ABSTRACT
Object:
This study investigates Jaeumganghwa-tang(JGT) has been used for the purpose of prevention and treatment of allergic inflammatory diseases. This study was to investigate the biological effects of JGT.

Methods :
Cytotoxcicity and inflammatory cytokines secretion with human mast cells(HMC-1) were examined. HMC-1 cells were stimulated with phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) and calcium ionophore A23187. JGT by itself had no effect on cytotoxicity of HMC-1. The effects of JGT on the secretion of tumor necrosis factor-alpha(TNF-α) and interleukin(IL)-6 from HMC-1 were evaluated with enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay(ELISA).

Result:
It was found that JGT inhibited PMA plus A23187-induced TNF-αand IL-6 secretion. JGT also inhibited the NF-¥OE B(p50) expression.

Conclusion:
These results suggest that JGT inhibits the secretion of inflammatory cytokines in HMC-1 cells through blockade of NF-¥OEB activation. Taken together, these effects support a role for JGT as a therapeutic agent in treatment of allergic inflammatory diseases such as asthma.
Key words: Jaeumganghwa-tang(JGT), human mast cells(HMC-1), TNF-α, NF-¥OEB
