Background: It is well known that gastric mucosa dysplasia and intestinal metaplasia are gastric precancerous lesions (GPL). Moxibustion treatment of (ST21) and (ST36) alleviated the inflammatory response and dysplasia of gastric mucosa in our previous study. The purpose of this study was to further examine the underlying mechanism of moxibustion treatment of ST21 and ST36 on GPL. Read More

Jiangxi University of TCM, China.
Objective: To explore relevant material basis of moxibustion for recovering gastric mucosal lesion. METHODL Forty-five SD rats were randomly divided into a normal goup, a model group, an acupoint group and a control group, 15 rats in the model group and 10 rats in the rest three groups. Except the normal group, binding and cold stress method were used to establish gastric mucosa injury model. Read More

Aim: To observe the effects of pre-moxibustion on apoptosis and proliferation of gastric mucosal cell in rats with stress-induced ulcer, and to analyze the relationship between those effects and the expression of heat-shock protein 70 (HSP70).
Methods: Sixty healthy Sprague Dawley rats were randomly assigned into four groups, namely group A, B, C and D. The animal model of stress ulcer was established by water immersion and restraint stress. Read More

Objective: To observe the effects of moxibustion on contents of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha) and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expression in the gastric mucosa tissue in rats with gastric mucosal lesion.
Methods: Thirty-six SD rats were randomly and equally divided into control, model and moxibustion groups. Gastric mucosal lesion model was duplicated by restraint and cool water immersion stress. Read More
