Application of the ultraviolet autoblood irradiation (uv-therapy) to the complex treatment of the acute injuries of the upper extremity
Tvaladze M, Avazashvili D, Kopadze Department of Vascular and Urgent Microsurgery, State Medical Academy of GeorgiaData on 863 patients with acute injuries of the upper extremities, treated in the department during 1996-2001 yy were analyzed. Among them injuries of the upper extremity were found in 579 (67.09%) patients, of the left in 284 (32.91%). Majority of these patients had simultaneous injuries of several anatomical structures. Trauma of arteries were found in 403 patients (46.70%), nerves –in 687 (79.60%) patients, injuries of tendineous apparatus of the hand in 668 patients (77.40%), fractures- 197 (22.82%) patients. All patients were operated. According to the peculiarities of the postoperative treatment patients were divided in two groups. In the first group were gathered patients, who got postoperativity only the course of conservative treatment including antibiotics, anticoagulants (according to indications), enzymes and so on. In the second group were collected 370 patients (42.87%) that had course of UV-therapy (irradiator Flora, 258 nm), as a part of the complex postoperative treatment. Each UV-procedure consisted of 4-5 reinfusion procedures; in each case volume of irradiated autoblood was calculated as 2 ml per 1 kg of patient’s weight.  Suppuration of postoperative wounds was found in 39 cases of the first group of patients (7.91%), and only in 14 cases of the second group of patients (3.78%). Arterial insufficiency was observed in 26 cases in the first group, and in 8 cases in the second group.

Rheumatoid Arthritis 
There was an extensive study done on 148 patients with an average of 9.1 yrs of Rheumatoid Arthritis. 27 were is stage I, 50 in stage II, 55 in stage III and 16 in stage IV. These were divided into 5 groups. Four that received varying amounts of LBI at differing frequencies. The last being a placebo group. Results were clear that those in earlier stages of RA were significantly helped and the more severe the patients condition the more difficult. In a study on rheumatoid arthritis the clinical trials showed that there is a placebo effect on having treatments. This is well documented but it was nowhere near as good as the response of two groups that were given more consistent and frequent treatments. In severe cases of rheumatoid arthritis UBI can exacerbate the condition, presumably where irreparable joint damage had occurred but in moderate to mild cases UBI was shown to be very beneficial.Zvereva, K.V., N.D. Gladkova, E.A. Grunina, and P.L. Logunov (1994). "The Choice of Method of Intravascular Laser Therapy in Rheumatoid Arthritis [Russian]," Terapevticheskii Arkiv, 66:1:29-32  

Multiple Sclerosis
Not a lot of information is available from studies. One doctor's observation with 5 patients was that 2 improved dramatically, one who recovered from terminal stage MS after 4 sessions of UBI and lived a relatively normal life for some years.

Rheumatic Fever -
From earlier years 108 Children with rheumatic fever – 22 hospitalized with acute rheumatic carditis. 2 in severe condition. All received UBI treatment. One in severe condition died. The rest were able to leave the hospital without any sign of rheumatic activity. They and the rest received prophylactic treatment over the next several years. There were only two reoccurrences and those were successfully treated. In contrast to other common drug therapies there was not a single report of toxicity. Wasson, V. P., Miley, G. P., Dunning, P.M. (1950). "Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy (Knott Technique) in Rheumatic Fever in Children," Experimental Medicine and Surgery 8:1:15-33 

43 cases treated, three with severe chronic hepatitis – all successfully treated and with a follow up of 4.5-6 yrs.  Still healthy.  Comment by R.C. Onley M.D. ”… the results of (UBI) are considered significant and noteworthy”
R.C. Olney et al “Treatment of Viral Hepatitis with the Knott Technique of Blood Irradiation,” American Journal of Surgery 90 (1955) pp.402-9

Another study from 1994 had three groups with chronic active hepatitis and cirrhosis of the liver patients studied.  Group 1 (20 patients) standard drugs - Group 1 – 12 of 20 had good results 2 died, Group 2 – (16 patients) LBI treatment - Group 2 - 13 of 16 had good results Group 3 – (10 patients) LBI infusion treatment. Group 3 - 10 of 10 had good results. Suspected improved microcirculation in the liver was a factor and accounted for the superior outcomes.

Chronic Dermatoses 


V.N. Korol

National Medical University, Kiev – Ukraine

Background/Aim: To study the effectiveness of autotransfusion of ultraviolet irradiated blood (AUVB) in the treatment of dermatological patients. Methods: AUVB was carried out with the help of the apparatus “Izolda” MD-73M with the blood current speed of 20ml/min. The blood, taken from a patient, was irradiated extracorporeally by a mercury-quartz lamp with short ultraviolet rays (SUV) 254nm a quartz cuvette, through which it was let with the help of a peristaltic pump, and then its reinfusion was fulfilled. The volume of irradiated blood was 120-150 mL. The number of such sessions in the course of treating a patient was from 7 to 12. The treatment with AUVB was carried out for 56 patients having psoriasis, 14 patients having neurodermatitis disseminate, 4 having lichen rubber planus and 26 patients with chronic piodermits (furunculosis, acne illness). Results: It has been determined that patients with psoriasis (especially with arthropatic psoriasis, psoriatic erythrodermy and spread psoriasis with torpidic course), with neurodermatitis disseminate, lichen rubber planus, furunculosis and acne illness have suppression of the cellular and humoral immunity, nonspecific reactiveness of organism. After the course of treatment by autotransfussion of UV-irradiated blood we could observe a significant improvement or normalization of the indices of the cellular and humoral immunity, non-specific reactiveness, that was followed with positive clinical dynamics.

Conclusions: Autotransfusion of UV-irradiated blood assists the normalization of immunological reactiveness of patients that allows to use it effectively for the treatment of serious and complicated forms of chronic dermatoses.

Migraine Headaches
 12 patients with longstanding migraine headaches.  11 had “striking improvement”  7 needed maintenance treatments every two months.

Septic Abortion Problems One study which UBI was combined with hemo absorption found a fourfold decline in mortality and a more rapid recovery on average.
Maltsuyev, A.I. et al. “The Use of UBI in Obstetrical-Gynecological Practice [Russian]," Akusherstvo I Ginekologiia (1990), No 8, p.8

126 patients with sepsis study, 66 had septic abortion. There were 3 groups comprised of 42 patients each. Group 1 – 3-10 sessions of UBI, Group 2 UBI plus hemo absorption, Group 3 s

 tandard drug treatment. Group 1 – 2 cases of septicopyemia and 14deathsGroup 2 – 0 cases of septicopyemia and 6 deaths Group 3 – 6 cases of septicopyemia and 23 deaths. In numerous studies by the same authors, 215 Women treated for gynecological disorders ranging from adnexitis to endometriosis to disruptions in the menstrual cycle found UBI to have an analgesic, detoxifying and anti-inflammatory effect.

Migraine Headache patients using UBI found a normalization of the menstrual cycle and conception as a side effect. Frick, G. (1989). Fibel der Ultrviolettbestrahlung des Blutes. Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universitaet Greifswald p. 74

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
119 patients with polycystic ovary syndrome with a control of 23. After UBI 25 of 29 women complaining of headache said that the headache disappeared or diminished. 29 of 41 with amenorrhea achieved a regular menstrual cycle. 7 of 24 complaining of infertility became pregnant. 8 of 42 complaining of hirutism experienced improvement. Lab reports included disappearance of hyperandrogenism and a tendency toward normalization of secretion of gonadotrophins.

Preclampsia 91 patients with preclampsia in the 3rd trimester were treated with LBI 1 received high doses of LBI for 20 minutes 7 days in a row while 30 patients received standard drugs. They found that LBI helped to stabilize erythrocyte membranes, improve microcirculation and blood rheology. It significantly reduced hemolysis, increased diuresis, resolved edema and rapidly and dramatically reduced proteinuria (0.24g/l compared to 0.82 g/l), lowered blood cholesterol and more rapidly alleviated hypertension compared to the control group. Babies born to this LBI group had better APGAR scores – 20% required c-section while 31% of the control had c-sections. IN conclusion LBI cut the rate of unsuccessful response to treatment from 61% to 20%.

In regards to effect of BI on the fetus, after careful study ,no one has found any harmful effect nor sign of mutagenicity. Maltsuyev, A.I. et al. “The Use of UBI in Obstetrical-Gynecological Practice [Russian], “ Akusherstvo I Ginekologiia (1990), No 8, p.8 Evidence indicates that UBI stabilizes membranes against lipid peroxidation. 111 Preeclampsia [Russian]," Akusherstvo i Ginekologiia 6:18-22


Neonates – Inflammatory Disorders 52 neonates up to 12 hours old in critical condition with suppurative or inflammatory disorders. Upon 3 treatments of UBI – dose equivalent to body weight. Antihypoxic effect of UBI showed in 28 cases. The infants became more active and stopped having breathing problems.  
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease Achieved an 80% totally successful outcome in severe, refractory cases. Only 20% needed surgery. Olney, R.C. (1947). "Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Treatment of Pelvic Cellulitis, Knot Method," American Journal of Surgery 84:4:440-3


Sexually Transmitted Diseases – Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) 631 patients treated over a three year period. 200 classified as very severe with recurring attacked from several months to years. UBI monotherapy relieved all symptoms and patients returned to normal in 174 (79%). 24 patients (11%) were improved while 22% (10%) required operations for ovarian cysts, fibroids or abscesses.
Olney, R.C. (1947). "Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Treatment of Pelvic Cellulitis, Knot Method," American Journal of Surgery 84:4:440-3

A Study in 1990 with 23 patients with various kinds of PID and related conditions were treated with UBI plus drugs and a control group of another 24 received just standard drug therapy. Pain disappeared, temperature normalized and disease signs disappeared much sooner with the UBI group. They healed in an average of 12 days while the control group took 21 days.

Burns 87 Patients with burns covering 3-60% of the body surface – 56 were IIIB-IV degree from 2-38% of the body surface. IN the first few days their mood improved, sleep normalized, appetites rose and intenseness of pain diminished – drug reduced. Pneumonias disappeared. Epithelization of the surface II and IIIA degree burns took place. Hospitalization shortened from 33.9 days to 26.2 days with those having UBI treatments.

Other infections
Clinical trials of UBI successful against pneumococcus, staphylococcus, streptococcus and a mixture of other microbes. In a 182 patient study with 90 as a control. The treatment group recovered more rapidly (by 5-7 days) had fewer complications and experienced a reduction in fibrogen to normal activation of anticoagulatory and fibinolytic elements. Initial Anemia – those treated saw a 30.7% increase in erythrocytes.
