Acupuncture-moxibustion therapy (AMT) can safely and effectively improve symptoms in patients with chemotherapy-induced leukopenia (CIL). Chinese authors included data from 17 studies (1206 patients) in their systematic review and meta-analysis. In comparison with medical therapy, AMT demonstrated a better clinical efficacy for CIL, and resulted in significantly increased leukocyte counts. Results also showed that AMT resulted in better improvements in patients' functional impairment scores, measured on the Karnofsky performance scale.
