Some of those were supported with well-designed, controlled, and even sham-controlled studies, a scientific gold standard that few thought could be applied to these therapies.

The disappointing news was from the clinical trial of the alpha blocker alfuzosin from the NIDDK-sponsored Chronic Prostatitis Collaborative Research Network (CPCRN). Good Science Supports Acupuncture for CP/CPPS Pain.
