The purpose

Controlling of cancer induced anorexia is highly demanded by advanced cancer patients. It plays an important role in improving the quality of life among advanced cancer patients. Through a randomized controlled single blinded clinical research, we will observe the differences of appetite, food intake amount, weight and KPS between the auricular needling treating group and control group before and after the treatment. Based on the results of the research, we can prove the clinical effectiveness of auricular needling in treating cancer induced anorexia and possible mechanism of the method.
