Abstract

Objective: To observe the therapeutic effect of acupuncture therapy for treatment of chronic atrophic gastritis. Methods: According to the theory of TCM, 36 cases of chronic atrophic gastritis were differentiated and treated by acupuncture. Gastroscopy and electrogastrograph (EGG) of the body surface, gastric acid and pepsin, blood gastrin, blood prostaglandin E (PGE), gastric mucosal cells and G cells are recorded. Results: Acupuncture therapy had a better effect in improving clinical symptoms, the markedly effective rate was 97. 2% and the disappearing rate of clinical manifestations 97.02%; after acupuncture treatment, blood PGE concentration increased; gastric acid secretion increased; gastric dynamics was enhanced and the amplitude of EGG rose; acupuncture could significantly facilitate secretion of gastrin. Conclusion: Acupuncture is a convenient treatment method for atrophic gastritis with quick effect and without side effects.
