Item description for Chinese Materia Medica: Chemistry, Pharmacology and Applications by You-Ping Zhu...
Chinese Materia Medica can be used both as a reference and a textbook for specialized university and on-the-job training courses. It is essential reading for all students and practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine and will also be of interest to those involved in education and research in natural products, pharmaceutical sciences, and medicine. Although there are already a few English-language publications about the theory and applications of Chinese materia medica, little has been written about their chemical and pharmacological nature in relation to traditional classification and properties. This volume fills a long-existing gap in the English medical and pharmaceutical literature by providing both traditional and modern scientific information. It also features the theories and concepts from the Western medical perspectives and the sources, production, and quality control of Chinese materia medica.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chinese Materia Medica: Chemistry, Pharmacology and Applications?
from the Medical Herbalism journal Sep 3, 2000
The most popular materia medicas on Chinese herbs, by Bensky and by Hsu, for the most part leave out details of scientific research. This book fills that gap in the current English language literature on Chinese herbs. Zhu offers extensive details on in vitro research, and, when available, human clinical trials for all the major herbs in use in China today, as well as a brief overview of traditional use.
