Purpose: Osteoporosis that occurred after menopause is one of the most common metabolic disease. and it is that bone mass significant decrease in comparison with normal people. Its symptoms are fracture, decrease of height, etc. The purpose of this study is to examine what are the effects of the Gamisoyosan on the aged ovariectomized rat model of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Methods: 24 female rats were ovariectomized and divided into normal group(normal), ovariectomized group(control), and treated with Gamisoyosan group(treated). During 8 weeks we dosed D.W to sham and control group, and dosed Gamisoyosan(105 mg/100 g) to experimental group. After 8 weeks we sacrificed rats and measured the body weight, albumin, P, Calcium, ALP, total cholesterol, triglyceride, AST, ALT, T4, estradiol, the femur weight, the tibia ash weight, trabecular bone area, trabecular thickness, osteoclast number. Results: The level of serum albumin, calcium, AST, ALT, estradiol in Gamisoyosan group showed significant increase in comparison with control group. The level of serum triglyceride in Gamisoyosan group showed significant decrease in comparison with control group. Trabecular bone area and osteoclast number in Gamisoyosan group showed significant increase in comparison with control group. Conclusions: Reviewing these experimental results, Gamisoyosan has shown to activate osteogenesis and prevent bone resorption, and it should show efficacy on prevention and improvement of osteoporosis after menopause.

Seo, Yun-Jung ; Kim, Song-Baeg ; Cho, Han-Baek ; Choe, Chang-Min ; Lee, Soon-Yee ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 39~54
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the anti-inflammatory effects of the water extract of Omisodokeum (OMSDE) on peritoneal macrophages, Methods: To verify the anti-inflammatory mechanism of OMSDE, the activation of nuclear
and the phosphorylation of MAPK were examined. Results: The extract of OMSDE suppressed the production of LPS-induced nitric oxide (NO), tumor necrosis factor
, IL-6 and IL-12 in the macrophages. OMSDE inhibited the degradation of inhibitory
and it suppressed the activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK 1/2) but didn't inhibit c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) and p38, indicating that OMSDE may inhibit the pro-inflammatory cytokine production process by inhibiting the activation of
and ERK 1/2. Furthermore, OMSDE inhibited the production of interferon
but didn't inhibit of
in the LPS-stimulated macrophages through the down-regulation of interferon regulatory factor (IRF)-1 and IRF-7. The Oral administration of OMSDE inhibited LPS-induced endotoxin shock and the production of
in serum but didn't inhibit of
and IL-6. Conclusion: These results suggest that OMSDE may be effective in the prevention and treatment of inflammatory diseases.

The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 55~82
Purpose: In this study, we evaluated anti-inflammatory activity and anti-thrombosis effect of Manbunbang(MBB) prescribed to chronic PID patients. Methods: We studied inhibitory effect of platelet aggregation, suppression effect of GPIIb/IIIa activity and inhibitory effect of
biosynthesis which were caused by ADP, epinephrine, collagen and arachidonic acid in vitro. And suppression of pulmonary embolism, changes of related factors in dextran coagulation condition model and anti-oxidative effect of oxidative damage were studied in vivo. Results: MBB extract showed LD50 of
or higher in mouse lung fibroblast cells, and significantly decreased the GPT and GPT level in dextran coagulation condition model compared to the control. MBB extract showed dose-dependent inhibition effect on platelet coagulation induced by ADP, epinephrine, collagen, arachidonic acid. MBB extract showed dose-dependent inhibition effect on GPIIb/IIIa activities compared to the control. MBB extract significantly suppressed TXB2 and PGE2 biosynthesis compared to the control. MBB extract suppressed pulmonary embolism triggered by collagen and epinephrine by 37.5% compared to the control. MBB extract significantly suppressed the decrease of speed of bloodstream caused by blood coagulation in dextran coagulation condition model compared to the control. Concluson : The results strongly suggest the anti-inflammatory activity of Manbunbang through anti-thrombus. Various applications using Manbunbang on inflammatory diseases are anticipated. Anti-oxidative efficacy comparison data between the Manbunbang prescription and the drug compositions may be used as important clinical information, and further investigation of anti-oxidative activities of Chrysanthemum indicum and Rhemaniae Radix should be followed.

Kim, Dong-Il ;
The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 134~149
Purpose: Dysmenorrhea is a common gynecologic condition among reproductive-age women. It consisted with menstrual clamps and other symptoms such as nausea. vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue. Pain control for this disease mainly through NASIDs. but recently CAM therapies, acupuncture and others for painful menstruation are widely used in western countries. But RCT articles about dysmenorrhea in Korea, are not enough to lead such global research trends. The purpose of this study is to review treatment method and other research tendency about dysmenorrhea in Korean Medicine(KM) related dominant journals. Methods: Searching was done through web site and directly searched dysmenorrhea related articles in journals of Korean medicine Gynecology, published during 1996-2007. Results: Twenty five articles were searched in KM related journals, then two of them were simple case report and ten were paper of clinical trials. But there no RCT or control group-designed study. All of them present positive effect on dysmenorrhea but drop out rates were relatively high. Conclusion: KM therapies including acupuncture and herbal medicine have some beneficial effect to resolve menstrual cramps, but KM therapy related Korean articles don't have strong objective power as a evidence in the viewpoint of EBM. So continuous clinical trials such as RCT and multi center trials are needed.

The Journal of Oriental Obstetrics and Gynecology, volume 21, issue 1, 2008, Pages 206~215
Purpose: After abortion, many women could have psychologic problems and physical symptoms. But in Korea, the symptoms and psychologic problems and after abortion had rarely been researched. Methods: The subjects were 29 women who visited Kangnam Korean hospital for postabortion management from May 2007 to December 2007. From questionnaire, we researched the variable symptoms after abortion and depression as Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale. Results: The 79% of patients took a rest only less than 1 week after abortion. As the rest time was shorter, the number of symptoms was higher. The frequent symptoms were related to the dysfunction of autonomic nerve system and the circulating system. The patients after abortion had high Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale scores, the mean score was
. The high EPDS scores and the number of symptoms was related with methods of abortion and age. Conclusions: Postabortal symptoms are related with physical symptoms and depression. So psychological evaluation would be needed. And for prevention of postabortal symptoms, the adequate rest time would be demanded after abortion.

Purpose: The purpose of this study is to analysis on the Stress Response Inventory(SRI) and Heart Rate Variability (HRV) of some dysmenorrhoea patients. Methods: We studied 34 patients visiting OO Medical Center from May 2007 to November 2007. And the severity of dysmenorrhoea were measured by Multidimensional Verbal Rating scale(MVRS), Verbal Rating scale (VRS) and Visual Analog Scale(VAS). And SRI and HRV were recorded. Results: According to comparison of Means of HRV values among the groups, most of them were not statistically significant. But the comparison of Means of SRI, the points of almost all values were kept by order of Severe-Moderate-Mild-None group. Most of them are statistically significant. According to correlation analysis between dysmenorrhoea scale and HRV, most of them were not statistically significant. But the correlation analysis between HRV and SRI, there were some correlations. And the correlation analysis between SRI and dysmenorrhoea scale, most of them were statistically significant. According to General Linear Model of Dysmenorrhoea
and HRV. Dysmenorrhoea scale and SRI influenced values of HRV. But it is hard to conclude the relationship between Dysmenorrhoea
and HRV Conclusion: The results suggest that stress is related to dysmenorrhoea. But the relation between dysmenorrhoea and HRV was hard to conclude. We need more study for settling the relation between dysmenorrhoea and HRV.

Purpose: These experiments were undertaken to evaluate the effect of Onpoeum on ovarian functions and differential gene expressions related with cell viabilities caspase-3, MAPK and MPG in female mice. Methods: We administered the Onpoeum to 6-week-old female ICR mice for 4, 8, or 12 days. With different concentration of Onpoeum, the female mice were injected PMSG and hCG for ovarian hyperstimulation. The mice divided into 3 different groups for each experiment. We chose the Caspase-3 for cell apoptosis, MAPK and MPG genes for cell viability and DNA repair. Results: In case of 4, 8, 12 day of Onpoeum, we were examined the mean number of total ovulated oocytes and the number of morphologically normal oocytes. We were also examined the embryonic developmental competence in vitro. In addition we were examined the differential expression of cell apoptosis, viability and DNA repair related genes, Caspase-3, MAPK and MPG according to concentration and duration of Onpoeum. From these results showed that the administration of Onpoeum played a role of prevention of cell apoptosis and DNA damages and also increased cell proliferation resulted in ovarian functions. Conclusions: It is suggested that the medication of Onpoeum may have beneficial effect on reproductive functions of female mice via prevention of cell apoptosis and DNA damaging and promotion of cell proliferation.
