Key Words Crohn’s disease; Herb-partitioned moxibustion; Acupuncture; Intestinal epithelial cells; Tight junction proteins
Core Tip Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory condition involving all layers of the gastrointestinal tract. Although its etiopathogenesis remains unclear, increased permeability of the intestinal epithelial barrier is one of the crucial factors in CD onset. Tight junctions (TJs) within intestinal epithelial cells form the structural basis of the intestinal epithelial barrier, and reduced expression of TJ proteins is positively correlated with CD severity. This study investigated the therapeutic effect of herb-partitioned moxibustion combined with acupuncture on CD. We found that this treatment upregulated the expression of intestinal epithelial TJ proteins and their mRNAs.
