The Complementary and Alternative Medicine for Antithrombosis

Description

Blood stasis syndrome (BSS) or thrombosis in biomedical terms, which refers to the blockage in the circulation of blood, is attributed to a very complicated pathogenesis which mainly involves hemorheology disorder, microcirculatory disturbance, vascular endothelial cell injury, and platelet aggregation. It is well known that traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a long history for treating thrombosis or BBS. However, the basic and clinical significance of TCM on antithrombosis are not sufficiently visible yet. Therefore, further evidence-based research of the complementary and alternative medicine could enhance the effectiveness in antithrombotic therapies.

We invite authors to contribute original research and review articles that will stimulate basic research, clinical practice, and clinical research of complementary and alternative medicine for antithrombosis. In this special issue, we take particular interest in manuscripts that evaluate and discuss the rationale, methods, mechanisms, clinical practice guidelines, or expert consensus of complementary and alternative medicine for antithrombotic and related therapies.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent advances of complementary and alternative medicine in antithrombosis
  • The use of complementary and alternative medicine in antithrombosis therapies
  • Clinical application of natural origin thrombotic inhibitors in the treatment of blood stasis syndrome
  • SAR studies (structure/activity relationship) of antithrombotic natural compounds
  • Natural substances as lead compounds for new drugs in antithrombosis
