    Abstract:
    Wang, Nai-Yi (2020). The principle of febrile and infllammatory diseases. In: "Evolutionary Progress in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM)", Wang, Lawrence K. and Tsao, Hung-ping (editors). Volume 2, Number 8, August 2020; 206 pages. Lenox Institute Press, PO Box 405, Newtonville, NY, 12128-0405, USA. No. STEAM-VOL1-NUM8-AUG2020; ISBN 978-0-9890870-3-2. ........ABSTRACT:This groundbreaking book systematically characterizes Western drugs, as well as chemicals in the human body, for the first time as having “hot” and “cold” properties. This development, discovered over a 20-year period through chemistry and the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, may help medicinal chemists and drug manufacturers identify new drug leads and predict their potential side effects. One drug lead that this book identifies, for example, is a common feature of compounds that improve memory. Nai-Yi Wang is a Ph.D. organic chemist with a 35-year career in teaching and research at universities and in the pharmaceutical industry. He holds more than 20 patents in synthetic organic chemistry, natural product synthesis, and biotechnology. His research has focused on cardiovascular drugs discovery, anticancer compounds syntheses, and the development of immunoassays. As an organic chemist specializing in natural products synthesis, Wang accomplished the first total synthesis of compactin (an analog of the Merck cholesterol-lowering drug Zocor). He is also an expert in the chemistry of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is the third edition of the book, "The Principle of Febrile and Inflammatory Diseases.” Among the highlight of this edition is a review of the pharmacology of herbal medicine and the application of the "Hot and Cold Theory" in Traditional Chinese Medicine to diseases in which there are currently no effective treatment in Western medicine.
