Effects of ACTH(11–24), an ACTH receptor antagonist, on EA-produced inhibition of edema (n = 7 per group, mean ± SEM). All rats were CFA-inflamed. Note that ACTH(11–24) prevented EA-produced inhibition of edema 5 h post CFA. Edema was determined by increased paw thickness (mm). * P < 0.05 compared to vehicle plus sham EA.
