Chinese Herbal Patent Medicines: the Clinical Desk Reference
By: Jake Fratkin
In this new and vastly expanded version of his earlier work on patent medicines, Jake Fratkin covers some 1360 products, including 550 GMP level products and all of California FDB analysis on 505 products. He includes noting of endagered animals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and relevant research on various formulas, plus original text where it first appeared. The text is organized into 12 groups, with a total of 109 chapters. Useful discussions by Andrew Ellis, Subhuti Dharmananda, and Richard Ko append the text. Over 80 pages of full-color photos (with English and Chinese cross-reference) depict the patent medicines. Fully indexed.
