The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 22, issue 3, 2008, Pages 1~15
Objectives : This study was designed to evaluate completely the relationship between obesity and Qui Xue Shui diagnostic procedure in primary and middle school students. Methods : The study participants were the 1, 2nd grade students of middle school and 5, 6th grade students of primary school in Kang dong Gu of Seoul (1134 Students). The participants were measured for their height and weight etc, and they were also surveyed by questionnaire. We diagnosed the students as when they scored 10 points or behind on Qui Xue Shui(QXS) question problems from Japan education academy. Results and Conclusions : The mean QXS score in the obese group was significantly higher than that of the normal body weight group and the obeser they are, the higher QXS score is. The Qi xu, Qi yu, Xue xu, Shui chi score of the QXS questions the obese group was higher than the normal group. The total QXS score was significantly higher in the obese group. It is shown that the total score of using the Qui Xue Shui diagnostic procedure is mainly dependent on obesity.

The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 22, issue 3, 2008, Pages 35~62
Objectives : This study has been carried out to look into the methods of early treatment of cerebral palsy and the treatment effect by ages. Methods : The fifteen theses dealing with treatment effects by ages were analyzed, which were selected from the 121 theses retrieved out of the wu-ruan(五軟), wu-chi(五遲), wu-ying(五硬), naotan(腦癱), naoxing-tanhuan(腦性癱癱), during the period between the January 2004 to August 2008 by using the China Academic Journal(CAJ) of China National Knowledge Infrastructure(CNKI). Results : 1. Among the study objects in the 15 theses, it was identified that there were 1.97 times more boys with cerebral palsy than that of girls, and it appeared that there was no significant relationship between gender and the treatment. 2. The early treatment referred to the treatment which was carried out based on the early diagnosis within 6 months to one year after the birth. This is the time when the adaptability and plasticity of the brain are high, and it was found out that the treatment effective as babies are young. 3. For the treatment of cerebral palsy, the combination of Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine Therapy was more frequently used than the exclusive Chinese medical treatment method, and it was more effective. Especially in the case, the Chinese medical treatment was focused on the acupuncture and the Tuina Massage. Conclusions : 1. For the treatment of cerebral palsy, when the age between one and two years old was established as the standard. The younger the babies were, the higher treatment effects were obtained. 2. It appeared that the early treatment of oriental medicine had relatively excellent effects on cerebral palsy, but it turned out that we needed more studies for accurate results.

Effect of Gupoongjeseuptang (GPJST) on DNCB (dinitrochlorobenzene)-induced Atopic Dermatitis-like Model NC/Nga Mice
Yoon, Jae-Eun ; Kim, Yun-Hee ; Han, Jae-Kyung ; Kim, Yun-Hee ;
The Journal of Pediatrics of Korean Medicine, volume 22, issue 3, 2008, Pages 105~137
Objectives : The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of Gupoongjeseuptang (GPJST) on atopic dermatitis by in vivo experiment using NC/Nga atopic dermatitis mouse, which has histological and clinical similarities to the atopic dermatitis of human. Methods : To investigate the effect of GPJST on atopic dermatifis, we evaluated atopic dermatitis-like skin lesions by clinical skin index and analyzed immunological parameters in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), splenocytes, draining lymph node (DLN) and performed skin histology in ears and dorsal skin of atopic dermatitis-like skin NC/Nga mouse in vivo. Results : In vivo, clinical skin severity score were significantly lower in GPJST group than control group. IgE, IL-6,
, IgG1, IgM, IgG2a and IgG2b levels in serum decreased remarkably in GPJST group than control group. Also, total absolute number of
cells recovered as normal in PBMCs and
decreased significantly compared with control group in isolated DLN from NC/Nga mouse and total absolute number of
in dorsal skin of NC/Nga mouse decreased by GPJST. We analyzed ear and neck-back skin after biopsy and dyeing by hematoxyline/eosin (H&E) and toluidine staining (mast cells marker) and obtained results that GPJST are very effective to histological symptoms (dermal and epidermal thickening, hyperkeratosis and inflammatory cell (CD4,
) infiltration). Conclusions : This study demonstrates immunological activity of GPJST on atopic dermatitis-like model mice.
