ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) pretreatment on inflammatory reaction, apoptosis and expression of Yes-associated protein (YAP) of ischemic penumbra of cerebral cortex in cerebral ischemia reperfusion injury rats, and to explore the possible mechanism of its neuroprotection effect.@*METHODS@#A total of 84 SD rats were randomized into a sham operation group (12 rats), a model group (18 rats), an EA group (18 rats), an EA+YAP virus transfection group (18 rats) and an EA+virus control group (18 rats). Except for the sham operation group, thread embolization method was adopted to establish the middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) model in rats of the other groups. EA was applied at "Baihui" (GV 20) and "Dazhui" (GV 14) for 30 min in the 3 EA intervention groups 2 h before model establishment, disperse-dense wave, 2 Hz/15 Hz in frequency and 1 mA in intensity. Adenovirus transfection technique was used to induce gene silencing of YAP in the EA+YAP virus transfection group, and adenovirus vectors was injected as negative control in the EA+virus control group 4 d before model establishment. Twenty-four hours after model establishment, neurological function score was evaluated, the relative cerebral infarction area was observed by TTC staining, the apoptosis in the ischemic penumbra of cerebral cortex was detected by TUNEL staining, the levels of inflammatory factors IL-1β, IL-6 and TNF-α in the ischemic penumbra of cerebral cortex was detected by ELISA method, the expression of YAP was detected by Western blot and immunofluorescence.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the sham operation group, the expression of YAP was increased in the model group (@*CONCLUSION@#Electroacupuncture pretreatment can effectively improve the ischemia reperfusion injury, its mechanism may be related to up-regulating the expression of YAP in the ischemic penumbra of cerebral cortex and relieving the apoptosis and inflammatory reaction.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) pretreatment on hippocampal oxidative stress in aged mice with postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) and explore the relevant mechanism of EA pretreatment on the improvement of learning and memory in POCD aged mice.@*METHODS@#A total of 72 healthy male aged mice were randomized into a blank group, a model group, a medication group and an EA group, 18 mice in each one. In each group, 1-day, 3-day and 7-day subgroups were divided separately, 6 mice in each subgroup. In the EA group, "Baihui" (GV 20) and "Dazhui" (GV 14) were selected and stimulated with EA, using continuous wave (15 Hz, 1 mA), continuously for 30 min, once a day, for 5 days consecutively. In the medication group, 10% minocycline was injected intraperitoneally, 40 mg/kg, once a day, consecutively for 5 days. In the blank and the control group, intraperitoneal injection of 0.9% sodium chloride solution was given with equal dosage. Except the blank group, at the end of intervention, partial hepatectomy was conducted to establish POCD model in the rest groups. Morris water maze test was adopted to evaluate the learning and memory ability of the aged mice. ELISA was used to determine the contents of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and malondialdehyde (MDA) in the hippocampal tissue. Western blot method was applied to detect the protein expressions of superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD 1) and superoxide dismutase 2 (SOD 2) in the hippocampal tissue.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the blank group, the percentage of platform quadrant residence time was obviously reduced in the mice in the model group (@*CONCLUSION@#Electroacupuncture pretreatment at "Baihui" (GV 20) and "Dazhui" (GV 14) may increase the learning and memory ability of POCD aged mice, which is probably related to the decrease of oxidative stress and the strengthening of hippocampal antioxidant capacity.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To screen protein target in prevention and treatment with electroacupuncture (EA) for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and explore the potential mechanism of EA in prevention of AD.@*METHODS@#A total of 40 APP/PS1 transgenic young male mice, 1.5-month old, were randomized into an EA group and a model group, 20 mice in each one, and 20 C57BL/6J mice were chosen as the normal control group. After adaptive housing for 1 week, the mice in the EA group were stimulated with EA at "Baihui" (GV 20), "Fengfu" (GV 16) and "Shenshu" (BL 23), with intermittent wave, 10 Hz in frequency and 2 mA in electric intensity. EA was given once daily, 20 min each time. There was 1 day at interval after EA for 6 days each week. Totally, the intervention lasted for 16 weeks. On day 3 after the end of EA intervention, Morris water maze test was adopted to detect learning and memory abilities of mice in each group. After water maze test, the label-free method was used to measure the difference expressions in cerebral cortex and hippocampus. Using Western blot method, the expressions of guanylate binding protein beta 5 (GNB 5) and histone-H 3 in cerebral cortex and hippocampus were verified. Using immunohistochemical method, the expressions of amyloid beta protein (Aβ) in cerebral cortex and hippocampus were detected.@*RESULTS@#Compared with the normal control group, the escape latency (on day 2, 3 and 4) was prolonged, the frequency of crossing platform and the duration of platform stay were decreased in the mice of the model group (@*CONCLUSION@#The intervention with EA effectively prevents from the decline of learning and memory ability and the formation of Aβ senile plaques in cerebral cortex and hippocampus in young mouse models of AD after growing up. Besides, EA plays a regulatory function for protein expression differences induced by AD model.

ABSTRACT

El catarro común, es una infección viral de nariz y garganta (vías respiratorias altas), generalmente inofensiva; siendo de las afectaciones más frecuentes en la población mundial, especialmente en las regiones tropicales. La medicina tradicional china comprende un conjunto de técnicas que, si se aplican de modo correcto, pueden ayudar en el proceso curativo de esta enfermedad. Estas están dirigidas a la eliminación del patógeno y la resolución del proceso de la enfermedad, acortando drásticamente el tiempo que uno está enfermo. En la medicina china tratamos de expulsar al patógeno, no solo matarlo. Esta pretende que sea el cuerpo el que se defienda por sí mismo, generando las defensas para esto. Esta situación se logra con una combinación de técnicas que se ajustan a cada persona. Para investigar sobre las técnicas que se aplican en esta patología, se realizó el presente trabajo, con la revisión de 16 artículos.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#To explore the effects of low-frequency electroacupuncture combined with aerobic exercise on sarocopenia, and the effects of IGF-I /Akt and its downstream signaling pathway-related protein.@*METHODS@#Naturally aging SD rats were used as research objects. Thirty-two 6-month-old male SD rats weighing 400 to 450 g were bred to 12-month-old and randomly divided into 4 groups according to body weight:Control group(YC, only grasp, fix, put back, without other intervention), electroacupuncture group (YA, electroacupuncture intervention), exercise group (YE, exercise intervention) and electroacupuncture+exercise group (YEA, electroacupuncture combined with exercise intervention). SD rats were continuously intervened from 12 months to 18 months of age. At the end of the experiment, the conditions of naturally aging rats in each group were observed:skeletal muscle wet weight / weight ratio;HE staining morphology of soleus muscle under light microscope; qPCR was used to detect the expression level of IGF-I mRNA in skeletal muscle;the expression of AKT, mTOR, p70S6K and p-p70S6K proteins in rat gastrocnemius was determined by Western blot.@*RESULTS@#In 18-month-old rats, the intervention period was 6 months. (1) Compared with YC group, YA group and YEA group significantly increased the wet weight / body weight ratio of gastrocnemius muscle in 18 months old rats. YEA group could significantly increase the wet weight / body weight ratio of soleus muscle compared with YC group YC group and YA group (@*CONCLUSION@#Electroacupuncture combined with aerobic exercise can attenuate sarocopenia in 18-month-old naturally aging rats. The molecular mechanism may be related to the promotion of protein synthesis by activating the IGF-I / Akt pathway.
