  • The neuro-immune microenvironment of acupoints-initiation of acupuncture effectiveness. [Journal Article]
    J Leukoc Biol. 2020 Jul; 108(1):189-198.Gong Y, Li N, … Xu Z
  • Acupuncture is a centuried and unfading treatment of traditional Chinese medicine, which has been proved to exert curative effects on various disorders. Numerous works have been put in to uncover the effective mechanisms of acupuncture. And the interdependent interaction between acupuncture and acupoint microenvironment is a crucial topic. As a benign minimally invasive stimulation, the insertion…
  • Association between HDL-C levels and menopause: a meta-analysis. [Review]
    Hormones (Athens). 2020 Jun 18 [Online ahead of print]Li H, Sun R, … Zhang Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Unlike increased LDL-C, TC, and TG levels, HDL-C levels in pre- and postmenopausal women were not different in this first meta-analysis of lipid profiles in premenopausal and postmenopausal women. Prospective studies with large populations examining HDL-C levels and functions in women with different menopausal statuses are essential in the future.
  • Effect of Different Frequencies of Electroacupuncture on Post-Stroke Dysphagia in Mice. [Journal Article]
    J Mol Neurosci. 2020 Jun 09 [Online ahead of print]Yao S, Liu Y, … Xu N
  • The aim of this study was to determine the optimum frequency of electroacupuncture (EA) for the treatment of dysphagia after stroke. Male C57BL/6 J mice were randomly divided into five groups: normal, model, 2 Hz, 50 Hz, and 100 Hz groups. All mice received a photochemical ischemia, except the normal group. The EA parameters were 1 mA for 15 min, with different frequencies (2, 50, and 100 Hz) app…
  • An evidence mapping and analysis of registered COVID-19 clinical trials in China. [Journal Article]
    BMC Med. 2020 06 01; 18(1):167.Lu L, Li F, … Xu N
  • CONCLUSIONS: We provide an evidence mapping and analysis of registered COVID-19 clinical trials in China. In particular, it is critical for ongoing and future studies to refine their research hypothesis and better identify their intervention therapies and the corresponding primary outcomes. It is also imperative for multiple public health divisions and research institutions to work together for integrative clinical data capture and sharing, with a common objective of improving future studies that evaluate COVID-19 interventions.
  • Emergency department preparation for COVID-19: accelerated care units. [Journal Article]
    Emerg Med J. 2020 May 27 [Online ahead of print]Noble J, Degesys NF, … Raven M
  • By 11 February 2020 when the WHO named the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and the disease it causes (COVID-19), it was evident that the virus was spreading rapidly outside of China. Although San Francisco did not confirm its first locally transmitted cases until the first week of March, our ED and health system began preparing for a potential COVID-19 surge in late February 2020.In this manuscrip…
  • Hamstring strength and architectural adaptations following inertial flywheel resistance training. [Journal Article]
    J Sci Med Sport. 2020 May 19 [Online ahead of print]Presland JD, Opar DA, … Timmins RG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Flywheel leg-curl training performed with an eccentric bias led to significant lengthening of BFlh fascicles without a change in RFD, eccentric or isometric strength. These increases in fascicle length were lost following a 4-week detraining period. Conventional flywheel leg-curl training resulted in no changes in fascicle length, strength and RFD. These findings suggest that additional eccentric bias is required during inertial flywheel resistance training to promote fascicle lengthening in the BFlh, however this may still be insufficient to cause alterations to strength and RFD.
  • The Challenge of Maintaining Metabolic Health During a Global Pandemic. [Journal Article]
    Sports Med. 2020 07; 50(7):1233-1241.King AJ, Burke LM, … Hawley JA
  • The ongoing global pandemic brought on by the spread of the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is having profound effects on human health and well-being. With no viable vaccine presently available and the virus being rapidly transmitted, governments and national health authorities have acted swiftly, recommending 'lockdown' policies and/or various levels of social restriction/isolation to attenuate the…
  • Nonhormonal Hot Flash Management for Breast Cancer Survivors: A Systematic Review and Network Meta-Analysis. [Review]
    Evid Based Complement Alternat Med. 2020; 2020:4243175.Liu J, Nie G, … Yang H
  • CONCLUSIONS: This network meta-analysis comparing nonhormonal treatments suggested that acupuncture might be more effective in improving hot flashes for breast cancer survivors. A pronounced placebo response was found during hot flash treatments. The evidence of safety for nonhormonal therapies was also insufficient. Therefore, at present, we cannot make confirmative recommendations of nonhormonal hot flash management for breast cancer survivors. This study is registered with PROSPERO (CRD42018082008).
  • A Clinical Randomized Controlled Trial of Acupuncture Treatment of Gastroparesis Using Different Acupoints. [Journal Article]
    Pain Res Manag. 2020; 2020:8751958.Xuefen W, Ping L, … Yue Z
  • CONCLUSIONS: (1) Acupuncture is an effective method for the treatment of gastroparesis. (2) The combination of Zhongwan (CV 12) with Zusanli (ST 36) showed the most promising effect on relief of the symptoms in patients with gastroparesis. (3) "Selecting acupoints by site" is the key factor affecting the synergy effect of "acupoint compatibility." This trial was registered with the International Center for Clinical Trials (registration no. NCT02594397).
  • "Olfactory Three-Needle" Enhances Spatial Learning and Memory Ability in SAMP8 Mice. [Journal Article]
    Behav Neurol. 2020; 2020:2893289.Wang Y, Wang Q, … Zhu B
  • As one of the most important therapies in complementary and alternative medicine, acupuncture has been used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Acupuncture of "olfactory three-needle" manipulation can improve the cognitive ability of AD patients. However, the mechanism of "olfactory three-needle" in AD remains largely unknown. Here, we identified that the "olfactory three-needle" therap…
