Transfer bald, also known as sarsaparila, along with other species of the genus Smilax the family přestupovitých (Smilacaceae) used in TCM (rhizoma smilacis glabrae = the fu ling). We used the name "Sarsaparilla" taxonomically bit vague because theoretically may relate both to the taxon Smilax regelii Killip & CV Morton (son. Smilax officinalis auct.) And the Smilax officinalis Kunth and also to transfer podražcolistému (Smilax aristolochiifolia Mill.), which was also described synonymously as Smilax medica Schltdl. & Cham.
In TCM transfer glabrous used to treat infectious diseases (including syphilis and gonorrhea), gout, liver problems, and cancer (see Introduction study She2015ssg documenting antitumor effects transfer).
