Recent Citation Utilizing EagleBio’s BI-CAT ELISA:
Hypertension is one of the most common clinical disorders in the world and there is a great need to search for a therapy that offers minimal adverse effects. There is also a need for targeted approaches directed at the underlying mechanisms of hypertension.
The objective of this study was to examine effectiveness of electroacupuncture (EA) at select acupoints to reduce systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressures (DBP) in hypertensive patients. Eagle Biosciences’ BI-CAT ELISA was to measure norepinephrine, and epinephrine for assessing secondary outcomes examining underlying mechanisms of acupuncture with plasma concentrations before and after 8 weeks of treatment. After
treatment, the plasma concentration of norepinephrine, which was initially elevated, was decreased by 41%;
likewise, renin was decreased by 67% and aldosterone by 22%.
This study revealed that EA at select acupoints reduces blood pressure. Sympathetic and renin-aldosterone systems were likely related to the long-lasting EA actions.
