Object : We investigated the effect of Gamiokyaek-tang (GOYT) on immediate type hypersensitivity. Methods : We investigated anti-dinitrophenyl (DNP) IgE-mediated passive cutaneous anaphylaxis and acetic acid-induced vascular permeability in rodents. Also perfonned MTT assay and b-hexosaminidase activity is measured in RBL-2H3. Results : GOYT inhibited passive cutaneous anaphylaxis and acetic acid-induced vascular permeability by oral administration. All the concentrations of GOYT from 0.1 to 5 mg/ml didn't have an effect on cell viability and cytotoxicity. b-hexosaminidase release in RBL-2H3 was significantly reduced by 2 and 5 mg/ml of GOYT. Conclusion : These results indicate that GOYT have inhibition effects on immediate type hypersensitivity .
