Summary

In order to investigate the roles of Yiqitongyanghuatan (YQTYHT) recipe in reducing the levels of serum cholesterol and plasma lipid peroxidation (LPO), platelet aggregation function (PAgF) and platelet adhesion function (PAdF), the area of atherosclerotic plague coverage in aorta and the thickness of plague, 32 male Japanese white rabbits were divided into 4 groups. The results showed that the YQTYHT recipe could significantly lower the levels of serum cholesterol and tryglyceride, plasma LPO, and PAgF and PadF. The area of atherosclerotic plague coverage in aorta and the thickness of plague in the YQTYHT-fed rabbits were decreased as compared with that in the high-cholesterol-fed rabbits. The above roles might contribute to the main mechanism of YQTYHT against atherosclerosis.
