OBJECTIVE To observe the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on gastrointestinal motility and the ultrastructure of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) and the expressions of c-kit receptor protein and stem cell factor (SCF) mRNA in diabetic gastroparesis (DGP) rats, so as to explore its mechanism. METHODS Fifty SD rats were randomly divided into normal, model, acupoint, non-acupoint and metoclopramide groups (n=10 rats/group). DGP model was established by intraperitoneal injection of… CONTINUE READING
