  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.

  Title Gender-Related Differences in Outcomes on Acupuncture and Moxibustion Treatment Among Depression Patients Type of Study Journal Article
  Year 2015 Publication Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine Abbreviated Journal Journal of Alternative & Complementary Medicine  
  Volume 21 Issue 11 Pages 673-680  
  Keywords MENTAL depression -- Treatment; Acupuncture; ACUPUNCTURE points; ALTERNATIVE medicine; ANALYSIS of variance; CHI-squared test; MENTAL depression; HAMILTON Depression Inventory; LONGITUDINAL method; Mathematics; Moxibustion; MULTIVARIATE analysis; Nosology; PROBABILITY theory; PSYCHOLOGICAL tests; QUALITY of life; RESEARCH -- Finance; SAMPLING (Statistics); SEX distribution (Demography); T-test (Statistics); SAMPLE size (Statistics); STATISTICAL power analysis; RANDOMIZED controlled trials; TREATMENT effectiveness; PRE-tests & post-tests; REPEATED measures design; BLIND experiment; DATA analysis -- Software; DESCRIPTIVE statistics; MANN Whitney U Test; China  
  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 evaluate the effect of acupuncture on endemic skeletal fluorosis (ESF) through the randomized controlled trial. Methods. Ninety-nine cases were divided into the treatment group (68 cases) and the control group (31 cases) randomly. Normal acupuncture combined with electroacupuncture was used in treatment group, while Caltrate with vitamin D tablets were applied in control group. After 2 courses, the VAS, urinary fluoride, serum calcium, and serum phosphate were evaluated before and after treatment. Results. Both of these two methods could relieve pain effectively and the effect of acupuncture was better (P < 0.05). In treatment group, the content of urinary fluoride after treatment was higher than before (P < 0.05), while the content of serum calcium and phosphate was lower (P < 0.05). Conclusion. The effect of acupuncture on relieving pain and promoting discharge of urinary fluoride is better than that of western medicine. Acupuncture can reduce the content of serum calcium and phosphate.

  Title Clinical observation on effect of scalp electroacupuncture for mild cognitive impairment Type of Study RCT
  Year 2013 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

  Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the therapeutic effect of scalp electroacupuncture for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in the early stage. 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.

  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 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.
