Effects of mild-warming moxibustion on Bcl-2 and PKC expressions of peripheral blood in elderly people

Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22594101

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To explore the anti-aging effects of mild-warming moxibustion on Bcl-2 and PKC expression in peripheral blood and general symptoms in elderly people.

METHODS:

A total of 61 elderly people and 30 non-elderly people were enrolled. The total effective rate of mild-warming moxibustion was assessed by symptom scores, and Bcl-2 and PKC expression in peripheral blood was detected by flow cytometry.

RESULTS:

The total effective rate in the mild-warming moxibustion group was significantly higher than in the blank control group (P < 0.01). Bcl-2 and PKC expression rates in peripheral blood in the blank control group were lower than in the normal control group (< 0.01), but higher after mild-warming moxibustion (P < 0.01).

CONCLUSION:

The anti-aging effects of mild-warming moxibustion may be due to increased Bcl-2 and PKC expression in peripheral blood in aged people.
