Extremely Low Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Prevent Chemotherapy Induced MyelotoxicityRossi E, Corsetti MT, Sukkar S, Poggi C.
Side effects of chemo-radiotherapy reduce the quality and also the survivability of patients. The consequent fatigue and infections, related to myelodepression, act to reduce the dose-intensity of the protocol. Late side effects of chemo-radiotherapy include secondary tumours, acute myeloid leukemias and cardiotoxicity. Side effects of chemotherapy are related to oxidative stress produced by the treatment. Oxidative stress also reduces the efficacy of the treatment. Antioxidative treatment with natural (dietetic) or chemical agents has been reported to reduce the toxicity of chemo-radiotherapy and improve the efficacy of treatment. We here report our experience with SEQEX, an electromedical device that generates Extremely Low Frequency ElectroMagnetic Fields (ELF-EMF) to produce endogenic cyclotronic ionic resonance, to reduce myelotoxicity consequent to ABVD protocol in patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Effects of cyclotronic ion resonance on human metabolic processes: a clinical trial and one case report.Vallesi G, Raggi F, Rufini S, Gizzi S, Ercolani E, Rossi R.
We studied the effects of ion cyclotron resonance (Seqex) magnetic therapy on the blood of thirty two healthy volunteers. They received 15 treatments each 27 minutes in length, distributed over 5 weeks. The concentrations of two blood components, malondialdehyde (MDA) and cholesterol were measured in each subject, immediately before and immediately after the 15 treatments as well as one month after the final treatment. Highly significant reductions in MDA concentrations, averaging 53.8% were noted just after the 15 treatments, tending to return to the original concentrations one month later. The effect on HDL and LDL cholesterol levels were not significant. The implication of this work is that this type of therapy may be useful in dealing with oxidative stress.

Cyclotronic ion resonance therapy and arthralgia.Ciafaloni A.
A total of 143 patients suffering various musculoskeletal disorders including rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, osteoporosis, and post-surgical discomfort were subjected to ELF magnetic treatments using the Seqex device. A clear trend in pain reduction was observed over the 10 treatment regimen as well as a stabilization of relevant lab tests, including cholesterol level and blood pressure. Improvements were also noted in posturometric footboard tests. An additional 20 patients with various neuromuscular difficulties were treated with Seqex as well as magentic "concentrators" for periods ranging from 3 to 10 treatments. Similar improvements in pain reduction were observed in this smaller group.

The autistic syndrome and endogenous ion cyclotron resonance: state of the art.Crescentini F.
The autistic syndrome is a multigenic disease whose expression is different according to the level of involvement of different structures in the central nervous system. The pathogenesis is unknown. No completely effective medical therapy has yet been demonstrated. Accepting the request of the families of eight autistic children in Lomazzo, Milan and Naples, we used ion cyclotron resonance (Seqex therapy) therapeutic support after many other therapies had been already carried out on these patients. After regimens consisting of 20-30 treatments with ICR, improvements were noted in all cases.

Utilization of extremely low frequency (ELF) magnetic fields in chronic disease; five years experience: three case reports.Mancuso M, Ghezzi V, Di Fede G.
We present three examples of the use of ELF magnetic therapy, two cases of multiple sclerosis and one of chronic pulmonary disease. In each of the two MS cases the Seqex device was applied as an adjunct to antioxidant medication two times a week for six weeks. Radiological and MRI examination indicated improvement in the two MS patients and stabilization in the patient with obstructive pulmonary disease following merely five treatments.

ELF magnetic therapy and oxidative balance.Raggi F, Vallesi G, Rufini S, Gizzi S, Ercolani E, Rossi R.
Knowledge about the relationship between exposure to extremely low-frequency (ELF) EMF and formation (or neutralization) of free radicals in the living cells is limited. Studies performed on animals and plants have shown conflicting effects on the relation between EMF and oxidative stress. Very few experiments have been performed on humans. The present study reports on the effects of an ELF magnetic therapy device (Seqex) on oxidative scale in humans. This device supplies complex magnetic signals with specific choices of frequency, intensity, and shape that are based on Liboff's ion cyclotron resonance hypothesis. Thirty-two healthy volunteers were treated using the Seqex cycle. A quantitative determination of oxidative stress was obtained at three time points by measuring Malondialdehyde (MDA) concentrations in peripheral blood before and after the cycle and one month following completion of the cycle. A highly significant reduction in mean MDA (53.8%, p = 0.0002) was found at the end of the treatment. One month later the mean MDA had again risen, but there was still a significant overall reduction of 15.6% (p = 0.010) compared to original values.
