1 Targeting Systems: New Strategy for Computational Biology in Traditional Chinese Medicine Yun Wang Research Center for TCM Information Engineering Beijing University of Chinese Medicine

2 Outline Background Systems: the way for TCM to realize the clinical effects Targeting systems A Proposed Platform for System-targeting TCM research A Simple Example

3 Background Purpose 1: Explain the functional mechanism of TCM Purpose 2: Provide lead compounds for structure optimization Focus on: discovery of active components from TCM Unfortunately: 1. weak effect of the components 2. activity dispersion during component separation 3. no better than “western medicine”, no better than TCM 4. seldom successful stories.

4 Systems: the way for TCM to realize the clinical effects Fact1: Weak effect of components Fact2: Validated effect of TCM by clinical practice Inference: Interaction among components Direct Interaction (seldom) Indirect Interaction (often) TCM related Biological system Systems are the targets of TCM function TCM function

5 Targeting systems: interpreting the mechanism of TCM function Direct Interaction (seldom) Indirect Interaction (often) TCM related Biological system Mechanism of TCM function

6 Targeting systems: bridging biology and TCM theory Direct Interaction (seldom) Indirect Interaction (often) TCM related Biological system TCM function TCM theory

7 Targeting systems: providing new cues for the treatment of complex disease Direct Interaction (seldom) Indirect Interaction (often) TCM related Biological system TCM function TCM theoryValidated clinical prescription

8 Targeting systems: providing new resource for drug development Direct Interaction (seldom) Indirect Interaction (often) TCM related Biological system TCM function TCM theoryValidated clinical prescription Impact based molecular target selection “Remote” interruption of systems Complex drugs
