Objective: To observe the therapeutic effects of Channel-Unblocking and Turbidity-Descending Formula (Tōng Mài Jiàng zhuóFāng,通脉降浊方) on patients with Angina Pectoris of Coronary Heart Disease (pattern of phlegm-turbidity and blood stasis)coupled with hyperlipidemia , and investigate its mechanism.Methods: 100 patients with Angina Pectoris of Coronary Heart Disease coupled with hyperlipidemia , the pattern of which after syndrome differentiation turns out to be phlegm-turbidity and blood stasis, were randomly selected into treatment group and control group. Then treatment group were dosed typical western medicine and Channel-Unblocking and Turbidity-Descending Formula, while the control group received typical western medicine and oral simvastatin. Channel-Unblocking and Turbidity-Descending Formula composed of starwort root (15g), immature orange fruit (15g), scutellaria root (15g), rhubarb root and rhizome (10g), pinellia rhizome (10g), white peony root (20g), danshen root (20g), Indian bread (20g), aged tangerine peel (20g), and liquorice root (10g).
