There are two species under the monograph of Radix Paeoniae Rubrae ("Chi-shao" in Chinese) in Chinese Pharmacopoeia 2005 edition-Paeonia lactiflora Pallas and Paeonia veitchii Lynch. Due to different species and growing conditions, there are significant chemical differences between the two species, which may result in the improper clinical usage under the same name. Chemical pattern expressed by high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) fingerprint analysis can play an important role in… CONTINUE READING
