Paper Abstract

This paper discusses some of our experimental results on the organism immunity increase caused by an intravenous UV irradiation of blood. The rabbits from an experimental group were treated with an optical fiber (620 micrometers core diameter) introduced to vena auricularis superficialis lateralis of the rabbits' ear. Pulsed UV laser emission was introduced through the optical fiber and rabbits' blood was irradiated for 10 minutes with the pulse repetition rate of 10 Hz. Subsequently, all rabbits from the experimental and a reference group were infected with the virulent strain of Staphylococcus aureus H 470. These results clearly indicate that the intravenous UV laser irradiation of blood had a positive therapeutic effect on the course of the animals' staphylococcal infection.
