Network pharmacology analysis on Zhichan powder in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease

Zhichan is a Chinese herb which has been used for its medicinal properties to treat patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease (PD). Dr Chen’s team has recently conducted a systematic analysis of the effects of Zhichan powder for PD treatment. To achieve this, the team used the Traditional Chinese Medicine Systems Pharmacology database to screen for active compounds against PD, and established a medicine-target-disease network model with computational network pharmacology.
