Abstract:Objective: To assess the therapeutic effect of acupuncture and moxibustion for premature ovarian failure(POF). Methods:Based on Cochrance system assessment methods,the search engine Pub Med,CNKI and databases(till Sept,2015)including Wan Fang data and VIP database were used to retrieve.The randomized controlled trial of treating POF with the method of acupunture and moxibustion were inserted, the quality of adopted literature were evaluated one by one and valid data were extracted.Meta-analysis was conducted with the assistance of RevMan5.2 software. Results:Nine randomized controlled trials(RCTs) involving 719 patients in all with POF were on meta-analysis. Results of meta-analysis indicated: After treatment, there was statistical difference between acupuncture and Western medicine groups on effective rate(P<0.01)The results of Follicle-stimulating Hormone(FSH) and estrogen(E2) after therapy were better in the acupuncture group than those in the Western medicine group,which had statistical significance(P<0.05).Four of the 9 literatures referred to reported outcomes of Luteinizing-hormone(LH) and their differences had no statistical significance. Conclusions:During the treatment to POF,by observing clinically and analyzing the improvement of clinical efficacy and the level of serum hormone,the clinical efficacy of the method of acupuncture and moxibustion is better than that of the method of Western medicine.Since it’s difficult to achieve double-blind in the treatment of acupuncture and moxibustion and adopted literatures include some of low quality,so it remains to look forward to that high-quality experiments will provide high-quality evidence.
