"Today I can no longer imagine how I could manage in my daily work without the methods of Chinese Medicine."
Professor Li Shunan from the College of Pharmacy of Dali University has collected the traditional prescriptions and promoted the production of special extractions. The results are to be found in the medicinal product “Chalone.” Among other things, it contains the EGF amino acids (epidermal growth factor) and “Chalone” (an amino acid for controlling cell growth).
In the framework of his research, Prof. Li Shunan has collected, categorised and evaluated hundreds of traditional formulations and secret prescriptions handed down by the Chinese people. His attention has focused on peptides, polyol and mucosaccaride-amino acids as extracts from the periplaneta Americana (American cockroach).
One of his most important discoveries was a new chemical compound which he identifies as “Oligosaccharide-amino acids” (OHAA5). This compound arises through the Maillard-Reaction of amino acids and oligosaccharides. It has an anti-viral effect and also has a therapeutic effect on numerous fibrotic diseases such as cirrhosis of the liver or pulmonary fibrosis. But the most important discovery is the compound’s inhibiting effect on the growth and metastasis of tumour cells because of the positive regulation of cell division.
The so-called “capsules with amino acid from the American cockroach,” which have demonstrated their effectiveness in numerous clinical tests, were developed from this compound.
