  • Objectives : The objective of the review was to research related to Bangpungtongseong-san(Bofutsusho-san) in oriental medicine in South Korea. Methods : Oriental medicine advanced searching integrated system(OASIS), 4 Korean medical databases and 5 Korean medical journals were searched by using search terms as Bangpungtongseong-san or Bofutsusho-san. In order to see detail review, we classified all the searched studies into types, methods, purposes, outcome measures and main conclusions. Results : We found out total thirty one studies. There were seventeen experimental studies, four clinical studies, seven case reports and three literature reviews. The main thesis were related to metabolic syndrome, including obesity, hyperlipidemia and hypertension, etc. The studies about the safety and toxicity concluded Bangpungtongseong-san did not seem to affect toxicity. In the outcome measure, body mass index, serum biochemical analysis, cell study, abdominal computed tomography(CT) and bioelectrical impedance analysis were used. Conclusions : To improve more objective and continuous research in oriental medicine, further rigorous clinical trials using herbal medicines should be performed.

  • Objectives These prescribing recommendations have been written to guide clinicians on the appropriate use of Bangpungtongseong-san(BT) and Bangkihwangki-tang(BH) in the treatment of obesity. These recommendation are aimed at providing evidence based information concerning diagnosis and management of obesity. Methods We collected all relevant references about treatment effect of BT and BH on obesity in the forms of meta-analysis, systematic review, randomized controlled trial, case-control study, observational study and practice guideline from international and domestic databases and paper journals. We examined treatment effect, side effects, recommendations for dose, indication and contraindication of BT and BH. Results The treatment effect of BT and BH on obesity has been proved through clinical trial. BT is indicated for obese patients (Body mass index, $BMI{\geq}25$) with strong abdomen and a tendency to constipation, BH is indicated for obese patients ($BMI{\geq}25$) with a fair skinned, soft muscled, edematous and sweat easily. Conclusion We wish the information contained in theses recommendations will help clinicians reach a reasonable and beneficial decision with evidence-based results. Further studies are strongly needed to develop better treatment strategies for herbal medicines on obesity.

Efficacy and Adverse Events of Bangpungtongseong-san(Bofutsusho-san) and Bangkihwangki-tang(Boiogiot-tang) by Oriental Obesity Pattern Identification on Obese Subjects : Randomized, Double Blind, Placebo-controlled Trial (비만 환자에서 한방 비만 변증에 따른 방풍통성산과 방기황기탕의 치료효과 및 부작용 비교 : 무작위 배정, 이중 맹검, 위약-대조군 임상시험)

  • Objectives : This trial were conducted to evaluate the efficacy and adverse events of Bofutsusho-san(BTS) and Boiogiot-tang(BOT) by oriental obesity pattern identification on obese subjects, as compared to placebo. Methods : 166 subjects(body mass index ${\geq}25kg/m^2$) were recruited and randomized to receive BT(n=55), FH(n=55) or placebo(n=56) for 8 weeks. Anthropometric factors, serum lipid, glucose, blood pressure(BP), pulse rate, resting metabolic rate and oriental obesity pattern identification questionnaire were measured at baseline and 8 weeks. Adverse events and safety outcome variables were also checked during trials. Results : The frequency of top-scored oriental obesity pattern was ordered by indigestion(食積) > stagnation of the liver qi(肝鬱) > yang deficiency(陽虛) > spleen deficiency(脾虛) > phlegm(痰飮) > blood stasis(瘀血) in subjects. BTS group significantly decreased body weight, body mass index(BMI), waist circumference(WC), body fat mass, total cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol in stagnation of the liver qi(肝鬱) and WC in indigestion(食積). BOT group showed significant decrease of body weight, BMI, WC, and body fat mass in indigestion(食積) not in deficiency(虛症). Adverse events were reported most frequently in yang deficiency(陽虛) by BT group and stagnation of the liver qi(肝鬱) by BOT group. Conclusions : Bofu-tsusho-san was effective in treating obesity with stagnation of the liver qi(肝鬱). Obesity pattern identification could be a useful diagnostic tool predicting treatment effects and adverse events.
