Abstract

Objectives : The purpose of this study is to investigate the biological Effect of multi-herbal drug 'KOCO-P1' on mouse macrophage Raw 264.7 cells. Methods : Multi-herbal drug 'KOCO-P1' was composed of Ginseng Radix, Astragali Radix, Polygonati Rhizoma, Liriopis Tuber, and Scrophulariae Radix. Cytotoxicity and cytoprotective activity of K0C0-P1 was verificated by MTT assay. And antioxidative effect of K0C0-P1 against EtOH, Nicotine was inspected by Hydroperoxide assay. Results : K0C0-P1 showed no cytotoxicity on RAW 264.7 cells for 24, 48, 72 hours. KOCO-P1 at 200, 100, and 50 ug/mL reduced the production of H202 in Raw 264.7 cells by EtOH. KOCO-P1 at 50 ug/mL reduced the production of H202 in Raw 264.7 cells by Nicotine. Conclusions : KOCO-P1 could be supposed to have antioxidative effect on macrophage with no cytotoxicity.
