The rule and characteristics of clinical acupoint selection were explored in treatment of puerperal insufficient lactation with acupuncture and moxibustion. The clinical articles on the treatment of puerperal insufficient lactation with acupuncture and moxibustion were retrieved from the databases of CNKI, VIP and Wanfang from the date of establishment to June 1, 2019. The articles were screened in accordance with the inclusion and exclusion criteria. The prescriptions of acupuncture and moxibustion were extracted and normalized. Using Microsoft Excel 2016 software, the use frequency, meridians involved and acupoint distributions were analyzed. Using SPSS Statistics 21.0 software, the cluster and factor analyses were conducted. Totally, 102 articles were included,108 acupoint prescriptions were extracted, 65 acupoitns were designed and the total use frequency was 654 times. The top three acupoints used in treatment of puerperal insufficient lactation were Danzhong (CV 17), Rugen (ST 18) and Shaoze (SI 1). The most frequently involved meridians were the stomach meridian, the conception vessel, the small intestine meridian and the liver meridian. The acupoints were mainly distributed in the chest and four extremities. It was showed in cluster analysis that Rugen (ST 18), Shaoze (SI 1), Zusanli (ST 36) and Danzhong (CV 17) represent 3 clusters and a total of 7 common factors were extracted. The acupoint selection is based on syndrome differentiation in treatment of puerperal insufficient lactation with acupuncture and moxibustion, of which, the local acupoints are predominated and the distal acupoints are combined.

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) intervention on hyperplastic mammary glands, serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P) contents, estrogen receptor alpha (ERα) and progesterone receptor (PR) expression of breast tissues in mammary gland hyperplasia (MGH) rats, so as to reveal its mechanisms underlying improvement of MGH. METHODS: Sixty female SD rats were randomly divided into control, model, EA, EA+ovariectomy(OVX) and EA+sham-OVX groups (n=12 in each). The MGH model was established by injection of Estradiol Benzoate injection (0.5 mg/kg, once daily for 25 d) and P injection (0.5 mg/kg, once daily for 5 d after estradiol injection) into the medial hind-leg muscle. After model establishment, bilateral OVX was performed for rats of the EA+OVX group, and sham OVX (only exposure of ovaries) was performed for rats of the EA+sham OVX group. EA (2 Hz, 2 mA) was applied to bilateral "Tianzong"(SI 11), "Ganshu"(BL 18), "Zusanli" (ST 36) for point group A, and "Wuyi"(ST 15), "Hegu"(LI 4), "Danzhong" (CV 17) for point group B for 20 min, once daily, 5 days a week for 4 weeks. The two acupoint groups were used alternately. The height of the rats' nipples (the 2nd pairs) were measured. Serum E2 and P levels were assayed by ELISA. The expression of ERα and PR in mammary tissues was detected by immunofluorescence staining and Western blot, separately. RESULTS: The height of nipples, serum E2content, and mammary ERα protein expression level were significantly higher in the model group than in the control group (P0.05), suggesting an important role of the ovary in producing EA's effect. CONCLUSION: EA intervention can improve hyperplastic mammary glands by down-regulating serum E2content and mammary ERα protein expression, and up-regulating serum P content and PR expression in MGH rats, which has a close relation with the intact ovaries.
