Objectives Diagnosis System of Oriental Medicine (DSOM) was made as a computerized assistant program for oriental medicine doctors to be able to diagnose with statistical basis. Then DSOM uses questionnaires filled out by respondents with explanatory guide. But if the respondents misunderstand the meaning of the passages, the results were quite the opposite. Methods This study was designed to investigate the diagnostic correspondent rates between DSOM and TKM practitioners. First, let the respondents answer to DSOM. After that, three doctors diagnosed the respondents and marked 'p' when they diagnose that the respondent had the pathogenic factors, marked 'n' when they diagnose that the respondent had the pathogenic factors but not severs, and did not marked when they diagnose that the respondent didn't have the pathogenic factors. Finally, this study was investigated the correspondent rates of diagnosis between DSOM and doctors. Results In the pathogenic factor of three including insufficiency of Yin (陰虛), the correspondent rates were 90%. In the pathogenic factor of nine including deficiency of qi (氣虛), the correspondent rates were 80%. In the pathogenic factor of four including blood stasis (血瘀), the correspondent rates were 70%. In HH and HL, they showed the correspondent rates of 61.77%. The correspondent rate of heat (熱) was highest (96.88%). The correspondent rate of insufficiency of Yang (陽虛) was lowest (0%). In LH and LL, they showed the correspondent rates of 88.31%. The correspondent rate of blood stasis (血瘀) was lowest (71.76%). They all showed the correspondent rates of over 70%. Conclusions In DSOM and Doctors' diagnose, they showed the correspondent rates of 83.60%.

Objectives This study is performed to recognize the relationship between atrophic vaginitis and stress that have an affect on autonomic nervous system. Methods We studied 47 patients who visited Kangnam Kyunghee Korean Hospital Medical Examination Center from November, 2013 to June, 2014. They were devided into two groups, atrophic vaginitis group (AV, n=18) and non-atrophic vaginitis group (NAV, n=29). We compared the result of HRV between the two groups. Results The mean of The standard deviation of NN intervals (SDNN), the square root of the mean squared difference of successive NNs (RMSSD) in AV group was lower than NAV group, but there was no significant difference between the two groups. Total power (TP), low frequency (LF) and very low frequency (VLF) of AV group was significantly lower than NAV group. There was no significant difference in high frequency (HF). Conclusions Women with atrophic vaginitis is expected to have low adaptive capacity against stress.

DOI : 10.15204/jkobgy.2015.28.3.021
Objectives This study aimed to investigate therapeutic effect of Korean Medicine Steam Therapy (KMST) for leukorrhea patients. Methods From December 1st 2013 to Nov 31st 2014, 16 leukorrhea outpatients treated with KMST filled out questionnaire before and after treatments. The questionnaire was composed of 8 question items such as sleep, appetite & digestion, urination, defecation, emotion, cold hypersensitivity, menstrual pain, leukorrhea and patients were told to evaluate their symptoms as NRS score. We analyzed mean NRS score of each question item before and after KMST by using Wilcoxon's signed rank test of SPSS ver. 19. Results Mean age of participants was 40.8±13.0 years and mean value of treatment numbers per person was 3.8±1.8 times. 43.75% (n=7) of the patients had history of vaginitis caused by gardnella vaginalis, ureaplasma urealyticum or candida albicans. All patients were treated with acupuncture, moxibustion and Korean medicine. In addition, there was no side effect reported by participants. NRS score of quantity, odor of leukorrhea, perineal unpleasant sensation such as itching, dryness, burning sensation remarkably decreased (p<0.01, p<0.05, p<0.01 each). NRS score of symptoms including sleep, urination, cold hypersensitivity, menstrual pain also remarkably decreased (p<0.05). Conclusions Symptoms of leukorrhea patients including sleep, urination, cold hypersensitivity, menstrual pain, leukorrhea showed significant decrease after treated with concurrent KMST.

Objectives This study aims to analyze Heart Rate Variability (HRV) in women after missed abortion compared with healthy women Methods We studied 35 women who visited Kang-Nam Kyung-Hee Korean Hospital after missed abortion from 01 January 2012 to 28 February 2015 (missed abortion group) and 35 normal women visiting medical examination center from 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2014 (Normal Group). We measured HRV of each women and investigated the difference of HRV between two groups. Results The standard deviation of NN intervals (SDNN) in Missed abortion group is lower than normal group. The square root of the mean square difference of successive NNs (RMSSD) in Missed abortion group is lower than normal group. However there was no significant difference. Total Power (TP) and Low frequency power (LF) is significantly lower in Missed abortion group compared with normal group. High frequency power (HF), Very low frequency power (VLF) and LF/HF ratio in missed abortion group is lower than normal group. but There was no significant difference. Conclusions Missed abortion group is lower in function of overall autonomic nervous system, especially sympathetic nerve.

Objectives The object of this study was to evaluate the effect of Yikgeebohyul-tang aqueous extracts (YKBHT) on the propylthiouracil (PTU)-induced rat hypothyroidism. Methods The rats were divided into 6 groups : intact vehicle control, PTU control, LT4, YKBHT 500, 250 and 125 mg/kg treated groups. Hypothyroidism was induced by daily subcutaneous treatment of PTU 10 mg/kg for 28 days. YKBHT aqueous extracts were administered once a day as an oral dose of 500, 250 and 125 mg/kg for 42 days. The changes were observed : weight of body, thyroid gland, liver, testis, epididymis and prostate, serum thyroid hormone levels, serum male sex hormone levels, serum lipid profiles, liver and testis antioxidant system. These results were compared with LT4 0.5 mg/kg intraperitoneally treated rats. Results These PTU induced hypothyroidism and related hepatic and male reproductive organ damages were favorably and dose-dependently inhibited by treatment of YKBHT 500, 250 and 125 mg/kg, and YKBHT also effectively regulated the PTU-induced abnormal antioxidant defense factor changes in the both liver and testis. Although, LT4 also inhibited PTU-induced hypothyroidism and relative liver damages. But it deteriorated the hypothyroidism related testis, epididymis and prostate damages through testicular oxidative damages. Conclusions : The result of this study suggests that YKBHT has favorable effects on the hypothyroidism and related liver and reproductive organ damages with augmentation of antioxidant defense factor in the testis and liver. YKBHT 500, 250 and 125 mg/kg dose-dependently inhibited PTU-induced hypothyroidism and related liver and male reproductive organ damages in rats.

Objectives To identify whether Sovereign-Minister-Assistant-Courier (君臣佐使) Theory and Meridian Tropism (歸經) Theory of oral herbal medicine can be applied to trans-dermal medicine and whether pharmaceutical efficacy can be delivered to skin by Courier herb (使藥). Methods We reviewed previous studies related to Sovereign-Minister-Assistant-Courier Theory. And we examined whether prescription compositions based on Sovereign-Minister-Assistant-Courier Theory correspond with efficacy results of trans-dermal medicine experimentally identified. Results When Sovereign-Minister-Assistant-Courier Theory is applied to trans-dermal medicine, Courier herb act as delivering the effective components to the lesion penetrating skin barrier. And we identified that medicine absorbed through the digestive processes may not correspond with Courier herb applied topically. Conclusions We identified that Courier herb act as delivering the effective components to the lesion. But to strength evidences, additional studies on this action will be needed.
