BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Ozone therapy is being used to treat ischemic disorders. However, the underlying mechanisms for the success are unknown and the therapy has not been accepted fully within conventional medicine. This study sought to assess the effect of ozone therapy on resting muscle oxygenation. PATIENTS AND DESIGN Twenty-three (23) patients and 3 volunteers were recruited for this prospective study. Systemic ozone therapy was administered by autohemotransfusion on three alternate… Expand

Ozone Therapy on Cerebral Blood Flow: A Preliminary Report
TLDR
This preliminary Doppler study supports the clinical experience of achieving improvement by using ozone therapy in peripheral ischemic syndromes and potential use as a complementary treatment in cerebral low perfusion syndrome merits further clinical evaluation. Expand
Ozone Therapy for Tumor Oxygenation: a Pilot Study
TLDR
Despite being administered over a very short period, ozone therapy improved oxygenation in the most hypoxic tumors, indicating that the more poorly-oxygenated tumors benefited most. Expand
Oxygen–Ozone Therapy in the Rehabilitation Field:State of the Art on Mechanisms of Action, Safety andEffectiveness in Patients with Musculoskeletal Disorders
TLDR
It is suggested that O2O3 therapy seems to reduce pain and improve functioning in patients affected by low back pain and knee osteoarthritis, as reported by several studies in the literature. Expand

TLDR
Critical evaluation of the potential therapeutic utility of this simple, inexpensive medical application by national and international health authorities is warranted and may lead to clinical benefit for a large proportion of the world’s population. Expand
Ozone therapy: A clinical review Review Article
TLDR
In local applications as in the treatment of external wounds, its application in the form of a transcutaneous O 3 gas bath has established itself as being the most practical and useful method. Expand

Ozone (O3) gas discovered in the mid-nineteenth century is a molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen in a dynamically unstable structure due to the presence of mesomeric states. Although O3 hasExpand
Clinical utility of ozone therapy for musculoskeletal disorders
TLDR
Oxygen-ozone (O3) therapy serves as an alternative medical technique that increases the oxygen in the body along with the introduction of O3, and can be used as a more effective and safe substitute of standard medications. Expand
Preliminary Results of Oxygen-ozone Therapy as Support and Palliative Therapy in Cancer Patients with Fatigue
TLDR
Ozone therapy is a valid supportive therapy for fatigue in patients with cancer, both during cancer therapy and in a palliative setting without any significant side effects. Expand
Ozone Therapy as Adjuvant for Cancer Treatment: Is Further Research Warranted?
TLDR
The effects of ozone in modifying hemoglobin dissociation curve, 2,3-diphosphoglycerate levels, locoregional blood flow, and tumor hypoxia provide additional support for potential beneficial effects during cancer treatment. Expand
Is There a Place for Ozone Therapy in Patients with Heart Failure?
TLDR
It would be of interest to know if there were any interruptions of scheduled treatment due to hematomas at the sites of previous venous access; any differences in tolerance to treatment between CHF class 2 and class 3 patients or between patients with versus without anti-aggregant treatment; and (3) differences in patient compliance with the treatment plans.

Hyperbaric oxygen, oxygen-ozone therapy, and rheologic parameters of blood in patients with peripheral occlusive arterial disease.
TLDR
The increase of lipid peri-oxidation, proved by raised malonyldialdehyde plasma levels, seems a likely mechanism involved in the hemorrheologic effects of O2-O3 therapy. Expand
Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 7. Generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) after exposure of human blood to ozone.
TLDR
It is shown that ozone (O3) dissolved in the water of either plasma or serum or physiological saline generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), of which hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) can be unequivocally demonstrated by using specific methods for its detection. Expand
Decrease of blood cholesterol and stimulation of antioxidative response in cardiopathy patients treated with endovenous ozone therapy.
TLDR
It was concluded that endovenous ozone therapy in patients with myocardial infarction has a beneficial effect on blood lipid metabolism, provoking the activation of antioxidant protection system. Expand
Protective effect of ozone treatment on the injury associated with hepatic ischemia-reperfusion: antioxidant-prooxidant balance.
TLDR
A protective effect of ozone treatment is reported on the injury associated to hepatic I/R, related to its action on endogenous antioxidants and prooxidants balance in favour of antioxidants, thus attenuating oxidative stress. Expand
Ozonized autohemotransfusion improves hemorheological parameters and oxygen delivery to tissues in patients with peripheral occlusive arterial disease
TLDR
In conclusion, ozonized autohemotransfusion may be useful to improve both the poor rheological properties of the blood and the oxygen delivery to tissues in patients suffering from POAD. Expand

TLDR
These are the first experimental results showing that repeated administration of ozone in atoxic doses is able to induce an adaptation to oxidative stress thus enabling the animals to maintain hepatocellular integrity after CCl4 poisoning. Expand

TLDR
It is hoped that this review will help to dispel prejudices, to clarify that ozone toxicity can be tamed, to show that ozone can act as a bioregulator and to encourage controlled clinical investigations to evaluate definitely the validity of ozonetherapy. Expand

TLDR
Studies carried out in the laboratory have revealed that ozone can display relevant biological effects and that, having defined its therapeutic index, can become an important and reliable drug for the treatment of several diseases. Expand
Prevention of renal injury after induction of ozone tolerance in rats submitted to warm ischaemia.
TLDR
It is proposed that the O3 protective effect can be ascribed to the substantial possibility of upregulating the antioxidant defence system capable of counteracting the damaging effect of ischaemia. Expand

TLDR
The oxygenation pattern in breast cancers and the occurrence of hypoxia and/or anoxia did not correlate with either the pathological stages and histological grades or with a series of clinically relevant parameters. Expand
