Treatment with traditional Chinese medicinal composite is one of the most important characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Studying material base of TCM composite and its mechanism is a key to modernizing the industry of Chinese medicinal herbs. The research for TCM composite can be carried out from many different angles,including multiple components, multiple actions, multiple levels and multiple targets. Such a way to study TCM composite will be beneficial to improving the theory of TCM composite, guiding clinical administration and developing new products.

Key words: composite (TCD), functional mechanisms, methodology
