Blood and blood components are usually irradiated using gamma radiation from Cs or 60 Co sources, or X-radiation from X-ray units. Blood irradiation specifications include a lower limit of absorbed dose, and may include an upper limit or central target dose. Food irradiation (the application of ionizing radiation to food) is a technology that improves the safety and extends the shelf life of foods by reducing or eliminating microorganisms and insects.
Guidelines for the Blood Transfusion Services in the UK 8th Edition. The 'Red Book' (as the printed version of these guidelines are known) aims to define guidelines for all materials produced by the United Kingdom Blood Transfusion Services for both therapeutic and diagnostic use. Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation Therapy (“UVBI”) is a scientifically accurate name given to what has previously been called PhotoBiologic therapy, Photophoresis, and Photoluminescence (among other names). UVBI has been used for many years to deactivate bacteria, viruses, fungi, toxins, and other invading organisms.
In the remaining part of this article, I limit my comments to ozone, ultraviolet blood irradiation, hydrogen peroxide, and high dose vitamin C. Ozone, ultraviolet irradiation, and high dose vitamin C act as prodrugs that trigger the production of other oxidizing agents like hydrogen peroxide. Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) was extensively used in the s and s to treat many diseases including septicemia, pneumonia, tuberculosis, arthritis, asthma, and even poliomyelitis However, with the development of antibiotics, the use of UBI declined and it has now been called “the cure that time forgot” the modern.

Ken Dillon, PhD is the author of the definitive book about Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation therapy. I have read other texts on this subject over the years and am happy to say that Dr.
Dillon's book is rated #1 in my opinion. I have used this therapy on thousands of clients and have witnessed incredible results in respect to their by: 3. Campbell's book "into the Light" is a must read if you believe in alternative medicine.
I can't believe how nieve doctors are when it comes to using what Dr. Campbell writes in his is sad that we can't get the FDA to approve of this life-saving treatment.
On a scale of stars it is 10 by: 2. Ken Dillion and his book, “Healing Photons – The Science and Art of Blood Irradiation History” is a highly recommended read. It is encouraged that you purchase the book, either by contacting us or through Scientia Press.
The following pages are an attempt to categorize the studies of UBI or LBI. Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) was extensively used in the s and s to treat many diseases including septicemia, pneumonia, tuberculosis, arthritis, asthma, and even poliomyelitis. The early studies were carried out by several physicians in USA and published in the American Journal of by: Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections.
With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells. the effects of ionizing radiation on whole blood, blood cells, and other blood components. It presents the interested reader with sufficient information and data to facilitate rational decisions in relation to the feasibility of irradiation of blood and blood products for the purposes stated above.
Naswitis irradiated the blood directly through a shunt. In an attempt to irradiate the blood outside the body using a system that would circulate the patient’s blood through an irradiation chamber and then back to the patient, Emmet Knott developed in the s a precursor to the machinery we use today.
By the early ’s UV blood irradiation was being used in several American hospitals. Into the middle of the ’s, numerous reports were made about the efficacy for infections and complete safety of UV blood irradiation therapy.
One type of Gamma irradiation chamber is the Blood Irradiator. Irradiation of blood & blood products by gamma rays is a proven and safe method eliminate the risk of post transfusion graft versus host disease Gamma Irradiation Chambers are also used extensively in academic institutions for.
As described in the Technical Manual (19th Edition) and Circular of Information (October ), cellular blood components are irradiated prior to transfusion to prevent the proliferation of viable T lymphocytes which are the immediate cause of Transfusion Associated-Graft Versus Host Disease (TA-GVHD).
The authors report a bacteriostatic effect of He-Ne laser irradiation on Tb growth. Endovascular blood irradiation used in 85 tuberculous patients induced no side effects. Ten-twelve sessions relieved the symptoms of tuberculosis-related intoxication, reduced the.

Irradiated blood is given to prevent rare complications of transfusion called transfusion- associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GvHD). What TA-GvHD. TA-GvHD is a rare but serious complication of blood transfusion caused by white blood cells (lymphocytes) in the blood transfused.
Irradiation (or pathogen inactivation) of blood products, by γ-irradiation or X-ray, is performed to prevent transfusion-associated graft-versus-host disease (TA-GVHD). TA-GVHD is a rare and almost universally fatal complication of blood transfusion that has no consistently successful treatment : Richard O.
Francis. GUIDELINES FOR IRRADIATION OF BLOOD AND BLOOD COMPONENTS I. INTRODUCTION Transfusion-associated graft-vs-host disease (TA-GVHD) is a serious risk for certain severely immunosuppressed or immunodeficient patients.
Cellular components for at-risk patients should be irradiated with a minimum of 2, cGy (rads) prior to transfusion. Abundant Literature reports on the successful therapeutic use of Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation over many decades. Niels Ryberg Finsen is considered the father of Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation.
In the s, he treated various skin conditions with concentrated light radiation and discovered the curative power of different colors of light. Booklets, Resources. Great Synopsis on UBI – This is the best comprehensive gathering of data on UBI in one report put out by a doctor who used UBI extensively at their clinic.
I *Highly Recommend* this as a great medical report “The Cure that Time Forgot” this medical journal Published Report is 17 pages long and summarizes much of what is said about UBI.
Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) For access to blog, article, podcast, shareable quotes: Get Dr. Roberts’ new book: http://a. In this book, Dr.
Douglass describes an earlier method of treating bacterial and viral infections called UV blood irradiation therapy, in which blood was drawn from the patient and then irradiated under UV light, before injecting the blood back to the patient.
Please see specific component monograph (i.e., RBCs, Platelets, Granulocytes, or Whole Blood) for dosing as there is no difference on dosing irradiated blood products from non-irradiated blood products.
Patients receiving products from first-degree relatives* or HLA-matched donors regardless of patient’s immune status. Blood irradiation specifications include a lower limit of ab sorbed dose, and may include an upper limit or central target dose. For a given application, any of these values may be.How Is Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation therapy performed?
The UBI procedure involves inserting a small catheter (similar to giving blood) into a vein in the forearm. A small amount of blood, approximately 20 to 60 cc is removed with a sterile technique. It is placed into a bag with a sterile sodium solution; heparin is added to prevent clotting.
Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI) was extensively used in the s and s to treat many diseases including septicemia, pneumonia, tuberculosis, arthritis, asthma and even poliomyelitis. The early studies were carried out by several physicians in USA Cited by: 1.
