Abstract

For the sake of promoting economic interchange by herbs of South and North Korea, we studies on origin and name of herbs in South and North Korea. At the first, we investigated name and origin of vegetability herbs recorded in the second part of The Korean Pharmacopeia(the fifth revision). Judging from the results of investigation through The Korean Pharmacopeia(the fifth revision) and 9 books studied in North Korea, there is a little difference between South Korea and North Korea in the origin of Crassihizomae Rhizoma, Saussureae Radix, Prunellae Spica, and Schizonepetae Herba. And names of herbs utilzed in North Korea were mentioned by the Korean alphabet Name, these herb names of North Korea differented from herb names of South Korea. Therefore, in our opinion we shoud work the origin and name of herbs in South and North Korea

Objectives : Herbal medicines were used a lot in the Northeast Asia, traditionally. However, the pharmacopoeia standards in South Korea, China, Japan, Taiwan, and North Korea including many other Asia are different and cause confusion. If the origins are not belonging to same genus, it should be careful to distinguish. In this study, herbal medicines in the pharmacopoeia were analyzed for different genus of origins in order to identify the disruptive items for each country. Methods : The scientific names of herbal medicines (plant based) was analyzed origins from Pharmacopoeias of Republic of Korea, People's Republic of China, Japan, Taiwan, and Democratic People's Republic of Korea. The origins specified differently were examined. Especially, the items which have different genus were analyzed in detail and confirmed for correct scientific name. Results : The analyzed herbal medicines in Pharmacopoeia were all 753 items. 320 items were in only one country's Pharmacopoeia. 237 items were in more than two countries' Pharmacopoeia, but their origins were same on each other. The items which have different genus were 35 items. Conclusions : In general, species belonging to the same genus have similar ecological, morphological, and pharmacological activity. However, species with different genus may have different medicinal ingredients and pharmacological activity. Thus, the items which have same name but different genus are required to analyze for comparison of pharmacological activity. Also, other species belonging to the different genus should be used for different items.

Objectives : Herbal medicines have been used a lot traditionally in Northeast Asia. In particular, various Apiaceae plants (Umbelliferae) are widely used for medicinal purposes among countries. However, the original species designated in each pharmacopoeia standards, are sometimes different and confuse. In this study, herbal medicines in the pharmacopoeia were analyzed for Apiaceae taxa to compare the taxonomic identity and different taxonomic opinions for each country based on their local flora and recent taxonomic studies. Methods : The scientific names of herbal medicines were analyzed origins from Pharmacopoeias of Republic of Korea, Democratic People's Republic of Korea, People's Republic of China, Taiwan, and Japan. Especially, we compared their local floras, international plant scientific name database, and recently published taxonomic studies to confirm the correct scientific name. Results : The analyzed apiaceous herbal medicines in pharmacopoeias were all 21 items and 39 taxa; the highest percentage, genus Angelica (21%) and roots including rhizomes (62%) the registered genera and medicinal parts, respectively. Eleven items were in all five country's pharmacopoeias. Four items were in more than two countries' pharmacopoeias. Six items were registered in only one pharmacopoeia. Conclusions : Our research provides necessary information, e.g., corrected scientific names of original species based on taxonomic species concepts, taxonomic reviews, and figures of medicines. These results will help in the understanding of the apiaceous taxa among the five countries' pharmacopoeias. Moreover, these extensive nomenclatural reviews of authentic apiaceous taxa will help for the next revision of Korea Pharmacopoeia. 1)

Herbal medicines have been traditionally used a lot in Northeast Asia, e.g., South and North Korea, China, Japan, and Taiwan. In particular, various rosaceous plants are widely used for medicinal purposes among countries. However, the original rosaceous species, which are registered in pharmacopoeia standards, are sometimes different and confuse. In this study, herbal medicines in the pharmacopoeia were analyzed for Rosaceae taxa in order to compare the identity and different taxonomic opinions for each country. The scientific names of herbal medicines were analyzed origins from pharmacopoeias of Republic and Democratic People's Republic of Korea, People's Republic of China, Japan, Taiwan, and their local floras. Besides, we provide the figures of major medicinal items and voucher specimens by using KIOM and MFDS database. The analyzed rosaceous herbal medicines in pharmacopoeias were all 26 items; the highest percentage, genus Prunus (36%) and fruits (36%) among the registered genera and medicinal parts, respectively. Six items were in all five country's pharmacopoeia. Ten items were in more than two countries' pharmacopoeia. Our research provides valuable, necessary information, e.g., corrected scientific names of original species, taxonomic reviews, figures of medicine, and voucher specimens. These results will help in the understanding of the authentic rosaceous plants among the five countries' pharmacopoeias.
