Moxibustion, using moxa made from dried mugwort (Artemisia argyi) is one of China’s most ancient therapies as old as acupuncture. Traditional moxibustion is not suitable for the environmental requirement of blood purification center because of the strong smoke, so we chose the non-smoking moxibustion therapy instrument with a paper-tube (produced by Taizhou City Moxibustion Therapy Technique Institute in Jiangsu Province, appliance ID: 2003.1270052). Since 2005, we carried out a series studies of the effectiveness of moxibustion on intervening complications of maintenance of hemodialysis patients. A newly prospective, multicenter, parallel randomized controlled method study was supported by Beijing Traditional Chinese Medicine Science and Technology project (No.JJ2013-64) and China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine research projects (N0.ZZ070863). And the result shows that in improving the SGA score, triceps skinfold thickness, body mass index and percentage of body fat, individualized moxibustion scheme is more effective than fixed point scheme and conventional western medicine treatment. Based on the above, we are going to do a further study of the effect mechanisms of moxibustion in intervening carnitine metabolic in hemodialysis patients, and this project has been supported by Dr. Innovation Fund from China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
