We would like to share with you our personal view, beliefs and approach about the research that is presented on these pages.
We both value the research of modern science and the many developments that have been discovered.
We also value the depth of wisdom and knowledge of traditional and classical five element acupuncture, which integrates the many aspects of body and mind.
We acknowledge the information gained from research, and we endevaour to use it where appropriate when meeting the needs of an individual who is suffering in health.
We hope later to share more information on the five elements of acupuncture.

'Methods: Eighteen patients with persistent warts were recruited for the study; 9 received acupuncture treatment and 9 received placebo. Each patient was treated 4 times.
Results: Clinical success was defined as total clearance of all lesions with no recurrence for 3 months. In the treatment group, clinical success was 36.6% versus 0% in the placebo group. In the treatment group, the level of interleukin (IL)–10 decreased. In a comparison of patients with cleared warts and overall patients with nonresponding warts, different expression levels of IL-
Conclusions: Taking the clinical and immunologic outcomes together, clearance of persistent warts following acupuncture might be due to a shift toward a Th1 immune response, or an anti-

Unfortunately the sample size is too small to draw a definitive conclusion. The acupuncture treatment given was formulaic and not individualised. The authors do not provide details of the needle technique or accurate descriptions of surface anatomy for the points used, all in all making it difficult to replicate this study and it would be a good study to replicate with a larger sample. However there are immune blood markers that do change in the acupuncture group, Interleukin 10 but not in the placebo group which are significant however correlation does not necessarily mean causality.
