Özet

Objectives: Wet-cupping therapy is one of the oldest known medical techniques. Although it is widely used in various conditions such as acute \ chronic inflammation, infectious diseases, and immune system disorders, its mechanism of action is not fully known. In this study, we investigated the oxidative status as the first step to elucidate possible mechanisms of action of wet cupping.
