Category: NCCAM Lectures
Runtime: 01:00:00
Description: A major challenge to conducting rigorous studies to evaluate the efficacy and mechanisms of CAM interventions is the need for sensitive methods for measurement and detection of physiological and molecular outcome measures, which can be applied to subjects with minimal stress and distress. In this lecture, Dr. Sternberg will describe the development of a method to measure neural and immune biomarkers in sweat as one potential approach, and will also touch on other methods, such as heart rate variability, which can be applied under selected conditions to achieve these goals. Case studies using these approaches will be described.

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine presents the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Consult Service lecture series. The series provides NIH Clinical Center staff with the opportunity to learn more about how the integration of various complementary and alternative medicine treatments can affect approaches into the research and practice of medicine.
