  title={Clinical Observation on Warm Acupuncture Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis},
  author={Yun Jin Kim},
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic, inflammatory disease, frequently associated with joint destruction. The aim is this clinical observation was to contribute to warm needle acupuncture treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. We studied the before and after warm needle acupuncture and herbal medicine treatment of rheumatoid arthritis patient’s Rheumatoid Factor (RF), Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR), and C-reactive Protein (CRP), the plasma samples were investigated at Pathlab Laboratory (M…

Thermal Properties of Warm- versus Heated-Needle Acupuncture

Different time-dependent temperature distributions were observed between the two acupuncture methods: HA yielded a higher maximum temperature and temperature change on the surface, whereas WA yielded higher temperatures at the other tested depths.

Acupuncture: is it effective for treatment of insulin resistance?

Clinical evidence is provided, although limited, in support of the effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for IR and the mechanisms responsible for the beneficial effects of acupuncture are revealed, though further investigations are warranted.

Rheumatoid Arthritis in the Elderly in the Era of Tight Control

Uncertainties remain about the management of RA in the elderly as there have been few studies in this population, and the safety of the biotherapies therefore still needs to be confirmed, together with the benefit–risk balance of corticosteroid therapy compared with biological therapy.

Rheumatoid Factor, Anti-Cyclic Citrullinated Peptide Antibody, C-Reactive Protein, and Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate for the Clinical Diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Anti-CCP is more specific than the other parameters reviewed for the diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis and combined detection of the 4 parameters is beneficial when confirming a diagnosis of RA.
