    ABSTRACT: To observe the intervention of electroacupuncture (EA) with different current frequencies and treatment frequencies on pain thresholt in rats with bone-cancer pain, so as to optimize treatment parameters of EA against bone cancer pain; and by measuring gene expression of opioid receptor and precursor in different tissues to preliminarily explore the possible mechanism of EA against bone cancer pain. Ninety healthy female SD rats were randomly divided into a control group, a model group, EA groups (6 subgroups according to different frequencies) and a sham EA group, ten rats in each one. Rats in the control group were injected with 10 µL of amicrobic phosphate buffer solution (PBS) into tibial cavity; rats in the remaining groups were injected with Walker 256 cancer cells to establish model of bone-cancer pain. No treatment was given to rats in the control group and model group; rats in the EA groups were treated with EA at bilateral "Housanli" (ST 36) and "Genduan" with 3 different current frequencies (2 Hz, 100 Hz and 2 Hz/100 Hz), once a day and once every other day, 30 min per treatment (1mA for 15 min, 2 mA for 15 min); rats in the sham EA group were treated with identical acupoints as the EA group, but the acupoints were needled subcutaneously and EA was connected with power off. All the treatment was given for 14 days. Dynamic plantar aesthesiometer was applied to measure the paw withdrawal thresholds (PWTs) of the affected side before the model establishment, 6d, 8d, 10d, 12d, 14d, 16d, 18d, and 20d after model establishment. The mRNA expressions of µ-opioid receptor (MOR), κ-opioid receptor (KOR), δ-opioid receptor (DOR), proopiomelanocortin (POMC) and prodynorphin (PDYN) in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) and lumbar spinal cord dorsal horn (SCDH) of L4-L6 of the affected side were detected by PCR method. There were no differences in PWTs among all groups before model establishment (P>0. 05). Each time point after model establishment, PWTs in model group were obviously lower than those in the control group (all P<0. 01). Compared with the model group, PWTs in each EA subgroup were all increased (all P<0.05), but the differences at different time points were not significant among EA subgroups (P>0.05). The mRNA expressions of MOR, KOR, POMC, and PDYN in L4-L6 DRG in the 2 Hz/100 Hz II group were significantly higher than those in model group (P<0. 05, P<0. 01), while the mRNA expressions of MOR, KOR, DOR, POMC and PDYN in SCDH were not different compared with the model group (P>0. 05). EA treatment has obvious analgesic effect on bone-cancer pain, however, its effect is not related with current frequency and treating frequency. EA against bone-cancer pain may be related with increasing the mRNA expression of some peripheral opioid receptors and precursor.

    ABSTRACT: To compare the difference in the clinical efficacy on infantile Tourette syndrome between the integrated therapy of acupuncture and pingganjianpi decoction and haloperidol tablets. Forty-seven children were randomized into an observation group (25 cases) and a control group (22 cases). In the observation group, acupuncture was applied to Taichong (LR 3), Baihui (GV 20), Zhongwan (CV 12), Zusanli (ST 36), etc. The needles were retained for 30 min. Acupuncture was given once a day and there were 5 days at intervals after 10 times of acupuncture. Additionally, pinggan jianpi decoction was prescribed. In the control group, haloperidol tablets were prescribed, starting from the small dose, 0. 05 mg/kg per day, twice a day. The treatment of 30 days made one session and 3 sessions were required. Yale global tic severity scale (YGTSS) was adopted to observe tic time, tic frequency and tic severity score before treatment and in 30 days, 60 days and 90 days after treatment in the two groups. The efficacy and adverse reactions were compared between the two groups. The total effective rates were 40. 0% (10/25), 64.0% (16/25) and 76.0% (19/25) in the observation group and were 59.1% (13/22), 68.2% (15/22) and 77.3% (17/22) in the control group in 30 days, 60 days and 90 days after treatment respectively. The effect in 30 days after treatment in the control group was better than that in the observation group (P<0. 05). The differences at the other time points were not significant between the two groups (all P>0. 05). The tic time, tic frequency and tic severity score at the each time point after treatment were reduced obviously as compared with those before treatment (all P<0. 05). Each item score in the control group was reduced obviously as compared with that in the observation group in 30 days after treatment (all P<0. 05). The differences at the other time points were not significant between the two groups (all P>0.05). The probability of adverse reaction in the observation group was less than that in the control group. The integrated therapy of acupuncture and medicine achieves the similar effect on infantile Tourette syndrome to haloperidol tablets and the side effects of it are less.

    ABSTRACT: To observe the clinical efficacy of acupuncture combined with auricular point sticking for menstrual headache and to discuss its mechanism. Eighty-five patients with menstrual headache were randomly divided into an observation group (43 cases) and a control group (42 cases). The observation group was treated with body acupuncture combined with auricular point sticking and the control group was treated with flunarizine hydrochloride capsules orally. The treatments of 3 menstrual cycles were required. The clinical efficacy was observed in the two groups. The content of serum prostaglandin F2α, (PGF2α) and plasma arginine vasopressin (AVP) in the menstrual periods of some patients randomly selected in the two groups was tested before and after treatment and was compared with that of 20 cases in a normal group. Results The total effective rate was 95.4% (41/43) in the observation group which was obviously superior to 81.0% (34/42) in the control group (P<0.01). Before treatment, the content of serum PGF2α and plasma AVP of patients in the two groups was higher than that in the normal group (all P<0.01). After treatment,the content of serum PGF2α and plasma AVP was lower than that before treatment in the two groups (P<0.01, P<0.05). The content of serum PGF2α in the observation group was decreased significantly compared with that in the control group (P<0.05) and returned to the level of the normal group. Body acupuncture combined with auricular point sticking achieves positive efficacy for menstrual headache and its mechanism could be related to regulating the abnormal levels of serum PGF2α and plasma AVP.

    ABSTRACT: This is to investigate the relationship between jingjin (the meridian of muscle region) and weiqi (the defensive qi) by referring to relevant studies. Jingjin is inherent in weiqi and originated from the meridian of foot-taiyang. It receives weiqi from the extremities and expands to several meridians of muscle regions. Jingjin is where weiqi travels and distributes. When weiqi combines with exogenous pathogens, this leads to Bi syndrome of meridian muscle regions. The analysis results in that the twelve kinds of Bi syndrome of meridian muscle regions belong to the category of Bi syndrome, which is caused by the invasion of pathogenic wind-cold-dampness into the muscle. The pathogenesis is related to the disorder of weiqi circulation. It is summarized that jingjin is closely related to weiqi and reflected in physiology and pathology, etc. The study guides to the diagnosis and treatment of jingjin diseases.

    ABSTRACT: To explore the effects of early intervention of acupuncture on urinary function reconstruction of neurogenic bladder after spinal cord injury, so as to find the optimal treatment timing of acupuncture. Fifty-three patients of neurogenic bladder after spinal cord injury were randomly divided into a prior-to-catheter group (25 cases) and a posterior-to-catheter group (28 cases). For the prior-to-catheter group, one week before the removal of catheter, acupoints on the abdomen and back such as Guanyuan (CV 4), Zhongji (CV 3), Baliao (Shangliao (BL 31), Ciliao (BL 32), Zhongliao (BL 33), Xialiao (BL 34), Jiaji (EX-B 2) and acupoints at distal end such as Zusanli (ST 36) and Sanyinjiao (SP 6) were selected; after the catheter removal, simple method. of water column was used to measure bladder capacity pressure to classify the type of bladder, and then different acupuncture manipulations were given; intermittent catheterization was performed if condition was allowed. The posterior-to-catheter group applied identical treatment after removal of catheter as the prior-to-catheter group. The treatment was given 5 times per week; after one-month treatment, five aspects including the time of first effective urination, time of establishing reflex urination, average residual volume of urine, time of residual urine less than 100 mL and quality of life (QOL) were evaluated. After treatment, the time of first effective urination, time of establishing reflex urination, average residual volume of urine and time of residual urineless than 100 mL in the prior-to-catheter group were all superior to those in the posterior-to-catheter group (all P<0. 05) ; the score of QOL was improved in two groups after treatment (both P<0. 01), but the difference between two groups was not statistically significant (P>0. 05); each index of urination function was not significant among patients with different injured segments of spinal cord (all P>0. 05). The early intervention of acupuncture (prior to catheter) has obvious improving function on establishing balanced bladder in patients with neurogenic bladder after spinal cord injury, which is superior to acupuncture intervention after removal of catheter, however, the effects of different injured segments on establishing balanced bladder are not different.

    ABSTRACT: The Chinese and English published literature regarding the effects of acupuncture on microcirculation in recent years were analyzed, and it was found out that the theory of TCM meridian had subtle connection with microcirculation on structure and function, which could provide a possible breakthrough for the research of meridian essence. Acupuncture, through multiple links, multiple paths and multiple levels, could regulate microcirculation under physiological or pathological condition, which was a bidirectional benign adjustment function, and reflected the characteristic of acupoint specificity. Due to many shortcomings in the current studies, studies with rigorous design, large sample size and multicenter are expected in the further to make a standard systematized research.

    ABSTRACT: To observe the differences in timely effectiveness of immediate analgesia on acute migraine between electroacupuncture (EA) at shaoyang meridian points and non-meridian points. The randomized controlled trial method was adopted. One hundred and ten cases of acute migraine were randomized into two groups. 55 cases in each one. In the observation group, EA was applied to Fengchi (GB 20), Waiguan (TE 5), etc. In the control group. EA was applied to non-meridian points. Only one treatment was given, and the nee dies were retained for 30 min in the two groups. Separately. at 10 time points, named before acupuncture, in 5 min, 10 min. 20 min and 30 min (at the moment of needle removal), 1 h, 2 h, 4 h, 6 h and 8 h after acupuncture, the pain intensity numerical rating scale (PI-NRS) was adopted to evaluate the pain severity and the adverse reac tion was recorded. (1) The effective rate of imnmediate analgesia was 87. 3% (48/55) in the observation group. significantly higher than 52.7% (29/55) in the control group (P<0.01). (2) NRS of each group was re duced at each time point, from 5 min to 8 h after acupuncture (all P<0.01). (3) NRS score at 30 min after acu puncture in the control group was obviously lower than that in the observation group (P<0.05), but the scores in 2 h, 4 h, 6 h and 8 h after acupuncture in the observation group were lower apparently than those in the control group (all P<0. 01). The differences in the scores in 5 min, 10 min, 20 min and 1 h after acupuncture were not significant (all P>0. 05). (4) For the reducing amplitude of NRS score at the same time point after acupuncture, the results in 20 min, 30 min and 1 h in the control group were higher apparently than those in the observation group (all P<0. 05). But, in 2 h, 4 h, 6 h and 8 h, the results in the observation group were higher apparently than those in the control group (all F<0.05). The differences in 5 min and 10 min after acupuncture were not significant (both P>0. 05). (5) In 24 h after acupuncture, the recurrence rate of migraine was 12. 7% (7/55) in the observation group, which was lower obviously than 34. 5% (19/55) in the control group (P<0. 05). The adverse reaction was not found in the two groups. EA at the shaoyang meridian points achieves the definite immediate analgesia effect on acute migraine and presents the time effectiveness of analgesia.

    ABSTRACT: In order to explore the clinical application and mechanism of the ghost points in the treatment of mental diseases, taking "the ghost points" and "mental diseases" as the theme and the key words, the literatures in recent 10 years on the treatment of mental diseases with the ghost points were collected from CNKI and Wanfang database and analyzed. It is discovered that the ghost points can treat schizophrenia, manic-depressive disorder, dementia, stroke, loss of consciousness, insomnia. anxiety, depression and hysteria and the efficacy is favorable. It is believed that the ghost points act on balancing yin and yang, regulating qi and blood, regaining consciousness and tranquilizing the mind and they achieve the very excellent effect on mental diseases. At present, the reports on this aspect are limited. Hence, it is required to promote the study on the clinical application and mechanism of the ghost points so as to enlarge the clinical indications of the ghost points and provide the powerful support on mechanism for the treatment of mental diseases.

    ABSTRACT: The studying on interrelation and interaction among blood-vessel network, nerve network and immune network is considered to be the key to reveal the mechanism of acupuncture treatment and the essence of meridians. A strip-like compound structure of mast cells, blood vessel and nerve network is observed in acupoint area. From its systematics nature and correlation with acupuncture effect and meridian phenomena, it is believed that the structure of mast cells, blood vessel and nerve network is an interactive system with interrelation and interaction among each other, and is an essential site and pivot to produce and transport matter, energy and information, and is the core structure of acupoint.

    ABSTRACT: With the wide application of acupuncture in the world, the research results of neurosciences have made scientific approval on some of efficacy and mechanism of acupuncture, and the concept of western medical acupuricture (WMA) is gradually developed. During the spread of Chinese acupuncture into western countries, WMA is an adaptive improvement when facing basic theories of western medicine including anatomy, physiology and pathology as well as evidence-based medicine system. WMA which is based on theory of muscle trigger point has obvious efficacy on muscular fasciae pain, which attracted wide attention. But when Chinese acupuncture spreads into western world, the theories of Chinese acupuncture such as meridian and specificity of acupoint are questioned due to the results of western clinical study. In this paper, the origin, theory development, stimulating location and method, and categories of diseases of WMA are compared with Chinese acupuncture, and the enlightenment of this difference on Chinese acupuncture research is analyzed.
