Keywords Egg Yolk Antibody(IgY) against Bee Venom; IgY; Anti body of Bee venom; Korean Bee Venom Therapy
Author(s) Hwang, Tae-Jun; Lee, Seung-Bae; Gwon, Gi-Rok
  Abstract This study was carried out for production of neutral antibody to bee venom . Hen layings were injected repeatedly with bee venom and phospholipase with Freund's adjuvant. Specific antibody in egg yolk from immunized hen laying was separated, and purified, also immunological characteristics of anti phospholipase was invested. The results were summarized as follows: 1. Phospholipase was showed single band at molecular weight 17,000 in SDS-PAGE and bee venom was showed two band at molecular weight 17,000 and under molecular weight 6,500 in SDS-PAGE. 2. During 70 days after hen immunized with bee venom and phospholipase , antibodies(anti-bee venom IgY) to bee venom were showed poor ELISA value in egg yolk, but antibodies to phospholipase in egg yolk were increased ELISA value from 8 days or 15 days and found maximum ELISA value at 42 days. Also after booster at 49 days, ELISA value of anti Phospholipase in egg yolk was supported at optical density(O.D) 1.0 level, continuously. 3. Titer of phospholipase was showed 1: 32,000. 4. In double immunodiffusion test to phospholipase after double dilution of anti-phospholipase , only precipitation line was made in 1:1 dilution well of anti-Phospholipase . But In immunodiffusion test to anti-phospholipase after double dilution of phospholipase , Precipitation line to 250ul/ml well of phospholipase was showed. In double immunodiffusion test to bee venom(1mg/ml) after double dilution anti-phospholipase , all well without 1:32 dilution well were showed strong precipitation line. 5. In dot bloting test to anti-phospholipase after diluting bee venom(0.5mg/ml), dot bloting color was showed clearly to in bee venom.

Method & Results : This patient was medicated Hwallaktang-gami, taken acupuncture, phototherapy, TENS, electric acupuncture, exercises, Mori Cortex-bee venom acupuncture. As a result, the patient's clinical symptom were improved but a computed tomagraphy confirmed L4/5 and L5/S1 HNP was not changed as seen on repeated CT scanning. Conclusion : These results suggest that among conservative therapies the oriental medical treatments including Mori Cortex-bee venom acupuncture improve clinical symptom effectively. But in this case, the structure of herniated disc was not changed.

Author(s) Kang, Kye-Sung; Kwon, Gi-Rok
  Abstract Objectives : Through the literatures on the effets of Bufonis Venenum, we are finding out the clinical possibility and revealing the more effective to intractable diseases. Methods : We investigated the literatures of Oriental Medicine and experimental reports about Bufonis Venenum. Results : 1. Bufonis Venenum is made of bufonidae bufo bufo gargarizans cantor or bufo melanostictus schneider of white serum which secreted from parotid gland or dermato gland, and it is dried for using. 2. In oriental medicine, Bufonis Venenum has been mainly used on the tumors, cacanthrax and dermatic disease, and then it has been clinically used on infantile athrepsia, tetanus, sore throat, toothache, and so on. 3. The pharmacological effects of Bufonis Venenum are cardiotonic, respiration stimulation, depressor or vasopressor, topical anesthcsia, hallucination, striped muscle stimulation, antiasthmatic, antibacterial, antiinflammatory, anticancer, diuretic, immuno effects, etc. 4. Bufonis Venenum is largely divided in ether binding steroid compound, hydroxyl steroid compound, carboxyl or aldehyde steroid compound, indole compound, and adrenaline, cholesterole, etc. 5. Symptoms of Bufonis Venenum poisoning in digestive system are vommitig, abdominal pain, diarrhea, dehydration, in circulatory system are palpitation, shock, bradycardia, in nervous system are vertigo, somnolentia, muscle-tendon reflex weakness, and critical conditions to tissue necrosis and heart attack. 6.

Author(s) Kim, Hong-Soo; Song, Choon-Ho
  Abstract This study was undertaken to determine whether Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi (SbG) extract exerts the protective effect against -induced alterations in membrane transport function in rabbit renal cortical slices. The slices were treated with 0.1 mM for 60 min at . caused an inhibition in PAH uptake by renal cortical slices. Such an effect was accompanied by depressed -ATPase activity and ATP depletion. SbG prevented -induced inhibition of PAH uptake in a dose-dependent manner at the concentration ranges of 0.01-0.1%. -induced inhibition of -ATPase activity and ATP depletion were significantly prevented by 0.05% SbG. These results suggest that SbG prevents -induced alterations in membrane transport function in rabbit renal cortical slices. Such protective effects of SbG may be attributed to inhibition of peroxidation of membrane lipid.

  Abstract Background : Central poststroke pain(CPSP) can occur as a result of lesion or dysfunction of the brain from stroke and may cause many difficulty in the social activities and daily life. In this study, we evaluate the clinical effectiveness of east-west medical management for CPSP through VAS(visual analogue scale), infrared themography, MBI(Moderfied Barthel Index) and Rankin scale. Methods : We treated thirty patients with oriental medical treatment method and western & oriental medical treatment method. Each group has fifteen patients of the CPSP. We evaluated their pain(characterizes tingling and burning sensation, aching, hyperalgesia, and allodynia) through VAS(visual analog scale) pain score, the skin temperature of pain site by infrared thermography and assessed their mobility & rehabilitation ability through MBI(Moderfied Barthel Index), Rankin scale before and after pain treatment. Results : The skin temperature of pain site was lower than non-pain site. The difference of skin temperature improved from to after oriental medical treatment and to after western & oriental medical treatment VAS scores improved from to after oriental medical treatment and to after western & oriental medical treatment. MBI scores improved from to after oriental medical treatment and to after western & oriental medical treatment. And Rankin scale scores improved from to after oriental medical treatment and to after western & oriental medical treatment Conclusion : The difference of skin temperature and Rankin scale scores more significantly improved after western & oriental medical treatment than oriental medical treatment. According to the results, we thought east-west medical management is very useful treatment for CPSP and rehabilitation of the patients with stroke

  Abstract In Oriental Medicine, mononeuropathy belongs to or . Common peroneal neuropathy(CPN) is the most frequently encountered mononeuropathy in the lower extremity. It is usually caused by direct surgery injury, compression, leg crossing, trauma, traction etc, occasionally by nerve tumor. A 47-year-old healthy man was complained of the sudden development of left foot drop and sensory manifestation owing to suspected compression and habitual leg-crossing. Acupuncture along with bee-venom acupuncture, moxibustion was performed mainly at Stomach and Gallbladder Meridian specially ST36, ST37, ST40, GB34 and GB39. Nerve conduction study and electromyography was also performed three times. Symtoms was relieved fast, and full recovery took about 110 days. Acupuncture and bee-venom acupuncture are considered to be beneficial to CPN. More clinical trials and studies are needed.
