Abstract: In a comparative study on treatment of type I allergic diseases,
acupuncture and desensitization therapies were performed in 143 cases. The
results showed that acupuncture therapy had an extensive and remarkable
action against type I allergic reaction. The curative effect was higher in
the acupuncture group than in the desensitization group in allergic asthma,
allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria.
