I'm not doing translation to Chinese. I was just doing my Clinical Trials homework/assessment and found some very specific terminologies, such as "Null Hypothesis", "pharmacokinetic", "pharmacodynamic", "placebo-controlled trials", "sepsis", "cardioplegic arrest" ... and there the list goes. Then, I was wondering how should one present such terms in Chinese? I never know that there is "pharmacokinetic trial" in TCM, or even "Phase 1/2/3/4 trials" in TCM. Probably anyone of you knows any links to such concept in Chinese medicine/clinical care or any links to Chinese medical dictionary.... this cures my curiosity

Thank you!

I use online En-Zh dictionary Dec 18, 2013

Hello Esther,

I am not a medical professional and all the words you listed look like Greek to me. Under this situation I will seek help from an online dictionary ( It provides the Chinese translation as well as some example sentences. If the results make sense, I will then Google the translation together with the English source for more references before I choose the final translation.

Hope it helps.
