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 13 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 (Prof. Tu Youyou).

Acupuncture is one of the key disciplines of research of this renowned institution. Medical University of Graz (Prof. Gerhard Litscher) has a close cooperation with China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (with Prof. Yu Xiaochun) for more than 10 years, and also some activities with Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine on the topic of high-tech acupuncture research. Within the last years, more than 60 joint SCI/PubMed-listed publications have been published with CACMS alone. Prof. Litscher from Medical University of Graz is Visiting Professor at the Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion at CACMS. 

中国中医科学院成立于1955年,是国家中医药管理局直属的集科研、医疗、教学为一体的中国规模最大、学科齐全、设备先进、科研力量雄厚的综合性研究机构,下设17个研究所,6家医疗机构、1个研究生院、2家分院以及2家制药企业和中医古籍出版社,主办13种中医药学术期刊。

特别是中国中医科学院的青蒿素的研究成果,为人类抗击疟疾提供了有力的武器,挽救了百余万人的生命,为人类健康做出了巨大贡献,获得拉斯克临床医学奖,并于2015年获得诺贝尔生理学或医学奖(屠呦呦教授)。

针灸学科是该院的重点学科。格拉茨医科大学(Gerhard Litscher教授)与中国中医科学院(喻晓春教授)在高科技针灸研究方面的紧密合作超过10年,同时也与天津中医药大学在此领域有一定的交流。在过去的几年里,格拉茨医科大学与中国中医科学院共同发表了60余篇SCI/ PubMed检索学术论文。格拉茨医科大学Litscher教授为中国中医科学院针灸研究所的客座教授。

Tu Youyou - Nobel Laureate in Medicine 2015
and Relationships with the Research at the TCM Research Center at the Medical University of Graz

Beijing, China, October 16th and 21st, 2015

 

For the first time in history, the Nobel Prize in Medicine 2015 is awarded to a researcher who is specialized in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The Chinese Tu Youyou received this highest award in medicine for her excellent work in malaria research. Tu Youyou and her team found out that artemisinin, the active ingredient of the medicinal herb "sweet wormwood", represents an effective malaria therapy. Photos of the research on moxibustion using artemisia are also presented here; these studies were carried out at the TCM Research Center Graz, partly in close cooperation with the “China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences”, the institution of the Nobel Prize winner.

Scientific evaluation of acute effects and therapeutic mechanisms of
manual Khalifa therapy in patients with completely ruptured
anterior cruciate ligament in the knee - phase 2

Research at the Institute for Manual Medicine
Hallein, Austria
January 2014

Boris Becker, Roger Federer, Sergej Bubka, Andreas Goldberger – all have been to Khalifa. He treated Franziska van Almsick’s slipped disc and half a
year later she won five gold medals at the European swimming championships in Berlin and set up a new world record. For over 30 years now, the man
from Egypt (born 1947) has been healing the most severe injuries to muscles and joints with his hands alone, at his clinic in Hallein in Austria.
A torn cruciate ligament, arrival on crutches in the clinic, leaving the clinic without crutches, next day back in training:
it sounds incredible but it has happened thousands of times. The Egyptian in Hallein treats the most complicated sports injuries (orthopedic injuries)
without operation, solely through the use of his hands. He has taken a new route in medicine.

A team from our Research Unit had again the opportunity to perform scientific measurements
directly in Khalifa's Institute in Hallein for two weeks. The project is part of a research study investigating Khalifa's therapy
(first scientific publications see below - Litscher G, Ofner M, and  Litscher D).
The next interesting results will be published soon.

Scientific evaluation of acute effects of manual Khalifa therapy in patients
with completely ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in the knee

Research at the Institute for Manual Medicine
Hallein, Austria
January 2013

Boris Becker, Roger Federer, Sergej Bubka, Andreas Goldberger – all have been to Khalifa. He treated Franziska van Almsick’s slipped disc and half a
year later she won five gold medals at the European swimming championships in Berlin and set up a new world record. For over 30 years now, the man
from Egypt (born 1947) has been healing the most severe injuries to muscles and joints with his hands alone, at his clinic in Hallein in Austria.
A torn cruciate ligament, arrival on crutches in the clinic, leaving the clinic without crutches, next day back in training:
it sounds incredible but it has happened thousands of times. The Egyptian in Hallein heals the most complicated sports injuries (orthopedic injuries)
without operation, solely through the use of his hands. He has taken a new route in medicine.

A team from our Research Unit had the opportunity to perform scientific measurements
directly in Khalifa's Institute in Hallein for one week. The project is part of a research study investigating Khalifa's therapy.
The interesting results will be published soon.

摘要:在奥地利,有众多结合医学研究特别是中医学的研究机构,开展了大量相关研究。最近15年来,高科技针刺的研究在奥地利格拉茨医科大学取得了重要的发展。本文介绍了高科技针刺与脑循环和经颅多普勒超声检查(transcranial Doppler, TCD)。TCD 很早就被用于各种基础和临床研究,近10年来被广泛用于衡量各种针刺疗法的疗效。根据多普勒的原理,超声波通过作用于给脑部供血的血管获取针刺引起的脑部血流动力学变化的信息。本文介绍了与针刺相关的TCD技术的基本概念,以及针刺刺激对脑部血流动力学的特异性影响。

High-tech acupuncture made in Austria — cerebral circulation
Gerhard Litscher (Research Unit of Biomedical Engineering in Anesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine and TCM Research Center Graz, Medical University of Graz, Graz, Austria )
ABSTRACT: It is little known that Austria has tradition in research in Chinese integrative medicine, especially traditional Chinese medicine. For more than 15 years, the research concerning high-tech acupuncture has been playing an important role at the Medical University of Graz, Austria. Within this review article, a short summary concerning high-tech acupuncture and cerebral circulation, and transcranial Doppler (TCD) sonography is presented. TCD has been extensively used in various basic and clinical situations, and in the last decade has established its role also as a tool of investigating the effects of various acupuncture methods. Based on the Doppler principle, it uses ultrasound waves to insonate the blood vessels supplying the brain and to obtain stimulation-induced changes of hemodynamic information. The purpose of this review is to present the basic concepts of TCD technique in relation to acupuncture research, and the specific effects on cerebral hemodynamics caused by acupuncture stimulation.

CHINA - Beijing - May-June, 2011

Presse-Information - Zur sofortigen Veröffentlichung - 15. Juni 2011

Medizinische Universität Graz intensiviert Spitzenforschung mit China 

Graz, am 15. Juni 2011: Das interuniversitäre Forschungszentrum für Traditionelle Chinesische Medizin ist im Rahmen der High-tech Akupunkturforschung federführender internationaler Knotenpunkt und strebt im Rahmen des Engagements die Vernetzung der diesbezüglichen Interessen internationaler Universitäten und Institutionen an. Ein Ziel ist der Aufbau von nachhaltigen Kooperationen, u.a. mit chinesischen Spitzenforschungseinrichtungen. Um die führende Rolle der Medizinischen Universität Graz innerhalb der evidenzbasierten Akupunkturforschung international ausbauen zu können, bedarf es gezielter Partnerschaften in diesem Forschungsbereich. 

Um die Bedeutung zu unterstreichen, die der Forschungstätigkeit im Bereich TCM, speziell der Akupunkturforschung, an der Medizinischen Universität Graz beigemessen wird, führte Univ.-Prof. Dr. Dr.h.c. Irmgard Th. Lippe in ihrer Funktion als Vizerektorin für Forschung gemeinsam mit Univ.-Prof. DI DDr. Gerhard Litscher, dem Leiter des TCM Forschungszentrums, sowie Dr. Lu Wang als Koordinatorin in der Zeit von 28.05.-03.06.2011 in Peking wichtige Gespräche und Verhandlungen zur weiteren Zusammenarbeit.


Vizerektorin Irmgard Th. Lippe mit Prof. Gerhard Litscher und Dr. Lu Wang in Beijing - 2. Juni 2011

 Innovative biomedizintechnische Forschung der Med Uni Graz in China äußerst positiv evaluiert

Am 29. und 30. Mai 2011 fand das Final Evaluation Meeting zum Projekt „Traditional Chinese Medicine and Age Related Diseases“ statt. Dabei wurde das Projekt der Medizinischen Universität Graz, welches von Prof. Litscher und Dr. Wang erfolgreich durchgeführt wurde, unter dem Vorsitz von Hon.Prof. Dr. Robert Schlögel als Vertreter des Gesundheitsministeriums und Prof. Dr. Brigitte Winklehner, Präsidentin des Eurasia Pacific Uninet, sowie wichtigen Repräsentanten aus China bestens beurteilt. Es ist dem Team in den letzten Jahren gelungen, ein internationales High-tech Akupunkturforschungsnetzwerk mit zahlreichen Partnerinstitutionen in China aufzubauen. Allein in den letzten vier Jahren entstanden 27 teils SCI-gelistete Publikationen mit insgesamt 68 Autorenschaften aus Österreich und 59 aus China. Die erfolgreichen Forschungsaktivitäten sollen im Rahmen eines Schwerpunktprojektes mit dem Arbeitstitel „Prevention and early intervention of chronic diseases by TCM“ in den Jahren 2011-2014 fortgesetzt werden. 

Med Uni Graz veranstaltete erstes „Transkontinentales High-Tech Akupunktursymposium“ in Peking 

Ein weiterer wichtiger Schwerpunkt im Rahmen des China-Aufenthaltes war die Organisation und gemeinsame Durchführung des ersten transkontinentalen Symposiums „Basic research meets high-tech acupuncture & moxibustion“ am 31. Mai 2011 in Peking. Dieses Symposium wurde von Prof. Litscher und Dr. Wang gemeinsam mit dem renommierten Leiter des Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion an der China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, Prof. Bing Zhu, und Assoc.-Prof. Xinyan Gao in Anwesenheit führender Akupunkturforscher aus Peking und Shanghai unter dem Vorsitz von Prof. Lippe, Prof. Litscher und Prof. Zhu veranstaltet. Aufgrund des großen Erfolges der Veranstaltung wurden bereits unmittelbar danach weitere transkontinentale Veranstaltungen vereinbart. Kernthemen der Tagung waren u.a. neue Elektro- und Laserakupunkturmethoden. Ein Empfang des Österreichischen Botschafters, Dr. Martin Sajdik, bildete einen würdigen Abschluss des Symposiums. 

Hanban-Treffen in Peking auf höchster Forschungsebene 

Am 01. Juni 2011 fand im Confucius Institute Headquarters Hanban ein zweistündiges Treffen auf höchster Ebene statt. Gemeinsam mit dem Präsidenten Prof. Haixue Kuang und Vizepräsidenten Zhongren Sun der Heilongjiang University of Chinese Medicine in Harbin gab es mit der Führungsspitze von Hanban Gespräche über die mögliche Planung eines TCM Konfuziusinstitutes an der Medizinischen Universität Graz. Prof. Lippe und Prof. Litscher hoben dabei die Wichtigkeit des Standortes der Medizinischen Universität Graz für ein derartiges deutschsprachiges TCM Institut, welches das erste im südosteuropäischen Raum wäre, hervor. Derzeit gibt es in Europa lediglich ein TCM Institut in London, konkrete Pläne liegen für die USA und Australien vor. In Ergänzung zum Konfuziussprachinstitut an der Karl-Franzens-Universität könnte dadurch die Steiermark eine noch wichtigere Rolle im medizintechnischen Forschungsaustausch und auch im Bereich der forschungsgeleiteten Lehre mit China spielen. 

Vertragsunterzeichnung an der Pekinger Capital Medical University 

Einen besonderen Stellenwert hatte die Unterzeichnung eines Kooperationsabkommens zwischen den Präsidenten der Capital Medical University (CMU) und Vizerektorin Lippe. In diesem Abkommen wurde speziell die Fortsetzung der intensiven Bemühungen des Teams um Prof. Litscher in den Bereichen Neuromonitoring sowie Akupunkturforschung explizit herausgestrichen. Die im Jahre 1960 gegründete CMU gehört mit den 18 angeschlossenen Spitälern zu den Top Universitäten in China und hatte im letzten Jahr eines der höchsten Forschungsbudgets aller medizinischen Universitäten in China.

CHINA - Beijing - May 31st, 2011

Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend a Transcontinental Symposium focusing on Sino-Austrian High-Tech Acupuncture Research, at the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, May 31st, 2011.

The Sino-Austrian Collaboration Centre for Chinese Medical Sciences was opened at China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences (CACMS) in fall of 2007 with efforts of both sides, and it is a very good platform for the scientists of China and Austria to conduct the joint research in the field of Chinese medicine.

A joint research project of ‘TCM and Age Related Diseases’ has been defined together, which covers 9 sub-projects on quality, safety and efficacy of herbal medicines as well as the effects of acupuncture. For this reason it is necessary that the ‘High-tech Acupuncture Research Team’ from Beijing and Graz meets personally in China and Austria regularly.

The present meeting will surely provide a good opportunity for the ‘High-Tech Acupuncture Research Team’, consisting of scientists from China and Austria, to present the research progress in cooperation, discuss in more detail the joint Sino-Austrian High-Tech Acupuncture Research and how to promote the scientific evaluation of the basic research on high-tech acupuncture.

We look forward to welcoming you in Beijing.

Professor ZHU Bing
(Director of the Institute of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, Beijing, China) and
