Cancer Team Studies Chinese Medicine
Americans,†Chinese†Establish International Center

Western medical professionals, as a whole, have been slow to embrace the practices of traditional Chinese medicine. A new international scientific partnership, however, could now mark a significant step toward greater acceptance of Eastern medical care.

The venture involves researchers at M.†D.†Anderson and the Cancer Hospital, Fudan University (CHFU) in Shanghai, China. A $263,000 grant from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) will establish the International Center of Traditional Chinese Medicine for Cancer, which will investigate the benefits of some traditional Chinese medicine for cancer patients.

During the two-year pilot study, funded by the NCIís Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine, the center will investigate three aspects of traditional Chinese medicine:

* Herbal and natural treatments that target the disease and cancer- and treatment-related symptoms
* Acupuncture for dealing with some side effects of cancer treatment
* Bio-behavioral effects of qigong and other mind/body-based interventions
