Acupuncture reduces pain and serum markers associated with endometriosis, according the authors of a systematic review carried out in China. Data from ten studies, comprising 589 participants, were included in their meta-analysis. The results showed that acupuncture yielded better reductions in pain associated with dysmenorrhoea, and led to a better reduction in peripheral blood CA-125 (a marker for endometriosis) when compared with control interventions (sham acupuncture, orthodox medicine and traditional Chinese medicine).
