[The effect of acupuncture on rabbits with fever caused by endotoxin]
Guangzhou College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Guangdong.
Forty-eight rabbits were used to investigate the effect of puncturing GV14, LI11 on the change of temperature and the level of plasma endotoxin. The animals were divided into 5 groups: reinforcing manipulation, reducing manipulation, electroacupuncture, endotoxin-control, N.S.-control group. The result shows that there is no influence on the fever caused by endotoxin and the level of plasma endotoxin in the treatments by the different acupuncture techniques.
