Eastern Medicines, Western Regulation
The EASC Regulatory Science: East Asian Perspectives series represents an exciting collaboration with colleagues at the Health Sciences Campus to cover a wide range of topics on health and wellness that are of vital interest to us today. Regulatory Science studies the regulatory requirements for biomedical products in the United States and elsewhere around the world and East Asia plays a prominent role in all facets of this area -- as developers, manufacturers, and consumers of regulated products.
The next event in this series will focus on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Do you use TCM? Have you tried acupuncture? Both are commonly practiced in China and other Asian countries, based on traditions that go back thousands of years. In most Western countries, TCM gets labeled as Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) and viewed as supplemental to conventional medical practices. Some products are regulated as dietary supplements while others are developed as drugs. We invite you to join us for a discussion on the current state of Eastern medicines in the context of Western regulations.
