The Acupuncture Evidence Project: A Comparative Literature Review (2017)
The Acupuncture Evidence Project (McDonald J, and Janz S, 2017) was a project recently undertaken looking at the current range of evidence relating to acupuncture clinical trials.
We searched the literature with a focus on systematic reviews and meta analyses (the highest form of evidence available). We sorted the evidence to identify which conditions acupuncture has been found to be most effective for. We also looked for evidence of acupuncture’s safety and cost-effectiveness, and we reported how the evidence for acupuncture’s effectiveness has changed over an eleven-year time-frame. (Plain English Summary: AEP, McDonald J, and Janz S, 2017)
The Acupuncture Evidence Project looked at 122 conditions and discovered strong evidence for the use of acupuncture with 8 conditions and moderate evidence for a further 38 conditions.
