Reflex Neural Circuitry Is Involved in Pancreatitis and Pancreatic Cancer.

Reflex Neural Circuitry Acupuncture Treats the Root of Pancreatic Diseases.

Reflex Neural Circuitry Acupuncture Modulates Neuro-immuno-endocrine Signaling to Control Inflammation and Pain in Pancreas.


Clinical evidences show acupuncture is an effective technique for pancreas health care. Acupuncture is an effective integrative, alternative, and complementary treatment for pancreatic disorders.


Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease with poor prognosis. Inflammatory processes have emerged as key mediators of pancreatic cancer development and progression. Chronic pancreatitis contributes to tumorigenesis. Inflammation plays pivotal role in the initiation and progression of pancreatic cancer.

Pancreatic cancer has the poorest prognosis of any cancer. Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States.


The pancreas consists of two functional components. The exocrine pancreas releases digestive enzymes and bicarbonate into the duodenum. The endocrine pancreas secretes hormones, including insulin, glucagon, ghrelin, pancreatic polypeptide, and somatostatin. Both components of the pancreas are innervated by the autonomic nervous system, and regulated by the separate pathways for normal activity.


Pain arising from pancreatic diseases can become chronic and difficult to treat. Pancreatic pain is usually very difficult to treat with conventional analgesics. Neurogenic inflammation contributes to pancreatitis development and pancreatic pain.


Neurogenic inflammation has been described in numerous tissues, including the skin, joints, eye, middle ear, dura mater and in the respiratory, genitourinary, reproductive and digestive systems. Neurogenic inflammation may not only be a pathophysiological mechanism leading to disease, but forms part of the tissue response to injury.
