UVB in Lyme disease

Ultraviolet irradiation of blood, also known as haemo-irradiation, was first used in the 1930s to combat the polio virus and later for other pathogens. By the 1940s and early 1950s, the therapy was already being used for conditions such as pneumonia and tuberculosis.

Unfortunately, the advent of antibiotics meant that this non-invasive method of fighting infections was soon abandoned. But the spread of antibiotic resistance today has brought UV blood irradiation into the spotlight.
