Challenge of Innovative Technology: How to Improve Efficiency of Korean Medicine?

Description

Advancement in science inevitably brings about the development of medicine. With the state-of-the-art technology, Western medicine continuously innovates. Nevertheless, there are still global health issues to be resolved, that is, chronic pain disease, chronic inflammatory disease, autoimmune disease, chronic sprain, myofascial pain syndrome, ischemic stroke, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, arteriosclerosis, obesity, metabolic disease, type 2 diabetes, vertigo, allergy, infertility, dysmenorrheal, endometriosis, degenerative arthritis, and cancer. Additionally, new emerging infectious diseases such as Ebola, MERS, and bird flu as well as antibiotic-resistant infections have become a threat to humans. Thus, not less than other traditional and integrative medicines, Korean Medicine (KM) is also challenged to innovatively cope with modern health issues.

In 2014, the National Health Insurance of Korea covered 55% of total cost which patients (over 13 millions) paid for medical services provided by Korean Medicine facilities including hospitals and clinics. More detailed, accurate, and valuable data concerned with Korean Medicine (including clinical and basic study) are needed not only to deal efficiently with modern health issues but also to bring about the innovation of Korean Medicine services. To improve efficiency and accuracy in Korean Medicine, modern technology and bioscience are indispensable. The innovation of practice and evolvement in Korean Medicine help people overcome diseases and live healthy.

We encourage contribution by review and original papers that will help in improving efficiency of Korean Medicine with modern technology.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Experimental, preclinical, clinical, interdisciplinary, and statistical study as well as narrative review on Korean Medicine including herbal medicine, acupuncture, Sa-am acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping therapy, pharmacoacupuncture, Chuna therapy, pattern identification, Qigong, acupotomy, and meridian system
  • Study on Anatomic base of Korean Medicine
  • Modern technology, engineering, and medical device with Korean Medicine practice
  • Molecular level study on medicinal plants and multiherbal formulas
  • Scientific study on Sasang typology and Sasang medicine
  • Ethnopharmacological study of traditional medicines
  • Study on traditional medical therapy in other cultural areas
  • Educational system for Korean Medicine based on bioscience and modern technology
