Re: Kill HIV with Photopheresis, Ultra-Violet Blood Irradiation (UBI) Therapies?

I looked over a bit of information I googled about it. I does seem to have a reasonable basis, but as you said, the therapy fell out of favor with the advent of pharacutecials. Perhaps that is because medication is more effective. I don't know.

I do think there is a big obstacle for it to be an effective therapy against HIV. It, like the medications only act against the virus that is actively in the blood and replicating. Neither has any effect over the virus that is in resting state within the gut and lymph nodes. Once therapy is stopped for any lenght of time the virus that is in a resting state will start to replicate.

It will be interesting to see what may come of it.
