Mechanism of UBT


Ultraviolet Blood Therapy (UBT) involves drawing 60cc of blood, exposing it to ultraviolet light and re-infusing it slowly at the withdrawal site. UBT’s mechanism is not fully understood. Suffice it to say that the UV light enables the immune system to recognize the pathogens in the blood and eradicate them.  UBT enables the body to use its immune system to cure itself.

NOTE: The original term for UBT was UV Blood Irradiation (UBI)

  • Within minutes, oxygen levels rise and can remain higher for weeks after the treatments; vasodilation occurs; Cyanosis (blue coloration) tends to clear up rapidly, metabolism improves, lower extremity circulation improves. “The Ultraviolet Irradiation of Auto-transfused Human Blood: Studies in Oxygen Absorption Values: American Journal of Medicine Sciences, June 1939, p 873. Miley.
  • Tissues improve the ability to extract oxygen. Even though arteries remain occluded, feet may feel warm because of tissue oxygen extraction. Frick G. Fibel der Ultraviolettbestrahlung des Blutes. Greifwald: Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Universitaet Greifswald, (1989).
  • Platelets benefit from UBI. When deformed as a result of disease, UBI seems to reshape them into a normal pattern. Serotonin in platelets give off a faint luminescence following UBI while platelets themselves can give off a strong luminescence in plasma. They also develop greater electrophoretic mobility. I.N. Piksin et al., “UBT in surgery” [Russian], Khirurgiia (1990), No 11 pp100-4.
  • Red blood cells register changes in their membranes including expression of antigens. There is improvement in rheological (flow) characteristics and a drop in blood viscosity. Red blood cell aggregation is greatly reduced as is their deformation. Similar changes take place in platelets.
  • UBI increases the activation of circulating lgM (by 2-16 times), lgG (by 2-4 times) and complement (by 2-4 times), i.e. it rapidly activates these factors of nonspecific immune defense.
  • UBI boosts the antioxidative capacity of the blood by activating peroxidase. This activation has reached 40-50% above normal levels. I.N. Piksin et al., “UBI in Surgery” [Russian], Khirurgiia (1990), No 11 pp102.
