TCMSP : Traditional Chinese Medicine Systems Pharmacology Database and Analysis Platform

TCMSP is a unique systems pharmacology platform of Chinese herbal medicines that captures the relationships between drugs, targets and diseases. The database includes chemicals, targets and drug-target networks, and associated drug-target-disease networks, as well as pharmacokinetic properties for natural compounds involving oral bioavailability, drug-likeness,intestinal epithelial permeability, blood-brain-barrier,  aqueous solubility and etc. This breakthrough has sparked a new interest in the search of candidate drugs in various types of traditional Chinese herbs.
