Daejeon, South Korea

Korea Research Institute of Bioscience and Biotechnology is a government research institute located in Daejeon, South Korea. It is dedicated to biotechnology research across a broad span of expertise, from basic studies for the fundamental understanding of life phenomena to applied studies such as drug discovery, novel biomaterials, integrated biotechnology and bioinformation.KRIBB was established in 1985. Its accomplishments include the advancement of welfare and medical technology, an increase in food production, a cleaner environment and new bio-materials and energy sources.It has identified reasons for the failure of animal cloning, conducted a comparative study of chimpanzee genes and successfully analyzed the structure of the reactive oxygen species switch protein, which became the first study by Korean scholars to be published in Cell, an international scientific journal. The institute was ranked first in the discovery of new microorganisms, including the indigenous microorganisms of the Dokdo Islets, for four consecutive years.Its recent accomplishments include the development of a genome capable of controlling cancer cell proliferation and the identification of an neuropeptide Y-based growth control mechanism, with possibilites for new treatments for cancer, diabetes, obesity and ageing. Nano–bio sensor research led to the development of the world's smallest surface plasmon resonance biochip. Wikipedia.

The present invention relates to inventive novel industrialized method for preparing purified extract containing more abundant active ingredients such as catalpol derivatives from the extract of Pseudolysimachion rotundum var subintegrum than that prepared by the conventional preparation method disclosed in the prior art and the therapeutics or functional health food comprising the purified extract for treating and preventing inflammatory, allergic or asthmatic disease. The purified extract showed more potent anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy and anti-asthma activity than that prepared by the conventional preparation method disclosed in the prior art through various in vivo tests such as inhibition test on the reproduction of eosinophil, the release of immunoglobulin and inflammatory chemokines in plasma and bronchoalveolar fluid as well as the suppression of airway hyperresponsiveness and goblet cell hyperplasia in a OVA-sensitized/challenged mouse model.

The present invention relates to a composition for suppressing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) comprising a Pistacia weinmannifolia extract, a fraction thereof, or a compound isolated therefrom and, more particularly, to a pharmaceutical composition for preventing or treating COPD comprising a Pistacia weinmannifolia extract, a fraction thereof, or a compound isolated therefrom; a food composition for preventing or improving COPD, and the compound isolated therefrom. The composition comprising a Pistacia weinmannifolia extract, a fraction thereof, or a compound isolated therefrom, according to the present invention, is not toxic, suppresses the invasion of inflammatory cells into the bronchial tube of a COPD-induced animal model, and effectively suppresses the expression of CXCL-1, TNF-, or MIP-2. In addition, due to the use of a safety-proven herbal drug as a raw material, the composition of the present invention can resolve various side-effects of existing therapeutic agents for COPD, chronic obstructive bronchitis, chronic bronchiolitis, emphysema, multiple sclerosis, and acute and chronic inflammation, and thus can be effectively used as a composition for preventing, treating and remedying COPD.
