Lupus Erythematosus Studied With PEMF Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Fields Therapy
This review article examined the data concerning pulsed magnetic fields in the treatment of lupus erythematosus. Studies indicate that the treatment can be beneficial due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, its positive action on microcirculation, and immunological reactivity.

Results of this study indicated that the bitemporal application of ultrahigh frequency electromagnetic fields to the hypothalamo-hypophyseal area daily over a period of 18-20 days had beneficial effects in patients suffering from systemic lupus erythematosus.
