Emesis in patients receiving acupuncture, sham acupuncture or standard care during chemo-radiation: A randomized controlled study.

CONCLUSION: Patients treated with verum acupuncture needed less antiemetics and experienced milder nausea than other patients. Our study was small and many analyses lacked statistical power to detect differences; we welcome further sham-controlled efficacy studies and studies regarding the role of non-specific treatment components for experiencing antiemetic effects of acupuncture.
