Electro acupuncture (EA) with a high frequency of 100 Hertz (HZ) at ST36 (Zusanli) acupoint is capable of stimulating interferon gamma (IFN-γ) as an phagocytosis activator through substance P (SP) in hyperglycemic conditions. EA at High frequency (100 Hz) ST36 acupoint administered in hyperglycemic rats daily for seven and fourteen days consecutively. Examination of SP and IFN-γ levels using enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) method with blood serum. The results indicated that EA with high frequency of 100 Hz on ST36 able to increase IFN-γ through SP.
