In the experiment,the protective effects of electroacupuncture on gastrointestinal functions were investigated in rats after chemotherapy from gastrointestinal pathology and other respects. Results indicated that in rats after chemotherapy electroacupuncture could avoid that gastric mucosa thinned out and mural cells decreased, prevented necrosis of the intestinal mucosa epithelium and scaling of superficial glands, inhibited focal hyperplasia of intra-mucosal fibrous tissue. Electroacupuncture also could inhibit excitability of gastric mucosa and reduced the sensitivity of stimulation of chemotherapeutic agents. Therefore, it plays the role of protecting the gastrointestine.
