Kill HIV with Photopheresis, Ultra-Violet Blood Irradiation (UBI) Therapies?
      04/13/10 05:26 PM

I've read a little about Photopheresis and Ultra-Viole Blood Irradiation (UBI) therapies being performed by M.D.'s across the U.S., Europe, Russia and Germany. It seems that these procedures have been done for quite some time, but fell out of popularity with the advent of big pharmaceutical firms in the 1960s. The concept of UBI seems simple and the procedure is easy and it appears that it would be very beneficial to people with HIV. Doctors all over the world, including at Yale University, perform the procedure for Auto-Immune System Disorders, cancers or colds, Flu, etc. So, why isn't this therapy recommended by doctors for people living with HIV and why aren't our doctors promoting research? It's also reasonably priced, painless, and easy to perform. Would this help HIV patients if it was performed once or twice a year or used as an alternative to pill therapy? Does anyone have experience with or more information about these types of therapies?
