Trial identifier NCT01897805, TG0930BXW

Summary

Title:

A randomized, double-blind, multi-centered, placebo-controlled trial to examine effects of of Heart-protecting Musk Pill on clinical outcomes in patients with chronic stable coronary artery disease

Objective:

To examine effects of of Heart-protecting Musk Pill, a traditional Chinese medicine, on clinical outcomes in patients with chronic stable coronary artery disease

The study hypothesis:

The null hypothesis: the combined incidence of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke in the treatment group is the same as that in control group.

The alternative hypothesis: the combined incidence of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke in the treatment group is different from that in control group.

Sample size:

2700 patients will be randomized, 1350 in treatment group and 1350 in placebo group.

Number of sites: 99 sites in China

Study drugs:

Heart-protecting Musk Pill and the matching placebo pills.

Design:

A randomized, double-blind, multi-centered, placebo-controlled trial. Patients will be randomized to treatment group and placebo group after screening and get corresponding treatment as follow.

Treatment group: Standard treatment for coronary artery disease plus 2 Heart-protecting Musk Pills each time, three times a day by mouth for 24 months.

Control group: Standard treatment for coronary artery disease plus 2 placebo pills each time, three times a day by mouth for 24 months.

Patients will be followed up at baseline, 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 months after randomization. During follow-up period, patients could undertake PCI or CABG if angina get out of control or evidence of ischemia aggravated is found.

Primary Outcomes

Measure
The combined incidence of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, nonfatal stroke
time frame: 24 months

Secondary Outcomes

Measure
