 Herbal Medicine Research                                    Acupuncture Research

 2007 - 2017

From acupuncture to the many hundred different medical herbs – Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is booming. And it is effective: TCM has been practised successfully for more than 4000 years, and the Western demand for something to complement classical Western medicine has been increasing for years. Graz is going to play a central role in TCM research: the „TCM Research Center Graz“ was founded in early March 2007 by Karl-Franzens-University Graz and the Medical University Graz, and subsequently became a competence center that is unique worldwide

Dealing with acupuncture and Chinese medical herbs has a long tradition in Graz: Prof. Rudolf Bauer, Head of the Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Karl-Franzens-University, has been researching the active pharmaceutical ingredients and quality of Chinese medicinal herbs now for 26 years. Prof. Gerhard Litscher, Head of the Research Unit of Biomedical Engineering in Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine at the Medical University of Graz, has dedicated himself to the research of acupuncture using the latest high-tech methods since 20 years. For both, scientific work is the basis for modernization of TCM: „TCM is a kind of medicine that can be evaluated scientifically“, says Rudolf Bauer, „it possesses comprehensible diagnostic methods and uses precise and controllable therapies.“ So, all research work is done based on scientific methods. Gerhard Litscher: „We are interested in basic research and those aspects of TCM that have not been given much attention so far, for example the quantification of new acupuncture techniques such as the painless laser needle acupuncture and electro acupuncture. Possible effects of acupuncture in combination with other methods are also subject to scientific research.“

A scientific report summarizes some of the research activities within the last 10 years and we would like to use the opportunity to thank all peoples for the generous support of the TCM Research Center Graz.

Established in 1955, China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (hereafter abbreviated as CACMS) is China’s largest comprehensive research institute combining scientific research, medical treatment and teaching that is directly under the State Administration of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). It boasts various disciplines, advanced equipment and great research strength and has under it 17 research institutes, six medical institutions, one graduate school, two branch schools, two pharmaceutical companies and publishing houses of ancient books on Chinese medical science. Besides, it is a founder of 18 kinds of academic journals on Chinese medical science.

What is especially worth mentioning is the achievement in artemisinin research, which provided a powerful weapon for humans against malaria and saved hundreds of thousands of lives, making tremendous contributions for human health, and thus CACMS were awarded by Lasker Medical Research Award and in 2015 the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

Acupuncture is one of the key disciplines of research of this renowned university. Medical University of Graz has a close cooperation with China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences on the topic of high-tech acupuncture research. Within the last 10 years, more than 60 joint SCI/PubMed-listed publications have been published with CACMS together. Prof. Litscher from Medical University of Graz is Visiting Professor at the Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion at CACMS. This appointment has been renewed last year during the last visit of CACMS at Medical University of Graz with President Prof. Zhang Boli.

Erfolg durch wissenschaftliche Kooperation mit China.

Gemeinsames Forschungszentrum für TCM in Peking eröffnet

25. September 2007

Am 16. September 2007 wurde in Peking das Sino-Austrian Collaborating Centre for Chinese Medical Sciences eröffnet. Dieses Zentrum ist eine non-profit Institution, welche von der China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (CACMS), dem Eurasia-Pacific Uninet und dem TCM-Cluster Austria als wissenschaftliche Plattform gegründet wurde. Damit sind auch die Rahmenbedingungen für intensive Forschungskooperationen für das im März dieses Jahres gegründete interuniversitäre TCM-Forschungszentrum Graz gegeben. Einen wesentlichen Schwerpunkt bildet dabei die High-Tech Akupunkturforschung, die vom Biomediziner Univ.-Prof. DI DDr. Gerhard Litscher, Leiter der Forschungseinheit für biomedizinische Technik in Anästhesie und Intensivmedizin der Medizinischen Universität Graz, und seinen Mitarbeiterinnen seit mittlerweile zehn Jahren schwerpunktmäßig durchgeführt wird. Zusammen mit Frau Dr. Lu Wang aus seinem Team konnte Prof. Litscher wichtige Forschungsaktivitäten seiner Gruppe bei dieser Veranstaltung und darüber hinaus an zwei renommierten chinesischen Universitäten, der Capital Medical University und der Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, präsentieren.

Nach der feierlichen Eröffnung des Zentrums fand in Peking das dreitägige Sino-Austrian Expert Forum for Chinese Medicine statt. Neben gezielt ausgewählten Projekten zur Erforschung chinesischer Arzneipflanzen stellt das Projekt der Medizinischen Universität Graz zur High-Tech Akupunktur, also der Entmystifizierung der Akupunktur mit modernsten technischen Methoden, eine wichtige Brückenfunktion dar. Hauptziel des gegenständlichen Projektes ist es, erstmals die Grazer Grundlagenforschung der Medizinischen Universität Graz auf dem Gebiet der High-Tech Akupunktur mit notwendigen klinischen Pilotstudien in China zu verbinden. Diese klinischen und auch experimentellen Studien sollen in China von der China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (CACMS), der Capital Medical University und der Beijing University of Chinese Medicine durchgeführt werden. Dabei kommt zum Teil in Österreich entwickeltes und wissenschaftlich erstmals erprobtes Equipment und Know-how zum Einsatz.

Als ein Ergebnis der Konferenz wurden nun sieben spezielle Projekte aus ganz Österreich ausgewählt, darunter eben das oben erwähnte High-Tech Akupunkturprojekt der Medizinischen Universität Graz. Damit sind wesentlich erste Schritte für umfassende Untersuchungen auf dem Gebiet der naturwissenschaftlichen Akupunkturforschung im Rahmen der bilateralen TCM-Kooperation gesetzt.
