Title The Efficacy of Acupuncture for Treating Depression-Related Insomnia Compared with a Control Group: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Type of Study Systematic Review
Year 2017 Publication (up) BioMed Research International Abbreviated Journal Biomed Res Int
Volume 2017 Issue Pages 9614810
Keywords AcuTrials; Systematic Review; Sleep Disorders; Sleep Initiation and Maintenance Disorder; Insomnia; Depression
Abstract Objective. To evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture as monotherapy and as an alternative therapy in treating depression-related insomnia. Data Source. Seven databases were searched starting from 1946 to March 30, 2016. Study Eligibility Criteria. Randomized-controlled trials of adult subjects (18-75 y) who had depression-related insomnia and had received acupuncture. Results. 18 randomized-controlled clinical trials (RCTs) were introduced in this meta-analysis. The findings determined that the acupuncture treatment made significant improvements in PSQI score (MD = -2.37, 95% CI -3.52 to -1.21) compared with Western medicine. Acupuncture combined with Western medicine had a better effect on improving sleep quality (MD = -2.63, 95% CI -4.40 to -0.86) compared with the treatment of Western medicine alone. There was no statistical difference (MD = -2.76, 95% CI -7.65 to 2.12) between acupuncture treatment and Western medicine towards improving the HAMD score. Acupuncture combined with Western medicine (MD = -5.46, CI -8.55 to -2.38) had more effect on improving depression degree compared with the Western medicine alone. Conclusion. This systematic review indicates that acupuncture could be an alternative therapy to medication for treating depression-related insomnia.

Title Randomized, placebo-controlled trial of K1 acupoint acustimulation to prevent cisplatin-induced or oxaliplatin-induced nausea Type of Study Journal Article
Year 2015 Publication (up) Cancer Abbreviated Journal
Volume 121 Issue 1 Pages 84-92
Keywords AcuTrials; Neoplasms; Chemotherapy Side Effects; Nausea; Cancer; Antineoplastic Agents; Liver Cancer; Acu + Usual Care Versus Sham + Usual Care; Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation; Tens; TCM Acupuncture Style; Fixed Acupuncture Protocol; Sham Control; Non Penetrating Sham, Electrical; Sham Acupoint Control; Rct
Abstract BACKGROUND: Greater than 70% of patients with cancer experience chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. In the current study, the authors examined the effects of electrostimulation of the K1 acupoint located on the sole of the foot because it is believed to have the potential to control chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting. METHODS: In this trial, 103 patients diagnosed with primary or metastatic liver cancer were recruited before transcatheter arterial infusion (TAI) of cisplatin or oxaliplatin and randomized to either group A (51 patients who were treated with the antiemetic tropisetron and acustimulation at the K1 acupoint for 20 minutes approximately 1 to 2 hours before TAI on the first day and then daily for the subsequent 5 days) or group B (52 patients who were treated with tropisetron and electrostimulation at a placebo point on the heel). The rate, intensity, and duration of nausea and vomiting were collected at baseline and then daily for 5 days after TAI. Quality of life was assessed daily using the MD Anderson Symptom Inventory and the EuroQoL scale. RESULTS: No differences were found between groups A and B with regard to the incidence and degree of nausea or vomiting on day 1 or the following 5 days. Patients in group A had better EuroQoL scores compared with patients in group B (72.83 in group A vs 65.94 in group B; P =.04) on day 4 but not on the other days. No group differences were noted at any time point for MD Anderson Symptom Inventory scores. CONCLUSIONS: Electrostimulation of K1 combined with antiemetics did not result in initial prevention of cisplatin-induced or oxaliplatin-induced nausea or vomiting.

Title Non-invasive treatment to grade 1 essential hypertension by percutaneous laser and electric pulse to acupoint with music: A randomized controlled trial Type of Study Journal Article
Year 2016 Publication (up) Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine Abbreviated Journal Chin J Integr Med
Volume 22 Issue 9 Pages 696-703
Keywords grade 1 essential hypertension; laser and electric pulse stimulation to acupoint; multi-mode audio frequency pulse photoelectric therapeutic apparatus; musical treatment
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study a non-drug therapy for hypertension disease by combining percutaneous laser and electric pulse stimulation to acupoint with music, and to test the efficiency of the combining treatment to grade 1 essential hypertension. METHODS: A total of 174 patients with grade 1 essential hypertension were randomly assigned to 3 groups with a random number table after Chinese medicine (CM) syndrome differentiation: the photoelectric and musical treatment group (Group 1, with a self-developed multi-mode audio frequency pulse photoelectric therapeutic apparatus), acupuncture group (Group 2), and oral placebo group (Group 3), 58 cases per group. The curative effect of each group was evaluated by the changes of blood pressure and CM syndrome integral before and after treatment. RESULTS: Compared with Group 3, there were significant decrease of blood pressure and CM syndrome integral in Group 1 and Group 2 (P<0.01). Compared with Group 2, Group 1 showed the highest decrease in systolic pressure (P<0.017). The total effective rate of anti-hypertension in Group 1 (91.38%, 53/58) was significantly higher than that in Group 2 (74.13%, 43/58) and Group 3 (18.97%, 11/58, P<0.05 or P<0.01); and that in Group 2 was also significantly higher than that in Group 3 (P<0.01). There were significant difference in the total effective rate of CM syndrome integral in both Group 1 (93.10%, 54/58) and Group 2 (84.48%, 49/58) as compared with Group 3 (17.24%, 10/58, P<0.01), while there was no significant difference between Group 1 and Group 2 (P>0.05). CONCLUSIONS: The multi-mode audio frequency pulse photoelectric therapeutic apparatus, combining music, laser and electric pulse stimulation, is clinically useful for grade 1 essential hypertension. This “three in one” therapy method is non-invasive, easy and simple to handle. It is expected to be popularized as a new alternative treatment.

Title The Preventive and Therapeutic Effect of Acupuncture for Radiation-Induced Xerostomia in Patients With Head and Neck Cancer: A Systematic Review Type of Study Systematic Review
Year 2012 Publication (up) Integrative cancer therapies Abbreviated Journal Integr Cancer Ther
Volume Issue Pages -
Keywords AcuTrials; Systematic Review; Neoplasms; Xerostomia; Acupuncture; Dry Mouth; Cancer
Abstract Background. METHODS: Some studies suggest that acupuncture may be beneficial. Objectives. The authors evaluated the preventive and therapeutic effect of acupuncture for radiation-induced xerostomia among patients with head and neck cancer. Methods. PUBMED, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, CBM, CAJD, Wan Fang database, and VIP Database for Chinese Technical Periodicals were electronically searched, in conjunction with further manual search for relevant articles. Studies that met the inclusion criteria were systematically evaluated. RESULTS: Three randomized controlled trials (RCTs) investigating the therapeutic effect of acupuncture were included. One RCT on the preventive effect of acupuncture was found. Because of the considerable variation among included studies, meta-analysis was not possible. Two included RCTs used placebo controls, and both observed significant improvement in the salivary flow rates between acupuncture and control groups. However, no significant differences were found. Three included RCTs suggested that acupuncture for radiation-induced xerostomia can improve patients' subjective symptoms. The only study evaluating the preventive effect of acupuncture for radiation-induced xerostomia showed positive changes in salivary flow rates (both unstimulated and stimulated) and dry mouth -related symptoms. Acupuncture treatment was well tolerated by all patients and no severe adverse effects were seen. CONCLUSIONS: Insufficient evidence is available to judge whether acupuncture is safe and whether it is effective in preventing or treating radiation-induced xerostomia. Significant research remains to be done before acupuncture can be recommended for routine use in radiation-induced xerostomia.

Abstract Objective: Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and hepatic fat deposition are the most important risk factors for women's health. Acupuncture, including electroacupuncture (EA), is used to treat obesity throughout the world. The effect of EA is evaluated mainly by body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC). Few studies have assessed its effect in reducing VAT volume and hepatic fat fraction (HFF) based on an exact measurement method such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This study aimed to resolve this issue. Methods: Thirty subjects were randomly divided into two groups. The control group ( n = 15) did not receive any intervention and maintained a normal diet and their usual exercise habits. The treatment group ( n = 15) received EA three times a week for 3 months. BMI and WC were measured using different devices. VAT and HFF were measured by MRI and calculated by related software before and after the intervention. Results: A marked difference was evident in group that received EA treatment in the following tests. The differences in BMI (U = 21.00, p < 0.001), WC (U = 40.50, p = 0.002), VAT volume (U = 13.00, p < 0.001), and mean HFF (U = 0.00, p < 0.001) before and after the intervention in the treatment group were distinct and significant compared with those of the control group. Three months later, the treatment group showed a lower BMI (W = 91.00, p = 0.001), WC ( t = 4.755, p < 0.001), VAT volume ( t = 5.164, p < 0.001), and mean HFF (W = 120.00, p = 0.001) compared with pretreatment levels. Compared with the control group, the treatment group showed a lower VAT volume ( t = 60.00, p = 0.029) after 3 months of treatment. After 3 months, the control group showed higher mean HFF ( t = ?2.900, p = 0.012) and VAT volume (W = 11.50, p = 0.006) compared with their initial levels. Conclusion: Based on MRI evaluation, this randomized controlled study proved that EA treatment reduces BMI and WC as well as VAT volume and HFF in women with abdominal obesity.

Abstract Objectives: This study sought to (1) assess the effectiveness of acupuncture and moxibustion with a method of soothing the liver and regulating the mind on the quality of life among patients with depression and (2) study the sex differences of acupuncture and moxibustion in the treatment of depression on the basis of patient-reported outcomes. Methods: In a single-blind, randomized, controlled trial conducted in Guangdong Province, China, in January and December 2010, 163 patients who met the criteria for depression were enrolled. Eligible patients were allocated to three treatment groups (soothing liver and regulating mind group, acupoint shallow puncturing group, and non-acupoint shallow puncturing group). In all three groups, the treatment was given twice a week for 12 weeks. The Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAMD) and Symptom Checklist 90 (SCL90) were used to quantitatively assess patients before and 1 and 3 months after treatment. Results: Non-statistically significant differences in the acupuncture and moxibustion therapeutic effects of soothing liver and regulating mind treatment were found between men and women ( p>0.05). An item-by-item analysis of the SCL90 and HAMD scores showed sex differences between the efficacy of the soothing liver and regulating mind group and the group receiving acupoint shallow puncturing. Women obtained lower scores in somatization, interpersonal relationship, anxiety, terror, and extremeness items and HAMD scores in the soothing liver and regulating mind group than in the acupoint shallow puncturing group ( p<0.05), while men showed no significant differences between the soothing liver and regulating mind group and the acupoint shallow puncturing group ( p>0.05). Conclusions: The therapeutic effect of soothing liver and regulating mind is similar for both sexes, but women were more sensitive to the efficacy of the soothing liver and regulating mind treatment compared with other methods. These findings could indicate an important issue to consider for the different acupuncture and moxibustion treatments for depression in men and women.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of different lengths of needle-retaining time on the therapeutic results of acupuncture treatment for ischemic wind-stroke. METHODS: According to the severity of disease, 251 cases of ischemic wind-stroke were randomly divided into 3 groups and treated by acupuncture, with the needle-retaining time lasting 20, 40, and 60 minutes respectively. Observation was mainly focused on the scores of nervous dysfunction and the clinical therapeutic results. RESULTS: The comparison of the scores of nervous dysfunction in the 3 groups before and after the treatment showed that under Wilcoxon's pair-match symbol rank test, except for horizontal gaze, other indexes all showed significant differences (P < 0.01). In the between-group comparison before and after the treatment, there showed significant or very significant differences in the indexes of myodynamia of the upper limb, myodynamia of hand and the total scores (P < 0.05, P < 0.01). In the between-group comparison by Mann-Whitney rank test of the indexes of myodynamia of upper limb, myodynamia of hand and the total scores, the 20-min. group and the 60-min. group showed significant differences (P < 0.05); and 40-min. group and 60-min. group showed significant differences in myodynamia of upper limb (P < 0.05). In comparison of the therapeutic effects of the 3 groups by Kruskal-wallis rank test, there showed very significant differences (P < 0.01). In the between-group comparison by Mann-Whitney rank test, the 40-min.group and 60-min. group showed significant differences (P = 0.013); while the 20-min. group and 60-min. group showed very significant differences (P = 0.000). CONCLUSION: There is a time-effect relationship between the length of needle-retaining time and the therapeutic effects of acupuncture for ischemic wind-stroke

METHODS: Two hundred and thirty three MCI patients were randomly divided into three groups: the drug group, the scalp electroacupuncture group, and the syndrome differentiation group. For the scalp electroacupuncture group, the points of Baihui (DU 20), Sishecong (EX-HN1), Fengchi (GB 20), and Shenting (DU 24) were selected. For the syndrome differentiation group, specific acupoints were added on the basis of syndrome differentiation and according to the scale for the differentiation of syndromes in vascular dementia (SDSVD) beside the acupoints used in the scalp electroacupuncture group. For the drug group, nimodipine was orally administered. Each patient was treated for two courses, eight weeks. The score differences in mini-mental state examination (MMSE), picture recognition, and clock drawing test were observed before and after the treatment. RESULTS: After treatment, the score differences in MMSE and clock drawing test were of obvious statistical significance among three groups (P<0.01, P<0.05). The score differences in picture recognition were of extremely statistical significance between the scalp electroacupuncture group and the syndrome differentiation group (P<0.01), while the difference was not found in the drug group (P>0.05). There were statistical significant differences in therapeutic effects between the scalp electroacupuncture group and the drug group, and between the syndrome differentiation group and the drug group (P<0.05), while no statistical difference was found between scalp electroacupuncture group and the syndrome differentiation group (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: All the three therapies may improve the cognitive function of MCI patients. The therapeutic effects in the scalp electroacupuncture and syndrome differentiation groups were basically the same, but superior to nimodipine.
