DHI: Danhong injection; NM: not mentioned; CMT: conventional medicine treatment, including the combination of platelet aggregation inhibitor (aspirin), nitrates, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and ACE inhibitors; RAS: resolution of angina symptoms; ECG: electrocardiogram; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein-cholesterol; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein-cholesterol; HS-CRP: high sensitive C-reactive protein; indicates the intervention of 2 trials that were conventional medicine treatment plus DHI versus conventional medicine treatment plus Danshen injection; CNKI: China National Knowledge Infrastructure; CBM disc: Chinese Biology Medicine disc.
