Acupuncture & Crohn's disease

In a single blind controlled trial of 51 patients with mild to moderately active Crohn's disease, 27 were randomly assigned to receive traditional acupuncture, and 24 to receive sham acupuncture at non-points. The true acupuncture group showed significantly greater improvements in the Crohn's disease activity index than the sham group, and significantly greater wellbeing scores. Serum markers of inflammation decreased in the traditional acupuncture group but not in the sham group.
