Abstract
Objectives
The purpose of this study was to evaluate quality of reporting of intervention studies on Sasang Constitutional diet (SCD) based on the Consolidated Standards for Reporting of Trials (CONSORT) and Transparent Reporting of Evaluations with Nonrandomized Designs (TREND) statements.

Methods
We searched for Randomized controlled trials (RCT) and Non randomized studies for intervention (NRSI) on SCD in 4 databases and other sources, selected them by the inclusion criteria, and then evaluated quality of reporting of them.

Results
1. A total of 10 studies (1 RCT and 9 NRSI) from 1999 to 2006 were selected and evaluated. The detailed items of up to 78%, at least 40%, and median value of 59% in the CONSORT and TREND statements were not reported.
2. One RCT was reporting 4 (11%) sufficiently, and 4 (11%) insufficiently among the 37 detailed items in the CONSORT statement while it was not reporting 29 (78%) items.
3. Nine NRSI were reporting 7 (12%) items sufficiently, and 2 (3%) items insufficiently among the 58 detailed items in the TREND statement while they were not reporting 15 (26%) items. Twenty (34%) items in the TREND statement were reported in some papers but not in more than half.

Conclusions
The quality of reporting of intervention studies on SCD has been assessed to be generally low. Subsequent researchers are recommended to select an appropriate statement for research design, and use it as a checklist from the time of designing the study to the time of reporting.
