PainSci summary of Ee 2016?This page is one of thousands in the PainScience.com bibliography. It is not a general article: it is focussed on a single scientific paper, and it may provide only just enough context for the summary to make sense. Links to other papers and more general information are provided at the bottom of the page, as often as possible. ★★★★☆?4-star ratings are for bigger/better studies and reviews published in more prestigious journals, with only quibbles. Ratings are a highly subjective opinion, and subject to revision at any time. If you think this paper has been incorrectly rated, please let me know.

Real acupuncture once again fails to beat sham acupuncture, this time for menopausal hot flashes. Large trial, good methodology, fine journal, low risk of researcher bias… and completely consistent with the trend in acupuncture research: the better the test, the harder it fails.
