Abstract in Portuguese
Estudaram-se os efeitos da influência do Reiki na evolução do granuloma induzido experimentalmente pela inoculação do BCG no coxim plantar de hamsters, assim como os efeitos da mesma terapia em camundongos portadores do tumor ascítico de Ehrlich in vivo e in vitro. No modelo de inflamação granulomatosa crônica, utilizou-se 40 hamsters machos, os quais após serem inoculados com BCG no dia 0 no coxim da pata posterior direita, foram separados em dois grupos contendo 20 animais em cada. Um grupo denominado controle o qual não recebeu nenhum tratamento, e um grupo denominado Reiki, o qual recebeu reiki por 15 minutos, diariamente, a uma distância de 30 cm. Imediatamente antes da inoculação foi realizada a medida do diâmetro da pata a ser inoculada, sendo que as medições continuaram até o momento do sacrifício dos animais, sendo realizadas em dias alternados. No modelo de tumor ascítico de Ehrlich, foram utilzadas 26 camundongos fêmeas, as quais foram injetadas com células de Tumor de Ehrlich pela via intraperitoneal, sendo este considerado dia 0 do experimento. Em seguida estes camundongos foram separados em 3 grupos: controle (n=8), reiki A (n=9) e reiki B (n=9). Grupo controle não recebeu nenhum tipo de tratamento, grupo Reiki A recebeu reiki por 10 minutos, diariamente, à uma distância de 30 cm e grupo Reiki B recebeu manipulação e uma técnica diferente de Reiki. Os animais então foram observados diariamente até o dia de óbito. Em relação ao edema de pata, foi observada diminuição deste nos hamsters inoculados com BCG e tratados com Reiki. Com respeito à avaliação da taxa de sobrevida em camundongos com tumor ascítico de Ehrlich, observou-se maior taxa de sobrevida nos camundongos inoculados pertencentes ao grupo Reiki A.

Abstract in English
We studied the effects of the influence of Reiki in the evolution of the experimental induced granuloma by the inoculation of BCG in the footpad of hamsters, and the effects of the same therapy in mice with Ehrlich ascitic tumor in vivo and in vitro. In the chronic granulomatous inflammation model, it was used, 40 male hamsters, which, after been inoculated with BCG in day 0, it was separated in two groups with 20 animals per group: control and reiki. The control group received no treatment, and reiki group, which was treated with Reiki by 15 minutes, daily, from 30 cm of the box. Immediately before the inoculation, the footpad diameter was measured, and after this measure was made in every other day, until complete 54 days. In the Ehrlich ascitic tumor model, it was used, 26 female mice inoculated with Ehrlich tumor cells, by intraperitoneal via, in the day 0. After that, the mice were separated in three groups: control (n=8), reiki A (n=9) and reiki B (n=9). The control group received no treatment, reiki A group received Reiki treatment by 10 minutes, daily, from 30 cm of the box, and reiki B group, which was manipulated and received a different way of Reiki treatment. The mice were observed daily until death in order to analyze survival rate. As regards granuloma evaluation it was observed a reduced footpad edema in hamsters inoculated with BCG and treated with Reiki. In relation to survival rate assay, it was observed an increased lifespan of those mice of the reiki A group.
