Abstract:Objective To compare the clinical efficacy in the treatment of allergic rhinitis(AR)of lung qi deficiency and cold syndrome between Jin’s three-needle therapy and western medication.Methods Sixty-six patients were randomized into an acupuncture group and a western medication group,33cases in each one.In the acupuncture group,acupuncture was applied at three-nose points[Yingxiang(LI 20),Shangyingxiang(EX-HN 8)and Yintang(GV 29);Cuanzhu(BL 2)was added for frontal headache]and three-back points[Dazhu(BL 11),Fengmen(BL 12)and Feishu(BL 13)],once every day.Ten treatments made one session.Two sessions of treatment were required.In the western medication group,desloratadine oral suspension was prescribed,5mg each time, once a day,for 20days.The scores of the symptoms and physical signs in AR patients as well as the clinical efficacy were observed between the two groups.Results The total effective rate was 93.9%(31/33)in the acupuncture group,which was better than 72.7%(24/33)in the western medication group(P<0.05).After treatment, the scores of AR symptoms and physical signs as well as the total score were all reduced compared with those before treatment in the two groups(all P<0.01).The score of every item in the acupuncture group was lower than that in the western medication group after treatment(score of symptoms:4.70±2.07vs 6.55±2.69,score of physical signs:0.85±0.67vs 1.45±0.62,total score:5.36±2.70vs 8.00±2.91,all P<0.01).Conclusion Jin’s three-needle therapy achieves superior efficacy on AR of lung-qi deficiency and cold syndrome,which is better than desloratadine oral suspension.
