    A Case Study of Clinical Effect of Water Cupping Combined with Ultrasound Drug Penetration in the Treatment of Acute Lumbar Disc Herniation

    A patient with acute lumbar disc herniation (LDH) was admitted to the outpatient department of our hospital, who, having lifted heavy objects, suffered tingling pain in the lumbosacral region accompanied by limited movement, especially limited flexion, and radiating pain from the outside of right lower extremity to the right ankle. The patient was given a 30-minute ultrasound drug penetration once a day. After the treatment, the water cupping was applied to acupuncture points such as Large Intestine Point (大肠腧), Life Gate (命门), Lumbar Yang Pass (腰阳关), etc. for 10 minutes once every other day. A course contained three days and there was a one-day break between two courses. The patient's lumbosacral pain was relieved and there was no radiating pain in the lower extremities after the treatment of integrated traditional Chinese and Western medicine. This method provides a simple, low-cost, easy-to-operate, safe, and effective Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment for clinical patients with acute LDH.

    Drug Patent Link System in CPTPP and China’s Response

    With the reform of the international intellectual property system, the intellectual property rules in regional trade agreements are gradually leading the development of the international intellectual property system. On September 16, 2021, China formally applied to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The CPTPP intellectual property rules will have a profound impact on China's intellectual property legal system. CPTPP stipulates the drug patent link system, and China is also trying to build a drug patent link system. In order to integrate with CPTPP intellectual property rules and build a drug patent link system in line with China's national conditions, it is suggested to further clarify the patent availability standards of pharmaceutical inventions, simplify the drug marketing approval procedures and improve the patent invalidation procedures.
