Acupuncture treatment for premature ovarian failure -research update

Premature ovarian failure (POF) is a loss of normal function of the ovaries before age 40. If the ovaries are not functioning well, they don't produce normal amounts of the hormone estrogen or release eggs regularly. Much research has shown that acupuncture is used to treat POF effectively. A recent paper analysed the data from past 20 years (1998-2017) to study the effect and mechanism of acupuncture for treating POF to provide evidence for the treatment. They analysed 26 research papers on the clinical treatment for POF with acupuncture and 5 ones on the laboratory mechanism. The acupuncture points used for this purpose include Taixi (KI 3), Sanyinjiao (SP 6) and Guanyuan (CV 4)], Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Zusanli (ST 36) and Ciliao (BL 32), Taichong (LR 3), Shenting (GV 24), Guanyuan (CV 4), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Ganshu (BL 18) and Shenshu (BL 23), Pishu (BL 20), Sanyinjiao (SP 6) and Zusanli (ST 36), Guanyuan (CV 4), Zigong (EX-CA 1) and Huangshu (KI 16). The top acupoints of the 14 meridians were Guanyuan (CV 4), Shenshu (BL 23), Sanyinjiao (SP 6), Zhongji (CV 3), Pishu (BL 20), Taixi (KI 3) and Ganshu (BL 18). The effect mechanisms possibly referred to the recovery of the hormone levels through regulating the hypothalamus-pituitary gland-ovarian axle (HPOA) function, the improvement of the histological morphology of the uterine, the improvement of body immunity through affecting the nerve-endocrine-immune regulation system as well as the regulation of the genetic and protein expressions of the signal pathway relevant with POF.
