Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 269)


Based on the textbooks as data source, such as “Chinese Pharmacopoeia”, “Traditional Chinese Pharmacology”, “Pharmacy” (reference), “The Traditional Chinese Medicine Herbal Essence”, “Pharmacology of Traditional Chinese Medicine” and “New Traditional Chinese Medicine”, etc. We try to find the correlation between the traditional Chinese medicine nature, we built the Chinese Medicine database which include the data of Traditional Chinese Medicine nature, functions and indication. We found the closely frequent itemsets from the experiment results, which can provide a reference for the research of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
