A Review of Economic Evaluations in Acupuncture for Allergic Rhinitis
Lee, Dong-Hyo ;
The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 29, issue 2, 2016, Pages 1~11
DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2016.29.2.001
Objective : The purpose of this study is to analyze research trends on the cost-effectiveness in acupuncture for patients with allergic rhinitis. Methods : The literature and research in allergic rhinitis was searched in electronic databases, such as National Health Service Economic Evaluation Database(NHS EED) and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews(CDSR). The general characteristics and the results of each economic analysis such as incremental cost-effectiveness ratios(ICERs) were extracted. Results : In total, thirty seven studies were searched, and two studies were analyzed. They were cost-utility analysis(CUA)s that measured quality-adjusted life years(QALYs). One study showed that the ICER was €22,798 per QALY and was robust in sensitivity analysis. Another showed that the ICER was between €31,241 and €118,889 from society's perspective and between €20,807 and €74,585 from a third-party payer's perspective. Conclusions : Any generalization of these results needs to be made with caution given the specific effects of acupuncture and the difference of cost data in the various countries. Further studies are needed on this topic in order to demonstrate the cost-effectiveness clearly.

Jeon, Young-Kyun ; Jung, Myung ; Bok, Young-Ok ; Lee, Eun-Hye ; Lim, Kyu-Sang ; Yun, Young-Gab ;
The Journal of Korean Medicine Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and Dermatology, volume 29, issue 2, 2016, Pages 65~81
DOI : 10.6114/jkood.2016.29.2.065
Objectives : Haedoksamul-tang (HSTE), a water extract from a mixture of Phellodendri Cortex, Coptidis, Scutellariae Radix, Gardeniae Fructus, Angelica acutiloba Radix, Cnidii Rhizoma, Paeoniae Radix, Rehmanniae Radix, has been traditionally used for allergic skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis in oriental countries. However, little is known about the effects of aqueous extract of HSTE on trimellitic anhydride (TMA)-induced contact hypersensitivity (CHS) in a mouse model. Methods : In this study, we investigate the pharmacological effects of HSTE on TMA-induced CHS in Balb/c mice. Contact hypersensitivity was induced in mice by topically sensitizing and challenging with TMA in flank skin and ears during oral administration (for 17 days) and topical treatment (30 min before challenge) with HSTE. We examined the effects of HSTE on IgE and IgG1 levels, inflammatory parameters in ear tissues, CD4
ratio, cytokine and chemokine production in sera, tissues, and immune cells from TMA-sensitized mice.Results : Oral and topical administration with HSTE reduced, in a dose dependent manner, thickness and leukocyte infiltration of ear tissues and IgE levels in serum from mice sensitized with TMA. In addition, auricula lymph node cells isolated from TMA-sensitized mice significantly elevated the expression ratio of CD4
as well as increased the production of IL-4, IL-5, IL-13 and IFN-γ by ex vivo stimulation with antibodies against CD3 and CD28, and these inflammatory indexes, except for IFN-γ, were significantly suppressed by orally and topically administration of HSTE. Furthermore, stimulation of auricula lymph node cells from TMA-sensitized mice with antibodies against CD3 and CD28 increased the production of MCP-1/CCL2 and MIP-1α/CCL3, and these effects were inhibited in a dose-dependent manner in cells from mice treated with HSTE. Conclusions : These results suggest that HSTE can be used for treating contact hypersensitivity by inhibiting leukocyte infiltration as well as production of serum IgE and chemokine/Th2 cytokine in an animal model.

Anal and perianal condyloma acuminatum(CA), which is a large cauliflower-like tumor, is a manifestation of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. HPV may be acquired via sexual transmission, vertical transmission or nonsexual contact. It is an uncommon condition in children but the incidence in children has been increasing recently. There are many therapies for CA including chemical or physical destruction, immunological therapy, or a surgical excision. All these procedures have some degree of limitations such as limited clearance rate, high recurrence rate, pain, bleeding, release of potentially infectious aerosols and scar. It may be traumatic mentally to the children as well as physically. Korean Medicine included herbal treatment and herbal ointment for CA is no pain, and it doesn't need an anesthesia. We present a case of anal and perianal CA in a 2 years old boy that was treated successfully with Korean Medicine, with no recurrence during the follow up 3 months.
