Ginseng (the root of Panax ginseng CA Meyer, family Araliacease), which is used in Korea, China and Japan as a herbal medicine, was fermented with Ganoderma lucidum (GL) and their antiallergic effects were investigated. Of GLs used for fermentation, KCTC 6283 potently produced ginsenoside Rh2, followed by KFRI M101. KCTC 6532, and ginsenoside Rd, followed by KFRI M101. Oral administration of these fermented ginseng extracts inhibited allergic reactions, passive cutaneous anaphylaxis reaction… Expand

Inhibitory Effect of Fermented Red Ginseng against Passive Cutaneous Anaphylaxis Reaction and Scratching behaviors in Mice
FRG can improve allergic skin disorders atopic dermatitis by the regulation of TNF-α, and IL-4 produced by mast cells and basophils and its degranulation and the inhibitory effect of FRG against PCA reaction and scratching behaviors are measured. Expand
Fermentation, a feasible strategy for enhancing bioactivity of herbal medicines
The subject of fermentation of herbal preparations has been maturing and gaining considerable attention of scientific and technical communities worldwide with emphasis on understanding the contribution of fermentation-derived bioactive substances to therapies against a number of diseases. Expand
Oral Administration of KTNG0345 Prepared from Red Ginseng Extracts Reduces UVB-induced Skin Wrinkle Formation in Hairless Mice
It is demonstrated that orally administered KTNG0345 has anti-wrinkling effects in hairless mouse skin, and suggested that dietary red ginseng and herbal mixture may be considered a functional beauty food for preventing UVB-induced skin wrinkles. Expand
Effects of Non-saponin Red Ginseng Components on the Function of Brain Cells
Treatment of brain cells with NSRG results in the enhancement of proliferation, the suppression of NO production and the protective effect on NCAM expression impaired by ACR, suggesting that NSRG has proliferative and neuroprotective effects and these effects could be useful in neuronal diseases.

Beneficial effects of the burdock ferment liquid on diabetic disorders in STZ-induced diabetic rats
The present study was undertaken to characterize the effects of the burdock (Arctium lappa L.) ferment liquid (BFL) on diabetic disorders employing streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats (STZ-diabeticExpand
The Influence of Fermentation by Different Lactobacillus on the Free Radical Scavenging Activity of Burdock and Variations of Its Active Components
Burdock (Arctium lappa L.) is a nutritious plant which is commonly cultivated in Taiwan and Japan. The purpose of this study is to explore the effect of fermentation by different lactobacillus on theExpand


Antiallergic activity of ginseng and its ginsenosides.
The results suggest that the antiallergic action of compound K originates from its cell membrane stabilizing activity and that the ginsenosides of ginseng are prodrugs with extensive anti-allergic properties. Expand
In vivo antimetastatic action of ginseng protopanaxadiol saponins is based on their intestinal bacterial metabolites after oral administration.
The present study demonstrated in vivo and in vitro antimetastatic activities of a major intestinal bacterial metabolite M1 formed from protopanaxadiol saponins of ginseng in comparison with its whole standardized extract and ginsenoside Rb1, Rb2, and Rc. Expand
Anti-tumor and immunoregulatory activities of Ganoderma lucidum and its possible mechanisms.
Preliminary study indicated that antiangiogenic effect may be involved antitumor activity of G lucidum. Expand
Review : Herbal Medicines Are Activated by Intestinal Microflora
Glycosides of herbal medicines, such as glycyrrhizin, ginsenosides, kalopanaxsaponins, rutin and ponicirin, were studied regrading their metabolic fates and pharmacological actions in relation to intestinal bacterial using germ-free, gnotobiotic and conventional animals to suggest that glycoside of herbal medicine are prodrugs.

Transformation of Ginsenosides to compound K(IH-901) by Lactic Acid Bacteria of Human Intestine
It is suggested that, if ginseng with these mixed bifidobacteria is fermented, compound K-enforced ginsENG materials could be produced that show cytotoxicity against tumor cell lines. Expand
Role of human intestinal Prevotella oris in hydrolyzing ginseng saponins.
The results suggest that the metabolism of protopanaxadiol saponins to metabolites I-III in the intestines seems most partly due to intestinal P. oris isolates. Expand
Chemical Studies on the Oriental Plant Drugs. XXVIII. Saponins and Sapogenins of Ginseng : Stereochemistry of the Sapogenin of Ginsenosides-Rb1, -Rb2 and -Rc
The sapogenin of Ginseng saponins, ginsenosides-Rb1, -Rb2 and -Rc, was once reported to be protopanaxadiol (III). But it was found recently that dammarane type triperpenes with hydroxyl or methoxylExpand
Antitumor activity of a novel ginseng saponin metabolite in human pulmonary adenocarcinoma cells resistant to cisplatin.
The results suggest that IH-901 is not cross-resistant to CDDP in this cell line and could be a candidate for the treatment of CDDP resistant pulmonary cancer. Expand
Appearance of compound K, a major metabolite of ginsenoside Rb1 by intestinal bacteria, in rat plasma after oral administration--measurement of compound K by enzyme immunoassay.
Plasma C-K after the oral administration of C- K and G-Rb1 to rats was determined by the established EIA and appeared late and was retained for a long period of time in the plasma after the administration of G- Rb1, which itself is hardly absorbed. Expand
Inhibitory effect of tumor metastasis in mice by saponins, ginsenoside-Rb2, 20(R)- and 20(S)-ginsenoside-Rg3, of red ginseng.
It is suggested that both ginseng saponins, 20(R)- and 20(S)-ginsenoside-Rg3, possess an ability to inhibit the lung metastasis of tumor cells, and the mechanism of their antimetastatic effect is related to inhibition of the adhesion and invasion of tumor Cells, and also to anti-angiogenesis activity.
