[Article in Chinese]

Author information

Department of ICU, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Guangzhou.


Along with the development of Chinese medicine and pharmacy (CMP), Chinese materia medica (CMM) has been used more and more widely at home and abroad. But we have to confront worsening problems such as lack of safety evidence, immature self -formulation technologies, lack of knowledge about their toxicities, and public misunderstanding, especially for patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Therefore, we cardiovascular physicians are requested improve knowledge for CMM preparations and their effects and side effects, supervise and identify the interactions between CMM and Westem medicine. Meanwhile, the researchers are also requested to assess the safety and efficacy of CMM through rigorous experimental designs, further improve the quality, safety, and efficacy of CMM, strictly formulate the specification of CMM products, guide the rational use of CMM by clinicians and the general public.
