RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: There are few studies on the relationship between the frequency of acupuncture use and subjective health status. Therefore, we investigated this relationship using data of a previously performed cross-sectional survey of patients visiting Japanese acupuncture clinics. METHODS: This study used data from a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2011 on patients visiting 180 acupuncture clinics nationwide that were run by members of the alumni association of Meiji University of Integrative Medicine Faculty of Acupuncture and Moxibustion, and did not provide treatment other than acupuncture. We calculated the frequency of visits to acupuncture clinics (< 24 times, 24-47 times, 48-95 times, or ≥ 96 times per year) and the Short Form-36 (SF-36) summary scores (physical, mental, role/social) based on the response of the questionnaire conducted at the time of the survey. Multiple linear regression analysis with multiple imputation was performed with three SF-36 summary scores as the dependent variables, and the frequency of visits to acupuncture clinics as the independent variable. RESULTS: The questionnaire was distributed to 2,379 outpatients of acupuncture clinics, 1,409 of whom met the criteria and were included in the analysis. More frequent visits to acupuncture clinics were associated with lower scores on all three SF-36 summary scores. Compared to those who visited < 24 times a year, those who visited ≥ 96 times a year had unstandardized regression coefficients (95% confidence interval) of -5.6 (-7.8 to -3.3) for the physical, -2.0 (-3.9 to -0.1) for the mental, and -2.9 (-5.4 to -0.4) for the role/social SF-36. CONCLUSIONS: Frequent visits to acupuncture clinics were associated with poor subjective health status, especially physical health.

RESUMO

This paper introduces GAO Wei-bin's academic thought in treatment of medulla oblongata paralysis with acupuncture. Through analyzing the etiologies and locations of medulla oblongata paralysis, in accordance with "selecting the nearby acupoints of the affected area", the acupoints are selected from the nape region, the nape acupuncture therapy and the corresponding new points are developed. Based on the human anatomy of the nape region, the anatomic structures of new points (e.g. Gongxue, Tunyan-1, Tunyan-2, Fayin, Zhiqiang and Tiyan) and their effect mechanism are explained. The treatment principle, "distinguishing the symptoms from the root causes, mutual treatment for both symptoms and root causes", is proposed, and the importance of electric stimulation of nape acupuncture is suggested in treatment of medulla oblongata paralysis.

RESUMO

The paper introduces professor LIN Guo-hua's experience in treatment with acupuncture-moxibustion at "Dayingxiang". Based on the application of Neiyingxiang (internal LI 20), professor LIN defines the entire nasal cavity and its adjacent nasopharynx as "Dayingxiang", of which, "Neiyingxiang" and "Biyandian" (nasopharynx point) are commonly stimulated with acupuncture-moxibustion. "Dayingxiang" may regulate lung qi and promote the circulation of the marrow sea in treatment of the disorders of lung system and the marrow. Fire needling with twirling or burning-scallion technique is predominated in manipulation. "Neiyingxiang" is stimulated for the shallow-located disorders, while, "Biyandian" is for the deep-located ones. These two points are optioned alternatively or in combination to enhance the therapeutic effect.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: To systematically evaluate the general efficacy of nape acupuncture combined with rehabilitation training for the treatment of post-stroke dysphagia and in the recovery of swallowing function. METHODS: Three English databases (PubMed, Excerpta Medica Database, Cochrane Library) and three Chinese databases (China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Wanfang Data, CQVIP) were searched using the date range January 1, 2001-January 1, 2022. Study Selection: Randomized controlled trials (RCT) of nape acupuncture combined with rehabilitation for the treatment of dysphagia after stroke with appropriate evaluation methods were included in the study. RESULTS: The results indicated that nape acupuncture combined with rehabilitation training led to higher clinical effectiveness (odds ratio (OR) =4.25 and 95% confidence interval (CI)=[2.94, 6.15]), higher videofluoroscopic swallowing study scores(VFSS) (weighted mean difference (WMD)=1.33; 95% CI=[1.09, 1.58]), and lower Standardized Swallowing Assessment (SSA) scores (WMD = -2.57, 95% CI=[-3.51, -1.62]) in patients with post-stroke dysphagia compared with rehabilitation training alone. CONCLUSIONS: This Meta-analysis suggested that nape acupuncture combined with rehabilitation training is more effective in the treatment of dysphagia after stroke than rehabilitation alone.

RESUMO

PURPOSE: To determine the efficacy of acupuncture in patients with post-cataract surgery dry eye disease (DED). METHODS: Ninety participants with post-cataract surgery DED were randomly assigned (1:1) to receive true acupuncture (n = 44) or non-penetrating sham acupuncture (n = 46) twice weekly for 8 weeks. The primary outcome was the change from baseline to week 8 in the noninvasive tear film break-up time (TFBUT). Participants were followed until week 12. Secondary outcomes included Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) score, tear meniscus height (TMH), corneal fluorescein staining (CFS) score, meiboscore and corrected distance visual acuity (CDVA). RESULTS: The estimated mean change from baseline in the noninvasive TFBUT was 1.52 for true acupuncture versus 0.77 for sham acupuncture (adjusted difference -0.75 [95% CI -1.39 to -0.12]; P = 0.02) at week 8 and 1.49 for true acupuncture versus 0.81 for sham acupuncture (adjusted difference -0.68 [95% CI, -1.29 to -0.07]; P = 0.029) at week 12. The mean change in the OSDI score was -20.13 for true acupuncture versus -13.44 for sham acupuncture (adjusted difference 6.69 [95% CI, 0.64 to 12.74]; P = 0.031) at week 8, but revealed no statistically between-group differences at week 12. Mean changes in TMH, CFS score, meiboscore and CDVA did not differ significantly between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: Among patients with post-cataract surgery DED, acupuncture compared with sham acupuncture resulted in statistically significant benefit on tear film stability. TRIAL REGISTRATION: Chinese Clinical Trial Registry (ChiCTR1800020132).

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To observe the pressure pain threshold (PPT), skin conductance (SC) and blood perfusion (BP) of the sensitized acupoints in patients with knee osteoarthritis (KOA), and explore the mechanism of acupuncture at the sensitized acupoints for treating diseases. METHODS: Eleven healthy subjects and 11 unilateral KOA patients were recruited from July 2020 to March 2021 in this study. The PPT, SC and BP of control acupoints in healthy controls, and non-sensitized and sensitized acupoints in KOA patients were measured and compared between baseline and after manual acupuncture (MA) treatment. RESULTS: Before MA treatment, lower PPT was observed at the sensitized acupoints compared with non-sensitized and control acupoints (P<0.05). After MA treatment, PPT at the sensitized acupoints increased significantly in KOA patients (P<0.05). Before MA treatment, there was no statistical difference in SC and BP among control, non-sensitized and sensitized acupoints (P>0.05). Compared with the control and non-sensitized acupoints, there were significant increases of SC and BP in sensitized acupoints of KOA patients after MA treatment (P<0.05 or P<0.01). CONCLUSION: MA at sensitized acupoints could elevate PPT of KOA patients, which may be associated with the increment of SC and BP.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Acupuncture treatment on back-shu points (BSPs) has received attention owing its ability to control the function of visceral organs. We aimed to conduct a systematic review to provide detailed information on the effectiveness and safety of BL18, BL20, and BL22 on the digestive system in terms of soft tissue and anatomical structure and assist in the appropriate application. METHODS: Medline, Cochrane Library, EMBASE, OASIS, RISS, and CNKI were searched from their inception to July 2021. This systematic review included randomized controlled trials, controlled clinical trials, case series, and case reports that addressed anatomical structures or needling methods of BL18, BL20, and BL22. RESULTS: In total, 115 articles were included from the 7 electronic databases. One hundred eight articles described the depth and method. A total of 96 articles described depth, 86 articles described the angle, and 74 articles described both. Seventy-nine articles described the target muscles and anatomical structure. Acupuncture on BSP is effective in gastrointestinal diseases because of compression of the spinal nerve, sympathetic nerve hyperactivity, and connection of the diaphragm. By reviewing each study's acupuncture method and target muscles, we analyzed the angle and depth of the needle that effectively leads to therapeutic response. CONCLUSIONS: This study provides guidance on applying needles in terms of anatomical structures to yield therapeutic responses. However, few studies have assessed how to effectively stimulate BSP to trigger digestive effects and their mechanisms. Additional studies on the relationship between BSP and the digestive system are needed to use these acupoints for digestive diseases.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Leukopenia is one of most common types of myelosuppression secondary to chemotherapy. The main methods used to treat leukopenia after chemotherapy have various limitations. Several studies have reported the role of acupuncture in the prevention and treatment of leukopenia, but the quality of the study is uneven. Here, we used a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy and safety of acupuncture in the treatment of leukopenia after chemotherapy. METHODS: We searched the databases of the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), the Cochrane Library, Medline (via PubMed), EMBASE (via embase.com), the China National Knowledge Infrastructure Database (CNKI), the Chinese Biomedical Literature Database (CBM), the Chinese Scientific Journal Database (VIP database) and the Wanfang database to collect randomized clinical trials (RCTs) on acupuncture in the treatment of leukopenia after chemotherapy. Cochrane systematic reviewer manual 5.2 was used for bias risk assessment. RevMan5.3 statistical software was applied for statistical analysis. RESULTS: Fifteen RCTs were included in this study, with a total of 1130 patients. Meta-analysis results showed that acupuncture can increase white blood cell (WBC) count after chemotherapy [MD = 1.18, 95% CI (0.80, 1.57), P < .00001], reduce the incidence of myelosuppression [RR = 0.38, 95% CI (0.23, 0.63), P = .0002], and improve the clinical treatment effectiveness [RR = 1.20, 95% CI (1.00, 1.43), P = .05]. The differences were statistically significant. CONCLUSION: It is recommended to use acupuncture in the treatment of leukocytopenia after chemotherapy, but this result needs further research for verification.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Preclinical studies often provide the evidence base for clinical studies. However, the design and reporting of preclinical trial results are inadequate, resulting in poor reproducibility and clinical translatability. We aimed to systematically evaluate the methodology and reporting quality of animal studies of acupuncture for cancer pain. METHODS: About 7 databases were searched for animal research articles on acupuncture for cancer pain from the beginning of the database to January 31, 2022. ARRIVE guidelines, STRICTA, and SYRCLE risk of bias tools were used to assess the reporting quality and risk of bias of the selected studies. RESULTS: A total of 18 studies were evaluated. Of the 22 items on the SYRCLE tool, only 6 items had a positive reporting rate of more than 50%. Of the 39 items in the ARRIVE guidelines, 14 were rated excellent, and the least frequently reported checklist items were 7. Out of the 17 STRICTA checklist items analyzed, 10 were considered appropriately reported in more than 80% of the studies, while 4 were correctly reported in less than 20%. CONCLUSIONS: Some crucial points in the design, implementation, and reporting of the experiments included in the study were not well developed, which could significantly affect the clarity, reproducibility, and translatability of the experiments. There is a need to fully implement scientific tool guidelines for future experimental studies in order to improve the quality of preclinical studies and facilitate effective translation of their results to the clinic.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Acupuncture and moxibustion (AM) are utilized to treat Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, no bibliometric analysis has explored this issue. Thus, this study investigated the status, hotspots and trends of AM in the treatment of AD. METHODS: CiteSpace and VOSviewer softwares were used to analyze the literature on the AM for AD in the Web of Science Core Collection database. We analyzed the data of countries/regions, institutions, journals, authors, keywords, and cited references. RESULTS: After removing duplicates, 193 articles were retrieved. The number of publications on this topic has increased gradually. The most productive and collaborative country was China (143 documents), followed by South Korea (19). The top 3 active academic institutions were Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, Capital Medicine University, and Guangzhou University of Chinese Medicine. The most productive journal was Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (13 documents), followed by the Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience (10), Medicine (10), and Neural Regeneration Research (10). The top 3 co-cited journals were Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine (156 citations), Acupuncture Electro-therapeutics Research (152), and Acupuncture in Medicine (146). The research hotspots in this domain are dementia, memory, hippocampus, mouse models, and Parkinson's disease. Major frontiers are comparing the therapeutic effects of acupuncture and donepezil and electroacupuncture at different frequencies in this field. CONCLUSION: This bibliometric study identified relevant hotspots and trends in research on AM in the treatment of AD, which can provide researchers with key information in this domain and help further explore new research directions.

RESUMO

In bee venom pharmacopuncture (BVP), bee venom isolated from the venom sac of bees is injected into the acupoint or muscle associated with a disease. However, the histamine component in bee venom can cause adverse events; therefore, attention is required for BVP use. This study investigated the frequency, severity and characteristics of patients developing BVP-associated adverse events. The medical records of patients treated with BVP at Kyung Hee University Korean Medicine Hospital between 1 January 2013 and 1 May 2021 were reviewed. The demographic characteristics, disease-related characteristics, treatment-related characteristics and impressions of each patient were analyzed. In this study, &gt;50% of 4821 inpatients were hospitalized for neurological disorders. The mean age of the overall study population was 54.62 ± 16.38 years and 61% were women. The frequency of adverse events was 2.32%. The mean age in the adverse events group was 58.20 ± 16.10 years and 76% were women. Two patients experienced moderate adverse events, with no commonality between these events. Every patient recovered naturally with no sequelae. The results showed that BVP is a relatively safe therapeutic method. However, further studies are needed to determine the frequency of adverse events and identify the causality between baseline characteristics and adverse events.

RESUMO

The government of the Northern Song Dynasty collated and annotated Su Wen four times from 1026-1118. It examined a large number of errors in the collated edition by Wang Bing, and corrected the edition. However, for reasons of time and conditions, there still existed some mistakes, even serious ones, such as the selection of the original texts and the determination of the titles and many other details as well. Among these mistakes, the one which seriously prevented learning medical classics for following generations was that the quoted texts from early medical books were modified based on the Su Wen collated by Wang Bing and Jia Yi Jing on Acupuncture and Moxibustion. This led to the distortion of some early important medical books. This paper examines the re-collation of Su Wen by the officials of the Song Dynasty in a specific historical background and environment, focuses on the errors that have not been perceived today, and pays attention to the investigation and analysis of the causes of those errors, so as to provide a reference for collation of ancient medical classics today.

RESUMO

This paper summarizes professor GAO Shu-zhong's academic thought of acupuncture and moxibustion. Professor GAO studies classic literature and clarifies the authentic Chinese medicine from the origin. He provides the unique understandings on the theories, e.g "four passes", gaohuang, the flowing rule of nutrient and defensive qi, lung governing management and regulation and moxibustion for sinking of qi. By analyzing the differences in diagnosis and treatment between acupuncture and herbal medication therapies and exploring the syndrome/pattern differentiation, he advocates the rules of disorder differentiation and treatment in clinical practice of acupuncture and moxibustion, creates GAO 's three-promotion theory and summarizes the characteristic diagnostic methods. He proposes novel statement, perfects theoretic system and creates GAO's extra points. He puts forward that the human acupoint system should be reconstructed to compose of two systems, i.e. meridian acupoints and collateral acupoints systems. Professor GAO pays the attention to acupuncture techniques, proposes a trinity needling technique, "pulse diagnosis, acupoint detection and qi differentiation under needle", and applies different needling techniques in treatment accordingly. He thinks highly of moxibustion, especially umbilicus moxibustion therapy, which has been used widely in practice. Besides, professor GAO provides the comprehensive methods flexibly, with acupuncture, moxibustion and herbal medication in combination.

RESUMO

The paper introduces professor FU Li-xin's theoretic ideas and experience in treatment of vertigo. Professor FU believes that this disease is closely related to the blockage of qi movement in the middle jiao, opening-closing disarrangement in the pivot, "gate" obstruction, malnutrition of brain orifice and decreased blood flow in the nape. Based on the holistic idea of qi movement in traditional Chinese medicine and the circulatory theory of western medicine, the characteristics of the specific acupuncture therapy for "regulating the middle jiao, opening gate and relaxing tendon" are summarized. Using the layered needling technique at Zhongwan (CV 12) and "gate points" in the neck region, the tendon-bone needling technique with modified "dark tortoise seeking hole" at local tendon blockage points, vertigo is cured through regulating qi in the middle jiao, opening gate and nourishing marrow, relaxing tendon and harmonizing the mind.

RESUMO

Based on the theory of consolidating the root and cultivating the primary, the paper collates and reviews the theoretical evidences and the characteristics of Xin'an medical masters in treatment of bi syndrome with acupuncture and moxibustion so as to provide the ideas for further research. Xin'an medical masters thoroughly acquainted with the theory of consolidating the root and cultivating the primary in treatment of bi syndrome with acupuncture and moxibustion, emphasizing the regulation of qi and blood, yin and yang, the nutrient qi and the defensive qi; and replenishing the middle jiao (spleen and stomach) and the lower jiao (kidney). The acupoint selection was distinctive, in which, the acupoints were selected and stimulated in terms of the etiology and the pathogenesis of diseases, as well as the properties of special points. The remarkable therapeutic effect on bi syndrome was ensured through specially selecting he-sea points, ashi points and "yin-yang opposite" points; effectively using the penetrating needling technique and moxibustion method and combining acupuncture with herbal medication.

RESUMO

Based on the top-level ontology and the existing ontology methodology, the related concepts of meridians and acupoints were discriminated, defined and classified; the relationship of core concepts were established, e.g. meridians, acupoints and zangfu. It was attempted to build an ontological semantic framework of meridians and acupoints. Through the investigation on the classification mode of the top-level ontology, it is proposed that the meridians and acupoints, as the unique concepts of traditional Chinese medicine, exist in the form of "emptiness" and belong to "immaterial entity". Meridians refer to the three-dimensional channels in the human body, and acupoints are divided into ontological acupoints and body surface ones. Ontological acupoints are regarded as a three-dimensional structure within the human body, whereas, body surface ones are the optimal sites for acupuncture needle insertion on the body surface, meaning, the zero-dimensional point on the body surface. The main relationships between meridians and acupoints include is-a, exterior-interior, located-in, correspondent-to, mapping, etc. The exploration of the semantic framework of meridians and acupoints is conductive to understanding the connotation of meridians, acupoints and their relationship.

RESUMO

Acupuncture can regulate peripheral inflammatory response mainly through somatosensory-vagal/sympathetic nerve-splenic/adrenal/local reflex pathway. Besides, acupuncture may also play an anti-inflammatory role through gut microbiota and neuro-endocrine pathway. The effects of acupuncture have acupoint specificity and time window effect, and are influenced by voltage, current and frequency of electroacupuncture. Future research should focus on the connection and interaction of multiple targets, pathways and mechanisms in the brain, and clarify the multi-target advantages of acupuncture anti-inflammatory.

RESUMO

INTRODUCTION: Emotional disorders are often observed in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). IBD with emotional disorders leads to poor quality of life. This systematic review aims to assess the effectiveness of acupuncture in patients with IBD with emotional disorders. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: Nine electronic databases, including Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Allied and Complementary Medicine Database, Cumulative Index to Nursing & Allied Health Literature, China National Knowledge Infrastructure, Chinese Biomedical Literature Database, VIP Database and Wanfang Database, will be searched from inception to October 2021 without language restriction. The grey literature containing conference proceedings, as well as systematic reviews listed in the reference of definite publications, will also be retrieved. Randomised controlled trials either in English or Chinese reporting acupuncture therapy for IBD with emotional disorders will be included. The primary outcome is changes of emotional functioning outcomes. The Colitis Activity Index, Crohn's Disease Activity Index, C reactive protein and adverse events will be assessed as the secondary outcomes. More than two assessors will conduct the study retrieval and selection, as well as the data extraction and evaluation of the risk of bias. Data synthesis will be performed using a random-effects model based on the results of heterogeneity. Data analysis will be performed using RevMan software (V.5.4). Moreover, the dichotomous data will be presented as risk ratios, and the continuous data will be calculated using weighted mean difference or standard mean difference. ETHICS AND DISSEMINATION: This systematic review contains no individual patient data; thus, ethical approval is not required. Moreover, this review will be disseminated in a peer-reviewed journal or relevant conference. PROSPERO REGISTRATION NUMBER: CRD42020176340.

RESUMO

Although acupuncture has been used in clinical practice for thousands of years, it remains a controversial treatment option to help alleviate pain in cancer patients. In this study, we analyzed published material on randomized trials of acupuncture from MEDLINE published up until July 31, 2018, to assess its effects on pain experienced by cancer patients. Revman 5.0 software was used to conduct meta-analysis with pain score as the index. The results of nine randomized controlled trials involving 592 patients were analyzed and showed that acupuncture can relieve the pain caused by aromatase inhibitors. Weighted mean difference of worst pain and pain severity was -3.03, 95% CI (-3.90,-2.16) and -2.69, 95% CI (-4.08,-1.30), respectively (P < 0.01). This led us to conclude that acupuncture has pain relieving effects against pain caused by aromatase inhibitors.
