How Chinese medicine kills cancer cells
Researchers at the University of Adelaide have shown how a complex mix of plant compounds derived from ancient clinical practice in China – a Traditional Chinese Medicine – works to kill cancer cells. Compound kushen injection (CKI) is approved for use in China to treat various cancer tumours, usually as an adjunct to western chemotherapy – but how it works has not been known.

This study, published in the journal Oncotarget, is one of the first to characterise the molecular action of a Traditional Chinese Medicine rather than breaking it down to its constituent parts. “Most Traditional Chinese Medicine are based on hundreds or thousands of years of experience with their use in China,” says study leader, Professor David Adelson, Director of the Zhendong Australia – China Centre for the Molecular Basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Professionalism in safe practice of Chinese herbal medicine and its way forward
The Chinese Medicine Board of Australia (CMBA) introduced the new Guidelines for safe practice of Chinese herbal medicine on 16 Nov 2015. The Guidelines will formally effect in November 2017. Dr Sherman Gu will systematically and comprehensively interpret these guidelines and highlight the essentials for attention by using some previous cases from discipline hearing. Please bring in your Chinese herbal medicine prescriptions or labels for his comments. Dr Bill Fan will demonstrate how to use a Chinese medicine management software to record and print prescriptions or labels meet CMBA’s requirements.

He completed his postgraduate study in RMIT University where he currently engages with teaching and research in Chinese medicine.

He has attended a few hearings and his appointment has been renewed by the Victorian Government in 2012 when Chinese medicine profession has been legislatively regulated in Australia.
