Background and Purpose : Eucommiae Cortex is one of the effective herbs that have been used in oriental medicine for osteoporosis. The purpose of this study was to know the effect of Eucommiae Cortex on bone histomorphologic change in the ovariectomized rats.Material and Methods : We used 37 4-week-old female Sprague-Dawley rats. They were divided into four groups, sample, sham A, sham B, control troup. At 8 weeks, control and sample group were ovariectomized to induce osteoporosis but sham A and sham B group were administrated with Eucommiae Cortex Extracts. control and sham A group were administrated with normal saline. At administration 10 weeks, all rats were sacrificed and gaind bony-segments of osteoporosis.We stained the specimens with Goldner's modigied Masson's Trichrome, And then we measured bone histomorphometry static parameters and dynamic parameters. We measured the thickness of osteoid and callus as static parameter and mineral apposition rat as dynamic parameter. we observed specimens' histomorphologic change of unioned callus of each group under the microscope of 100 magnifications.Results and Conclusions : At 18 weeks, The osteoid and callus thickness were not significantly changed in every groups. The mineral Apposition Rate(MAR) in sample group was significantly increased compared with sham B group at 18 seeks. The bone volume in femur of mice was not significantly changed in every groups at 18 weeks.From above results, we could expect the prevetive effect of Eucommiae Cortex.

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Acanthopanax Sessiliflorus on the alcohol-induced apoptosis in human ovarian cancer cell line.Methods : The protective effects of Acanthopanax Sessiliflorus (AS) on alcohol-induced apoptosis in human ovarian cancer cell line OVCAR-3 cell were investigated via MTT assay. TUNEL staining, immunocytochemistry, RT-PCR and caspase-3 enzyme assay.Results : In the only alcohol treated group the viability of OVCAR-3 cell were significantly decreased in MTT assay and the morphologic change of apoptosis appeared in TUNEL assay. Also the immunoreactivity of OVCAR-3 cells in immunocytochemistry, caspase-3 mRNA expression in RT-PCR analysis and caspase-3 enzyme activity in Caspase-3 enzyme assay were increased than in the control group.But in the AS pretreated group the viability of OVCAR-3 cells was significantly increased in MTT assay and the morphologic change of apoptosis was not appeared in TUNEL assay. Also the immunoreactivity of OVCAR-3 cells in immunocytochemistry, caspase-3 mRNA expression in RT-PCR analysis and caspase-3 enzyme activity in Caspase-3 enzyme assay were decreased than in the only alcohol treated group.Conclusion : We concluded that Acanthopanax Sessiliflorus has the protective effects on the alcohol-induced apoptosis in human ovarian cancer cell line.
紫河車가 雌性 생쥐의 生殖能力과 Caspase-3, MAP kinase 및 MPG 遺傳子 發顯에 미치는 影響
Gang, Gu Hyeong ; Baek, Seung Hui ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 16, issue 4, 2003, Pages 29~29
Objectives : This study was designed to investigate the effect of Hominis placenta on reproductive performance and differential expression of various genes related cell viability, apoptosis and DNA repairing in the female mice.Material & Method : The decoction of Jominis placenta was administered to 4 weeks old and 23 weeks old mice, once a day for 4 days or 8 days. The total number of ovulated oocytes, the rate of morphologically normal oocytes and the in vitro developmental competence from pronuclear stage oocytes to hatched blastocyst stage embryos were observed. Also we investigated to the expression of Caspase-3, MAP kinase and MPG genes related cell viability, apoptosis and DNA repairing from the ovarian tissues in the female mice administered Hominis placenta.Results :1) After 4 days administration, the total number of released ova showed significant increase in 4-weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group. And the number of morphologically normal ova showed significant increase in 4-weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group too.2) Afer 8 days administration, the total number of released ova showed significant increase in 4-weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group. And the number of norphologically normal ova showed significant increase in-4weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group too.3) In the comparison of the developmental competence from pronuclear stage oocytes to hatched blastocyst stage embryos after 4 days administration, 4-weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group showed significant increase.4) In the comparison of the developmental competence from pronuclear stage oocytes to hatched blastocyst stage embryos after 8 days administration, 4-weeks-old (treated) group and 23-weeks-old (treated) group showed significant increase.5)In the result of medicating the decoction of Hominis placenta for 4 days or 8days to the 4 weeks old mice, the manifestation of Caspase-3 gene decreased. The gene of MAP kinase and MPG was observed to increase in the rate of birth.6) In the result of medicating the decoction of Hominis placenta for 4 days or 8 days to the 23 weeks old mice, the manifestation of Caspase-3 gene decreased. The gene of MAP kinase and MPG was observed to increase in the rate of birth.Conclusion : The study shows that Hominis placenta has significant effects on the increase of the rate of morphologically normal oocyte and in vitro developmental competence. In other words it is useful not only for the function of ovaries of mice but also for the birth rate of a fertilized egg outside the body.

Yeolibhyeolsiljeung((熱入內室證) is defined as invasion of the blood chamber by heat.Clinically Yeolibhyeolsiljeung(熱入內室證) is a morbid condition in which the uterus is affected by exopathic heat during menstruation or after delivery, marked by recurrent chills and fever, tenderness and fullness in the lower abdomen or hypochondriac regions, and mental abnormalities at night. Postpartum Yeolibhyeolsiljeung(熱入內室證) correspond to puerperal fever or puerperal infection.We treated a case of postpartum Yeolibhyeolsiljeung(熱入內室證) its chief complaint was alternate spells of fever and chill(寒熱往來) with Sosihotanghapsamultang(小柴胡湯合四物湯), which is presented with a brief review and related literature.

Polymenorrhea is frequent but regular episodes of uterine bleeding, with cycle lengths of from 16 to 22. It is more common during the perimenarcheal and the menopausal years and has largely anovulatory cycles. Polymenorrhea is a pattern of dysfunctional uterine bleeding. There has been some case reports on DUB(Menorrhagia, Menometrorrhagia) but none on Polymenorrhea.Here we report two cases of Polymenorrhea. We treated each of them by Herb medication and acupuncture, and got good results.In the first case, the 16-year-old polimenorrheic high school girl since mar. 2001 was treated with Sungitanggagam for 10 days 3 times and acupoint of Sp10(Hyulhae, 血海)Liv2(Haenggan, 行間) CV3(Kwanwon,關元) Sp6(Samumgyo,三陰交) LI11(Kokchi,曲池).In the second case, the 32-year-old woman with Polymenorrhea since Jan. 2003 after first delivery 28th Nov. 2002 was treated with Sungitanggagam for 10 days. The acupoints are same to the first case.

Usually in clinics, it's possible to have vaginal bleeding one or two times in early pregnancy. Sometimes they misunderstand that as a menstruation. And if when they get preclinical pregnant loss in early pregnancy they just treat it like a menstruation which is little bit different from ordinary.We report about two cases of such vaginal bleeding in early pregnancy which is posible to be misunderstood as a menstruation.When we treat a woman patient who have fecundity in clinics, we always have to check menstrual history carefully and take care of the possibility of vaginal bleeding and preclinical pregnant loss which is misunderstood as a menstruation in early pregnancy
