Effects of single moxibustion on cutaneous blood vessel and microvascular permeability in mice
Journal/Book: American Journal of Chinese Medicine. 1990; 18(3-4): 121-130.
Abstract: The effects of a single cone moxibustion on cutaneous blood vessel and microvascular permeability in ddY mice have been studied by microscopical observation and by the dye leakage technique. In our results, moxibustion induced some kind of inflammatory response such as the blood vessel reaction with leukocytes exudation and the enhancement of microvascular permeability, which is considered one of the host defense mechanisms.
