BACKGROUND Demyelination is one of the most important pathological factors of spinal cord injury. Oligodendrocyte apoptosis is involved in triggering demyelination. However, fewer reports on pathological changes and mechanism of demyelination have been presented from compressed spinal cord injury (CSCI). The relative effect of oligodendrocyte apoptosis on(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on the expression of suppressor of cytokine signaling 3 (SOCS-3) and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-gamma genes in the epididymis adipose tissue of obesity rats so as to explore its mechanism underlying weight reduction. METHODS SD rats were randomized into normal control,(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of different intensities of electroacupuncture (EA) on adipose tissue inflammatory cytokines in rats with simple obesity so as to investigate its mechanism underlying body weight reduction. METHODS Forty SD male rats were randomly divided into normal, model, strong EA and weak EA groups (n = 10/group). Obesity model was(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) of "Zusanli" (ST 36), "Hegu" (LI 4) and/or "Sanyinjiao" (SP 6) on immune functions in gastric carcinoma rats after operation. METHODS Wistar rats were randomly divided into normal control, ST36, L14, SP6, ST36 + LI4, ST36 + SP6, LI4 + SP6, ST36 + LI4 + SP6, non-acupoint (about 10 mm lateral to ST36)(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of acupuncture stimulation of scalp- and body-acupoints on limb function in subacute stroke patients. METHODS A total of 110 stroke inpatients were randomly and equally divided into acupuncture group and control group. Patients of the acupuncture group were treated by acupuncture stimulation of scalp acupoint Dingnie(More)
The present study was aimed to investigate the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on learning-memory of rats with low estrogen-induced cognitive impairment and the possible mechanism. The rat model was established by ovariectomy, which resulted in low estrogen-induced cognitive impairment. EA was applied continuously for 3 months 2 weeks after ovariectomy.(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of electroacupunctrue on ERp57 in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) rats, and study the therapeutic mechanism of electroacupunctrue in patients with NAFLD. METHODS Sixty male SD rats were randomly divided into common diet group (n = 15) and high-fat diet group (n = 45). 5 weeks later, two rats from the two(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the effect and mechanism of electroacupuncture(EA)combined with treadmill training in rats with skeletal muscle contusion. METHODS A total of sixty Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into normal,model, EA, treadmill, and combination groups (n=12/group). The self-made striking device was used to establish skeletal muscle contusion(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupunctrue (EA) intervention or EA combined with dietary control on peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-α, and liver fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) levels in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) rats, so as to reveal its mechanism underlying improvement of NAFLD. METHODS Sixty SD male rats(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture(EA) stimulation at "Fenglong"(ST 40) on expression of sterol regulatory element binding protein-1 c(SREBP-1 c) in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease(NAFLD) rats, so as to reveal its mechanism underlying improving NAFLD. METHODS Male SD rats were randomly divided into normal diet group, high-fat diet(More)
