AbstractAcupuncture is rapidly becoming part of mainstream medicine in the West and in the United States. A national survey shows that more Americans are using the modality now than they were a decade ago. Federal research funding has increased, and an extensive body of acupuncture research has been published, much of it with important clinical implications. Recent clinical trial and systematic review results clearly show acupuncture to be more beneficial than conventional standard care for many pain conditions, and basic scientific research has advanced our knowledge of acupuncture's mechanisms of action in a number of pathological conditions. While the current research is not without its problems and difficulties, the acupuncture research community has matured and is facing its challenges by developing better research methodologies, applying new technologies, and engaging in more creative and innovative translational research. This review discusses developments in the field. © Copyright 2012, Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
