The screening of 150 Chinese drugs which are most frequently prescribed in Korean traditional medicine showed that at least 30% of the drugs affected barbiturate-induced hypnosis.

Phytochemical works resulted in the isolation of furanocoumarins, lignans, sesquiterpenes and saponins as drug metabolism modifiers. The structure-activity relationship is discussed.
