Aim of the study-To investigate the effects of meridian scraping on immune function and athletic ability in endurance training rats. Materials and methods-Twenty four adult male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly assigned to non-training group (A), training control group (B) or meridian scraping and training group (C). Rats in groups B and C were loaded with incremental endurance training for 7 weeks and body weight, indices of immune organs, levels of serum immunoglobulin G (IgG), IgM, IL-6, &beta-endorphin and time to strength exhaustion of rats in running plate on the first day of the 8th week, were measured. Results-Meridian scraping effectively modulated the changes in body weight and immune function induced by endurance training. Meridian scraping treatment also inhibited the training-induced decrease of serum IgG, but increased serum IL-6 and &beta -endorphin levels and prolonged the time to strength exhaustion. Conclusions-Meridian scraping increased the athletic ability of rats in endurance training, delayed the occurrence of sports fatigue and improved immune function.
