Chinese Medicine for Treating Endocrinology-Related Disease

Description

According to new research accepted for publication in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, Chinese herbal medicines are well recognized for their medicinal properties and have been used in traditional medicine for millennia. The medicinal effects attributed to herbal medicines, based mainly on uncharacterized substances or extracts, include depression management, cerebrovascular disease management, Alzheimer’s disease management, antianxiety, immunomodulatory, antioxidant, radical scavenging, anti-inflammatory, antihyperlipidemic or antihypercholesterolemic, hepatoprotective, and antidiabetic effects.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will promote the continuing efforts to further evaluate the effects and the potential usefulness of herbal medicines, including their active compounds. We are particularly interested in articles clarifying the novel active compounds for endocrinology by using both in vitro and in vivo tests in preclinical studies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Systematic review on the effects and potential usefulness of herbal medicines
  • Basic theories and experimental research of herbal medicines for endocrinology
  • Development and testing of novel and effective compounds or composition derived from herbal medicines for endocrinology-related disease
  • Investigation of mechanisms of action of herbal medicines to prevent endocrinology-related disease in cellular or animal models
  • Toxicological studies and safety evaluation of herbal medicines used for endocrinology-related disease treatment
  • Clinical investigations and observations of herbal medicines used for endocrinology-related disease treatment
