The pathogenesis of cardiac diseases is very complex and involved in many gene transcription and protein expression. How to effectively treat the diseases has become the hotspot of modern medicine. Accumulating evidences over the past decades on integrative medicine have shown us hopeful future prospects. With the development of modern biomedicine, such as sketch mapping genomic sequence, functional genomics, proteomics and pharmacogenetics, more advanced techniques could be applied in elucidating the possibly complicated biological networks, or complex pathological and physiological mechanisms underlying cardiac diseases, by which integrative medicine will also bring out some new and more effective strategies in the treatment of cardiac diseases. Abbreviations: WM, Western Medicine; CDs, cardiac diseases; BP, blood pressure; TCM, Traditional Chinese medicine; CHM, Chinese herbal medicine; CHF, cardiac heart failure; PCI, post-percutaneous coronary intervention; CHD, coronary heart disease; ACS, acute coronary syndrome.
