Nobel winner calls for more integration of Western and traditional Chinese procedures

Tu Youyou, China's first Nobel laureate for medicine, described her discovery of the anti-malaria treatment artemisinin as Western medicine inspired by long-established knowledge from traditional Chinese medicine.

"The discovery of artemisinin is a lifesaving gift to human beings from TCM. A combination of TCM knowledge and standard Western medicine procedures led to the success," the pharmacologist said on Thursday.
