To observe the effect of Jiangzhikangyanghua Mixture on high-sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) and vascular endothelial functions of essential hypertension (EH) patients. In this study, 72 cases of out-patients with EH were selected from department of cardiology of Wujin hospital of traditional Chinese Medicine, and randomly divided into the control group (n=36, amlodipine 5 mg qd + valsartan 80 mg qd) and the test group (n=36 amlodipine 5 mg qd + valsartan 80 mg qd + Jiangzhikangyanghua mixture 20 mL tid). The contents of hs-CRP, ET-1 and NO were measured before and after treatment for two months. The result showed that the contents of hs-CRP, ET-1 in both groups reduced (P<0.05), while the test group show a more significant reduction than the control group (P<0.05). After the treatment, the content of NO raised in both group, while the test group show a more significant increase than that of the control group (P<0.05). This study indicated that Jiangzhi Kangyanghua mixture could reduce the contents of hs-CRP and ET-1 and raise NO of EH patients. Source
