Objective To evaluate the clinical effect of acupoint sticking in preventing and treating bronchial asthma in children,and to analyze the potential influencing factors.Methods Children diagnosed with bronchial asthma were selected and divided into sticking group and non-sticking group according to whether they received acupoint sticking therapy.The baseline data of subjects were collected.Then,these patients were followed up for 18 months to obtain disease progression scores.A binary logistic regression analysis was used to determine the influencing factors for disease condition scores.Results A total of 329 children with asthma were followed up,consisting of 196 cases in the sticking group and 133 cases in the non-sticking group.The disease progression scores tended to decrease over the time of follow-up;the sticking group had an insignificantly lower total disease progression score than the non-sticking group(P0.05).The logistic regression analysis showed that the total disease progression score decreased over the course of sticking therapy.Conclusion Acupoint sticking,which is based on the principle of " winter disease cured in summer",has a certain effect in preventing and treating pediatric asthma in remission stage,especially when used for a long period.
