Objectives : To investigate the effects of DL-HGF to hair growth activity in mouse, various kinds of ethosome and liposome formulations entrapped DL-HGF were produced and this study was carried out. Methods : The B16/BL6 mice were classified into five groups: vehicle control (Con) group, Et-1-applied group, Et-2-applied group, LP-1-applied group, LP-2-applied group. Active hair growth (anagen) was induced in the back skin by application of a waxosin mixture with subsequent depilation and the activity of hair growth was measured by macroscopic observation and histology. Results : In vehicle control group, there was no hair growth activity during experiment period. In Et-1-applied group, the rate of hair growth was about 100%, LP-1-applied group and Et-2-applied group showed 70-80% and 40-50% of hair growth rates, respectively. The rate of hair growth of LP-2-applied group was lower than other applied groups (20-30%). In H/E staining, Numerous hair folicles and hair shafts were observed in Et-1-applied group and other groups showed lower level of hair folicles and hair shafts formation than Et-1-applied group, Conclusion : Et-1 formulation showed highest hair growth activity than other ethosome and liposome formulations entrapped DL-HGF.

The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 22, issue 1, 2009, Pages 11~32
Objective : This study was designed to investigate anti-cancer and whitening activities (LC). So it was investigated the effects of LC on proliferation rates of melanoma genetic profile by LC. Methods : The genetic profile for the effect of LC on human derived melanoma cell, SK-MEL-2, was measured using microarray technique, and the functional analysis on these genes were conducted. Total 441 genes were up-regulated and 830 genes down-regulated in cells treated with LC. Genes induced or suppressed by LC were all mainly concerned with basic signalling pathways, which are involved in cell growth, differentiation and migration. Especially, many genes, which are related in apoptosis and cell cycle arrest were up-regulated by treatment with LC, and genes related in cell cycle were down-regulated. Result : The network of total protein interactions were identified by using cytoscape program, and some key molecules, such as BCL2L1, SIN3A, SMAD2 and c-myc that can be used for elucidation of therapeutical mechanism of medicine in the future. Conclusion : These results suggest possibility of LC as addition drug and whitening cosmetics. In addition, it was also suggested that related mechanisms are involved in BCL2L1, SIN3A, SMAD2 and c-myc related signalling pathways.

The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 22, issue 1, 2009, Pages 33~45
Objective : Lacca Sinic: Exsiccate (LSE) extracted from Rhus vemicitlus Stokes (RVS) has been used traditionally as a remedy for inflammation in Korea, China, and Japan. However, as yet there is no clear explanation of how LSE affects the production of inflammatory cytokines. This study was to determine the effects of LSE on the mast cell-mediated inflammatory responses. Method : We measured the amount of inflammatory cytokine production induced by the phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) plus calcium ionophore(A231S7) in the human mast cell line (HMC-l) incubated with various concentrations of Laces Sinica Exsiccate (LSE). The
, IL-6 and IL-8 secreted protein levels were measured by the ELISA assay. The
, IL-6 and IL-8 mRNA levels were measured by the RT-PCR analysis. Nuclear and cytoplasmic proteins were examined by Western blot analysis. The NF-
promoter activity was examined by a luciferase assay. Result : LSE inhibited the PMA + A231S7-induced
, IL-6, and IL-8 expression and suppressed NF-
activation in the stimulated-HMC-1. In addition, LSE inhibited induction of NF-
promoter-mediated luciferase activity. Conclusion : In this study, we have found that LSE is an inhibitor of NF-
and cytokines on the mast cell-mediated inflammatory responses.

The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 22, issue 1, 2009, Pages 46~61
Background and Objectives : Allergic Contact Dermatitis is the disease affected by industrialization. The more industrialization advanced, the more materials that could induce the allergic contact dermatitis have been increased. Therefore in oriental medicine, various studies have been performed. The objective of this study is to investigate the effects of Naetakchunkeum-san on the Allergic Contact Dermatitis induced by 2,4-dinitro-chlorobezene(DNCB). Meterial and Methods : Twenty eight mice were divided into four groups ; normal, control, experimental group A and B. Control and experimental group were induced allergic contact dermatitis by DNCB. Experimental group A was orally administered the Naetakchunkeum-san and experimental group B was orally administered the prednisolone. In this study, ear thickness measurement, observation auricle microphotograph, Myeloperoxidase(MPO) activity measurement, Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(RT-PCR) analysis of the mRNA level of
were performed on these four groups. In addition, the effect of Naetakchunkeum-san on cell viability and the effect of Naetakchunkeum-san on the compound 48/80-induced histamine release from HMC and RPMC were measured, Results : 1. In contact hypersensitivity assay, experimental group A and B showed decreased ear thickness compared with control group, 2. In experimental group A, pathological lesion of dermatitis were alleviated. In addition, the numbers of infiltrated cells were reduced, and cleft was not shown compared with control group, In experimental group B, similar results were shown. 3. There was a significant increase in MPO activity in control group compared with normal group, Experimental group A and B significantly inhibited the increase in MPO activity compared with control group. 4, The level of expression of
in experimental group A and B were significantly lower than those in control group. As the internal control, cyclophilin mRNA was also reverse-transcribed and amplified. 5, In MTT assay, there were no statistically significant differences in 100
Naetakchunkeum-san treated group from 0
Naetakchunkeum-san treated group as determined by the Tukey test. 6. Naetakchunkeum-san dose-dependently inhibited the compound 48/80-induced histamine release from both HMC and RPMC. Conclusions : According to above experiments, Naetakchunkeum-san may be applied to allergic contact dermatitis.

The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 22, issue 1, 2009, Pages 62~75
Objective : The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of Gamisipjeontang-gamibang(GT) on an experimental bum elicitation. Method : The absorbance of the photo cell mixed with GT at the Abs 560 nm was measured after irradiation for 1 min. In order to know the antioxidant effect on skin cell of mice after burn elicitation, superoxide dismutase(SOD) activity was measured. Also, in order to know effects on the skin regeneration in the burned mice, we counted the eosinophil in blood from animals via cardiac puncture and observed the histological structure in the epidermal basal layer and the dermal section on the 3rd, 7th and 14th day after burn elicitation. We also studied changes in angiogenesis in the capillary surrounding the basal layer and dermal papilla. The changes of HSP70 distribution and changes of p53 positive reaction were observed to investigate the changes of the stress in the skin as well. Result : The results indicated that GT has a significant impact on the antioxidant effect on skin cells of mice after bum elicitation by increasing SOD activity in vitro test. GT seems to decrease MIP-2 which induces neutrophil infiltration and promotes the angiogenesis dose-dependently. Furthermore, GT decreased HSP70, the expression of which was induced by elevated temperatures, and p53 which induce a apoptosis after stress. Conclusion : GT can be applied to burned skin through its antioxidant effect and skin regeneration property.

Back ground and Objective : There is a need for objectification and scientific verification of Pattern identification in Oriental medicine. The purpose of this study was to investigate the skin characteristics of Qi deficiency and Blood deficiency animal models. Material and Methods : Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into three groups: normal group, Qi deficiency group and Blood deficiency group. The Qi deficiency animal model was induced through restriction of food (75g/kg/day) for 20 days. Blood deficiency animal model was induced by bleeding from tail vein(0.3 ml/time) 8 times. The normal animal model was kept without any intervention. The general condition was observed by measuring body weight, body temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate, and hematological and biochemical parameters. The skin characteristics were observed by measuring the erythema index(EI), melanin index(Ml), transepidermal water loss(TEWL) and dermal microcirculation. Results : 1. In the Qi deficiency group, body weight was lower than the other groups. In the Qi deficiency group, blood pressure was lower than in the Normal group. There was no difference in body temperature and pulse rate between the three groups. 2. In the Qi deficiency group, blood sugar was lower than in the Blood deficiency group. There was no difference in triacylglycerol between the three groups. In the Qi deficiency group, the WBC count was lower than in the Blood deficiency group. RBC count was highest in the Qi deficiency group, Normal group and Blood deficiency group respectively. In the Qi deficiency group, Hb and Hct were higher than the other groups. 3. EI and MI were decreased in the Qi deficiency group, and EI showed a significant decrease. 4. EI and MI were increased in the Blood deficiency group, and MI showed a significant increase. 5. TEWL was significantly increased in the Qi deficiency group, while it was decreased in the Blood deficiency group, TEWL was highest in the Qi deficiency group, Normal group and Blood deficiency group respectively and all three groups showed significant difference. 6. In the Qi deficiency group, dermal microcirculation was lower than the other groups. Conclusion : The above results show that the erythema index decreases in the Qi deficiency model, and the melanin index increases in the Blood deficiency model. The Qi deficiency animal model shows an increase in transepidermal water loss, while the Blood deficiency animal model shows a decrease. Further studies should develop new models of Pattern Identification that are more specific.

The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 22, issue 1, 2009, Pages 120~132
Objective : Yukmijihwang-tang is one of the important medicines for blood- deficiency and yin-deficiency. Atopic dermatitis usually shows dampness-heat pattern in its acute stage and blood-deficiency or yin-deficiency pattern in its chronic stage. Therefore, I hypothesized that Yukmijihwang-tang is effective on atopic dermatitis and investigated the effects of Yukmijihwang-tang on NC/Nga mice's atopic dermatitis induced by DNCB. Methods : The NC/Nga mice with atopic dermatitis were divided into four groups: three experimental groups and one control group. The experimental groups were respectively put on 2.5g(YM-2.5), 5g(YM-5) and 10g(YM-10) of Yukmijihwang-tang extract per their weight once a day for 10 days while the control group was fed normal saline. After 10 days, I measured TEWL(transepidermal water loss), observed scratching behaviors, conducted a skin biopsy and checked levels of Total IgE, IL-4 and
on NC/Nga mice. Results : 1. Yukmijihwang-tang significantly suppressed skin dryness. In particular, YM-5 and YM-10 had better skin hydration than YM-2.5. 2. Yukmijihwang-tang significantly suppressed pruritus while there was no significant difference among the experimental groups. 3. Yukmijihwang-tang retained skin structure(epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous fat). 4. Yukmijihwang-tang reduced Total IgE level while there was no significant difference between the control group and the experimental groups. 5. Yukmijihwang-tang did not reduce IL-4(Th2 cytokine) level. 6. Yukmijihwang-tang significantly reduced
(Th1 cytokine) level. In particular, YM-2.5 and YM-5 had lower
level than YM-10. Conclusion : The results suggest that Yukmijihwang-tang suppresses skin dryness and pruritus, retains skin structure and is effective on chronic atopic dermatitis which is associated with Th1 cytokines in the immune response.

Objective : To evaluate autonomic nerve balance and sympathetic nerve activity in patients with inner ear dysfunction as examined by heart rate variability(HRV) Research Methods and Procedures : One hundred and twenty three patients(between 15 to 59 years old) who visited Dept. of Oriental medical Opthalmology & Otolaryngology, Kyunghee university and had an examination of HRV test, were selected as subjects of our study. We checked items of HRV test(such as SDNN, RMSSD, LF, HF, TP, norm-LF, norm-HF, LF/HF ratio), and analyzed time and frequency domain differences between three groups classified as tinnitus, hearing loss and vertigo. And we compared HRV items(such as SDNN,RMSSD, TP and LF/HF ratio) with standard levels. Results and Conclusion : Our results showed no significant differences between three groups in HRV items except for mean heart rate. Patients with inner ear dysfunction showed significant lower TP than 2000
(p <0.001) and significant higher LF/HF ratio than 1.5(p=0.003). So we suggest that patients with inner ear dysfunctions such as tinnitus, vertigo and hearing loss, have sympathetic hypertonus and inactivity of autonomic nerve regulation.

Objective : We investigated the effects of BOM Gunbisoyeom-tang(Jianbixiaoyan-tang) Gamibang having prescribed clinically to patients with perennial allergic rhinitis. Methods : We prescribed BOM Gunbisoyeom-tang(Jianbixiaoyan-tang) Gamibang for 1 month to 77 patients visiting to KimKiJoon Orentalclinic BOM from January 1 to December 31, 2008 with perennial allergic rhinitis and analysised the questionnaire(symptom severity assessment) before and after treatment. Results : BOM Gunbisoyeom-tang(Jianbixiaoyan-tang) Gamibang improved significantly all nosal symptoms(sneezing, runny nose, congestion, itchy nose and postnasal drip), some non-nasal symptoms(eye and throat symptoms, headache and mental function) except chromic cough and ear symptoms and quality of life. Conclusion : BOM Gunbisoyeom-tang(Jianbixiaoyan-tang) Gamibang cured effectively patients with perennial allergic rhinitis by 1 month treatment but not perfectly. So further studies are needed for treatment duration and changes of pathological index before and after treatment.

Objectives : Facial palsy is not uncommon disease and most patients with facial palsy are peripheral type, as in Bell' s palsy. In western medicine, oral steroid is the mainstay of the treatment. Recently, oriental-western treatment became one of the alternative modality for the treatment of the facial palsy. However, the treatment result and the degree of patient' s satisfaction were not evaluated. In this study, we tried to characterize the clinical characteristics, short-term recovery rate and degree of patient' s satisfaction after oriental-western medicine treatment on facial palsy of peripheral type. Methods : Between May 2008 and December 2008, we examined 16 patients who presented with facial palsy of peripheral type in Dongguk University Medical Center. Clinical characteristics and recovery rate was analyzed by retrospective chart review. The degree of patient' s satisfaction was measured by 5 point scale. Results : The causes of facial palsy were Bell' s palsy (87.5%) and the Ramsay-Hunt syndrome (12.5%). The highest age groups of facial palsy were 6th and 7th decades. Most frequent accompanying symptom was postauricular pain. After oriental-western medicine treatment, 10 patients (62.5%) showed recovery of facial palsy better than House-Brackmann grade 2. 11 patients (68.8%) were satisfied with the oriental-western medicine treatment. Conclusions : Considering the degree of patient' s satisfaction and treatment result, we believe that oriental-western treatment could be safe and reliable protocol for the treatment of facial nerve palsy of peripheral type.

Objective : The face is very important for human communication. So facial palsy patients experience not only physical disturbances but also serious emotional stress. Therefore the focus of treatment must be to not only aid the recovery of objective symptoms but also the improvement of subjective quality of life. However there has not been enough Oriental Medical study in this field until now. Thus this study was begun to suggest a useful index for the treatment of facial palsy. Methods : Grade of paralysis, sequelas, and quality of life were used for evaluation. To evaluate Grade of paralysis, House-Brackman Grade was used as the Gross scale and Kim's Grade was used as the Regional scale. Sequelas were evaluated by muscle contraction, synkinesis, NA, and grade of philtrum tilt. Quality of life was evaluated by SF-36v2, Facial Disability Index, and Vas. Results & Conclusion : 1. The change of grade of paralysis between the early and the present time reveals remarkable improvement statistically. 2. There was a remarkable improvement in all parts of quality of life except several areas of SF-36(RP, RE, MH, VT) 3. In only PF(Physical Function) of FDI, quality of life increased remarkably according to the improvement of grade of paralysis. 4. There is the positive relationship among Kim's grade, HB grade and Synkinesis 2. 5. Synkinesis among sequelas has the greatest effect on quality of life. And muscle contraction, change of NA, and grade of philtrum tilt also affect quality to some extent. 6. There was no remarkable relationship between the period of illness and change of quality of life. 7. Change of NA is shown after 3 months of illness and synkinesis becomes worse after 6 months of illness.

Objective : to investigate the modalities and treatments with atopic dermatitis. Methods : We made up a questionnaire consisting of symptoms, birth, family history, previous treatments of atopic dermatitis. We interviewed mild to severe 60 atopic dermatitis patients with questionnaire, from August to October, 2008 who were participating in clinical trials of Kyunghee University East-west neo medical center. Results : The results obtained are summarized as follows: 1. 49(81.7%) out of 60 patients reported previous or current use of medical treatment, and most common type of medical treatment was topical corticosteroid (95.9%). Oral antihistamine (61.2%), oral corticosteroid (61.2%) were also commonly used. 2. 31(51.7%) out of 60 patients reported previous or current use of oriental medical treatment, and most common type of oriental medical treatment was herbal medicine(100%). Acupuncture (41.9%), Herbal external supplements (22.6%) were also used. 3. 36(60.11% ) out of 60 patients reported previous or current use of folk remedies, and the most common type of folk remedy was extract of tree(Mokcho-ak)(75.0%). Aloe(61.1%), Charcoal(22.2%) were also commonly used. Conclusion : It seems the frequency of folk remedies used were related to severity of AD. However, there were no significant difference between medical treatment and oriental medical treatment.

Background : Recently the number of atopic dermatitis patients has increased, but the treatment of atopic dermatitis is not effective, and the recurrence rate of atopic dermatitis is high. Many patients are suffering from pruritus. A new standard treatment system is needed. Objective : This study investigated the effect of Oriental medicine program for atopic dermatitis patients during short term hospitalization. Method : 6 patients were admitted for short term hospitalization program. The program includes Acupuncture, herbal medicine, examination, education, cupping therapy, herbal dressing, exercise and etc. Everyday we evaluated the patients by Severity Scoring Atopic Dermatitis(SCORAD) index and took the photos of lesions, and the patients evaluated themselves by atopic dermatitis diary which consists of emotion, pruritus, sleep loss. Results : Admission duration was 7 to 14 days. The SCORAD scores of them were decreased. Most symptoms of 6 patients were improved. Especially herbal dressing was effective for severe oozing. Subjective scores of atopic dermatitis diary were reduced. Conclusion : We expect that the short term hospitalization program could be helpful for uncontrollable atopic dermatitis patients.
