The significance of anti-inflammatory effect of acupuncture in analgesia is manifested twofold: T...

ConclusionsThese results indicate that repeated EA stimulation exerted the same effects as tolvaptan application on AQPs levels and subsequent aquaretic effects. And dehydrating effect of EA on the inner ear might be associated with its down-regulation of both AQP2 and AQP7 protein expression, thereby provide a potential molecular mechanism involved in the treatment of Meniere's disease by EA.
