Abstract Objective: To study the clinical efficacy of acupuncture for ischemic stroke and its effect on ET-1 levels in IS cases. Method: The 63 cases were randomized into a treatment group (31 cases), receiving acupuncture and routine method, and control group (32 cases), receiving routine method alone. Seven days constitute a course of treatment, a 2-day interval between two courses. The clinical efficacy and ET-1 level in two groups were compared after four weeks. Result: The total effective rate in the treatment group and control group were 96.8% and 75% respectively, with a statistical significance (P.<0.05); the ET-1 level in blood plasma also with a statistical significance after the treatment (P<0.05); the pre-treatment and post-treatment ET-1 level in the treatment group showed a statistical significance (P<0.01), whereas the control group didn't. Conclusion: Acupuncture is effective for ischemic stroke and can lower the ET-1 level in ischemic stroke cases.
