Acupuncture is associated with reduced angina attack frequency in patients with chronic stable angina, researchers from China report.

They examined the efficacy and safety of acupuncture as an adjunctive therapy to anti-anginal therapies in a randomised clinical trial that compared acupuncture on the acupoints of the disease-affected meridian with acupoints on the non-affected meridian, sham acupuncture or no acupuncture.
