Objective: To regulate acupuncture treatment, objective and scientific assessment of efficacy, intends to use the basic theory of TCM, combined with modern medical research, and the use of hypoxic-ischemic brain damage in newborn animal models, molecular biology, immunology technology to observe the different needle thorn time brain stem cell proliferation, differentiation, and to explore the mechanism of acupuncture treatment of neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, HIE), clear needling the best treatment of the disease of aging. Science provide acupuncture treatment HIE with solid theoretical basis, looking more suitable for the safety of the children with the characteristics of the integrated treatment of HIE, practical and effective method. MATERIALS AND METHODS: seven days of healthy newborn male and female SD rats informal, weight 12g-14g, were randomly divided into normal (blank) control group, 24, model group (n = 24), fast thorn needle retention group (speed thorn) 24 needle retention 30min 24, the three groups after ligation of the left common carotid artery and hypoxia 2 hours making neonatal rat with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy model. Each group was divided into three days group 7 days, 14 days and 28 days group, respectively after 3 days, 7 days, 14 days and 28 days, drawn; four groups at each observation point drawn. Four groups of the same feeding conditions. Acupuncture methods: election Ren, Du acupuncture points, respectively, to give quick stab the needle for needle retention 30min, once a day. Normal control group and model control group without acupuncture treatment. Two hours before each group of animals drawn by intraperitoneal injection of Brdu (5 - bromo-deoxy-uridine) is used to mark neural stem cell proliferation. Model, 3d, 7d, 14d and 28d, the use of neurological deficit scores and HE staining animals symptoms of neurological function and brain damage pathological changes; immunohistochemical observation of ischemia and hypoxia in rats hippocampus dentate gyrus ( DG), subependymal zone (SVZ) of 5 - bromo-deoxyuridine the nucleoside (Brdu) Nestin (Nestin) changes in the number of neural stem cells and their proliferation after the detection of cerebral ischemia and hypoxia, to evaluate speed thorn, stay for the effect of neural stem cells after cerebral hypoxic-ischemic injury. Results: 1, speed thorns, stay HIE rats neurological deficit scores: by Kruskal-Walhs test (Excluding the normal control group), each operated rats 28 days after symptoms of neurological function than one day significantly reduce (P lt; 0.01). Symptoms of nerve function in pairwise comparisons between groups, the speed the thorn groups and needle retention rats 14,17,21,28 days after surgery compared with the model group significantly reduced compared with the model group, a significant difference (P lt; 0.05). 2, speed stabbed and left for HIE rat brain tissue morphology: model control group: the left brain hippocampus visible focal necrosis, necrotic area the nucleus narrowing was hardened necrosis surrounding normal tissue structure hierarchy is clear; left brain the occipital cortex foreseeable fuzzy area of ??necrosis of large areas of organizational structure; speed thorn treatment groups: most of the degeneration of nerve cells in the brain, a small amount of brain cell degeneration and necrosis; needle retention treatment groups: most of the nerve cells in the brain is still good, and a small amount of brain cell degeneration and necrosis, 3 speed thorn and stay against the the HIE model of rat brain tissue of BrdU protein expression: Compared with the normal control group, model control group rat brain DG and SVZ of BrdU protein expression was significantly increased (P lt; 0.01); speed thorn needle retention can BrdU protein upregulation. Increased speed thorn treatment group and the needle for the treatment group the BrdU protein expression (P lt; 0.01), compared with the model group, statistically significant. Speed ??thorn treatment group and stay needle treatment group comparison, the postoperative 3d, 7d BrdU protein expression without significant significant difference (P gt; 0.05), postoperative 14d, 28dBrdU protein's expression has significant significant difference (P lt; 0.05), needle retention The treatment group was significantly higher than the speed thorn treatment group. 4 speed thorn and stay Nestin protein expression for the the HIE model of rat brain tissue: normal control group compared with the model control group rat brain DG and SVZ of Nestin protein expression was significantly increased (P lt; 0.01); with model control group speed thorn treatment group and stay acupuncture group Nestin protein expression (P lt; 0.01), with statistical significance. Speed ??thorn treatment group and stay acupuncture group compared with postoperative 3d, 7d Nestin protein no significant difference (P gt; 0.05), postoperative 14d.28dNestin protein expression with a significant difference (P lt; 0.05), needle retention The treatment group was significantly higher than the speed thorn treatment group. Conclusion: 1, speed thorn and stay acupuncture can promote HIE rehabilitation of limb function in rats, neurological deficit scores significantly improved. 2, speed thorn and stay acupuncture enables HIE rats the DG and SVZ of BrdU-positive cell proliferation more evident that speed the thorn and stay acupuncture so that these two regions increased proliferative activity. Speed ??thorn and stay acupuncture enables HIE rat DG and SVZ of Nestin-positive intracellular proliferation more obvious that speed thorn and stay acupuncture to promote the proliferation of neural stem cells. 4-speed thorn and stay acupuncture affect early undifferentiated neural stem cells HIE rats of the DG SVz District; stay acupuncture group than the speed needling group 14d and 28d. 5, the experimental results show that the speed thorn and stay acupuncture can promote the proliferation of neural stem cells after cerebral ischemia and hypoxia, differentiation and promote the repair of nerve cells and reduce the degree of functional deficit, this may be one of the important mechanism of acupuncture treatment HIE .
