UBI was the original term for UBT.
Blue indicates a trial with controls
Influenza, respiratory tract infections, Herpes Zoster and Simplex, Measles, etc.
Polio – Poliomyelitis, Polioencephalitis
Results of a Comparative study of 25 cases of acute, severe bulbospinal polio in children in Los Angeles showed that when UBI was used, the death rate was significantly lowered.

Miley reported that a single treatment of viral pneumonia with UBI was sufficient to bring about recovery. Miley, G.P., Olney, R.C., Lewis, H.T. Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation: A History and Guide to Clinical Application (1933-1997). Silver Spring Maryland: Foundation for Blood Irradiation.
A Russian study of 10 patients ages 17-30 with acute pneumonia and 20 healthy controls were given antibiotics as well as two UBI treatments. There was a marked favorable influence on the regulation of lipid peroxidation and the antioxidant system with overall beneficial results of UBI over the controls.

Influenza, Respiratory tract infections, Herpes Zoster, Herpes Simplex, Mumps, Measles, Mononucleosis (EBV) and plantar warts.
Reports of Miley and others have shown that UBI successfully treats influenza, respiratory tract infections, Herpes Zoster, Herpes Simplex, Mumps, Measles, Mononucleosis (EBV) and plantar warts. In the study below researchers listed 79 consecutive cases of virus infections treated with UBI with patients from early stages to moribund – 78% of the patients recovered including 8 of the 9 that were apparently moribund (near death) Miley, G.P., Christensen, J.A. (1948).
“Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy in Acute Virus and Virus-Like Infections.” Review of Gastroenterology 15:4:271-83 G.J.P. Barger, MD of Georgetown University Hospital, had administered over 2,500 UBI treatments and concurred with the above findings. Dillion, Kenneth J.

Severe cases of Highmoreitis with complications in children following viral infections of facial sinuses found UBI to be very effective. Ozerskii, Yu. Ya. et al., “UBI in Severe Cases of Highmoreitis” [Russian], Vestnik Otorinolaringologii (1995) No. 1 pp 49-50.
Eye Infections – Irido-cyclitis, Uveitis, Retro-bulbar neuritis, Herpes zoster ophthalmicus, keretitis
Ophthalmologists treated 27 patients with UBI using a number of controls. The researchers reported that all cases treated with UBI responded exceptionally well and were discharged in 17.5 days vs. 30.8 days for the control group.

Hepatitis was effectively treated in 2008 with UBI in a trial sponsored by Energex Systems – the treatment was effective on patients who were non-responsive to drug therapy, three with severe chronic hepatitis. They were successfully treated with UBI. They were followed up after 4.5 – 6 years and all were still healthy.
Comment by R.C. Onley, MD: “…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.
