Abstract:

As a complex pathological process, immune inflammatory reaction plays an important role in the injury by cerebral ischemia. Inflammatory mediators can promote each other to coregulate the immune inflammatory reaction. Inflammatory cytokines play a pivotal role in regulating the immune inflammatory reaction process. Chinese herbs and acupuncture can exert a protective effect against neuronal damage by cerebral ischemia by inhibiting the production and expression of inflammatory cytokines and adhesion molecules, effectively blocking the inflammatory reaction and reducing the apoptosis of nerve cells.

Keywords: Cerebral ischemia, Inflammation cytokines, Chinese herbs, Acupuncture.
