  • Electroacupuncture can effectively reverse atherosclerosis.
    PMID:  Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2020 ;2020:5790275. Epub 2020 Oct 31. PMID: 33273953 Abstract Title:  Electroacupuncture Inhibits Atherosclerosis through Regulating Intestinal Flora and Host Metabolites in Rabbit. Abstract:  Methods: In this study, general rabbit conditions, vascular histology, metabolites, and intestinal flora structures were analyzed. Integrated analysis of metabolomics and 16S rRNA sequencing were performed. All the rabbits were randomly divided into four groups. The rabbit model of atherosclerosis was established. The histopathological change in the common carotid artery was assessed by HE staining and the structural change in the flora by 16S rRNA sequencing. HPLC-TOF-MS and Agilent MPP 12.1... Read more »
