To Assess the Anti-anginal Safety and Efficacy of Ivabradine in Subjects With Stable,Symptomatic Chronic Angina
Evaluation of the Anti-anginal Efficacy and Safety of Ivabradine Used in Patients With Stable Effort Angina Pectoris. A 12 Weeks Randomised, Double-blind Controlled, Parallel-group, Multicentre Study

Arms Assigned Interventions

Experimental: Ivabradine Ivabradine 5 mg twice a day for first 4 weeks and 7.5mg twice a day when positive ETT and HR>60times/min or negative ETT and HR>80times/min of subjects.

Active Comparator: Atenolol Atenolol 12.5 mg twice a day for first 4 weeks and 25mg twice a day when positive ETT and heard rate>60times/min or negative ETT and HR >80times/min of subjects.
Washout period:Chronic angina patients stop using medicine that affect heart rate. The patients undergoes ETT after 2-7 days and positive ETT into the treatment period(If not take similar medicine, patients can be carried out ETT directly)。
Treatment period:Patients carried out ETT after therapy with Ivabradine(5mg,bid)/ Atenolol(12.5mg,bid) for 4 weeks.The dose adjust base on test result and heart rate, Ivabradine(5mg,bid)/Atenolol(12.5mg,bid) or Ivabradine(7.5mg,bid)/ Atenolol(25mg,bid) for 8 weeks and carried out ETT.
security period:After the treatment period, all patients to take Atenolol 12.5mg/ 25mg bid 1 week.

If heart rate are low 50 times/min after taking Ivabradine 5mg/ Atenolol 12.5mg, subjects should withdrawal and dropped out study. If subjects heart rate are low 50 times/min after taking Ivabradine 7.5mg/ Atenolol 25mg, subjects should change the dose to Ivabradine 5mg/ Atenolol 12.5mg.
