Associations of Electroacupuncture with chemical compounds

  • However, successful electroacupuncture was associated with a rise in CSF met-enkephalin levels in all patients studied, although concentrations in blood did not alter [29].
  • Substance P, the other neuropeptide of this study, also seems to be important in mediating effects of electroacupuncture [25].
  • After noxious stimulation or electroacupuncture, no c-fos enhancement occurred in any of those sites in capsaicin-treated animals, and there was no increased plasma release of adrenocorticotropic hormone [30].
  • The purpose of these studies was to determine the role of gracile nucleus and the effects of l-arginine-derived nitric oxide (NO) synthesis in the nucleus on the cardiovascular responses to electroacupuncture (EA) stimulation of "Zusanli" (ST36) [31].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our study demonstrates that bladder instillation with 1% acetic acid induces fos protein expression in the spinal micturition center of the rat and that electroacupuncture can reduce this expression [32].
