ABSTRACT

Objectives This review aims to analyze the current research trend in the usage of bee venom (BV) acupuncture for spinal diseases. Methods We collected 80 articles on BV acupuncture clinical study for spinal diseases by searching Korean web databases ‘Journal of Korean Medicine Rehabilitation’, ‘Oriental Medicine Advanced Searching Integrated System’, ‘Korean Traditional Knowledge Portal’ from 1999 to 2018. Results We summarized the most frequent clinical treatment methods of BV acupuncture. 1. Herniated intervertebral disc was treated for 40% and the treated spinal diseases were various. 2. ‘1:10,000’ in the type of BV was chosen for 21%. 3. 29% of studies used 6-7 acupoints per session and 23% of studies used ‘BL’ as the injection site. 3. The highest volume of injected BV into each acupoint was 0.1 cc for 34% and the highest total volume of injected BV was 1.0 cc for 39%. Conclusions We found the limited evidence on the lack of consensus and detailed description in the reported experimental design. The results in this review suggest that future works should focus on more consistent and systematic study for the reproducible and standardized treatment methods.
