Modern Chinese Medicine (MCM) Anti-Liver-Fibrosis Treatments

Fibrosis is the common pathogenesis of chronic liver diseases. It can happen in chronic viral hepatitis B, C, and D and also in alcoholic, drug, chemical intoxication, parasitic, and congenital liver diseases. These chronic liver diseases can cause liver cell inflammation, necrosis, and liver fibrosis. Liver fibrosis can lead the chronic liver disease to liver cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, and even liver failure. Whether fibrosis or cirrhosis can be reversed has long been an argument in medical community. Now more and more people, such as hepatologist Rogkin belief that with proper treatment, fibrosis and early stage of cirrhosis is reversible. Anti-fibrosis has been an important research field in treating chronic liver diseases. "He who can stop or hold the progress of the liver fibrosis, he can cure most chronic liver diseases." This statement emphasized the paramount importance of anti-fibrosis therapy in treating chronic liver diseases. Recently with the development of molecular biology and pathophysiology, we have achieved a better understanding of the mechanism of fibrosis and also how it can be treated and reversed. Modern Chinese medicine has focused on anti-fibrosis studies for many years and has developed effective herbal remedies and therapies to hold or reverse liver fibrosis progress.
