This study was performed to evaluate antithrombotic action of Mokdansan(MDS) which has effects of activating blood and removing thrombus. The results were obtained as follows MDS significantly inhibited platelet aggregation indu ced by ADP and epinephrine when analyzed by the Sigmoid Emax model in WinNonlin. EC50 values of MDS were 0.16 mg/ml and 15.59 mg/ml for ADP and epinephrine respectively. MDS showed fibrinolytic activity insignificantly as compared with the control group. MDS increased blood flow rate significantly as compared with the control group in vitro, but insignificantly as compared with the control group in vivo.MDS inhibited pulmonary embolism induced by collagen and epinephrine (inhibitive rate 50 %). MDS increased number of platelet, fibrinogen amount and shortened prothrombin time, activated partial thromboplastin time significantly as compared with the control group in thrombus model induced by dextran.

Kim, Hyun-Jong ; Shin, Yong-Wan ; Lee, Bo-Ra ; Lee, Jung-Eun ; Yoo, Dong-Youl ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 17, issue 3, 2004, Pages 26~26
The purpose of this research was to investigate the effects of Hwangkitang (HKT) on the immune response and blood formation in a delivered-murine model. HKT (500mg/kg) was administerd p.o. once a day for 7 days. HKT decreased the cell viability of thymocytes in vivo and in vitro system, but increased the cell viability of splenocytes in delivered mice. HKT enhanced the population of helper T (Th) cells and decreased the population of cytotoxic T (Tc) cells in thymocytes. In addition, HKT decreased the population of B-lymphocytes in splenocytes. Also, HKT enhanced the production of
-interferon and interleukin-2 in splenocytes. HKT increased the production of nitric oxide in vivo, but did not affect the production of nitric oxide in vitro system. Furthermore, HKT enhanced the phagocytic activity of peritoneal macrophages in vivo and in vitro. HKT partly recovered the level of RBC and hemoglobin decreased by phenylhydrazine at 10 days. These results suggest that HKT increase the specific immune response via enhancement of the viability of splenocytes and the non-specific immunity via enhancement of phagocytic activity of peritoneal macrophages and recover the number of RBC and the volume of hemoglobin in a delivered murine model.

After July 2002, What can we do for menopausal women - A review of recent research about HRT and a proposal of alternative therapies for treating climacteric or menopausal syndrome -
Kim, Dong-Il ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 17, issue 3, 2004, Pages 105~105
Introduction Until July 2002, hormone replacement therapy(HRT) had been the standard therapy in the United States and Korea for treating menopausal symptoms. Not only did hormone therapy relieve such discomforts as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, but it also seemed to protect against several postmenopausal conditions, such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Lots of Korean women believed that HRT has more benefit than side effect. But in July 2002, the Women's Health Initiative(WHI)-a large, multi-tiered clinical trial sponsored by the National Institutes of Health in the United States-reported that hormone therapy actually posed more health risks than benefits for most women1). And as the number of health hazards attributed to hormone therapy grew, doctors discontinued routine prescriptions for this popular treatment. So recently very much Korean women who has been taken HRT worry about its side effects and quit that therapy. They want to find alternative therapy instead of HRT. Korean traditional medicine(KTM) has been used and regarded as a good method for the climacteric syndrome and postmenopausal syndrome. But many patients thought KTM's herbal prescriptions are expensive and inconvenient, moreover acupuncture therapy is very painful, as those reasons HRT is more acceptable than KTM in climacteric or postmenopausal women in Korea.But the circumstances are changed totally after July 2002, other researches that support the WHI's result are continued. Now public health information site in the internet like 'Myoclinic.com' and 'MedilinePlus.com' concern HRT's risks to healthy postmenopausal women and give informations about alternative therapies. So many Korean women who has been taken HRT and someone who hoped to will be take HRT worrying about what is the best choice for their health. But we KTM doctors didn't give enough and correct answers about their worries after our research team translated WHI's result in July 20022). That is very regretful thing to not only KTM doctors but also all Korean postmenopausal women. In this paper we described review of recent research about HRT and its alternative therapies, also we explained the treatment of the climacteric syndrome and postmenopausal syndrome with KTM. Recent research about HRT July 2002 WHI's study population consisted of older postmenopausal women-the average age was 63 at the start of the trial. And who attended that study were healthy uterus remained women. It's unknown whether the study findings can be applied to younger postmenopausal women and hysterectomized women will be continued in western medicine. In this part we introduced recent researches about HRT. Despite decades of use and considerable research, the role of estrogen alone in preventing chronic diseases in postmenopausal women remains uncertain. So Anderson et. al.(Women's Health Initiative Steering Committee) researched to assess the effects on major disease incidence rates of the most commonly used postmenopausal hormone therapy in the United States. This research was a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled disease prevention trial (the estrogen-alone component of the Women's Health Initiative [WHI] conducted in 40 US clinical center beginning in 1993. Enroled were 10,739 postmenopausal women, aged 50-79 years, with prior hysterectomy, including 23% of minority race/ethnicity. Women were randomly assigned to receive either 0.625 mg/d of conjugated equine estrogen(CEE) or placebo. The primary outcome was coronary heart disease(CHD) incidence (nonfatal yocardial infarction or CHD death). Invasive breast cancer incidence was the primary safety outcome. A global index of risks and benefits, including these primary outcomes plus stroke, pulmonary embolism(PE), colorectal cancer, hip fracture, and deaths from other causes, was used for summarizing overall effects. In February 2004, after reviewing data through November 30, 2003, the National Institutes of Health(NIH) decided to end the intervention phase of the trial early. Estimated hazard ratios(HRs) (95% confidence intervals [CIs]) for CEE vs placebo for the major clinical outcomes available through February 29, 2004 (average follow-up 6.8 years), were: CHD, 0.91 (0.75-1.12) with 376 cases; breast cancer, 0.77 (0.59-1.01) with 218 cases; stroke, 1.39 (1.10-1.77) with 276 cases; PE, 1.34 (0.87-2.06) with 85 cases; colorectal cancer, 1.08 (0.75-1.55) with 119 cases; and hip fracture, 0.61 (0.41-0.91) with 102 cases. Corresponding results or composite outcomes were; total cardiovascular disease, 1.12 (1.01-1.24); total cancer, 0.93 (0.81-1.07); total fractures, 0.70 (0.63-0.79); total mortality, 1.04 (0.88-1.22), and the global index, 1.01 (0.91-1.12). For the outcomes significantly affected by CEE, there was an absolute excess risk of 12 additional strokes per 10,000 person-years and an absolute risk reduction of 6 fewer hip fractures per 10,000 person-years. The estimated excess risk for all monitored events in the global index was a nonsignificant 2 events per 10,000 person-years. The use of CEE increases the risk of stroke, decreases the risk of hip fracture, and does not affect CHD incidence in postmenopausal women with prior hysterectomy over an average of 6.8 years. A possible reduction in breast cancer risk requires further investigation. The burden of incident disease events was equivalent in the CEE and placebo groups, indicating no over benefit. Thus, this research suggest CEE should not be recommended for chronic disease prevention in postmenopausal women. So we KTM doctors can get another chance or turning point. 1. Breast cancer HRT is an important etiologic factor of breast cancer. In june 2003, WHI explained the influence of estrogen plus progestin on breast cancer and mammography in healthy postmenopausal women. That report provides randomized clinical trial evidence that postmenopausal estrogen plus progestin use significantly increases the incidence of breast cancer within a 5-year period. The breast cancer diagnosed in women in the hormone therapy group had similar histology and grade but were more likely to have advanced stage vs women in the placebo group. Theres results suggest that invasive breast cancers developing in women receiving estrogen plus progestin therapy may have an unfavorable prognisis. And they suggested that In that study mammographic breast density was not routinely measured, estrogen plus progestin may hinder proper breast cancer diagnosis. Pfleiderer et al. investigated effects of HRT on contrast medium enhancement patterns in postmenopausal patients during magnetic resonance mammography(MRM). In their research the majority of patients receiving postmenopausal HRT showed bilateral symmetrical, continuous enhancement without evidence of a plateau phenomenon or a washout effect deu to HRT in MRM. Hormonal effects could be proven and were reproducible and reversible. Oestreicher et al. studied breast cancer etiology in tumor cell proliferation They said certain factors related to hormonal exposure that influence breast tumor etiology, for example, age also appear to increase tumor growth. Conversely HRT use, which clearly increases breast cancer risk, may not adversely affect, and possibly may diminish cell proliferation once tumors are established. 2. Dementia Dementia is an attendant risk of the HRT. And Galen et al. concluded given equivalent groups of users and nonusers of HRT no support was found for the hypothesis that use of HRT improves cognitive performance in older women. 3. Heart disease and stroke Coronary heart disease and stroke are also attendant risk of the HRT. And HRT has no place in secondary prevention of coronary or carotic artery disease. So its use in these patients mush be based on solid nonvascular indications and expected benefits from these causes. La Vecchia concluded HRT is associated to a moderate excess risk in randomized studies, and should therefore not be used for the prevention of stroke. 4. Colorectal cancer, osteoporsis-related hip fractures and fewer instances of colorectal cancer. And its effect to hot flush remains unchanged. But these positive effect about osteoporosis and hot flushes have many alternatives such as exercise, calcium rich foods, acupuncture and KTM herbal drugs.

Purpose : Researches on alternative oriental medical therapy have been demanded due to the implication of hormone replacement therapy commonly applied for the climacteric symptoms. Therefore, we surveyed women in the postmenopausal periods to understand their perception on climacteric phases, experience of any physical and psychological changes, their needs and wants in therapy, impression on hormone replacement therapy and perception on the oriental medicine as a choice of postmenopausal therapy. We expect this survey will serve as a framework for the planning of postmenopausal clinical therapy in Oriental Gynecology. Method : From June 1 to July 1 2004, we randomly selected 63 women in the postmenopausal period in the age of 44-59 who visited Dong-In-Dang Oriental Medical Hospital and surveyed with questionnaire. Result :1.57.1% of selected subjects had an experience of postmenopausal therapy. Hormone replacement therapy was the primary choice of therapy (80.6%) for their climacteric symptoms and 33.3% had an experience of oriental medical therapy.2. Osteoporosis is one of the most concerned climacteric symptoms. Since long-term administration of hormone is discouraged due to various adverse side effects, oriental medical therapy is expected to play a significant role in controlling osteoporosis of women in climacteric phase. 3. According to the report from NIH, possible side effects of hormone replacement therapy include breast cancer (71.4%), heart disease (19.%), stroke (12.7%) and arterial thrombosis (7.9%). Subjects didn't perceive most of side effects of hormone therapy except for breast cancer. They seemed to have vague fear for the cancer as the side effects of the hormone therapy without knowing the rest of individual side effects. 4. Subjects were willing to have oriental postmenopausal therapy in the future (84.1%), suggesting strong preference for oriental medical therapy but lack of recognition of postmenopausal therapy in Oriental Gynecology was one of obstacles, while the biggest obstacle was the high cost of oriental postmenopausal therapy.

Purpose : This study was carried out to acquire the information about health status and health promotion behavior of Korean Buddhist nuns. And we hoped to find the way of proper medical care for health promotion of them. Method : This study was composed of medical examination(blood pressure check, blood test, body composition analysis with electric impedance(In-body 3.0), SA2000) and questionnaire survey. Medical examination was done to 31 Buddhist nuns on June 2004. And this medical examination results of 31 Buddhist nuns were compared with 31 women patients of same ages were done general health examination in Gang-Nam oriental medical hospital, Dongguk university. Questionnaire survey of 60 Buddhist nuns was done. Results: In medical examination results, the percentage of Buddhist nuns who need to vaccinate hepatitis B was 67.7%, and significantly higher than control group. Hemoglobin and total cholesterol levels were significantly lower than control group. But Body mass index and edema index level were significantly higher than control group. In questionnaire survey results, Health status of most of Buddhist nuns was poor and digestive system and musculoskeletal system symptoms were mainly complained. And health managements of most of the Buddhist nuns were insufficient. Conclusion : Health status of most Buddhist nuns was not good and easily got Anemia, hypolipidemia and obesity. In future, the effort must be done in hepatitis B vaccination and regular health examination about Buddhist nuns.

The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 17, issue 3, 2004, Pages 179~179
Purpose: Radiotherapy is an irreplaceable method of cervical cancer treatment, but it has several complications, especially acute or chronic gastrointestinal complications. In the case of severe hematochezia, western medical therapy is usually ineffective. The purpose of this study is to report the effect of oriental treatment for hematochezia after radiotherapy of the cervical cancer. Methods: We observed and treated two patients, 78-year-old female and 39-year-old female, who had hematochezia after radiotherapy of the cervical cancer. In oriental medicine, spleen and stomach are the origin of the acquired constitution and the spleen controls blood within the vessels(脾統血). We regarded the cause of these cases as insufficiency of spleen and stomach(脾胃虛弱). So, the patients were treated by combination therapy of acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medicine to invigorate the spleen and stomach to benefit Qi(健脾胃益氣). Result: After oriental treatment of acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medicine to invigorate the spleen and stomach to benefit Qi(健脾胃益氣), hematochezia was decreased and additionally general weakness and anorexia were improved. Conclusion: It is expected to increase demand of oriental treatment under the circumstance of insufficient western treatment for gastrointestinal or genitournary complications after radiotherapy of the cervical cancer. And many researches and case studies will be needed about complications after radiotherapy of the cervical cancer.

Panic disorder is that suffering panic accompany severe symptoms, such as dyspnea, feeling of chocking, palpitation, chest discomfort or pain, sweating, feeling of dizzy, trembling of shaking, abdominal disorder, numbness or tingling sensations, chills or hot flushes, fear of dying, fear of losing control or going crazy, yet there is no real indisposition. The women in climacteric, they may suffer from palpitation, feeling of ascending fever, feeling of anxiety, which are similar to the symptom of panic disorder. If the women, who are under panic disorder, get going with the menopause, they will feel more painful. This case is that of a woman in her late fifties who are diagnosed as panic disorder 10 years ago. She suffered the climacteric while treated with panic disorder and the respective symptoms got worse. However, her symptoms became much better after oriental herb treatment for them for five months. During the treatment, a favorable turn of the menopausal hormone was shown in the lab tests and on the sheets for diagnosing panic disorder.

Park, Young-Sun ; Kim, Dong-Chul ; Baek, Seung-Hee ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 17, issue 3, 2004, Pages 199~199
Uterine myoma is the most common gynecologic neoplasm in women. Western medical treatments for uterine myoma are hysterectomy, myomectomy, and the use of GnRH agonists etc. But in oriental medicine, it can be similar conceptional Jingha(징가), which is a sort of pelvic mass, so it has been treated as blood stasis. The purpose of this study is to report 2 cases of treatment of uterine myoma, diagnosed by ultrasonographic examination. We used Sobokchukyetang-gami(少腹逐瘀湯加味) in one case diagnosed as blood stasis due to coldness(寒凝血滯) and Guibiondamtang-gami(歸脾溫膽湯加味) in the other case dignosed as blood insufficiency of the heart and spleen (心脾血虛). After this treatment, all the symptoms of uterine myoma were improved and the size of the uterine myoma was reduced significantly. So it indicates that the oriental medical treatment is effective on the 2 cases with uterine myoma, but continuous observation and study are needed.
