  • Electroacupuncture attenuates cerebral ischemia/reperfusion injury by
           regulating oxidative stress, neuronal death and neuroinflammation via
           stimulation of PPAR-γ

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Nanfang Cheng, Xinyuan Cheng, Feng Tan, Yangui Liang, Lihong Xu, Jian Wang, Jiuqing Tan
      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Oxidative stress and inflammatory responses play essential roles in cerebral ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Electroacupuncture (EA) is widely used as a rehabilitation method for stroke in China; however, the underlying mechanism of action remains unclear. Peroxisome proliferator–activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) has been reported to impact anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative effects.Objective:This study investigated the role of PPAR-γ in EA-mediated effects and aimed to illuminate its possible mechanisms in cerebral I/R.Methods:In this study, male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats with middle cerebral artery occlusion/reperfusion (MCAO/R) injury were treated with EA at LI11 and ST36 for 30 min daily after MCAO/R for seven consecutive days. The neuroprotective effects of EA were measured by neurobehavioral evaluation, triphenyltetrazolium chloride staining, hematoxylin–eosin staining and transmission electron microscopy. Oxidative stress, inflammatory factors, neural apoptosis and microglial activation were examined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, immunofluorescence and reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction. Western blotting was used to assess PPAR-γ-mediated signaling.Results:We found that EA significantly alleviated cerebral I/R-induced infarct volume, decreased neurological scores and inhibited I/R-induced oxidative stress, inflammatory responses and microglial activation. EA also increased PPAR-γ protein expression. Furthermore, the protective effects of EA were reversed by injection of the PPAR-γ antagonist T0070907.Conclusion:EA attenuates cerebral I/R injury by regulating oxidative stress, neuronal death and neuroinflammation via stimulation of PPAR-γ.

      Authors: Linhui Cao, Sheng Zhou, Jianjun Li, Kefang Chen, Xiaojin Xue, Wei Yi
      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:To investigate the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) at ST36 on intestinal microflora and plasma metabolites in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), to provide a theoretical basis and guidance for the clinical treatment of T2DM by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).Methods:Sixteen T2DM db/db mice were randomly divided into treatment (T, n = 8) and model (M, n = 8) groups, and a further eight normal db/m+ mice reared under the same conditions served as a non-diabetic control group (C, n = 8). The general conditions of mice were observed weekly. After obtaining blood and stool samples, the mice were euthanized. Fasting blood glucose (FBG) was measured using a glucometer and fasting insulin (FINS) was measured in plasma by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Liver and colon tissues were embedded in paraffin and subjected to hematoxylin–eosin (HE) staining to observe pathological changes in these tissues. In addition, 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) sequencing was performed to analyze changes in the intestinal flora and metabolomics was employed to assess changes in metabolites in the blood.Results:EA significantly reduced FBG and FINS levels and alleviated pathological damage to the liver and colon. Furthermore, EA increased intestinal community richness and diversity by decreasing the relative abundance of Clostridium and incresasing the relative abundance of Lactobacillus. EA also reduced D-fructose levels in T2DM mice according to plasma metabolomics.Conclusion:EA has a positive regulatory effect on the intestinal flora and can regulate blood glucose and improve insulin resistance in T2DM model mice.

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Acupuncture is a potentially effective non-pharmacological treatment for insomnia.Objective:We observed the responses of patients with insomnia to acupuncture in routine clinical practice. In addition, we explored patient characteristics that might affect the treatment response to acupuncture for insomnia.Methods:Medical records of patients with insomnia in a Korean medicine clinic with baseline Insomnia Severity Index (ISI) scores ⩾8 and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) scores ⩾5 were reviewed. Acupuncture was applied at ST43, GB41, ST41, SI5, HT3, KI10, HT7 and ST3, for 1–2 months. The ISI and PSQI were measured monthly to assess insomnia severity. The effect of acupuncture over time was analyzed using a multilevel linear model for repeated measures. In addition, logistic regression was used to explore predictors of treatment response.Results:A total of 91 patients with insomnia aged 59.2 ± 12.5 years (mean ± standard deviation (SD)) (90.1% female) were included in the analysis. After the acupuncture treatment, ISI scores were significantly reduced by −3.75 (95% confidence interval (CI) = −4.99, −2.50) and −4.69 (95% CI = −6.22, −3.16) after the first and second month, respectively. The PSQI global scores also improved, and sleep duration showed a tendency to increase by 0.35 h (95% CI = −0.17, 0.86) after acupuncture treatment. Three cases of mild fatigue were reported. In addition, higher baseline pain/discomfort predicted a greater likelihood of response after acupuncture treatment (odds ratio (OR) = 1.66, 95% CI = 1.10, 2.60).Conclusion:In a real-world setting, the insomnia of outpatients in a clinic was slightly alleviated after acupuncture treatment. These findings require validation by randomized controlled trials.

  • Effects of contralateral versus ipsilateral electroacupuncture for
           analgesia and rehabilitation after unilateral total knee arthroplasty: a
           randomized controlled trial

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Hai Huang, Kangmin Tang, Xiuling Song, Ling Zhao, Yongying Liang, Hui Xu, Lianbo Xiao, Yuelai Chen
      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose:Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a treatment for advanced knee osteoarthritis. Since postoperative pain affects rehabilitation, this study aimed to determine whether electroacupuncture (EA) contralateral to the surgical site is more effective than ipsilateral EA or sham EA in terms of relieving postoperative pain and promoting post-TKA rehabilitation.Methods:In this parallel, single-blind randomized controlled trial, 114 patients undergoing unilateral TKA were assigned to the contralateral EA (EA on the contralateral side + sham EA on the ipsilateral), ipsilateral EA (EA on the ipsilateral + sham EA on the contralateral side), or sham EA (sham EA on both sides) groups (n = 38 each). Treatment was performed once daily on postoperative days 1–3. The visual analog scale (VAS) scores, additional opioid doses via patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pump, Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) knee scores, active/passive range of motion (AROM/PROM), swelling around the knee joint, and Hamilton anxiety scale (HAMA) scores were used for postoperative evaluation.Results:At 3 days postoperatively, the VAS scores, HSS scores, AROM/PROM, swelling around the knee, and HAMA scores in the contralateral EA and ipsilateral EA groups were significantly improved compared with baseline. In addition, VAS scores, HSS scores, PROM and swelling around the knee were significantly better in the contralateral and ipsilateral EA groups than in the sham EA group, but similar in the two true EA groups. Furthermore, PCA additional dose release was significantly higher in the sham EA group than in the two true EA groups (which did not significantly differ). At 10 days postoperatively, the HSS scores, AROM/PROM, and HAMA scores were better in the contralateral and ipsilateral EA groups than in the sham EA group, but similar in the two true EA groups.Conclusion:Contralateral EA is more effective than sham EA for treating postoperative pain following TKA, but has an analgesic effect similar to that of ipsilateral EA.Trial registration number:ChiCTR1800020297 (Chinese Clinical Trial Registry)

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:The objective of this study was to assess the evidence for the impact of dry needling (DN) on hip pain and function.Methods:Medline/PubMed, Embase, Scopus, Web of Science and Cochrane CENTRAL databases were searched systematically through June 2022 for randomized clinical trials (RCTs) investigating the impact of DN on hip pain and function. Version 2 of the Cochrane risk-of-bias tool for randomized trials (RoB 2) was used to assess risk of bias. Descriptive analysis was conducted to explain the outcomes and adverse events of DN in hip joint diseases. Meta-analysis was not feasible due to significant heterogeneity.Results:A total of seven eligible studies (including 273 patients) were included out of 2152 screened records. Five studies were in participants with hip osteoarthritis (OA; n = 3), greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS; n = 1) or piriformis syndrome (n = 1); the other two studies were conducted in healthy athletes (n = 2). Two articles assessed changes in participants’ short-term visual analog scale (VAS) scores (

      Authors: Shiya Huang, Chuyi Yu, Min Hu, Qidan Wen, Xiaohui Wen, Shuna Li, Kunyin Li, Hongxia Ma
      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:This study was designed to evaluate the effects of low-frequency electroacupuncture (EA) on glucose and lipid disturbances in a rat model of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) characterized by insulin resistance (IR) and hepatic steatosis.Methods:The PCOS rat model was induced by continuous administration of letrozole (LET) combined with a high-fat diet (HFD). Female Sprague–Dawley rats were divided into the following four groups: control, control + EA, LET + HFD and LET + HFD + EA. EA was administered five or six times a week with a maximum of 20 treatment sessions. Body weight, estrous cyclicity, hormonal status, glucose and insulin tolerance, lipid profiles, liver inflammation factors, liver morphology and changes in the phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3-K)/Akt (protein kinase B) pathway were evaluated.Results:The rat model presented anovulatory cycles, increased body weight, elevated testosterone, abnormal glucose and lipid metabolism, IR, liver inflammation, hepatic steatosis and dysregulation of the insulin-mediated PI3-K/Akt signaling axis. EA reduced fasting blood glucose, fasting insulin, area under the curve for glucose, homeostasis model assessment of IR indices, triglycerides and free fatty acids, and alleviated hepatic steatosis. Furthermore, low-frequency EA downregulated mRNA expression of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and interleukin (IL)-6, upregulated mRNA expression of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)-α, increased protein expression of phosphorylated (p)-Akt (Ser473), p-glycogen synthase kinase (GSK) 3β (Ser9) and glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4), increased the ratio of p-GSK3β to GSK3β and downregulated protein expression of GSK3β.Conclusion:An obese PCOS rat model with IR and hepatic steatosis was successfully established by the combination of LET and HFD. EA improved dysfunctional glucose and lipid metabolism in this PCOS-IR rat model, and the molecular mechanism appeared to involve regulation of the expression of key molecules of the PI3-K/Akt insulin signaling pathway in the liver.

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:To examine for the in vitro existence of contractile nodules on the taut band of muscle fibers where myofascial trigger points (MTrPs) are located (using cell culture).Methods:Sixteen male Sprague–Dawley rats (7 weeks old) were randomly divided into experimental and control groups. A blunt striking injury and eccentric exercise were applied to the gastrocnemius muscle of rats in the experimental group once a week for 8 weeks to establish an MTrP model. Subsequently, the rats were reared normally and rested for 4 weeks. After modeling, the skeletal muscles at the MTrPs (and non-MTrPs at the same anatomical position) were extracted from the two groups of rats for in vitro cell culture experiments of single muscle fibers. Potential contractile nodules in the MTrP group were exposed to different concentrations of acetylcholinesterase, whereas non-MTrP cells were exposed to acetylcholine. The morphological changes of muscle cells in each group were observed.Results:By culturing MTrP cells in vitro, large contractile nodules remained in single MTrP muscle fibers, whereas some contractile nodules were twisted and deformed. After the addition of different acetylcholinesterase concentrations, no obvious morphological changes were observed in the contractile nodules in the MTrP group. After the non-MTrP cells were exposed to different acetylcholine concentrations, no significant morphological changes were observed in the single muscle fibers.Conclusion:MTrP cells can continue to maintain contractile morphology in vitro, but whether the recovery of such contractile nodules is related to acetylcholine remains uncertain.

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background/Objective:Tobacco use remains the leading cause of preventable death in the United States. The most widely available treatment options to assist patients in smoking cessation are limited by side effects and moderate efficacy at best. Acupuncture may be an effective option for smoking cessation. The goal of this study was to establish the need for and interest in acupuncture therapy to potentially assist with smoking cessation from a patient perspective.Methods:We conducted a cross-sectional survey study among patients aged 18 years or older whose medical record reported current tobacco use with English as their preferred language. REDCap surveys were administered to patients during office visits and included questions regarding opinions and use of all treatments available for smoking cessation (including acupuncture) as well as perceived barriers to acupuncture treatment.Results:A total of 57 surveys were distributed, and 42 (74%) were completed. Most patients reported previous attempts at quitting (76%) and had tried a variety of treatments including nicotine replacement (45%), Chantix (varenicline; 23%), Wellbutrin (bupriopion; 19%), “cold turkey” (65%) and hypnosis (3%). No respondents reported having tried acupuncture for smoking cessation.Conclusion:When comparing treatment options, patients reported more interest in acupuncture than other treatment options with a statistically significant difference in the level of interest between acupuncture and bupropion. All barriers (cost, time and effectiveness) were equally rated on a Likert-type scale with a median of 50 on a 101-point scale.

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:The objective of this study was to compare trigger point (TrP) dry needling, TrP electroacupuncture and motor point electroacupuncture of the trapezius muscle for the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome (MPS).Methods:This randomised clinical trial included 90 patients divided into three groups. Group 1 was treated with dry needling of TrPs, group 2 with intramuscular electrical stimulation of TrPs, and group 3 with electroacupuncture of motor points and/or the spinal accessory nerve. Each group received seven treatment sessions. The outcomes were the pain score measured by visual analogue scale (VAS) and quality of life evaluated by the 12-item short form (SF-12) health questionnaire. We compared the pain outcome over serial time points using growth curve analysis methods.Results:Participants in the three groups experienced significant improvements in pain scores over time. The average pain level of participants in group 3 across the repeated assessments was 0.98 units lower than in group 1 (mean difference (95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.74–0.23)), p = 0.012). There were no significant differences in pain scores between participants in groups 1 and 2, and there were no significant differences in quality of life across the three groups at the end of the treatment period.Conclusion:Our results provide evidence that electrical stimulation of motor points and/or of the spinal accessory nerve may be superior in terms of pain relief (but not quality of life) to dry needling and possibly electrical stimulation of trigger points for the management of MPS involving the trapezius.Trial registration number:TRIAL-RBR-43R7RF (Brazilian Clinical Trials Registry)

  • The protein kinase A signaling pathway mediates the effect of
           electroacupuncture on excessive contraction of the bladder detrusor in a

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Neurogenic bladder (NB) is a form of neurological bladder dysfunction characterized by excessive contraction of the bladder detrusor. Protein kinase A (PKA) signaling is involved in the contraction of the detrusor muscle.Aims:To investigate whether PKA signaling mediates the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) on the excessive contraction of the bladder detrusor in NB.Methods:Sixty rats were randomly divided into control, sham, NB, NB + EA, and NB + EA + H89 (a PKA receptor antagonist) groups. The modified Hassan Shaker spinal cord transection method was used to generate a NB model. After EA intervention for one week, urodynamic tests were used to evaluate bladder function, hematoxylin and eosin staining was conducted to assess morphological changes, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was performed to measure the concentration of PKA, and Western blotting was conducted to measure the protein levels of phosphorylated myosin light chain kinase (p-MLCK)/p-MLC.Results:The results showed that NB resulted in morphological disruption, impairment of urodynamics, and decreases in the concentration of PKA and the protein levels of p-MLCK/p-MLC. EA reversed the changes induced by NB dysfunction. However, the improvement in urodynamics and the increases in the concentration of PKA and the protein levels of p-MLCK/p-MLC were inhibited by H89.Conclusion:Our findings indicate that the PKA signaling pathway mediates the beneficial effect of EA on excessive contraction of the bladder detrusor in a rat model of NB.

  • Electroacupuncture at GB20 improves cognitive ability and synaptic
           plasticity via the CaM–CaMKII–CREB signaling pathway following
           cerebral ischemia–reperfusion injury in rats

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:This study aimed to investigate the effects of electroacupuncture (EA) on cognitive recovery and synaptic remodeling in a rat model of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) followed by reperfusion and explore the possible mechanism.Method:Focal cerebral ischemia was modeled in healthy adult Sprague-Dawley rats by MCAO. The MCAO rats were classified into four groups: sham, MCAO, MCAO + GB20 (receiving EA at GB20) and MCAO + NA (receiving EA at a “non-acupoint” location not corresponding to any traditional acupuncture point location about 10 mm above the iliac crest). Neurological deficit scores and behavior were assessed before and during the treatment. After intervention for 7 days, the hippocampus was dissected to analyze growth-associated protein (GAP)-43, synaptophysin (SYN) and postsynaptic density protein (PSD)-95 expression levels by Western blotting. Bioinformatic analysis and primary hippocampal neurons with calcium-voltage gated channel subunit alpha 1B (CACNA1B) gene overexpression were used to screen the target genes for EA against MCAO.Results:Significant amelioration of neurological deficits and learning/memory were found in MCAO + GB20 rats compared with MCAO or MCAO + NA rats. Protein levels of GAP-43, SYN and PSD-95 were significantly improved in MCAO + GB20–treated rats together with an increase in the number of synapses in the hippocampal CA1 region. CACNA1B appeared to be a target gene of EA in MCAO. There were increased mRNA levels of CACNA1B, calmodulin (CaM), Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase type II (CaMKII) and cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element binding (CREB) and increased phosphorylation of CaM, CaMKII and CREB in the hippocampal region in MCAO + GB20 versus MCAO and MCAO + NA groups. CACNA1B overexpression modulated expression of the CaM–CaMKII–CREB axis.Conclusion:EA treatment at GB20 may ameliorate the negative effects of MCAO on cognitive function in rats by enhancing synaptic plasticity. EA treatment at GB20 may exert this neuroprotective effect by regulating the CACNA1B–CaM–CaMKII–CREB axis.

      Abstract: Acupuncture in Medicine, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Postoperative gastrointestinal dysfunction (PGD) is one of the most common complications among patients who have undergone thoracic surgery. Acupuncture has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat gastrointestinal diseases and has shown benefit as an alternative therapy for the management of digestive ailments. This study aimed to explore the therapeutic effectiveness of acupuncture as a means to aid postoperative recovery of gastrointestinal function in patients undergoing thoracoscopic surgery.Methods:In total, 112 patients aged 18–70 years undergoing thoracoscopic surgery between 15 June 2022 and 30 August 2022 were randomized into two groups. Patients in the acupuncture group (AG) first received acupuncture treatment 4 h after surgery, and treatment was repeated at 24 and 48 h. Patients in the control group (CG) did not receive any acupuncture treatment. Both groups received the same anesthetic protocol. Ultrasound-guided thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) was performed in the paravertebral spaces between T4 and T5 with administration of 20 mL of 0.33% ropivacaine. All patients received patient-controlled intravenous analgesia (PCIA) after surgery.Results:Median time to first flatus [interquartile range] in the AG was significantly less than in the CG (23.25 [18.13, 29.75] vs 30.75 [24.13, 45.38] h, p
