  • Research progress of acupuncture in the treatment of Parkinson's disease

    Lin-Jing Wang   Jia-Shuai Li   Xue Wang   Ji-Yao Zhang   Lu-Wen Zhu  

    Parkinson's disease(PD)is a common degenerative disease of the central nervous system.The basic and clinical research of acupuncture therapy has witnessed several advances in the treatment of PD.The purpose of this study is to provide some ideas for clinical acupuncture therapy in the treatment of PD.The authors attempt to achieve this objective by systematically organizing the clinical efficacy studies of several acupuncture therapies for PD and elaborating the mechanisms of action in terms of secretion of substantia nigra dopaminergic neurons,level of oxidative stress,inflammatory response,excitotoxicity,and mitochondrial dysfunction.

  • Effect of acupuncture on cerebral hematoma volume and HO-1 expression in rats with acute cerebral hemorrhage

    Qiu-Xin Chen[1,3]   Ting-Ting Yu   Yu Zhang   Peng Liu   Xin Zhang   Ying Kong   Lu-Wen Zhu  

    Objective:To explore the effect of acupuncture on the expression of heme oxygenase-1 in rats with acute cerebral hemorrhage.Methods:108 Wistar male rats were randomly divided into sham operation group,model group,and acupuncture combined with model group(referred to as acupuncture group).Each group was divided into 3 subgroups according to 1d,3d and 7d,with 6 rats in each subgroup.The rat model of cerebral hemorrhage was established by autologous blood injection.Acupuncture was given at Baihui(GU20)and Qubin(GB7).Separately,at the 1st,3rd and 7th day,modified neurological severity score was used to evaluate the neurological function of rats,HE staining was used to measure the volume of cerebral hematoma and western blot was used to detect the expression of heme oxygenase-1 protein in cerebral hematoma tissue.Results:Compared with the model group,at each time point,the modified neurological severity score of the acupuncture group was significantly reduced(P<0.01);at the two time points of 3rd and 7th day,the cerebral hematoma volume of the acupuncture group was significantly reduced(P<0.05)and the expression of heme oxygenase-1 protein in brain tissue was significantly increased(P<0.05).Conclusion:Acupuncture may promote the expression of heme oxygenase-1 protein,reduce the volume of hematoma and the score of neurological deficit in rats with intracerebral hemorrhage,improve the performance of neurological deficit,and play a role in brain protection.
