Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine provides a 'whole evidence' analysis of the Chinese medicine management of chronic urticaria. The inclusion of classical Chinese medicine literature, comprehensively reviewed using systematic methods, provides the readers with a history of changes in terminology and treatment approaches from pre-Tang dynasty (before 618 AD) to modern times. Rigorous processes have been developed to ensure consistency of the search, extraction and synthesis of data from the classical literature into the body of evidence for urticaria.This book integrates evidence from the contemporary and classical literatures with the results of clinical studies to make evidence-based statements for easy application at the point of care. In addition, the actions of the Chinese herbs most frequently used in controlled trials are discussed in light of the results of in-vivo and in-vitro studies. This provides the reader with an understanding of how these Chinese herbs exert their effects.The authors are internationally recognized, well-respected leaders in the field of Chinese medicine and evidence-based medicine with strong track records in research.
