[Effects of electroacupuncture on gastrin, mast cell and gastric mucosal barrier in the course of protecting rat stress peptic ulcer]
Institute of Acupuncture and Channel, Anhui College TCM, Hefei.
The experimental Wistar rats were divided into two groups, the acupuncture group and the control group. Stress-induced gastric ulcer models were established by immersion of restrained rats in water. The electroacupuncture was able to protect stress rat from stress induced peptic ulcer. The results indicated that electroacupuncture protecting rat from stress ulceration was relevant to enhancing gastric mucosal barrier, stabilizing gastric mast cell and inhibiting the gastrin levels in gastric mucous.
