Description

This seventeenth volume of the Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine series aims to provide a multi-faceted 'whole evidence' analysis of the management of Colorectal Cancer in integrative Chinese medicine.Beginning with overviews of how colorectal cancer is conceptualised and managed in both conventional medicine and contemporary Chinese medicine, the authors then provide detailed analyses of how colorectal cancer and related disorders were treated with herbal medicine and acupuncture in past eras.In the subsequent chapters, the authors comprehensively review the current state of the clinical trial evidence for Chinese herbal medicines (Chapter 5), acupuncture (Chapter 7), other Chinese medicine therapies (Chapter 8) and combination Chinese medicine therapies (Chapter 9) in the management of colorectal cancer, as well as analyse and evaluate the results of these studies from an evidence-based medicine perspective.

Chapter 6 provides a review and a summary of the experimental evidence for the bioactivity of commonly used Chinese herbs.

The outcomes of these analyses are summarised and discussed in Chapter 10 which identifies implications for the clinical practice of Chinese medicine and for future research.This book can inform clinicians and students in the fields of integrative medicine and Chinese medicine regarding contemporary practice and the current evidence-base for a range of Chinese medicine therapies used in the management of colorectal cancer, including herbal formulas and acupuncture treatments, in order to assist clinicians in making evidence-based decisions in patient care.The following features mark the importance of this book in the field:
