The aim of this study is to show the possibilities
of treating diseases of the blood vessels, skeletal articular system and
connective tissue through the application of a permanent Magnetic Deep
Unipolar Oriented Field (MADU) on reflexogenic zones (RZ) and smaller
areas or reflexogenic (acupuncture) points (RP). The MADU strip was patented
by MD. PhD. Dusanka Mandic under No. PCT/YU 98/00018, WO 99/60581 as a
technically new non-invasive solution for prevention and therapy both
checked and assessed by the World International Property Organization
Method: The council of medical doctors of various specializations treated
outpatients with diseases of the arteries, and degenerative diseases of
the hip and knee joint. Permanent magnets were applied with a power 10
to 15 times weaker than tested and approved levels prescribed by the World
Health Organization (WHO). The power of the magnetic fields was measured
by a magnetometer [Gaussmeter RFL, Zurich, Switzerland (precision: 10
Gauss to 10 kilogauss)], while the reactive distance and depth of their
influence was measured by a proton magnetometer [Portable Proton Magnetometer
Model G-856A, EG&G, Geometrics, USA (precision: 50 nanoTesla)]. One
or more magnets, in the form of a strip, was placed on the surface of
the body (RZ) and focused like a magnetophore (RP), with the north face
turned towards the skin [North (N) pole or Negative pole (-)]. The strips
were adhered by means of plaster, bandage or pieces of cloth. The magnetic
strips and magnetophores retained contact with the body for a period ranging
from 24 hours to one year according to the patients’ needs, determined
according to their clinical data. The effectiveness of therapy for vascular
diseases was evaluated on the basis of the clinical data, measurements
(in mm) of the vascular gangrenous defects during the period of healing
and the blood vessels’ Color Doppler ultrasonographic findings. The effectiveness
of therapy for the degenerative musculo skeletal diseases was evaluated
according to the score which was achieved through a diagnostic test questionnaire,
containing a section concerning subjective difficulties and assessment
of disabilities, assessment of radiological findings and the objective
measurement of mobility. The author of this questionnaire is Prof. dr.
sc med. Ivan Butkovic
Results: In patients where amputation of the leg was indicated due to
gangrenous disease, the leg was saved in 30% of cases and in follow up
examinations the status of regeneration was confirmed. Within the group
of patients with degenerative skeletal articular diseases, improved condition
was confirmed on the basis of the radiological findings of regeneration
and was found in 67% of the controlled patients. During 12 months of therapy,
according to follow-up examinations, the condition in 20% of the patients
remained the same and in 13% of the patients the disease progressed. The
duration of treatment ranged from five months to two and a half years,
with an average duration of 1.4 years.
Conclusion: When applied for extended periods of time in the form of magnetic
strips and magnetophores, MADU makes possible a regenerative process of
the bone cartilage and soft tissues, as a result of their influence on
vascular, metabolic and enzymic processes. Their regenerative processes
can be so successful that, besides qualitative renewal of the structure

a better and more efficacious function of the joint, with a better quality
During the last century, technical achievements in medicine provided new
and great possibilities in diagnostics and therapy, as we are witnesses
of a new technical age in medicine.
One of the contemporary novelties in medicine, based on ancient techniques
of the application of natural magnetism – a practice more than a thousand
years old, is the new technology in therapy which includes the application
of the MADU magnetic deep unipolar oriented field / Mandic, D, Patent
PTC .Yu 98/00018, WO 99/60581 Surface Magnetized Elastic Magnetic Strip
and Application, P- 214/ 98, number 48907 from August 19th 2002.
The MADU strip, applied as a medical device, has been awarded an internationally
protected patent in 98 countries (PTC). It has also been declared a Novelty
(N), Inventive Step and Industrial Applicability (IA) as per the research
and subsequent assessment of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization)
A magnetic field oriented in this manner, being a type of energy similar
to the biophysical mechanism of living beings, causes principal changes
in an organism. The success of the therapy is interpreted and explained
according to what is known to-date of the pathophysiological performance
mechanism. The following is observed: dipoles are put in order, there
is vasodilatation, liquid viscosity improvement, a spazmolitic effect,
increase in temperature and increase of the metabolic processes in the
exposed tissue, wound healing is accelerated, there is faster haematoma
resorption, and improvement and acceleration of the regeneration process
in various tissues.
The aim of this work is to present the new possibilities and efficacy
of non-invasive therapy on living beings by applying the influence of
a magnetic deep unipolar oriented field (MADU) on damaged tissues.
METHOD AND MEANS
Permanent magnets were used (Ba ferrite and rear earth) with an intensity
10 to 15 times lower than the levels examined and approved by the World
Health Organization / Magnetic fields WHO 1987, Environmental Health Criteria
69, p.20, 127-144 ISBN 92-4 154269 1, ISSN O250-863X. /.
The measurement of magnetic field intensity was performed using a magnetometer
in Gauss or MT [Gaussmeter RFL, Zurich, Switzerland (accuracy: from 10
Gauss to 10 kiloGauss)]. Measurement of the reactive distance, or the
depth of activity, was performed using a proton magnetometer, and the
achieved depth ranged from 1.5 to 55 cm. [Portable proton Magnetometer
Model G-856A, EG&G, Geometric, USA (accuracy: 50 nT- nanoTesla)],
depending on the model of the strip.
General and local effects were observed and interpreted.
Outpatients with diseases of the arteries who had been previously treated
many times by standard medical procedures were treated during a period
of 4 to 20 months or for even more years. The total number of patient
is 72, 21 patients with angiopathia diabetica (21,16%) (MKB-10 179.2-179.8
(E 10- E 14 )), and 51 patients with Stenosis of the blood vessels ( 70.83%)
(MKB -10- 170-179, 173.0 - 173,9,177.1,) International classification
of diseases, 10th revised edition, 1996., ISBN 86-311-0307-1.
The second group of patients included patients of both gender suffering
from degenerative skeletal and articular system diseases such as osteoporosis
and systematic rheumatoid diseases. Statistical evaluation was performed
on 257 patients. The dominant diagnosis was Coxarthrosis (MKB -10, M-16
page 558), and Gonarthrosis (MKB-10, M-17, page 559). These joints, being
the biggest in the human body, usually restricted the ability to function,
so the results achieved during therapy were obvious.
The invention, protected by patent, was used and one or more MADU strips
was applied on the surface of the body, with the North Pole facing the
skin and adhered by adhesive strip, bandage or strips of cloth. Before
placement of the MADU strips, MADU methodology for dipole arrangement
is performed during a period of 30 to 120 minutes. The patients wore the
magnetic strips for 24 hours during a period of days, months or years,
depending on the need of the patients determined by their clinical status
or achieved degree of improvement. It was permitted to remove the magnetic
strips only when bathing. After the placement of magnetic strips, all
patients were supplied with instructions for their use.
The patients with vascular diseases who were treated were permitted to
remove the strips for three days, after having continually worn the strips
for three weeks. After the three days, the strips were reapplied on the
same area or at some other location according to the clinical findings.
The follow-up examination was performed according to the patients’ specific
needs during an interval from one to six weeks, depending on assessed
need. If the follow-up intervals were longer than 21 days, the patients
were contacted by phone concerning their health status, also additional
information was given to patients according to their needs.
Patients suffering from diseases of the skeletal articular system wore
the MADU strips continually for a longer period, not less than six months,
and some patients wore the strips for four years. Treatment before the
placement of the MADU strips and in the follow-up examination was performed
according to the MADU methodology for dipole arrangement.
The council, consisting of specialists for orthopedic surgery and traumatology
and a specialist of physiatry and rehabilitation, performed examinations
of the patients suffering from skeletal and articular system diseases.
For the treatment of those patients suffering from other diseases, appropriate
specialists were called in according to the specific need.
The treatment of animals is performed in cooperation with doctors of veterinarian
Altogether, 72 patients diagnosed with diseases of the arteries were treated.
Before the treatment all patients had increased difficulties lasting from
3 months to 44 years (average 10.36 years) and all had been treated with
usual medical procedures as outpatients or inpatients (hospitalized).
The average age of patients ranged from 32 to 82 years.

In patients suffering from Diabetes mellitus together with gangrenous
changes, improvement was achieved in 7 cases, or 30% of the total number
of 21 patients with the same diagnosis. The group had 10 (47.62%) male
and 11 (52.38%) female patients. The blood sugar level ranged from 3 m
mol/l to 28 m mol/l with an average value of Med= 15,6 m mol/l and mode
value Mod= 15 m mol/l. The average level of cholesterol in those patients
was 7.58 m mol/l. As
an accompanying difficulty, 19.35% of patients had arterial hypertension.
Before using the MADU method, 41.93% of patients had one or more therapy
series in a hyper baric chamber. The patients suffering from Diabetes
mellitus together with gangrenous changes had already been treated at
various clinics and had shown indications for the need of finger or limb
amputation, and came for therapy after having refused the radical method
(amputation). Due to the same disease, 6 patients were treated who had
already had one leg amputated and who refused amputation of the other
The total number of patients with various stenoses of arteries in different
locations was 51 (70.83%), 38 male (74.51%) and 13 female (25.49%). Among
those patients, 35 (68.62%) of the total number of 51 - thus the majority
- were patients with “smoker’s leg”, having smoked tobacco from 6 to 40
years. The total number of tobacco smokers was 64.52%, of which 19.35%
had stopped smoking.
Patients felt the earliest improvement even during the first procedure
and at last had a good night’s sleep. The patients were treated using
MADU strips alongside standard therapy for a period of approximately 21.75
months, or 1 year and 9.75 months. This period is probably not definitive,
because after establishing the stable status of vascularisation it is
necessary to keep the status of oxygenation at the highest possible level.
The second group of patients suffers from diseases of the skeletal and
articular system. Statistically, 257 patients were examined with the most
frequent diagnosis of Coxarthrosis.
In 67% of the total number of observed patients, improvement of the status
of the treated skeletal and articular region was achieved, in 20% of the
patients the stopping of the pathological process occurred – even though
by its nature it is always progressive, and in 13% of the patients the
pathological process progressed and led to the destruction of bone structures
as if therapy had not been applied.

The following of the results was performed according to the number of
gained points (from the maximum 100) at the first and following follow-up
examinations during 1.5 to 2 years. (Table I.)
Patients gained at the first follow-up examination an average 60.89 points
(the minimum number of points was 26 and maximum was 100). At the second
follow-up examination patients gained an average 68.09 points (minimum
31 points and maximum 95 points), and at the third follow-up examination
patients gained an average 75.41 points (minimum 47 points and maximum
The increase in the number of points shows the increase in the quality
of life of the treated patients. The questionnaire was formed with a maximum
of 100 points so the increase of the quality of life could be presented
Testing the hypothesis of the relation between the first and third follow
up examinations for the interval of reliability for the probability P=
0.95 it is significantly higher, p<0.001.
The positive effect of MADU strip application in the treatment of the
patients is based on several different mechanisms of performance, Tenforde
T. S. (1992); Frankel R.B., Liburdy R. P.(1995) starting with the modulation
of the potential of NA /K pump through the cells’ membranes, Sadafi H.
(1998) through the synchronization with endogen oscillations of Ca++ ions
in the rhythm of geomagnetic activity, Berridge M.J., Galione A. (1988);
Berridge M.J., Bootman M.D. (1998) to the conformation changes of the
One of the most famous and earliest discovered mechanisms of permanent
magnetic field activity is the analgesic and antinflamation effect which
fundamentally improves tissue vascularisation caused by increased blood
circulation and metabolic functions. Lawrence R., Rosch P.J., Plowden
J. (1998); Kniazeva T.A., Otto M.P., Markarov G.S., Donova O.M., Markarova
I.S. (1994). Circulation improves in the magnetic field because of the
spasmolitic function associated with the improvement of blood viscosity
Gorczynska E. (1988); Lud G.V. (1986), as well as oxygenation not only
in tissues, Tiller W.A. (1997) but also in erythrocytes Traikov L. (1996).
Closer mechanism effects are related to the magnetic characteristics of
substances exposed to the action of the unipolar oriented magnetic field
causing an adequate response in relation to the force lines and vector
direction. It is scientifically confirmed that in the magnetic field the
dipoles and ions are arranged regularly like palisades, with the positive
pole oriented towards the negative pole of the magnet. Baermann H.M. (2000).
The separation of the particles charged with electricity is proportional
to the field’s power, speed of the particles’ movement and angle between
the direction of electricity and magnetic field’s vector. Zablotsky T.J.
(2000) An important effect of the negative pole action also represents
a neutralisation of the pH of tissue liquid with dominant alcalization,
Tiller W.A. (1997) which improves many of the enzymes’ activities, especially
that of metallic enzymes - which represent one third of the total number
of all the enzymes in an organism. The great influence in the behavior
of liquid exposed to a magnetic field can be observed in water, which
not only changes its conformation cluster structure but also the crystallization
form of diluted calcium carbonate, Kmecl P., Jerman I., Škarja M. (2000)
which is probably true for other dilluted substances.
The grateast contribution to antiinflamatory, spasmolytic and antithrombotic
effects of the magnetic field is the inhibitory effect on the production
of cytokines, interleukine 1 [interleukine 1 (IL-1)] and tumor necrosis
factor [tumor necrosis factor (TNF)] from many cells, Ryaby J.T. (1996);
Lo Casto ... (2000), especially epithelial and macrophages. Mehta S. (1996)
Suppression of these proinflamatory cytokines accompanies the additional
increase of interleukine 2 secretion [interleukine 2 (IL-2)] from the
normal human T- lymphocytes. Mehta S. (1996). The IL-2 increase is important
because IL-2 regulatory cytokine, which has effects on the growth of human
T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes, also stimulates the natural defense mechanism
through natural killer cells [NK (natural killer) cells].
Activated endothelial cells can produce cytokines, such as IL-1 or TNF,
Terr A.I. (1994) although they may be of extra vascular origin. Ridker
P.M., Genest J., Libby P. (2001) IL-2 and TNF in blood vessel endothelium
cause many changes, starting from permeability increase and structural
cell reorganization,approaching and molecule adhesion on them. Libby P.
(2001), Libby P. (2001) .
The increase of metabolic activity achieved by the action of the magnetic
field is improved by the phagocyte ability of macrophages and microphages,
Kubota H., Nishimura I., Negishi T. (2000) as well as the production of
NO from them, a very potent vasodilatator.
Uninjured endothelium cells, which normally secrete antitrombocyte factors,
prostacycline (PGL2) and NO that prevent trombocyte adherence and aggregation,
Mitchell R.N., Cotran R.S. (1999) increase their metabolism under the
influence of the magnetic field, intensifying their production of these
substances. NO manifests its vasodilatation effects in the increase of
the production of the intracellular inhibitor (IkBa) expressing the gene
transcriptional regulator of the nuclear factor - kappa B [nuclear factor
kappa B (NK?B)].Libby P. (2001). The NK?B system generally regulates many
genes included in the inflamatory responses, particulary in aterogenesis,
Peng H.B., Libby P., Liao J.K. (1995). Besides, released NO secretes into
postsynaptic space and connects to the iron chem-group of the soluble
enzyme guanylyl cyclase, activating itself and acting on guanosine triphoshate
[guanosine triphosphate (GTP)], increasing production of cyclic guanosine
monophosphate [cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)], through which the
effect of NO is achieved. Iron is a powerful ferromagnetic element on
which the magnetic field has a fundamental influence, whereby NO production
is increased and vasodilatation and antitrombocyte effects are strengthened.
Tissue metabolism improvement also improves the enzyme activity of the
cells, especially the catabolic activity of metal proteinasis that decelerates
and stops the synthesis of extra cellular matrix and stops accumulation
on the arteries’ walls. Thus conditions for the stop of the pathological
processes are created, as well as for the easier removal of ateromatose
changes, which together with vasodilatation causes improvement of tissue
The suppression of the production of IL/1 influenced by a magnetic field
decreases its action to selectively damage pancreas b cells and causes
changes in the insulin level in plasma.Oppenheim J.J., Ruscetti F.W.,
Faltynek C. (1994) It additionally improves tissue metabolism, especially
in persons with insulin secretion disturbances and resultant weak glucosis
Damaged nerve fibers are then renewed and innervations are established
in the affected area, as confirmed by vitro researches. Herbst E., Resig
P., Ranney S., Sisken B.F. (2000); Sisken B.F., Midkiff P., Twehues A.,
Trumbo R. (2000) In that way, through the action of the magnetic field,
all conditions are established for better regeneration of the damaged
tissue, achieved by better vascularisation and oxygenation, Gmitrov J.,
Ohkubo C. (1999) faster connective tissue maturation, reduction of fibrous,
scar tissue, Detlavs I. (1996) and epithelization improvement, which leads
to complete wound healing. Semrov D. (1996)
Besides these mechanisms, regenerative processes on the skeletal and articular
system refer to the following:
Modulation potential of the K/Na pumps through cell
membranes Sadafi H. (1998) through synchronization with endogen oscillations
of Ca ++ ions in the rhythm of geomagnetic activity, Berridge M.J., Galione
A. (1988); Berridge M.J., Bootman M.D. (1998) then to the conformation
changes of water molecules, Olarsch G. (1999) like antennas.
Regenerative processes can be so successful that besides
qualitative renewal of the bone structure and pain removal it can lead
to disappearance of sclerosed joint fissures and the formation of a new
one, leading to improvement or the return of articulation functions.
In the cartilage tissue of the articulation synovial liquid it is possible
for the action of the magnetic field to have extreme positive effects
on the water molecules and bio molecules. The basic content of cartilage
matrix in terms of water and biomolecules are proteoglicanes of articular
cartilage, macromolecules of a basic substance, which consists of glicosamineglicane
(chialuronate, chondroine sulpahate, and keratin sulphate) Voet D. Voet
J.G. (1995) and proteins connected by covalent and non-covalent connections
to a big negative electricity charge, also responsible for the large amount
of BONDED WATER. Krane S. M., Neer R. M. Hyaluronic acid as a main axial
glicosamine glicane is the most responsible for the polianion characteristics,
because its lateral remains has an anion nature, so it tightly connects
to cations such as Na+, K+, and Ca++. Those structural characteristics,
with a big molecule mass and numerous anion groups, give to every chialouronate
a large volume and specific hardness. The big volume and accompanying
chialouronate rigidity are particularly important if we consider that
one hydratated molecule occupies a space 1000 times bigger than a molecule
in dehydrated, dry state. Voet D., Voet J.G. 1995. In cartilage tissue
65 - 80 % of the weight consists of water.
For the regeneration of chialine cartilage, the optimum Ph is 7.6. The
cell membrane is charged with negative electricity and positive ions are
moved through the cell membrane which is important for potential dependent
chanels (volt depending) and the existing ligand dependant chanels or
METHAPLASION FROM THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE
The bioelectric conception of the regulation function of connective tissue
in bones, cartilage and tendons, and other tissues exposed to the action
of mechanic powers, is based on the biological hypothesis of the function
of natural biomolecules in the extracellular matrix like that of biosensores
and conductors, which have similar conduction to the nerves. Regling G.
(2000). According to this hypothesis, the net of the collagen fibres represent
a universal bioelectric and/or signal system of bioelectromagnetic energy
composed of charged biomolecules of collagen fibres functioning on the
level of an electrical potential much smaller than those with current
effects, which provides a biological perception of the stimulus and signal
conduction. Djordjevic D. , Mandic D. (2001)
