Study of TCM Syndrome of Hepatocellular Carcinoma and Colorectal Cancer Based on System Science


Brief description of study

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) syndrome is a core foundation of disease knowledge, clinical diagnosis and treatment and curative effect evaluation in TCM. "Same TCM Syndrome for Different Diseases" and "Same Treatment for Different Diseases" is one of the characteristics of TCM syndrome differentiation and treatment.

This study is the "TCM disease syndrome combination" research baced on principles and methods of system biology, which is through acquisition of primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) and colorectal cancer patients with TCM syndrome information, detection of clinical indicators and genomic, proteomic, and metabolites changes, analyzing the correlation between TCM syndromes and biological information, and revealing its biological material characteristics and the molecular mechanisms of "Same TCM Syndrome for Different Diseases";Developing and implementing the program of TCM syndrome differentiation and treatment for HCC and colorectal cancer to evaluate the efficacy of TCM syndrome based-treatment of HCC and colorectal cancer with TCM syndrom scores, clinical and systems biological indicators, quality of life and survival rate, and to revealing the mechanism of the "Same Treatment for Different Diseases".

Detailed Study Description

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) syndrome is a core foundation of disease knowledge, clinical diagnosis and treatment and curative effect evaluation in TCM. "Same TCM Syndrome for Different Diseases" and "Same Treatment for Different Diseases" is one of the characteristics of TCM syndrome differentiation and treatment.

In this study, the investigators adopted the transcriptome analysis, proteome analysis and metabolic diversity analysis of the patients with different syndromes of liver cancer and colorectal cancer, and integrate omics information, combining macro and micro methods to screen biomarkers of syndromes
