The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 28, issue 2, 2015, Pages 1~12
DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2015.28.2.001
Objective : The goal of this study is to identify the effects of extract ofGentianae sino-ornata(GSO) on the anti-oxidative activity of skin.For this purpose, several functions of GSO were analyzed in terms of skin-lightening activity and wrinkle improvement. Methods : Cell viability was measured by neutral red (NR) assay, and GSO showed highly efficacy in DPPH radical scavenging activity. The level of tyrosinase and matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) in media was analyzed by ELISA kit, and the expressions of p-JNK and p-ERK was measured by Western blot. To elucidate inhibitory effects of GSO on melanin synthesis, I determined the tyrosinase activity and melanin production in B16F10 cells. Results : MMP-1 production in UVB-stimulated HDF cells was inhibited by GSO treatments, and also GSO inhibited protein expression levels of p-JNK and p-ERK. GSO significantly reduced tyrosinase activity and melanin synthesis in B16F10 cells. Conclusions : From these results, GSO appears to be effective on skin elasticity increase, wrinkle improvement, whitening as anti-aging activity.

DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2015.28.2.013
Objective : To investigate how general characteristics and life habits of patients affect severity of acne which was determined by Korean Acne Grading system(KAGS). To adress correlation between the severity of acne and subjective stresses from which patients suffer. Methods : 86 patients answered to questionaire sheet on their general characteristics and life habits and rated their level of stresses as a number in the range between 0 and 10. Then an oriental medical doctor evaluated subject`s acne grades, based of KAGS, through observations on papules, nodules, and scars before (medical) treatments. All data (collected) were analyzed using SPSS 22 (software for windows). To clearly demonstrate association of subjects general characteristics, life habits with KAGS grades, Chi-square tests were performed. The correlation between the KAGS grades and the level of stresses was determined using one-way ANOVA followed by Scheffe`s post-hoc analysis. Results & Conclusion : Majority of subjects were women, students between 15 and 25 years old, and patients with normal range of Body Mass Index(BMI). Dysmenorrhea presence and premenstrual exacerbation of acne had statistically significant relationship, suggesting their potential influences on KAGS grades as major factors.

In Wind-Heat pattern(WHP, 風熱型), inflammatory lesion of acne was the most important symptom. Oily skin, nodule and effect of menstruation are the most important symptoms in Dampness-Heat pattern(DHP, 濕熱型), Phlegm-Stasis pattern(PSP, 痰瘀型) and Disharmony of the thoroughfare and conception vessels pattern(DTCVP, 衝任不調型) each. Conclusions : The results might provide backgrounds and methods for clinical care of acne and follow-up study.
