Effects of moxibustion at different times on prostaglandin and vasopressin levels in uterine tissues of rats with dysmenorrhea due to cold-dampness retention

Effects of moxibustion at different times on prostaglandin and vasopressin levels in uterine... Objective: To observe the effects of moxibustion at different times on prostaglandin E (PGE ), prostaglandin F (PGF ) 2 2 2α 2α and arginine vasopressin (AVP), in the uterine tissues of rats with dysmenorrhea due to cold-dampness retention, and to explore the differences and possible mechanisms of moxibustion at different times in easing pain in dysmenorrhea due to cold-dampness retention. Methods: Forty-three female W istar rats were randomly divided into a blank control group (n=7), a model group (n=9), a pre-moxibustion group (n=9), an immediate-moxibustion group (n=9) and a pre-moxibustion plus immediate- moxibustion group (n=9). Rat models of primary dysmenorrhea due to cold-dampness retention were established using (0±1) ℃ ice water immersion method combined with injection of estradiol benzoate for 10 d, followed by injection of oxytocin on the 11th day. Rats in the 3 intervention groups received moxibustion to Shenque (CV 8) and Guanyuan (CV 4), 10 min for each acupoint, once a day. Rats in pre-moxibustion group were given mild moxibustion, beginning on the 8th day during modeling, for 3 continuous days; rats in immediate-moxibustion group were given one time mild moxibustion, immediately after injection of oxytocin on the 11th day during modeling; rats in pre-moxibustion http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Acupuncture and Tuina Science Springer Journals
