Medicine Informatics
5 May 2011
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) drugs comprise multiple compounds regulating multiple targets for a given class of medical indications, and are tunable to the symptoms of the individual. This seminar presents case studies on deducing novel TCM anti-influenza and anti-hyperlipedemia prescriptions from structure biology. The studies suggest that, by further investigating TCM theory and mining TCM databases, a better drug discovery paradigm may arise - one that can be beneficial to both TCM and modern medicine.
