Modernization of Traditional Oriental Medicine: New Dosage Forms and Medical Instruments

Description

Traditional Oriental Medicine has been developed for thousands of years; however recent developments in pharmaceutical technology promote modernization of Traditional Oriental Medicine rapidly to expand accessibility, ease of administration, and cost-effectiveness. Various forms of herbal medicine are improved for better efficiency and consumer preferences including soft extracts, granules, intranasal administrations, eye drop, drop pills, injection, and capsules. In-depth researches on safety and efficacy of these formulations are ongoing.

Another trend on modernization of Traditional Oriental Medicine is an integrated application with technology. Progress on technology has developed Oriental Medical Instruments.
