Clinical symptoms such as coughing, sputum production, and breathlessness were rated using a points system to assess severity, with symptoms rated on a scale of 0–3. Scores were then added together, with a higher total score indicating more severe symptoms. Mean baseline scores were 5.72 in the Seretide group and 5.55 in the acupuncture group. At the four week assessment, improvements were significantly greater in the Seretide group, with scores falling to 4.55 compared with just 5.45 in the acupuncture group (p<0.05). However, after eight weeks there was no significant difference between the two groups, with symptom scores rated at 4.25 in the Seretide group and 4.43 in the acupuncture group (p>0.05). Quality of life was measured using the SGRQ, a 50 item questionnaire used to assess symptom severity and impact on daily activities, on a scale of 0–100. Baseline scores were similar across the two groups, with a mean of 54.28 in the Seretide group, and 52.59 in the acupuncture group (p<0.05). At the end of the study, the mean score in the Seretide group fell to 45.52, compared with 38.64 in the acupuncture group, indicating greater improvements in the acupuncture group (p<0.05). The results indicate that Seretide and acupuncture are effective therapies for the treatment of COPD.
