From: A pilot randomized controlled trial of acupuncture at the Si Guan Xue for cancer pain

Time Arm 1 (n = 14) Control arm (n = 14) Arm 2 (n = 14) P-value
Baseline 39.88 ± 19.39 32.74 ± 18.90 35.12 ± 15.04 0.57
Day 7 50.60 ± 17.13 44.64 ± 20.83 48.81 ± 16.62 0.68
Follow up 50.60 ± 19.47 45.24 ± 16.89 46.43 ± 18.98 0.73
Main effect of time (P-value)* <0.05
