Background & Objective :
Jichul-hwan(JCH) has been used for the treatment of functional dyspepsia, regarded as a gastric dysmotility disease. We investigated the effects of JCH on gastric motility and its mechanisms of action in rats.

Methods :
The gastric wall was injured by tracting a part of stomach body in rats. Gastric emptying was measured after administration of normal saline(NS) or JCH in normal rats and gastric wall injured rats. To evaluate the mechanism of JCH under delayed gastric emptying conditions, normal rats were treated with atropine sulfate(1mg/kg, s.c.), quinpirole HCl(0.3mg/kgg, i.p.), NAME(NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester, 75mg/kg s.c.) and cisplatin(10mg/kg, i.p.). The gastric slow waves were measured for 30 minutes before and after administration of each solution(NS, JCH).

JCH 110.1mg/kg improved gastric emptying for 2 hrs(p=0.014). JCH 110.1mg/kg improved gastric emptying in the gastric wall injured rats(p=0.001). Under the delayed gastric emptying, JCH 110.1mg/kg improved gastric emptying in the group treated with atropine sulfate(1.83±0.96 vs 8.43±8.46, p=0.003), but aggravated it with quinpirole HCl(4.7±2.9 vs 1.61±2.09, p=0.021). Administration JCH 110.1mg/kg increased EGG power in rats.

JCH stimulates gastric motility through the cholinergic pathway, so we expect that it would be effective in the treatment of dysmotility-like functional dyspepsia with low activity of vagus nerve.
Key words: Jichul-hwan, Gastric motility, Gastric wall injury, Rat.
