Objectives The purpose of this study is to report on the collecting status of the prospective clinical data, that is designed to find clinical factors for determining the constitutional prescription.Methods We collected the prospective clinical data of 1208 subjects in the 10 oriental hospitals and 2 oriental clinic, from September 2012 to July 2015. Subjects were diagnosed and prescribed by the Sasang Constitution specialist. We counted the usage frequency of each constitutional herbal formula. Besides we check the main chief complaints on each constitutional herbal formula.Results & Conclusions In TE type, Yeoldahanso-tang, Cheongsimnyeonja-tang were used in high frequency. In SE type, Palmulgunja-tang, Gwakhyangjunggi-san were used in high frequency. In SY type, Hyeongbangjihwang-tang, Yanggyeoksanhwa-tang were used in high frequency. The both of high frequency-prescriptions in TE types were for the Interiorheat disease, expecially liver-heat lung-dry symptomatology. The main chief complaint of high frequency-prescriptions was fatigue in every constitution. We hope that the process of constitutional prescription would be standardized through the subsequent researches.
