Comparison of the effect of EA and indomethacin on mechanical hyperalgesia of MSU-induced acute gout arthritis. (a) Experimental scheme of EA or indomethacin (Indo) treatment on rat gout model. Veh1 indicates PBS. Indomethacin (5 mg/kg) or vehicle (0.1% DMSO, Veh2) was injected (i.p.) to the rats 2 h and EA was applied 30 min before PWT quantification, respectively. (b) Time courses of the effects of 2/100 Hz EA and indomethacin on the mechanical hyperalgesia of rat gout model. (c) Normalized AUC of panel (b). versus Veh1 group. versus MSU + Veh2 group. NS: not significant. rats/group.
