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.
