BACKGROUND: The use of Chinese medicinal drugs is becoming more common in Germany. However, the import from China results in aggravated quality controls and potentially jeopardized therapeutic safety. Therefore, in 1999 the Bavarian Department for Agriculture has initiated an interdisciplinary research project to cultivate and analyze important Chinese herbal plants. Currently 16 Bavarian-produced Chinese drugs are in use and distributed to patients by pharmacies. Despite a comparable quality of Bavarian pharmaceutical products, there are concerns remaining as the Bavarian medical drugs have been used for treatment purposes on patients since 2006, without their effect having been compared to the Chinese products...

In October 2000 the German Federal Committee of Physicians and Health Insurers recommended that special Model Projects on Acupuncture ("Modellvorhaben Akupunktur") be developed in order to determine the evidence-based role of acupuncture in the treatment of certain illnesses. This paper presents a summary of the main randomised controlled trials performed as part of these projects, and the associated economic analyses. Overall the results show that acupuncture is effective in practice for a range of chronic conditions, and it seems likely to have acceptable cost utility (at least at a rate of euro35 per session)...
