  Title Therapeutic efficacy observation on acupuncture plus medication for rheumatoid arthritis Type of Study RCT

  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To observe the clinical efficacy of acupuncture plus medication for rhematic arthritis (RA). METHODS: A total of 80 RA cases were randomized into an observation group and a control group, 40 in each group. Cases in the observation group received antirheumatic agents and acupuncture therapy, whereas cases in the control group received antirheumatic agents alone. The therapeutic efficacies were observed after 3 sessions of treatment. RESULTS: After the treatment, patients in the observation group had significant improvement in their morning stiffness time, average grip of both hands, joint tenderness and joint swelling, showing statistical significances (P<0.01); symptoms of patients in the control group were also remarkably improved (P<0.01, P<0.05). Compared with the control group, the improvements in joint tenderness and average grip of both hands in the observation group were more significant (P<0.05). After treatment, the Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) points were significantly improved in both groups, erthrocyte sedimention rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP) in both groups were remarkably reduced (P<0.01, P<0.05); however, compared with the control group, the CRP decrease in the observation group was more significant (P<0.05). CONCLUSION: Acupuncture plus antirhematic agents can effectively increase the RA patients' activities of daily living (ADL) and thus improve their quality of life.

  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of “phased whole acupuncture therapy” on the ability of daily life (ADL) of the patients with cerebral infarction-induced hemiplegia. METHODS: 113 patients were randomly divided into a treatment group (n=63) treated with phased whole acupuncture and a control group (n=50) treated with traditional acupuncture. After the treatment, the improvement of ADL was compared between the two groups. RESULTS: Patients in the treatment group obtained satisfactory therapeutic effects in ADL improvement and in lowering of deformed rate, which were superior to those in the control group. CONCLUSION: The phased whole acupuncture is an effective therapy in treating cerebral infarction-induced hemiplegia, which can better improve the life quality of the patients

  Title Efficacy of acupuncture on fibromyalgia syndrome: a meta-analysis Type of Study Systematic Review
  Year 2014 Publication Journal of traditional Chinese medicine = Chung i tsa chih ying wen pan / sponsored by All-China Association of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine Abbreviated Journal J Tradit Chin Med  
  Volume 34 Issue 4 Pages 381-391  
  Keywords Systematic Review; Nervous System Diseases; Fibromyalgia; Acupuncture; Electroacupuncture; Moxibustion  
  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To comprehensively evaluate the effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for fibromyalgia syndrome. METHODS: Two review authors independently selected the trials for the Meta-analysis, assessed their methodological quality and extracted relevant data. A quality assessment was conducted according to the Cochrane Review Handbook 5.0. RevMan 5.0.20 software was used in the statistical analysis. RESULTS: A total of 523 trials were reviewed and 9 trials were selected for Meta-analysis. (a) Compared acupuncture with sham acupuncture, there was a significant difference in the visual analogue scale, but no difference in the pressure pain threshold. Additionally, and there was a difference in the fibromyalgia impact questionnaire and the multidisciplinary pain inventory after 4 weeks of treatment, but no difference after 7 weeks of therapy. There was no difference in the numerical rating scale in weeks 3, 8 and 13. (b) Acupuncture versus drugs. There were differences in the VAS after 20 days of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment comparing with the drug amitriptyline, and after 4 weeks of acupuncture and moxibustion treatment comparing with the drug fluoxetine and amitriptyline. There were also differences in the number of tender points when comparing acupuncture with amitriptyline or fluoxetine. There was no difference in total efficiency when comparing acupuncture with amitriptyline after 4 weeks of treatment, but there were differences between the two groups 45 days after treatment. There were also differences in total efficiency comparing acupuncture with fluoxetine, and when comparing 4 weeks post-treatment of acupuncture with a combination of amitriptyline, oryzanol and vitamin B. (c) A comparison of acupuncture, drugs and exercise with drugs and exercise showed PPT differences in months 3 and 6. There was no difference between the two comparison groups after follow-up visits in months 12 and 24. CONCLUSION: Compared with sham acupuncture, there was not enough evidence to prove the efficacy of acupuncture therapy for the treatment of fibromyalgia. Some evidence testified that the effectiveness of acupuncture therapy for fibromyalgia was superior to drugs; however, the included trials were not of high quality or had high bias risks. Acupuncture combined with drugs and exercise could increase pain thresholds in the short-term, but there is a need for higher quality randomized controlled trials to further confirm this.
