    The roots of TCM extend back to antiquity — agricultural civilization, until now TCM has been working on clinical practice to ensure national health. TCM, an important branch of Sinology, is a capsule of spirit of Sinology, conforming to Chinese thought. Therefore, carrying forward the original thinking is the premise of development of TCM. This paper which traced and summarized “image thinking” based on the theory of Sinology, tried to explore again the thinking way of “judging the inside by observation of the outside” enlightended by image thinking. This paper aimed to interpret the origin of TCM pattern theory of “taking manifestations as factors, factors as symptoms and symptoms as syndrome” , not to compare TCM with other medicines. At the same time, the clinical practice of image thinking was explained from the psychosomatic medicine model of “inseparability of the body and spirit, mutual induction of sovereign fire and ministerial fire” .

    “Mean” (Chinese:中) stemmed from the hieroglyphs character of oracle “banner”, and “harmony” (Chinese: 和) was originated from the hieroglyphs character of musical instruments. “Mean” and “harmony” had the same extending meaning of “moderate”. “Mean and Harmony” view, interpreted and applied fully in Book of changes, the Analects of Confucius and the Doctrine of the Mean, was the core idea of confucianists’thought to run the emperor and supervise themselves. When the view was expanded into Huangdi's Canon of Medicine, it underlay the concept of life, disease, treatment and health maintenance, which played an indispensable role in the formation of the theories of Huangdi's Canon of Medicine.

    2016, 39 (11):  915-919.  doi: 10.3969/j.issn.1006-2157.2016.11.006
    Abstract ( 355 )   PDF (1325KB) ( 163 )   Save
    Objective To study the effects of Qilongtian on interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (HPH) rats. Methods All male rats were randomly divided into six groups:normal group, model group, bosentan group, Qilongtian high-, mid- and low- group. Except the rats in normal group, those in other five groups were under atmospheric hypoxia to establish HPH model. From the first day of modeling, all medication groups were i.g corresponding drugs for consecutive three weeks. Pulmonary hemodynamic parameters were detected by right heart catheterization under direct vision, mRNA expression of IL-1β and TNF-α in lung tissue were measured using ELISA, protein expression of IL-1β and TNFα in lung tissue were measured using immunohistochemistrical methods. Results Qilongtian and bosentan significantly reduced the level of mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP) , IL-1β and TNF-α expression in HPH rats, and the effect of Qilongtian high dosage was stronger with the dose-dependence. Compared with normal group, expression of IL-1β and TNF-α mRNA and protein increased, and those in model group and bosentan group did significantly(P<0.01). Compared with the model group, there was no significant difference in bosentan group (P>0.05), the expression level of IL-1β and TNF-α were significantly downregulated in all Qilongtian groups (P<0.01 or P<0.05). Compared with the bosentan group and all the Qilongtian groups, there were significant differences, and the Qilongtian high-, mid- dose group had more impact (P<0.01 or P<0.05). Conclusion High, middle and low dosage of Qilongtian reduced pulmonary hypertension, with high dosage prior to bosentan. The mechanism of lower blood pressure may be via downregulating the expression of IL-1β and TNF-α, but it would be influenced by other vascular tension factors and angiogenic factors.
