Xiao Chai Hu Tang (XCHT), a compound formula originally recorded in an ancient Chinese medical book Shanghanlun, has been used to treat chronic liver diseases for a long period of time in China. Although extensive studies have been demonstrated the efficacy of this formula to treat chronic hepatitis, hepatic fibrosis, and hepatocarcinoma, how it works(More)
The major obstacle for the development of targeted therapies is the lack of pharmacodynamic (PD) biomarkers to provide an early readout of biological activities. As the modulation of metabolites may reflect the biological changes occurring in the targets, metabolomics is promising to be an efficient way to explore PD biomarkers. In the present study, a(More)
With the hope to provide an effective approach for personalized diagnosis and treatment clinically, traditional chinese medicine (TCM) is being paid increasing attention as a complementary and alternative medicine.
