Bridging the traditional chinese medicine pattern classification and biomedical disease diagnosis with systems biology
Being the unique core of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), pattern classification exerts a direct effect on the efficacy and safety of herbal interventions. In this article, the authors integrated the pattern classification and disease diagnosis with many approaches from systems biology. Integration of pattern classification with biomedical diagnosis by systems biology is not only a new direction of personalized medicine development, but also provides a new drug development model. In the further study, the pattern classifications of major diseases will be the focus of research. © 2012 Chinese Association of the Integration of Traditional and Western Medicine and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
