HIV continues to be one of the biggest problems for the global public health. The African region is one of the most affected, accounting for almost two thirds of the new infections. Many of them are retroviral medications and multi-therapies aiming to stop the viral replication and maintaining immunological stability, which fail to guarantee the quality of life or enhance the patient's immunity Ozone has biological properties, among which the antimicrobial and modulatory effect on the immune…

Two known therapies could be useful as adjuvant therapy in critical patients infected by COVID-19?
Theoretical Basements for a Clinical Trial on COVID-19 Patients with Systemic Ozone Therapy
TLDR
It is proposed to carry out a randomized control trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of systemic ozone (indirect endovenous and rectal) in patients affected by COVID19 pandemic.
Could the minor autohemotherapy be a complementary therapy for healthcare professionals to prevent COVID-19 infection?
TLDR
The results of this study reveal that healthcare professionals who were applied minor autohemotherapy worry and anxiety decreased despite decreasing physical activity levels of individuals.
Ozone Therapy and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields Interplay in Controlling Tumor Growth, Symptom and Pain Management: A Case Report
TLDR
The potential use of the combination of these two therapies, ozone therapy and PEMF therapy, can contribute to palliation of cancer patients, alone or in combination with pharmacological therapies.
Could ozone therapy be used to prevent COVID-19?
TLDR
Ozone therapy could be considered as an alternative, easy-to-apply, safe, and inexpensive method in the fight against COVID-19, and may be preventive against coronavirus disease 2019.
Mechanisms of Action of Ozone Therapy in Emerging Viral Diseases: Immunomodulatory Effects and Therapeutic Advantages With Reference to SARS-CoV-2
TLDR
Ozone-driven shift of cytokine activation pathways, from pro-inflammatory to anti-inflammatory immediately afterwards, also exert direct immunoregulatory effects on regulatory T lymphocytes as well as on the intestinal microbiota, which in turn can affect immune response thus influencing the progression of the disease.
Old Treatment for a New Disease: Can Rectal Ozone Insufflation Be Used for COVID-19 Management? A Case Report
TLDR
Rectal O3 insufflation can be used safely as adjuvant management for patients with COVID-19 disease and shows gradual improvement over the next 3 days after therapy and becomes oxygen-independent.

The use of ozone-treated blood in the therapy of HIV infection and immune disease: a pilot study of safety and efficacy.
TLDR
Ozone therapy does not enhance parameters of immune activation nor does it diminish measureable p24 antigen in HIV-infected individuals, and both arms were unaffected by both treatment arms.
Predictors of Virologic and Clinical Outcomes in HIV-1Infected Patients Receiving Concurrent Treatment with Indinavir, Zidovudine, and Lamivudine: AIDS Clinical Trials Group Protocol 320
TLDR
Factors that predicted virologic and clinical responses to treatment with indinavir, zidovudine, and lamivudine in a phase III clinical trial are reported to predict response to regimens that more closely reflect current standards of care.
A controlled trial of two nucleoside analogues plus indinavir in persons with human immunodeficiency virus infection and CD4 cell counts of 200 per cubic millimeter or less. AIDS Clinical Trials Group 320 Study Team.
TLDR
Treatment with indinavir, zidovudine, and lamivudine as compared with zidvudine and lam ivudine alone significantly slows the progression of HIV-1 disease in patients with 200 CD4 cells or fewer per cubic millimeter and prior exposure to zidavudine.
Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 3. An attempt to define conditions for optimal induction of cytokines.
TLDR
Hparin, used as an anticoagulant, with the addition of 5 mM CaCl2 favors production of cytokines by leukocytes with only a modest increase in hemolysis, and autohemotherapy with heparinized and Ca(2+)-supplemented blood has not revealed any side effects in volunteers.

TLDR
Data suggesting that by inhibiting protein tyrosine phosphatases, H2O2 plays an important role as a secondary messenger in the initiation and amplification of signaling at the antigen receptor is reviewed to explain why exposure of lymphocytes to H 2O2 can mimic the effect of antigen.
Hydrogen Peroxide: A Key Messenger That Modulates Protein Phosphorylation Through Cysteine Oxidation
TLDR
The higher levels of intracellular phosphoproteins observed in cells most likely occur because of the concomitant inhibition of protein phosphatases and activation of protein kinases.

Systemic Ozone Therapy by Rectal Insufflation for Immunoglobulin A Deficiency
TLDR
Ozone therapy by rectal insufflation is a suitable therapeutic option for treating IgA deficiency because it produces antioxidant and immunomodulatory effects and is feasible, safe and minimally invasive.
