This is a unique database project of the Institute of East-West Medicine. The goal is to bring together materials from traditional Asian pharmacopoeias which have potential anti-cancer activity and to provide one unified source for such information with a special emphasis on translated results of laboratory, animal or human clinical experiments already published in native Asian journals or texts otherwise not easily accessible. The intent of all this is to encourage research and discovery which may hopefully lead to new cancer treatments.
