Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an important component of comprehensive therapies in gastric cancer. Previous studies have shown that TCM can reduce the side effects of chemotherapy, and prevent and delay the recurrence and metastasis in gastric cancer patients after surgery. However, the population for which TCM treatment is indicated is still undefined. Recently, the physical constitution has been proved to be closely related to pathogenic factors of the body, therapeutic sensitivity and prognosis. To define the population for which TCM treatment is indicated from the perspective of TCM physical constitution theory will help understand the important role of TCM in the prevention and treatment of gastric cancer.
