Objective: To investigate if acupuncture can improve the curative effect of Western medicine on chronic prostatitis (CP).Methods: One hundred and ten patients with chronic prostatitis were randomly allocated to a treatment group of 80 cases and a control group of 30 cases. The clinical effects were evaluated according to cultures of bacteria in early-stream urine, midstream urine, prostate secretion(EPS) and after-massage urine(VB3).Results: Both the cure rate and the total efficacy rate were higher in the treatment group than in the control group(43/80 vs 10/30,P<0.01; 75/80 vs 25/30,P<0.05). In the treatment group there was no significant difference in curative effect between bacterial CP and nonbacterial CP(P>0.05). In the control group the curative effect on bacterial CP was significantly superior to that on nonbacterial CP.Conclusion: Treatment with combined acupuncture and medicine is a good therapy for nonbacterial CP.
