This searchable, web-based bibliography of randomized clinical trials and systematic reviews of acupuncture, developed by the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine (OCOM) Research Department. It is a prototype bibliographic database that references RCTs and systematic reviews of acupuncture published in the English language, and is compiled primarily from PubMed, the Cochrane Library, and the collection of the OCOM Library, which subscribes to 16 Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) journals that are not indexed in MEDLINE. The AcuTrials® database currently contains approximately 900 indexed citations and is continuously updated. AcuTrials® is a unique resource for practitioners and researchers interested in specific acupuncture research.
