OBJECTIVE To explore the experimental method of obtaining position emission tonogiaphy (PET) imaging evidence of changes in cerebral function by puncturing the Stomach 36 (ST36, Zusanli) acupoint. METHODS Data on changes of cerebral glycometabolism were obtained from six healthy male volunteers with positron emission tomography. Visual experimental(More)
BACKGROUND It is considered that the pathogenesis is closely related to an excessive production of pro-inflammatory cytokines caused by bacterial toxins and an imbalance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators. MATERIALS AND METHODS This work investigates the effect of electro-acupuncturing (EA), at Zusanli point (ST36) on plasma cytokine(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of electro-acupuncture on obestatin in rat with simple obesity. METHODS Obesity was induced in male SD rats with high-fat and -glucose diet for 10 weeks. Twenty-four rats with obesity were randomly divided into untreated group and electro-acupuncture group, with 12 rats in each group. Another 12 normal SD rats serving(More)
This study investigated the protective effect and mechanism of electroacupuncture at ST36 points on the intestinal barrier dysfunction and remote organ injury after intestinal ischemia and reperfusion injury in rats. Rats were subjected to gut ischemia for 30 min, and then received electroacupuncture for 30 min with or without abdominal vagotomy or(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protection effects of electroacupuncture on injury of lipid peroxidation induced by liver ischemia in septic rats. METHODS Forty-eight male SD rats were subjected to sepsis induced by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP), and were randomly divided into a Sham operation group (group A), a CLP model group (group B), a CLP model(More)
We observed the inhibitive effect of electroacupuncture (EA) at Zusanli on inflammatory mediators of postoperative intra-abdominal adhesions to find out the relationship between EA and the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway. Sixty-four rats were divided into 8 groups (A-H, each = 8): A = sham control; B = abdominal adhesions model; C = abdominal(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the therapeutic effect and mechanism of electroacupuncture (EA) in treating gastrointestinal disorder in acute pancreatitis (AP) patients. METHODS A total of 94 cases of AP patients were divided into acupuncture group (n=56) and control group (n=38). The severity of AP was evaluated according to APACHE II and Balthazar CT scoring(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of electroacupuncture at ST36 (EA ST36) on gastric emptying and mucosal blood flow during intragastric resuscitation with pyruvate-enriched oral rehydration solution (Pyr-ORS) in scalded rats. METHODS The rats were subjected to a 35% total body surface area (TBSA) of scald injury and randomly divided(More)
The goal of this study was to determine whether a combination of shear wave elastography (SWE) quantitative parameters could improve the accuracy of ultrasonography in the differentiation of benign and malignant breast lesions. Two hundred seventy-nine breast lesions in 251 women were evaluated with ultrasonography and SWE; pathologic results of all lesions(More)
AIM To investigate whether electroacupuncture ST36 activates enteric glial cells, and alleviates gut inflammation and barrier dysfunction following hemorrhagic shock. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to approximately 45% total blood loss and randomly divided into seven groups: (1) sham: cannulation, but no hemorrhage; (2) subjected to(More)
