OBJECTIVE To observe changes of brain glucose metabolism by needling at Waiguan (SJ5) in cerebral infraction (CI) patients using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron-emission computer tomography (PET/CT), thus exploring its effect and mechanisms. METHODS A total of 21 patients with CI were recruited in this study. The location of lesion was limited to the left basal ganglia by CT or MRI scan. All patients were randomly assigned to three groups. i.e., the acupoint group (Group A), the non…

Antihyperglycaemic Effect of Laser Acupuncture Treatment at Bl20 in Diabetic Rats
TLDR
Stimulation with laser acupuncture at 650 and 980 nm at BL20 in STZ-induced diabetic rats has antihyperglycaemic activity and the results support further evaluation of laser acupuncture as an alternative or complementary treatment for the control of hyperglycaemia.
The Status of the Acupuncture Mechanism Study Based on PET/PET-CT Technique: Design and Quality Control
TLDR
It is found that reasonable arrangement of the operation process and the choice of appropriate acupuncture intervention time is conducive to a better interpretation of acupuncture-PET/PET-CT mechanism and effective quality control is an important way to ensure the repeatability of research results.
Improving glucose metabolism in the auditory cortex delays the aging of auditory function of guinea pig
TLDR
Investigation of whether improving glucose metabolism in the auditory cortex can delay the aging of auditory function of guinea pigs with age-related hearing loss (ARHL) by d-galactose suggests that the decrease of glucose metabolism may be an important role in the agingof auditory function.
