Unified approaches to assessing treatment effect of traditional Chinese medicine based on health profiles.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Two dissimilarity indices are introduced to measure the disharmony of a human body system by mimicking the population bioequivalence and the individual bioequivalence concepts.

The proposed methods can also be used when a drug product has multiple components or a trial has multiple endpoints.
