History of Modern Acupuncture Research in China. Xiaoding Cao. State Key Laboratory of Medical Neurobiology and Department of Integrative Medicine and Neurobiology Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University, Shanghai 200032, P.R. China. Summary This chapter will review the history of modern acupuncture research in China. The concept of “channels” and “collaterals” has been used for a long time in the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Clinical acupuncture yields therapeutic effects on many diseases, according to the general principles of “channels” and “collaterals”. In the past 5 decades, acupuncture research has been very popular in many major Chinese medical institutions, among which Shanghai Medical College of Fudan University (formerly Shanghai First Medical College, and then, Shanghai Medical University) has made substantial contribution to this field. Comprehensive scientific data obtained from normal subjects, patients, and animals have shown that needling of acupuncture points activates the afferent fibers of the peripheral nerves to elicit the De-Qi sensation, and subsequently, the nerve-mediated signals ascend to various levels of the central nervous system (CNS), producing analgesic effect. The pain relief is the most effective outcome of acupuncture treatment. As acupuncture enhances the analgesics’ effect of pain relief, the combination of acupuncture with small doses of analgesic drugs is now being adopted in the management of various types of pain and surgical anesthesia. In addition, clinical and bench studies on acupuncture therapy of other neurological diseases, such as epilepsy, cerebral ischemia, neuroimmune disorders, and woman’s reproductive disorders have also been successfully carried out in the recent years. This chapter will briefly summarize the research progress and present an overall picture of acupuncture research in China. Keywords acupuncture research, traditional Chinese medicine, history, mechanism, progress. ...
