Electroacupuncture Attenuates Cerebral Ischemia and Reperfusion Injury in Middle Cerebral Artery Occlusion of Rat via Modulation of Apoptosis, Inflammation, Oxidative Stress, and Excitotoxicity

Figure 1

EA improves the neurological function scores and attenuates brain water content in MCAO rats. (a) Neurological function scores at 24 h after reperfusion ( animals per group). Rats receiving EA pretreatment and EA treatment showed significant improvement in neurological function compared with the MCAO model groups. (b) Both EA pretreatment and EA treatment significantly reduced brain water weight compared with the MCAO group ( animals per group). Data are represented as mean ± SEM. and   versus Sham; and    versus MCAO. EA, electroacupuncture; MCAO, middle cerebral artery occlusion.
