The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 18, issue 3, 2005, Pages 1~16
Purpose : This study is to examine what are the effects of the Guisinhwan(GSH) on the ovulation and ovary in rats. Methods : 4weeks Female Sprague-Dawley 12 rats of weighting 160-l80g, were divided into three groups including the GSH oral administration(4ml/kg) groups(4heads) and GSH oral administration(8ml/kg) groups(4heads). Then we observed changes in the serum concentrations of FSH, LH, and estradiol(
) and the histological changes of ovary and the immunohistochemical staining for progesterone receptor in ovary of rats. Results : 1. GSH didn't make a difference as compared with control group in serum FSH level. 2. GSH didn't make a difference as compared with control group in serum LH level. 3. GSH significantly increased serum
level. 4. GSH significantly increased ovulation in histological observations of ovary. 5. GSH tended to decrease immunohistochemical staining score (ISS) of atretic follicles in immunohistochemical staining for progesterone receptor in ovary. Conclusion : GSH influences ovary to increase the ovulation of rats.

Purpose : These studies were undertaken to evaluate the effects of the administration of different concentrated Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution on the spermatogenic abilities such as concentration, motility and morphological normality of sperm from the testis and the activities of sperm hyaluronidase, testicular peroxidase and testicular catalase. Methods : We used the 2-month-old mice and administered the extract solution of Morindae officinalis Radix in the different concentration once a day for 60 days. The control group was administered the normal saline in the same way and duration. We examined the number of total, motile and normal sperm from the cauda epididymis, the activities of sperm hyaluronidase, testicular peroxidase and testicular catalase. Also we observed changes of isolated testis before and after administration of Morindae officinalis Radix extract solutions the mice. And we compared to the testicular tissue especially seminiferous tubules between control and treated group by histochemical methods. Results : The significant dose-dependent differences were observed in the concentration of total sperm, the motility and normality of spermatozoa of Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution administered groups compared to the control group, respectively. In the histological analysis of the testicular tissues, the enlargement of testicular lobe diameter and apparent vasculogenesis between testicular lobes were observed in the Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution administered groups compared to the control group, respectively. Also, the activity of hyaluronidase was significantly increased in the Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution administered groups compared to the control group. In the antioxidant activity analysis, the activity of testicular peroxidase was significantly increased in the Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution administered groups compared to the control group, respectively. Conclusion : This study shows that Morindae officinalis Radix has the beneficial effect on the concentration, morphology and motility of sperm, the activities of sperm hyaluronidase and testicular peroxidase. We can suggest that Morindae officinalis Radix extract solution be useful for the treatment of male sexual dysfunctions and infertility.

Purpose : This study was carried out to investigated the effects of Saenghyeolbosu-Tang on the morphometric changes of femur, and on the hormones and cytokines associated with bone metabolism in ovariectomized rats. Methods : Twenty-four female Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into sham operated group(normal), ovariectomized group(control), and treated with extract of Saenghyeolbosu-Tang group(treated). Each group was evaluated the changes of body weight at 0, 3, 6, 8, weeks after ovariectomy. Morphometric analysis(femur weight, femur/body weight, femur ash weight, femur ash/body weight, cross sectional area of compact bone and cancellous bone of femur) and histopathological examination were performed at 8 weeks after ovariectomy. Estrogen and cytokines(
, IL-6) assay were performed at 8 weeks after ovariectomy. Results : 1. The femur weight(g) of treated group(1.59
0.08) was significantly increased(p<0.05)compared with the control group(1.50
0.07) at 8 weeks. 2. The femur/body weight(g) of treated group(5.27
0.36) was significantly increased(p<0.05) compared with the control group(4.78
0.37) at 8 weeks. 3. In the cross sectional area of cancellous bone of femur(
) the treated group(1.60
0.20)was significantly increased(p<0.01) compared with the control group(1.19
0.19) at 8 weeks. 4. The serum estrogen level(pg/ml) of treated(83.67
27.44) and control group(800.49
22.27)showed no significantly different changes at 8 weeks. 5. The serum
level(pg/ml) of treated(33.71
6.43) and control group(41.35
8.47) showed no significantly different changes at 8 weeks. 6. The serum
level(pg/ml) of treated group(53.78
10.83) was significantly decreased(p<0.001) compared with the control group(79.80
11.40) at 8 weeks. 7. The serum IL-6 level(pg/ml) of treated group(55.52
9.02) was significantly decreased(p<0.01) compared with the control group(69.69
7.95) at 8 weeks. Conclusion : This study shows that Saenghyeolbosu-Tang inhibits bone resolution in ovariectomized rats. These results may be related to the inhibitory effect of Saenghyeolbosu-Tang on the secretion of

Purpose : The Purpose of this research was to investigate the effects of Cheongyeolhawlhyeoltanggagyehyeoldeung (CYHHT) on anti-inflammatory effects. Methods : As for the parameters of inflammation, levels of several inflammatory cytokines and chemical mediators were determined in mouse lung fibroblast cells(mLFC) and RAW264.7 cells. Also, changes in pathological features by drug treatment were investigated in the in vivo edema-induced rats by carrageenin /arachidonic acid or in the colitis-induced mice by DSS treatment. Results : The cytotoxicity of CYHHT on mLFC and RAW264.7 cells was not observed at 100, 50, 10, and
of CYHHT treatments.
, IL-6 and NOS-IImRNA expression of RAW264.7 cells was inhibited by CYHHT treatments in a dose-dependent manner. CYHHT treatment of RAW264.7 cells inhibited
and COX-2 mRNA expression. CYHHT treatment of RAW264.7 cells significantly inhibited IL-6 and NO production. CYHHT treatment of RAW264.7 cells inhibited ROS production. CYHHT inhibited rat's paw edema induced by carrageenin or arachidonate treatment in all concentrations examined. The body weight and colon length of colitis-induced mice were recovered to a normal level by DSS treatment. Clinical disease levels were significantly improved compared to the control animals. CYHHT treatment of colitis-induced mice significantly increased hematological values such as WBC and RBC counts, Hgb and HCT levels, but decreased PLT values. CYHHT treatment of colitis-induced mice decreased IL-6 and
production significantly CYHHT treatment of colitis-induced mice significantly increased CD3+(T) cell counts. In contrast, CYHHT treatment decreased CD19+ B cell counts and CD3+/CD69+ significantly, and also decreased B/T ratio (%) though not significant. Conclusion : These results indicated that CYHHT could be used for treating diverse female diseases caused by the inflammation.

Purpose : The Purpose of this research was to investigate the effects of antithrombotic activities of Wuslsan (WSS). Methods : Measure the effect which was given to blood flow rate through the regular volume of glass tube after the blood was diluted five times with ACD soulution. Antithrombotic effect was calculated as a percentage of the experimental animal figure protected from the paralysis of hind legs or death of the mouse that is caused from the administration of platelet aggregation regent. Being classified one group of eight mice, each of them was divided into Normal, Control, and WSS. The normal group supplied a saline solution and the control group brought the dextran extravasated blood after an hour of administering the saline solution. Also WSS was dissolved in 2ml saline solution and then we dosed it to the experimental mice with Oral Zonde one day before the experiment. After that, the mice were abstained from food. And then we gave a measured amount of it before an hour. Finally, it gave rise to dextran extravasated blood in the same way as the Control group. Results : The results were obtained as follows. WSS inhibited platelet aggregation induced by ADP and epinephrine significantly as compared with the control group. WSS showed fibrinolytic activity insignificantly as compared with the control group. WSS increased blood flow rate significantly as compared with the control group in vitro. WSS inhibited pulmonary embolism induced by collagen and Epinephrine(inhibitive rate is 37.5%). WSS increased number of platelet and fibrinogen amount significantly, and shortened PT and APTT as compared with the control group in thrombus model induced by dextran. Conclusion : WSS is effective antithrombotic activity from experimental result.
