Objectives : Each 2 types of Bangkeehwangkeetang(BHT) and Bangkeebok-ryeongtang(BBT) was prescribed to examined the therapeutic effects on hyperlipidemia. BHT-1 and BBT-1 were composed of Bunbangkee(粉防己, Stephaniae Radix) for Bangkee with other drugs, but BHT-2 and BBT-2 were composed of Cheongpungdeung(淸風藤, Sinomenii acuti Lignum). Methods : Four decoctions prepared from the prescriptions were respectively administrated to animal models in rats such as hyperlipidemic model induced by high cholesterol diet. Results : On the hyperlipidemic model, BHT-2 and BBT-2 would decrease the levels of total cholesterol(Tc) and triglyceride(TG) in blood, on the other hand, BHT-1 and BBT-1, despite little change of Tc, decrease TG but also HDL-cholesterol(HDLc). Conclusion : BBT, especially composed of Cheongpungdeung(Sinomenii acuti Lignum) for Bangkee, could be used more effectively than the others(Stephaniae Radix) on hyperlipidemia.
