    Abstract
    Objectives : This study was designed to examine the effects of Noni on anti-inflammatory and antifebrile effects in rats' carrageenan-induced arthritis. Methods and Materials : 1. Each of 10 rats was divided into a normal, control, and sample group for the experiment conducted to test the anti-inflammatory, and the anti-febrile activity. 2. Noni was administered orally to the sample group and normal saline was administered to the normal and the control group. 3. Arthritis was induced by injecting 0.1ml of 1% carrageenan per rat and Noni was administered after 30 minutes, 24 hours and 48 hours from injection. 4. The change of edema in carrageenan-induced arthritic rat's paw was measured after 1 hour, 5 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours from injection of carrageenan with Plethysmometer(7150,UGO BASILE, Italy) by method of Winter. 5.The temperature was measured with Telethermometer after 1 hour, 5 hours, 24 hours and 48 hours from injection of carrageenan on the rat's paw and the rectum. Results : 1.In the sample group, the rate of increase of paw edema was decreased as compared with that of control group but not significant. 2.In the sample group, CRP, LDH and SGOT were effectively controlled compared with those of the control group, and WBC was decreased and SGPT was increased compared with those of the control group but not significant. 3.In the sample group, the temperature after 1 hours on the paw and the rectum was decreased effectively compared with the control group, but the temperature after 5, 24 and 48 hours on the paw and the rectum were not decreased effectively compared with the control group. Conclusions : These results suggest that Noni have a curative effect on anti-inflammatory effect in rats with Carrageenan-induced arthritis, but we have to study deep into antifebrile effect hereafter.

    Review of Post Traumatic Stree Disorder(PTSD) Symptoms in Traffic Accident Patients

    김현우 | Hojun Kim | Keum Dong-ho and 2other persons | 2006, 16(1) | pp.35~47 | number of Cited : 13
    Abstract
    Objectives : The aim of this study is to make an investigation into post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD) appearing during rehabilitation medical treatment in traffic accident patients, and to refer to the concept of oriental medicine from Dongyibaojian(東醫寶鑑). Methods : This study has investigated the psychiatric and biopsyic states appearing during rehabilitation medical treatment regulate through various papers, expressions and data about post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD) symtoms in traffic accident patients, classifed for various lengths of time and realize the concept of oriental medicine from Dongyibaojian(東醫寶鑑) because of applying for objection comparing with modern medical science. Results and Conclusions : In traffic accident patients, there are apt to appear not only traumas but also psychiatric and biopsyic symptoms. We may diagnose it one of the post traumatic stress disorder(PTSD). Directly after traffic accidents, the psychiatric symptoms in patients appear depressing, unrest, irritability, driving fear, anger, sleeplessness, headache, etc. but during rehabilitation medical treatment, the psychiatric symptoms in patients increase depressing, unrest. In comparison with he concept of oriental medicine, directly after traffic accidents, the psychiatric symptoms in patients are expressed sudden jingji(驚悸), surprised xindanxuqiebushui(心膽虛怯不睡), during rehabilitation medical treatment, the psychiatric symptoms in patients are expressed Tuoying(脫營), Qiyu(氣鬱).

    Effect of Electroacupuncture by Differnt Insertion Method on Upper Limb Function in Post Stroke Patients with Hemiplgia

    류한진 | Kim Sung-Soo | 2006, 16(1) | pp.49~61 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract
    Objectives : This study is performed to investigate the efficacy difference according insertion methods of electroacupuncture on hemiplegic patients after stroke. Methods : Twenty eight stroke patients with hemiplegia were randomized into two groups. Thirteen patients were treated by electroacupuncture with obliquely acupunctured on the surface of fascia in affected side(sample group). The other 15 patients were treated by electroacupuncture with vertically acupunctured in the muscle which is generally used(control group). The study was performed for 4 weeks. In the both group, the frequency of stimulation was 2Hz and intensity was setting at sufficient grade to include muscle contraction. Outcome were assessed by Motor Grade, Fugl-Meyer score and Modified Barthel index. Results : The sample group showed significantly more improvement than the control group in Motor grade of shoulder abduction(P =0.047), Fugl-Meyer score of upper limb(P =0.043). Conclusions : These results support that Electroacupuncture which stimulated on the fascia is more effective than into the muscle on upper limb function recovery in poststroke hemiplegic patients.
