The course of developing new drugs is complicated system engineering. It covers various subjects such as chemistry, pharmacy, biology, pharmacology, toxic ology, pharmaceutics and clinical medicine etc. And it needs a series of research work such as design of new drugs, pharmacological screening, safety evaluation, technique for preparation, quality control and clinical research etc. In this paper, the research modes of new drugs of TCM compound formula were reviewed. It indicates the research modes should be chosen and used according to actual requirements to improve the level of new drugs research and development.

    Melphalan is associated with severe side effects such as mucositis, diarrhea, and myelosuppression. We investigated how much the individual severity of these side effects is predicted by pharmacokinetics. In addition, we studied glutathione S-transferase GSTM1, GSTT1, and GSTP1 polymorphisms in...
