Abstract
An investigation was made on 142 patients suffering from chronic pyelonephritis (62 young and middle-aged patients and 80 aged and senile patients). The efficiency of antibacterial therapy, laser transcutaneous irradiation of kidneys, and intravenous laser irradiation of blood was estimated by the pathogenic properties of urostrains extracted from the patients' urine. The therapeutic effect of the treatment was assessed by bacteriuria, hemolytic and proteolytic properties, urease and adhesive activities, bacteria resistance, and the ability of antibiotics to inactivate bacteria of the serum. It was found that laser transcutaneous irradiation of kidneys and the intravenous laser irradiation of blood combined with antibacterial therapy effectively reduced pathogenicity of urostrains and normalized bacteriuria.
