We investigated the changes of pain-related spinal signaling pathway after electroacupuncture (EA) stimulation in a carrageenan-induced rat model. EA stimulation (2Hz, 1mA) was needle-delivered for 30 min at acupoints corresponding to Zusanli and Sanyinjiao 3 h after carrageenan injection. Thermal and mechanical sensitivity of the hindpaw induced by carrageenan was strongly inhibited by EA stimulation. Phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K… CONTINUE READING
