Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia.

Abstract Title: Observation on therapeutic effects of blood-letting puncture with cupping in acute trigeminal neuralgia. Abstract Source: Int Immunopharmacol. 2010 Jul;10(7):760-8. Epub 2010 Apr 22. PMID: 10437209 Abstract Author(s): Z Zhang Abstract: In the present paper, 45 cases of acute trigeminal neuralgia were treated and observed by comparative method. Results showed no significant difference in transient analgesic effect (P>0.05) but a significant difference in therapeutic effect (P<0.01) between the treatment and control groups. This indicates that blood-letting puncture with cupping is an effective therapy for the disease. Article Published Date : Jul 01, 2010

Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster

Abstract Title: [Observation on therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping on herpes zoster]. Abstract Source: Zhongguo Zhen Jiu. 2009 Nov;29(11):887-90. PMID: 19994687 Abstract Author(s): Yin-ni Liu, Hong-xing Zhang, Guo-fu Huang, Ran Zou, Wei Wei Abstract: OBJECTIVE: To compare the therapeutic effect differences between electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting plus cupping and western medicine therapy. METHODS: Fifty-three cases were randomly divided into an observation group (n=31) and a control group (n=22). The observation group was treated by electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting with a plum-blossom needle at the affected parts plus cupping, once each day. The control group was treated by oral administration of Valaciclovir Hydrochlordide, Indomethacin, Vitamin B1 and Vitamin B12. RESULTS: The cured and markedly effective rate of 96.8% in the observation group was better than that of 81.8% in the control group (P<0.05), and improvements of pain, pruritus, burning sensation and sleep in the observation group were superior to those of the control group (all P<0.01). CONCLUSION: Electroacupuncture at Jiaji (EX-B 2) combined with blood-letting and cupping is a better therapy for herpes zoster and its therapeutic effect is better than that of routine western medicine therapy.

Women and Men in the History of Western Cardiology: Some Notes on Their Position as Patients, Role as Investigational Study Subjects, and Impact as Professionals.

Related Articles Women and Men in the History of Western Cardiology: Some Notes on Their Position as Patients, Role as Investigational Study Subjects, and Impact as Professionals. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2018;1065:1-30 Authors: Kerkhof PLM, Osto E Abstract Nowadays, it is generally appreciated that studies in the medical field should not only include sex-related aspects but also consider age. In the past, taking the era of Hippocrates as a starting point for the Western medical sciences, such aspects were less urgent and barely relevant. However, considering such details during daily life became increasingly important as the traditional roles of men and women in society and household converged. In the Western world, this fundamental transition process started recently and is advancing at an accelerated pace. Research about the role of women has also evolved, starting from plain history about the lives of women to a description of the relation between men and women, resulting in the gender concept. The present survey highlights a historical selection of observations referring to the impact of men and women on the medical sciences, as patient, study object, and professional. Whenever relevant, focus will be on the field of cardiovascular investigations as documented in the Western world. Rather than being exhaustive, we focus on a few remarkable icons, including Trota of Salerno, Hildegard von Bingen, and Miguel Serveto. PMID: 30051374 [PubMed - in process]
