Abstract: 目的:观察电针刺激“足三里”穴位对大鼠神经病理性疼痛的影响,及电针治疗对大鼠背根神经节中p38丝裂原活化蛋白激酶(p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase,p38 MAPK)信号转导途径的影响.方法:40只雄性Wistar大鼠随机均分为4组(n=10):空白对照组(Con组);坐骨神经结扎组(CCI组);假电针治疗组(CCI+A组);电针治疗组(CCI+EA组).分别于实验前及坐骨神经结扎后第7、14、21 d,观察并记录大鼠的热缩足反射潜伏期(paw withdrawal latency,PWL)和机械缩足反应阈值(paw withdrawal threshold,PWT)变化和大鼠受累后肢的运动功能评分.在实验结束(即第21 d)时,处死大鼠,取出右侧L4~6节段的背根神经节,之后采用免疫组化的方法检测大鼠背根神经节中p38MAPK蛋白的表达.结果:PWT和PWL在Con组中没有变化,而在CCI组和CCI+A组中显著降低,并持续至实验结束.CCI+EA组在电针治疗后PWT和PWL与CCI组和CCI+A组相比显著升高(P<0.05).电针治疗后,CCI+EA组大鼠受累后肢的运动评分显著低于CCI+A组和CCI组(P<0.05).免疫组化结果显示:CCI+EA组大鼠背根神经节中的磷酸化p38MAPK (phosphor-p38 MAPK,p-p38 MAPK)阳性细胞表达均显著低于CCI组和CCI+A组(P<0.05).结论:电针刺激“足三里”穴位能够减轻神经病理性疼痛大鼠的热痛和机械痛,改善大鼠受累后肢的运动功能评分;电针抑制CCI大鼠背根神经节中p38MAPK的表达.
