Evaluation of the clinical efficacy of Chinese medicine is very important.

However, “I think these indicators are not enough to explain the efficacy of Chinese medicine and prevent mild patients from turning into severe ones. This may be a core indicator.”

“There is no death without severe illness, and the cost of a severely ill patient is dozens of times different from that of a mildly ill patient.” Based on these studies, Academician Zhang Boli reported to the World Health Organization and asked him to propose “not turning mild to severe” as the core. The idea of ​​the indicator was discussed with the University of Liverpool, and finally, this indicator idea was accepted by the World Health Organization.

It has played an extremely important role in the prosperity of the Chinese nation and the maintenance of national health. It has only been more than 100 years since Western medicine entered China. Although traditional Chinese medicine is ancient, its philosophy is not backward, for example, The harmony between man and nature, precision medicine, and system science is now fashionable. They are called the unity of nature and man, syndrome differentiation and holistic concepts in Chinese medicine, which were put forward thousands of years ago.”

The role of traditional Chinese medicine in the fight against the epidemic has been seen by people across the country.

However, Academician Zhang Boli believes that the knowledge content of Chinese medicine belongs to traditional medicine, and some of it originated thousands of years ago. Although we have developed in all dynasties, it is too poorly integrated with modern science, and its modern scientific connotation needs to be revealed. my country has started the modern and technological work of Chinese medicine in 1996, and Academician Zhang Boli has been the leader of this expert group ever since. At present, the output value of traditional Chinese medicine across the country has reached trillions, but the manufacturing level is only electronic and mechanized.
