Effects of EA treatment on plasma ACTH levels (% changes vs baseline, n = 6 per group, mean ± SEM). EA treatment induced no significant changes of plasma ACTH in uninflamed rats. CFA-induced inflammation alone resulted in no significant changes in plasma ACTH levels. EA treatment in inflamed rats significantly increased ACTH levels compared to sham EA. *P < 0.05 compared to sham EA.
