Figure 1 Study design of moxibustion treatment in ulcerative colitis rats. Blank control (BC) indicates control group with normal rats. Model replication (MR) is rat model of ulcerative colitis (UC). Waiting list control (WLC) is the control group in which UC rats did not receive moxibustion treatment. 3-min moxibustion (3M), 6-min moxibustion (6M) and 9-min moxibustion (9M) are 3-moxa, 6-moxa, and 9-moxa groups in which UC rats received different durations of moxibustion (3, 6 and 9 min) in each session (2 d). The whole moxibustion treatment course included 14 sessions from days 22 to 49. DAI: Disease activity index.
