Additional Information

Natural Products are the most important fields of drug discovery and the basis of many exciting new developments in production of healthcare products, vitamins, agrochemicals, etc. Traditional medicine is a great treasure accumulated by human combating with diseases in long civilization history. A lot of new drug discoveries come from the results of traditional medicine investigation. Traditional medicine, such as traditional Chinese medicine, still has popular application in clinic to anti-SARS, anti-influenza H1N1 and other major diseases. On the other hand, antibiotics is the greatest discovery in the human medical history. But along with multi-drug resistance increasingly, a lot antibiotics lost their therapeutic power. In contrast with that, many traditional Chinese herb drugs have been used over thousands years, none of them lost their therapeutic power because of drug resistance. This phenomena encourages us to uncover the mechanism. Possibly, it gives us the new hopes in anti-major diseases from the traditional medicine. Therefore, we organized International Conference of Natural Products and Traditional Medicine, invited multidisciplinary experts to discuss and exchange innovative information, in order to find new strategies and methods in anti-major diseases, such as cancers, infectious diseases etc. with great successes.
