KUNMING, March 22 (Xinhua) — From laboratories to farmland, Yang Shaobing has helped people in remote areas of southwest China find a new cash cow by planting traditional Chinese herbal medicines.

Yang, a 37-year-old researcher from the Yunnan Provincial Academy of Agricultural Sciences, arrived in Dulongjiang Township in Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, Yunnan Province, in 2016 to help locals alleviate poverty.

Dulongjiang is home to the Dulong people, an ethnic minority group who have long endured poverty and limited access to the outside world.

In Dulongjiang, Yang guided the villagers to plant Amomum Tsao-ko, Chonglou and other medicinal herbs.

The academy where Yang works has built an herbal medicine cultivation technology demonstration base in Longyuan Village of Dulongjiang County. Many villagers have been trained at the grassroots level.

Jiang Jianhua is one of them. He earns a stable income of more than 100,000 yuan (about 15,700 US dollars) every year by planting herbs with the newly mastered techniques.

In Ainishan Township of Chuxiong Prefecture, half of the farmers grow medicinal herbs. The total area of ​​medicinal herb plantation exceeds 4,300 hectares.

Wang Guolei, one of them, earned 600,000 yuan last year.

“Our Chinese herbal medicines are making sales, but can also be made into medicinal foods, such as herb-cooked chicken and beef, to name a few,” Wang said. “Now there are four medicinal food restaurants in our townships.”

On March 7, Yunnan Province announced that it will establish 100 large-scale selection and cultivation bases of traditional Chinese medicinal materials and 50 selection and cultivation bases of geo-authentic medicinal materials.

Panax notoginseng is an example of Yunnan’s success in planting geo-authentic medicinal herbs. In Wenshan City, the seed yield of these medicinal materials was 720,000 kg in 2020, 90% of the national total.

Zhu Zhaoyun, a scholar from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, is currently leading a project to use panax notoginseng in the treatment of heart disease.

“The development of Chinese medicinal materials is expected to improve its added value and application rate through modern science and technology,” she said.

“To develop the traditional Chinese medicine industry, there must be a large-scale planting of herbal medicines, which will lead to an increase in farmers’ income,” she said.

A team of 10 traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) experts arrived in the Cambodian capital on Wednesday evening to help the Southeast Asian country fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The team was warmly welcomed by State Secretary of the Cambodian Ministry of Health Oeun Boraroth and Wu Guoquan, Economic and Commercial Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, at Phnom Penh International Airport upon their arrival.

Boraroth said the experts will perform medical duties at the Cambodia China Friendship Preah Kossamak Hospital in Phnom Penh.

“TCM experts will play an important role in sharing China’s experience in treating COVID-19 patients with Cambodian doctors,” he told reporters, adding that they will carry out also the clinical diagnosis and treatment of other diseases.

He said more TCM experts will be sent to Cambodia in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Boraroth expressed deep gratitude to China for providing a large number of TCMs to Cambodia, saying they are very effective in treating COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms.

“Traditional Chinese medicines are very helpful. Many patients have recovered after using them,” he said.

The medical team was organized by the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and selected by the Chinese Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences. Two TCM experts arrived in Cambodia before the team to carry out medical assistance work.

Some of them were the frontline doctors during the fight against the COVID-19 epidemic in China.

Wu said the state-level TCM medical team will train Cambodian medical professionals on how to treat COVID-19 patients using TCM.

“You are not only doctors saving lives and treating the injured, but also builders of a China-Cambodia community with a shared future,” he said.

He said that TCMs, namely Lianhua Qingwen capsules and Huashi Baidu granules, have been allowed to be used to treat the symptoms of COVID-19 patients in Cambodia, and they are very popular here and In other countries.

“Facts have proven that traditional Chinese medicines are safe and highly effective,” Wu said.

Xu Fengqin, one of the TCM experts, said she was very happy to have been selected for such a vital mission in Cambodia.

“We hope China’s experience and TCM technology will help Cambodia treat COVID-19 patients more effectively,” she said.

Cambodia has fully resumed socio-economic activities in all sectors and reopened its borders to fully vaccinated travelers without quarantine since mid-November last year after most of its population was vaccinated against COVID- 19.

The country reported 140 new cases and one death on Wednesday, bringing the total number of cases to 134,492, with 3,049 deaths and 130,028 recoveries, the health ministry said.

Special: Battle against the new coronavirus

The government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) will continue to take advantage of the benefits of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in the prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic and consolidate TCM as a part integral to the medical system in Hong Kong, Hong Kong SAR Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Saturday.

Lam visited Hong Kong Baptist University’s Chinese Medicine COVID-19 Telemedicine Center and found an online consultation service for COVID-19 patients launched by the university’s TCM team on last month.

The counseling service has provided a free online counseling and counseling service, as well as TCM’s delivery service, for people in home isolation or quarantine, benefiting more than 10,000 people so far.

“Due to the severity of the fifth wave of the outbreak and the highly transmissible variant of Omicron, hundreds of thousands of people have been infected,” Lam said. “I am happy to see that the treatment and prevention of disease through the use of Chinese medicine has fully played against the epidemic.”

With the support of the HKSAR government, the Hong Kong Hospital Authority has been promoting the anti-epidemic treatment of TCM through various means, including providing TCM rehabilitation service to discharged patients and offering TCM treatment. TCM to hospitalized patients.

She said the HKSAR government will continue to leverage the benefits of TCM in preventing and controlling the COVID-19 epidemic and consolidate TCM as an integral part of Hong Kong’s medical system.

Also on Saturday, Lam told a press conference on the latest epidemic situation that the cross-border supply of fresh food in Hong Kong has generally returned to normal and the price has also fallen sharply.

She said that for a while, many people in Hong Kong either got infected or became close contacts and had to be quarantined, which led to labor shortages in the transportation industry. and affected cross-border and local logistics. However, the situation has continuously improved.

The Hong Kong SAR government will provide information in an open and transparent manner to avoid misunderstandings and confusion among the public, she added.

ABSTRACT

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an acute respiratory infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), and it has become a public health problem worldwide. In addition to respiratory symptoms, some COVID‑19 patients also experience various gastrointestinal symptoms and even consider gastrointestinal symptoms as the first manifestation. Abundant evidence has shown that SARS-CoV-2 infection can disrupt the gut microbiota balance and that gut microbiota disorders can worsen the condition of patients with COVID-19. Therefore, maintaining the balance of the gut microbiota should become a new potential therapeutic target for the treatment of COVID-19. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has significant effects in all stages of COVID-19 prevention and treatment. It can regulate the gut microbiota and is an ideal gut microecological regulator. This review summarizes the benefits and clinical efficacy of TCM in the treatment of COVID-19 and discusses the relationship between TCM and gut microbiota, the relationship between COVID-19 and gut microbiota, the mechanism of microbiota disorders intestinal infections induced by SARS-CoV-2, the relationship between cytokine storms and the gut microbiota, and the role and mechanism of TCM in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 by regulating the gut microbiota to provide new research ideas for TCM in the prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners are mobilizing against a bill proposed by the Ford government which they say would put patients at risk and allow unqualified people to enter the profession.

They are reacting to Bill 88, recently tabled labor legislation that, among other things, would abolish the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario, established in 2013.

“There was no consultation from the government that they were even considering this decision,” said Heather Kenny, president of Traditional Chinese Medicine Ontario, an advocacy group.

“We are doing absolutely everything we can to expose what happened.”

Traditional Chinese Medicine involves techniques like acupuncture, herbal remedies, cupping, proper nutrition, and Chinese massage. According to Kenny, the bill was introduced at a time when these treatments are becoming increasingly popular in Ontario, with nearly 2,800 practitioners each managing a caseload ranging from 100 to 250 people.

If the legislation becomes law, it will revoke all registration and licensing certificates and remove all active practitioner surveys. Critics claim that patients and practitioners would no longer have a primary regulator to submit their complaints to.

The government says it is making the move because the current system excludes future practitioners who only speak Cantonese or Mandarin, and it says other provincial bodies will oversee the profession.

But Kenny says a coalition including thousands of practitioners, acupuncturists, educators and some of the nation’s largest traditional medicine advocacy groups came together to stop the plan. There is now a petition against the proposal which has around 25,000 signatures.

“We know health care in Ontario is already extremely stressed, and here we have this government cutting viable options for health care.”

“We want recognition”

As a practitioner with more than two decades of experience, Mary Xiumei Wu has lobbied for regulation in Ontario and Canada since the mid-1990s and joined the coalition to oppose the bill.

“We are pushing to work with government, opposition, politicians, [and] with our own people, trying to regulate our profession,” Wu said.

“We want recognition,” she told CBC News.

Wu says traditional Chinese medicine is effective when used correctly but dangerous when used incorrectly. Cupping, for example, promotes blood circulation and relieves muscle tension, but can lead to side effects such as scarring, burns and infection. (Nir Elias/Reuters)

Wu, who is also president and founder of the Toronto School of Traditional Chinese Medicine, says she fielded calls and emails from anxious students. She says the move would render programs offered by at least 15 Ontario schools useless.

She also says that under the proposed legislation, practitioners of Chinese medicine and acupuncture will be on the same level as tattoo artists and ear piercers.

“Our students are badly affected,” Wu said, adding that people who want to study the discipline probably won’t do so now “because their dream is to become a regulated, official healthcare professional.” Without the university, she fears that patients are more likely to injure themselves or see their ailments worsen.

Planning a “direct attack” on the Asian community: Del Duca

Health Minister Christine Elliott said the bill would place Chinese medicine practitioners under the Health Care and Support Providers Oversight Authority, which now regulates health care support workers. person. However, registration with the authority would be voluntary. She says acupuncturists will be monitored and regulated by local public health agencies.

“We are confident they will do an effective job and protect the interests of the people of Ontario,” Elliott said at a news conference Thursday.

Premier Doug Ford said the plan to disband the college comes after consulting “many people in this industry” who wanted to overcome language barriers that primarily prevent Cantonese and Mandarin speakers from taking the required exams and get certified.

“They were unlucky. And I don’t think that’s fair,” Ford said.

But the premier also said the province won’t change anything until it consults more with practitioners and other stakeholders.

“Obviously there are concerns and we will make sure to correct them,” he said.

However, Green Party Leader Mike Schreiner said tabling the bill without proper consultation is unacceptable.

“It’s a disservice to the profession as a whole and removes important protections for the public,” Schreiner said in a press release.

Steven Del Duca, leader of the Ontario Liberal Party, pledged to reverse the decision if his party forms government after the June provincial election.

“This was a direct attack on the Asian community, and particularly the Chinese community, and the Ontario Liberals will reverse it,” he said in a press release.

Kenny says valid concerns about access, culture and language could be resolved within the college, not by dismantling it.

“I don’t understand how deregulation answers these questions while keeping the public comfortable, safe and confident in their health care.”

Xian, China, March 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The treatment of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a group of cancers that start in the nose and throat, is complicated by their unique position. Radiation therapy is often the main curative treatment for PCN. However, some patients are resistant to radiation therapy. Research has suggested that a phenomenon called “DNA methylation” has a major influence on radioresistance.

Radioresistance can be mitigated by the use of “radiosensitizers”, chemical compounds that make cells more vulnerable to radiation. In a new study, a team of researchers led by Dr. Qin fan from Southern Medical University and Dr. Ying Lv from NanFang Hospital, Chinaidentified Shengmai Yin (SMY), a traditional herbal medicine, as an effective radiosensitizer for NPC patients.

DNA methylation is an epigenetic change, meaning it is caused by a change in gene expression rather than a mutation in the genetic code. As a result, epigenetic changes are reversible and can often be modulated by phytochemicals. Building on previous studies, we investigated whether SMY could alter DNA methylation status in NPC cells and whether these changes influence the cells’ radiosensitivity.“, says Dr. Fan.

For their study, the researchers first compared DNA methylation levels in two different NPC cell lines, CNE-2 radiosensitive NPC cells and CNE-2R radioresistant NPC cells. CNE-2R cells initially had lower levels of methylated genes than CNE-2 cells. However, after treating CNE-2R cells with SMY, the researchers found that the methylation of some of these genes was restored. One of these genes encodes tenascin-C (TNC), a glycoprotein involved in various cellular processes, including tumor cell invasion, invasion, and migration. Previous studies have shown that reducing methylation of the “promoter” region of this gene increases TNC expression.

The research team compared the expression of TNC in the two cell lines and found that it was overexpressed in CNE-2R cells. They then found that SMY reduced the production of TNC in cancer cells. “We hypothesized that this might be due to restoration of TNC methylation status by SMY. We then confirmed our hypothesis. Our studies suggest that SMY contributes to the methylation of certain promoter regions of the TNC gene called CpG sites. When a protein called specificity protein 1 (SP1) binds to methylated CpG sites, it inhibits the expression of TNC, said Dr. Fan.

The results of the study highlighted three very important aspects of SMY as a therapeutic adjunct during radiation therapy. Dr. Lv elaborates ”First, in addition to reducing the side effects of radiation therapy, it can increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy and reduce the side effects of radiation therapy in NPCs; second, SMY, due to its anti-tumorigenic effect, can serve as a preventive supplement for a community that has always relied on the healing power of traditional medicine. Third, SMY offers an alternative to develop a cost-effective “radiosensitizer” for the pharmaceutical industry.

SMY has the potential to be a safe, effective, and economically viable radiosensitizer and therapeutic adjunct to radiotherapy. Developing pharmaceutical products based on this traditional Chinese medicine could help improve the quality of life and reduce the mortality of patients with NPC.

As Gu Ailing won a historic gold medal in the Women’s Freeski Big Air at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, a Chinese team doctor revealed the role traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) plays in the treatment of Chinese Olympians, Xinhua News Agency reported.

Zhu Jiangwei, a doctor at Sichuan Province Orthopedic Hospital, worked for China’s national big air freeski and slopestyle snowboard team between October 2021 and January this year.

Along with the team, Zhu traveled to Austria, Switzerland, the United States and other countries, providing medical care to team members, including Gu Ailing.

“For athletes, their bones are more likely to fracture on the snowfield”, – Zhu said.

During this period, Gu often came to Zhu after practices and matches. According to her physical features, Zhu applied “Sichuan Zheng-style orthopedic therapy” as physical therapy and guided her to do functional exercises.

“Sichuan Zheng Style Orthopedic Therapy” is an important school of traditional Chinese medicine in the treatment of bone injuries and sports injuries.

“Martial arts and sports actions are used in the treatment process to help athletes quickly recover their physical strength, and effectively prevent and treat injuries”, – Zhu said.

“For Gu’s wounds, I used TCM methods such as acupuncture, massage and bone setting”, – Zhu said.

Zhu recalled that Gu had come to see him many times to consult on traditional Chinese orthopedic rehabilitation treatment.

During the Olympics, Zhu and other MTC doctors also provide medical services to athletes.

Since the 1950s, Sichuan Province Orthopedic Hospital has started the prevention and treatment of sports injuries. Among his patients are well-known Chinese athletes, including Yao Ming, Lang Ping and Guo Jingjing.

The hospital has sent 24 doctors to work for seven Chinese winter sports teams since they began preparing for Beijing 2022.
