Chinese Name (pinyin): Shouwuteng

Chinese Name  :

Common Name  :Tuber Fleeceflower Stem

Specific Name  : Caulis polygoni multiflori

Scientific Name:
Collection  : The drug is collected in autumn and winter, removed from the remained leaf, bundled up and dried.

Description  : Long cylindrical, slightly twisted, branched varying in length, 4-7mm in diameter. Externally purplish-brown, rough with twisted longitudinal wrinkles. Nodes slightly swollen with scars of lateral branches. The outer bark thin and easily stripped. Texture fragile, easily broken, fracture bark purplish red, wood yellowish-white or pale brown, vessels pits distinct, pith lax and whitish, odourless, taste slightly bitter and astringent.

Identification  : 1.Transverse section: Epidermal cells sometimes remained. Cork consisting of 3-4 rows of cells containing brown pigment. Cortex relatively narrow. Fibre bundles in pericycle ringed intermittently, walls of fibers heavilyu thickened and lignified, group of stone cells occasionally existing among bundles. Phloem relatively wide, cambium ringed, vessels in xylen subrounded up to 204µm in diameter, singly scattered or several aggregated. Pith relatively small, parenchymatous cells containing clusters of calcium oxalate.2.To 0.25g of powder add 50ml of ethanol, heat under reflux on a water bath for 1 hour, filter and concentrate the filtrate to 3ml, use as the test solution. Prepare a solution of Caulis Polygoni Multiflori reference drug in the same manner as the reference drug solution. Carry out the method for thin layer chromatography (Appendix Vl B) using silica gel H containing sodium carboxymethylcellose as the coating substance and benzene-ethanol (2:1) as the mobile phase. Apply in the strips separately to the plate 2µl of each of the three solutions. After developing and removal of the plate, dry it in the air and then using benzene-ethanol (4:1) as the mobile phase, after developing in a chamber pre-saturated for 15 minutes and removal of the plate, dry it in the air and examinize under ultra violet light (365nm). The fluorecent strips in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution correspond in the position and colour to the strip in the chromatogram obtained with the reference drug and reference solution.

Processing  : eliminate foreign matter, wash clean, cut into sections and dry in the sun.

Action  : To nourish blood, to induce tranquilization, to dispel wind, and to remove obstruction of channels and collaterals.

Indication  : insomnia, dream-disturbed sleep; general aching in blood deficiency; rheumatic arthralgia external: pruritus

Precautions  :

Dosage  : 9 to 15 g; for external use, appropriate quantity to be decocted for washing.

Storage  : Preserve in a dry place.

Chinese Name  :

Common Name  :Fleece-flower Root

Specific Name  : Radix polygoni multiflori

Scientific Name:
Collection  : The drug is collected in autumn and winter when leaves wither, removed from two ends, washed clean and the large one cut into pieces and then dried.

Description  : Mass or irregular fusiform. 6 - 15 cm long. 4 - 12 cm in diameter. Externally reddish brown, shrunken and uneven, shallowly grooved with transverse elongated lenticels and fine rootlet scars. Texture heavy, compact uneasily broken, fracture pale yellowish brown or reddish brown, starchy, bark exhibiting 4 - 112 subrounded rings of abnormal vascular bundles, forming brocaded pattern. Wood in central part relatively large. Some having a woody core. Odourless taste bitterish, sweetish and astringent.

Identification  : 1.Transverse section: Cork consisting of several layers of cells filled with brown contents. Phloem relatively broad, scattered with 4 - 11 subrounded abnormal vascular bundles of collateral type, vessels rare. In the central part of a root cambium in a ring, vessels in xylem less, subrounded by some tracheids and a few xylem fibres. Parenchymatous cells containing starch granules and clusters of calcium oxalate. 10 - 160 µm in diameterPowder: Yellowish brown, simple starch granules subrounded. 4 - 50 µm in diameter, hilum V-shaped, stellate or Y-shaped, striations of large ones fairly distinct. Compound granules of 2 - 9 components. Clusters of calcium oxalate 10 - 80 - 160 µm in diameter and clusters joined with prisms occasionally found. Brown cells subrounded or elliptical, walls slightly thickened. Lumina filled with yellowish brown, brown or reddish brown contents and containing starch granules, bordered pitted vessels, 17 - 178 µm in diameter. Brown masses scattered, varying in shape size and color.2.To 0.25 g of the powder add 50 ml of ethanol, heat under reflux on a water Bath for 1 hour and filter. Concentrate the filtrate to 3 ml, use as the test solution. Prepare a solution of Radix Polygoni Multiflori reference drug in the same manner as a reference drug solution. Carry out the method for thin layer chromatogaphy (Appendix Vl B) Using silica gel H containing sodium carboxymethylcellulose as the coating substance and benzene ethanol (2:1) as the mobile phase. Apply separately to the plate 2 µl of each of the two solutions in strips. After developing about 3.5 cm from the base line and removal of the plate, dry it in the air. Develop again using bezene dehydrate ethanol (4:11) as the second mobile phase. After developing at a distance of about 7 cm, removal of the plate, dry it in the air.. Examine under ultra violet light (365 nm). The fluorescence strips in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution correspond in position and colour to the strips in the chromatogram obtained with the reference drug solution. Then spray with phosphommolybdic acid solution in sulfuric acid (dissolve 2 g phosphommolybdic acid in 20 ml of water, add 30 ml of nitric acid slowly and mix well) and gently heat.. Examine immediately under ultra violet light (365 nm) and sun light. The strips in the chromatogram obtained with the test solution correspond in position and colour to the strips in the chromatogram obtained with the reference drug solution.

Processing  : Eliminate foreign matter, wash, macerate, soften thoroughly, cut into thick slices or pieces and dry.

Action  : To counteract toxicity, to cure carbuncles, and to relax bowels.

Indication  : lymphadenitis, carbuncles, urticaria with itching; constipation; hyperlipimia

Precautions  :

Dosage  : 6 to 12 g.

Storage  : Preserve in a dry place, protected from moth.
