The standard that can be used to classify the academic schools of Korean Oriental Medicine is first of all, identical theory; secondly, similar trend in compiling medical text; and thirdly, having the same individual body of theory. In this paper, based on these three criterion, the lines have been divided into 15 academic schools.

  • "HanGaekChiHeom" is a book that arranged the medical records left by a Japanese doctor Junso Higuchi who treated a group of diplomats from Chosun and questions and answers exchanged between him and Chosun's doctor ChoSoongSoo. There are 14 kinds of medical records here with treatments and prescriptions as well as the detailed descriptions about the name, age and symptoms of patients. Various diseases and symptoms are included among them such as bums, common cold, skin diseases, edemas, etc. The characteristics of Junso Higuchi seem to be affected by medicine in Ming Dynasty in China.

  • Traditional medical knowledge and its biological resources, including Korean Medicine, has regarded as an important object of intellectual property rights. International organizations have been discussed and implemented various treaties on how to exercise and protect the property rights of traditional medicines. In Korea, the governmental policies and the academic societies have endeavored to establish the protection method and academic foundations of Korean Medicine's intellectual properties. This study will examine the current situation of discussions in major international organizations and Korean governmental policies related to the protection of traditional medical intellectual properties. Furthermore, this paper will contemplate the possible arguments and countermeasures to protect the traditional knowledge of Korean Medicine. We hope that this study will contribute to find the reasonable and effective ways of protection of Korean Medicine's intellectual property rights.

  • Objective : We present reference values of flow velocities of intracranial and extracranial cerebral arteries and relation with change factor. Method : We checked transcranial Doppler ultrasonography on mean velocity, systolic velocity, pulsatility index, and resistance index of 252 patients. We also compared differences of change factor. Result : The result showed a difference by sex and age and relevance between vessels besides mean velocity of vessels related with past history and social history. Conclusion : According to the above results, females showed higher velocity of all vessels. With advancing age, subjects showed reduction in velocity and increase in pulsatility index and resistance index. Anterior cerebral, middle cerebral, and posterior cerebral artery increased in proportion to velocity of internal carotid artery and basilar artery. Vessel velocity correlated with diabetes mellitus, hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

  • This paper is focused on the 'contents' of database level medical texts sponsored by the Chinese government. The premise of the study is that the contents of state-sponsored medical texts would show how medical policy makers and practitioners approached the body and diseases of the time, and by association the medical text would reveal the policy associated with state medical education and distribution of medical resources associated with the practitioners' approaches. This paper analyzes the contents of four representative state-sponsored medical texts: Cao's Treatise on the Origins and Symptoms of Various Diseases (巢氏諸病源候論, 610, Sui China); Great Peace and Sagely Benevolence Formulas (太平聖惠方, 996, Song China); Complete Record of Sagely Benevolence (聖濟總錄, 1117, Song China); Formulas for Universal Relief (普濟方, 1406, Ming China).

  • In this study we investigated the effect of medical history on the incidence of stroke in Korean population. 217 stroke patients were enrolled as a case group. 160 non-stroke patients and 146 normal and non-stroke patients were enrolled as a control and a normal group, respectively, from Jul. 2005 to Mar. 2007. Stroke patients were hospitalized within 2 weeks after the onset of stroke. Medical history was gathered by interviewing each patient. Clinical data were analyzed using SAS software (ver 9.1). Hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) were statistically significant in a case group when compared with control and normal groups. Other parameters, such as transient ischemic attack, hyperlipidemia, ischemic heart disease, facial palsy, migraine, and hypochondria, did not show any statistical significance. The same association pattern was observed in the ischemic stroke patients of case group. On the other hand, hemorrhagic stroke patients of case group showed a significant difference in DM when compared with other subject groups. More efficient therapeutic strategy should be considered for patients with medical history, especially hypertensin and DM, to reduce the stroke incidence in Korean population.

Inquiry on the Philosophical Concepts of 의림촬요 Focusing on the Practical Application of '否' 卦 ('부(否)' 괘(卦)의 활용을 중심으로 본 『의림촬요(醫林撮要)』 속의 역학사상(易學思想) - 『의학정전(醫學正傳)』과의 비교를 중심으로)

  • Correlations between "The Book of Changes" and medicine originate from the first publication of the book. Korean Traditional Medicine is no exception in following this tendency of making connections between the two fields. A Chinese medical text, "의학정전" is the most frequently cited text in a Korean medical text "Euirimchalyo". Upon examining the two texts focusing on the 종창, 임폐문 that discusses 비괘, it could be seen that Euirimchalyo edited out the philosophical contents of 의학정전 as much as possible. Thus, on examination of the text, it can be concluded that 의림촬요 takes no part in the Korean history of medical philosophy. This indicates that 의림촬요 is a medical text that purses practicality and efficiency though selectively summarizing.

  • The researcher categorized the acupuncture methods mentioned in DongUiBoGam according to the form, and examined how to select and use the acupuncture points explained in the Acupuncture/Moxibustion prescription. By comparing the original text to the Acupuncture/Moxibustion prescriptions, it was established that the various acupuncture points in these Acupuncture/Moxibustion prescriptions all had individual meaning. Also, it showed that DongUiBoGam didn't indicate a particular acupuncture point but allowed a possibility for selection according to the patient's condition and the skill of the practitioner.
