Abstract:Objective To explore the clinical efficacy of herbal-partitioned moxibustion on moderate and severe persistent allergic rhinitis(AR) with spleen-qi deficiency syndrome. Methods With prospective case series study method,forty-seven patients of moderate and severe persistent AR with spleen-qi deficiency syndrome were treated with herbal-partitioned moxibustion at Yintang(GV 29), Shenque(CV 8), Hegu(LI 4) and Zusanli(ST 36), once every two days,three treatments a week, continuously for 8 weeks. The visual analogue scale(VAS), rhinoconjunctivitis quality of life questionnaire(RQLQ) and scores of spleen-qi deficiency syndrome were recorded before treatment, 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 8 weeks into treatment as well as 4 weeks after treatment; in addition, the improvement rate of each index was compared before and after treatment. Results Compared before treatment, the VAS, RQLQ and scores of spleen-qi deficiency syndrome were significantly reduced 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 8 weeks into treatment as well as 4 weeks after treatment(P<0.05, P<0.01). The efficacy was gradually increased 2 weeks, 4 weeks and 8 weeks into treatment(all P<0.01). On the 8 weeks into treatment, the improved and markedly effective rate was 59.6%(28/47) for VAS, 19.1%(9/47) for RQLQ and 14.9%(7/47) for scores of spleen-qi deficiency syndrome; the total effective rate was all 85.1%(40/47). Compared with 4 weeks after treatment, there was no significant difference(all P>0.05). Conclusion The herbal-partitioned moxibustion has superior efficacy for moderate and severe persistent allergic rhinitis with spleen-qi deficiency syndrome.
