To evaluate the clinical value of gene chip technology (GCT) in detecting the mycoba-cteria,isoniazid and rifampin resistance of patients diagnosed tuberculous empyema.The 182 patients who met the inclusion criteria were enrolled to this study from January 2011 to December 2015,whose pus mycobacterial species were detected by GCT and MGIT,the simultaneous and sensitivity of them were compared.Meanwhile,36 patients diagnosed tuberculous empyema were selected to detect isoniazid and rifampin resistance.The simultaneous and sensitivity of GCT were evaluated base on the standard of MGIT.The 135 patients were diagnosed by tuberculous empyema.The specificity of GCT was same to MGIT (95.7%),the the sensitivity was 48.9% (66/135)in GCT,26.7% in MGIT,there was significant difference between them (x2=80.5,P< 0.05).The sensitivity,specificity and coincidence rate of GCT in rifampin resistance were 100%,the sensitivity,specificityand coincidence rate in INH were 50.0%(1/2),97.1%(33/34) and 94.4%.Gene chip technology for detection of mycobacteria has high sensitivity and specificity,which can identify non-tuberculous mycobacteria quickly.And it can also effectively detect the resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis to isoniazid and rifampicin.It has important significance in early diagnosis and treatment of tuberculous empyema.

<p><b>OBJECTIVE</b>To compare the clinical efficacy in the treatment of allergic rhinitis (AR) of lung qi deficiency and cold syndrome between Jin's three-needle therapy and western medication.</p><p><b>METHODS</b>Sixty-six patients were randomized into an acupuncture group and a western medication group, 33 cases in each one. In the acupuncture group, acupuncture was applied at three-nose points [Yingxiang (LI 20), Shangyingxiang (EX-HN 8) and Yintang (GV 29); Cuanzhu (BL 2) was added for frontal headache] and three-back points [Dazhu (BL 11), Fengmen (BL 12) and Feishu (BL 13)], once every day. Ten treatments made one session. Two sessions of treatment were required. In the western medication group, desloratadine oral suspension was prescribed, 5 mg each time, once a day, for 20 days. The scores of the symptoms and physical signs in AR patients as well as the clinical efficacy were observed between the two groups.</p><p><b>RESULTS</b>The total effective rate was 93.9% (31/33) in the acupuncture group, which was better than 72.7% (24/33) in the western medication group (P < 0.05). After treatment, the scores of AR symptoms and physical signs as well as the total score were all reduced compared with those before treatment in the two groups (all P < 0.01). The score of every item in the acupuncture group was lower than that in the western medication group after treatment (score of symptoms: 4.70 +/- 2.07 vs 6.55 +/- 2. 69, score of physical signs: 0.85 +/- 0.67 vs 1.45 +/- +0.62, total score: 5.36 +/- 2.70 vs 8.00 +/- 2.91, all P < 0.01).</p><p><b>CONCLUSION</b>Jin's three-needle therapy achieves superior efficacy on AR of lung-qi deficiency and cold syndrome, which is better than desloratadine oral suspension.</p>
