Various traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formulations were found to work as well as or better than the pharmaceutical drugs interferon and lamivudine for people with chronic hepatitis B, according to a joint U.S./Chinese review of clinical trials published in the February 2010 issue of Hepatology. While many of these studies were considered to be of poor quality according to Western drug testing standards, the review authors concluded that some TCM remedies appear effective and warrant further study.
