Acupuncture can ease cancer

The extreme sickness experienced by cancer patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy could be eased by electroacupuncture. Nausea and vomiting caused by the powerful drugs used to fight cancer can prove extremely debilitating for patients.

Doctors offer an arsenal of various anti-emetic drugs to lessen the reaction, but in recent years acupuncture has been joining mainstream medicine as a possible extra help. Acupuncture involves the insertion of tiny needles at various set points around the body. Although there is evidence that it works for a variety of conditions.//

Electroacupuncture also involves inserting needles, but then passing different strengths of electrical current through them.The latest study to back the technique was carried out at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, US, and reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Thirtyeight patients were given electroacupuncture through two "classic" points. They were also given three conventional anti-emetics, while 34 other patients had a less intense form of acupuncture, and 35 only drugs. Among the acupuncture group, the average number of sickness bouts during the five following days was six, 11 for those receiving the less intense acupuncture, and 16 for those simply taking anti-emetics. The authors are now recommending that hospitals offer the treatment to patients in whom conventional drugs have failed to prevent vomiting.

Mark Bovey, a research co-ordinator, at the Acupuncture Research Resource Centre at Exeter University, said that doctors were beginning to become far more accepting of acupuncture as a viable therapy. He said: "Acupuncture is well-known as a control of various sorts of nausea and vomiting, such as post-operative pain, morning sickness and travel sickness.
