"since no actual irradiating step was claimed."

But there is an actual irradiating step claimed. It is the first step in the method, and starts with "irradiation." Maybe you mean no irradiating of a patient is claimed.

(As an aside, the mix between passive language and active gerunds in the claims is enough to make me crazy).

Crikey. How little it takes to make you crazy. Get out of the patents business right now, I urge you, for the sake of your health.

Heh, its just the European patents that make me crazy. I guess I'm already used to the eccentricities of the US...
