Object: To observe the clinical curative effect, adverse events and the influence onimmune globin of Du-Moxibustion across ginger and garlic in treating ankylosingspondylitis (AS), and to explore a new way and provide the basis for treatment of AS.Method:60patients with AS were divided into a treatment group and a control grouprandomly.The treatment group were treated with Du-Moxibustion across garlic and gingertherapy,while the control group were treated with Du-Moxibustion across ginger therapy.Each group were treated once a month for3months. Analyzing the changes of the patients’symptoms,signs,Ig before and after treatment.Result:1.Comparing the two groups before and after the treatment,there is significantdifference from the levels of Ig (P<0.05) in each group,and there is no significantdifference from the scores for clinical symptoms (P<0.05) between the two groups aftertreatment, and the treatment group is superior to the control group.2.Comparing the two groups before and after the treatment,there is significantdifference from the scores for clinical symptoms (P<0.01) in each group,and there is nosignificant difference from the scores for clinical symptoms (P>0.05) between the twogroups after treatment,and the treatment group is superior to the control group.3.Comparing the cases in each group before treatment there is significant differencefrom the sign-score(P<0.05), and comparing the two groups after treatment there issignificant difference from the sign-score(P﹥0.05),and there is no significant difference ofthe two group.4.Both of the two methods can improve the clinical symptoms (P<0.01) effectively,thetotal effectiveness of the treatment group is90%,which is higher than that of the control group which is80%(P<0.05).5.Neither the treatment group nor the control group had adverse events.Conclusion:1.The Du-Moxibustion across ginger and garlic can improve the clinical symptoms andsigns effectively.2.The Du-Moxibustion across ginger and garlic can improve the immune globulin.3.Du-Moxibustion across ginger and garlic has less adverse events, and it is a safe andeffective method to treat AS.
