Traditional Chinese Medicines act in many ways in treating and preventing CRF. Components of Chiinese medicines are very complicated, and a single herbal medicine may contain various components. Therefore, the action of Chinese herbal medicine, especially a complex prescription consisted of many herbal medicines, can not be singular. It has to be pleiotropy. Some effective drugs or prescriptions were found in the recent ten years, among whom the effect of Radix et Rhizoma Rhei in treating CRF has been confirmed, and its dosage form were by and by improved.

From the above survey, it is seen that experimental researches in recent years laid their stress on pharmaceutical studies, and systemic research of TCM treatment on CRF and screening of drugs were lacking. Therefore, further prospective research of animal experimental models are still limited, more ideal models in accord with human CRF are expected.
