ABSTRACT

Objectives We have studied to know effects of Bangkeehwangkee-tang on the monosodium iodoacetate (MIA) induced osteoarthritis in rats. Methods Osteoarthritis was induced by injection of monosodium iodoacetate into knee joint cavity of rats. Rats are devided into 4 groups; Sham, control, Bangkeehwangkee-tang , Shinbaro. Sham group was injected by normal saline into knee joint cavity only. Control group was taken no treatment and Experimental groups were taken extracts of Bangkeehwangkee- tang and Shinbaro by orally once a day for 4 weeks. The content of TNF-α, IL- 1β and IL-6 in synovial fluids were analysed. COX-2 in chondrocytes and blood PGE2 concentration were analysed. Histopathological examination was performed by Safranin-O fast green staining and Mankins score checking. Results The content of TNF-α, IL-1β in experimental groups were decreased compared with control group. COX-2 in chondrocytes and blood PGE2 concentration in experimental groups were decreased compared with control group. Histopathologically, osteoarthritic scores of experimental groups were decreased compared with control group. But the content of IL-6 in synovial fluids was not significantly compared with control group. Conclusions According to these results, it can be suggested that Bangkeehwangkeetang has anti-arthritic effects on the MIA induced osteoarthritis in rats.
