Abstract: Combining acupuncture with acupoint-injection of aceglutamidi has
been used in treating 38 cases of senile dementia.
Our experiment showed
that the therapy is effective for the cases of multi-infarct dementia, the
rate of success being 42.85% and of improvement 42.865, the total efficacy
rate being 85.71%. The rating was based on the revised Hasegawa Dementia
Scale and the Functional Activity Questionnaire. In addition, it has been
observed that the component of high density lipid-cholesterone increased
significantly after treatment.
