Myocardial cell apoptosis is very common in the clinic, and is caused by myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury (MIRI). There are different degrees of cell apoptosis in MIRI. However, initiation of the signal transduction mechanism of myocardial cell apoptosis is unclear. The present research confirmed that acupuncture and moxibustion are effective interventions for cell apoptosis in MIRI through three approaches:the death receptor pathway, mitochondrial pathway and endoplasmic reticulum pathway. In this paper, the authors summarize the mechanism characteristics of acupuncture and moxibustion in MIRI cell apoptosis, and discuss the signal transduction pathways involved in the effects of acupuncture and moxibustion in MIRI cell apoptosis, in order to provide new ideas and evidence for the clinical application of acupuncture and moxibustion to prevent cell apoptosis in MIRI...

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of warm needle moxibustion (WNM) on knee-joint swelling and expression of sirtuin 1 (SIRT 1, a class Ⅲ histone/protein deacetylase) and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) in synovial tissue in rats with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: Fifty SD rats were randomly divided into five groups:normal control, model, SIRT 1-inhibitor, WNM, and SIRT 1-inhibitor plus WNM (inhibitor+WNM), n=10 rats in each group. The RA model was established by subcutaneous injection of bovine type Ⅱ collagen at the sole, once daily for 21 days...

Herb-partitioned moxibustion can effectively mitigate visceral pain, a major symptom in inflammatory bowel disease, but the analgesic mechanism is still unclear. Moreover, extracellular signal-regulated kinase, substance P, and neurokinin-1 are involved in formation of central hyperalgesia. Thus, we postulated that the analgesic effect of herb-partitioned moxibustion may be associated with these factors. Accordingly, in this study, we established an inflammatory bowel disease visceral pain model in rat by enema with a mixed solution of 5% trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid and 50% ethanol...

Acupuncture has a good curative effect in the treatment of gastrointestinal system diseases, such as functional dyspepsia, ulcerative colitis, and constipation. The central nuclei which are involved in the mechanism of acupuncture in regulating the gastrointestinal system have become a research hotspot in recent years. In the present paper, the authors summarized the effect of acupuncture and the central nervous system on gastrointestinal function regulation. It was found that the regulation of gastrointestinal function by acupuncture involved many brain regions such as the amygdala, paraventricular nucleus, locus coeruleus, raphe nucleus, and dorsal nucleus of the vagus nerve...

With the development of moxibustion use, increasing attention has focused on the safety of moxa smoke. Evaluation of the safety of moxa smoke has now become an urgent problem in moxibustion clinical practice. An epidemiological study could provide direct evidence of the safety of moxa smoke, but has not yet been comprehensively and systematically studied. In the present paper, the authors discuss the research methods used in epidemiological studies of the clinical safety of moxa smoke and some key problems regarding definition of the exposed population, the determination of exposure outcome, the choice of psychological measuring tool and the assessment of exposure level...

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease. Persistent inflammation of the synovial membrane is the main characteristic pathological symptom. Moxibustion for treating RA has achieved significant clinical effect in recent years. A large number of experimental studies have also shown that moxibustion promoted the repair of inflammatory damage induced by RA. Based on summarizing 10 years related literatures, the authors analyzed the repair mechanisms of moxibustion for inflammatory damage in RA from central mechanisms including glucocorticoid receptor, melatonine, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, and cholinergic nerve to peripheral mechanisms including local inflammatory mediators, cytokine, and inflammatory cell signaling pathway, so as to provide evidences and reference for further research...

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is an important part of China's medical system. Due to the prolonged low price of TCM procedures and the lack of an effective mechanism for dynamic price adjustment, the development of TCM has markedly lagged behind Western medicine. The World Health Organization (WHO) has emphasized the need to enhance the development of alternative and traditional medicine when creating national health care systems. The establishment of scientific and appropriate mechanisms to adjust the price of medical procedures in TCM is crucial to promoting the development of TCM...
