Novella and David Colquhoun found that the inconsistency of results of acupuncture studies i.e. acupuncture relieved pain in some conditions but had no effect in other very similar conditions suggests false positive results, which may be caused by factors like biased study designs, poor blinding, and the classification of electrified needles a type of TENS as a form of acupuncture. 164 The same editorial suggested that given the inability to find consistent results despite more than 3,000 studies of acupuncture, the treatment seems to be a placebo effect and the existing equivocal positive results are noise one expects to see after many studies are performed on an inert therapy. 164 The editorial concluded that the best controlled studies acupuncture clinic showed a clear pattern, in which the outcome does not rely upon needle location or even needle insertion, and since “these variables are those that define acupuncture, the only sensible conclusion is that acupuncture does not work.”
