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.

treatment - Group 2 - 13 of 16 had good resultsGroup 3 – (10 patients) LBI infusion treatment.
Group 3 - 10 of 10 had good results. Suspected improved microcirculation in the liver was a factor

AUTOTRANSFUSION OF ULTRAVIOLET-IRRADIATED
BLOOD IN THE TREATMENT OF CHRONIC DERMATOSES
Medical University, Kiev – Ukraine
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
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.

East Germans have used it extensively. Placebo studies, comparative
studies and UBI therapy were all looked at and the conclusion was “UBI is clearly superior…”.
21 patients were part of a double blind study – 2 ended up free of complaints, 5 noted significant improvement,
6 some improvements and 8 had no change. From a number of his studies 60-80% of migraine patients benefited
from UBI, some of them even becoming headache free.

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.

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-secion while 31% of the control had c-sections.
IN conclusion LBI cut the rate of unsuccessful response to treatment from 61% to 20%.

A study of 222 hospitalized patients with destructive tuberculosis of the lungs were divided in
two groups. The first group included UBI therapy, the second did not. Within 3 months
the 1st group was 100% disease free while only 58.8% of the group with antibiotics only was disease free. After
3 months 89.5% of the first group saw the destructive results of the disease disappear and only 3.2% of the second group.
