Transfusions of ultraviolet-irradiated plasma were carried out in 30 pyelonephritis patients. Subjective sense of improvement, and relief of fever and intoxication were noted. The administration of ultraviolet-irradiated plasma had a controlling effect on lipid peroxidation and blood cortisol, aldosterone and insulin levels, contributed to the normalization of corticosteroid catabolism and stimulated energy metabolism and the antioxidant system. Products of plasma photochemical reaction to ultraviolet irradiation have immunomodulating effects. Treatment of pyelonephritis patients by ultraviolet-irradiated plasma transfusions has shortened the time of hospital stay.
