Characteristics of the acupuncture point in producing acupuncture analgesia (AA) were examined by the inhibition of noxious responses in the brain stem reticular formation, potentials, and neuronal activity in the dorsal periaqueductal central gray (D-PAG), and analgesia caused by low frequency stimulation of the acupuncture point. As a result, stimulation(More)
Acupuncture analgesia (AA), caused by low-frequency stimulation of an acupuncture point (AP)--in this case the tibial muscle--was augmented. Nonacupuncture analgesia (NAA), caused under certain circumstances by stimulation of a nonacupuncture point (NAP)--in this case the abdominal muscle--was unmasked by lesion in the lateral centromedian nucleus of the(More)
Bisdemethoxycurcumin (BDMC) is a demethoxy derivative of curcumin. In this study, a human gastric adeno-carcinoma xenograft model was generated in vivo using nude mice and BDMC was observed to suppress the growth and activity of tumors, in addition to improving the physical and mental capacity of the mice. An increased number of apoptotic cells, decreased(More)
Antiserum of methionine-enkephalin (Met-Enk) applied intrathecally abolished acupuncture analgesia (AA) caused by low frequency stimulation of an acupuncture point (tibial muscle, APS) of rats, but antisera of leucine-enkephalin (Leu-Enk) and dynorphin (Dyn) did not. Antiserum of Dyn applied intrathecally abolished analgesia (NAA) produced by stimulation of(More)
