Abstract :

Pyungwi-san (PWS), Traditional Korean Medicine, has been used for the treatment of gastrointestinal diseases such as acute gastritis, gastric atony, anorexia, abdominal distension. PWS composed with 6 herbs, Atractylodis Rhizoma, Citri unshius Pericarpium, Glycyrrhizae Radix et Rhizoma, Magnoliae Cortex, Zingiberis Rhizoma, and Zizyphi Fructus. In this study, we tested that the anti-inflammatory effects of PWS, which was standardized by 7 components; glycyrrizic acid, rutin, liquiritin, isoliquiritin apioside, hesperidin, atractylenolide III, and honokiol from HPLC finger print analysis. PWS was administrated from 218 mg/kg to 3,270 mg/kg orally and then LPS (5mg/kg) was injected intraperitoneally to each rats after 1 hour. Animals were sacrificed after 5 hours to measure inflammatory cytokines in plasma by ELISA. LPS induced the production of inflammatory cytokines such as TNF-?±, IL-1, IL-6, and PGE2 in plasma. However, PWS inhibited the production of TNF-?±, IL-1, IL-6, and PGE2 following dose-dependence. Pretreatment of PWS prevented the inflammatory response in the HCl/ ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury rat model, too. These results indicate that this standardized-PWS exerts potent antiinflammatory activity against the acute gastritis by LPS and HCl/ethanol.
