AB:  Blood and plasma viscosity, total lipids, triglycerides, 
     total cholesterol, free fatty acids, fibrinogen, lipid-gram, 
     and hematocrit were determined in 53 patients with occlusive 
     arteriosclerosis in the lower limbs prior to and after ozone 
     therapy.  At the same time the distance of the intermittent 
     claudication was measured.  A significant prolongation of 
     the distance walked painlessly, reduction in blood and 
     plasma viscosity as well as the decrease in total 
     cholesterol after therapy with ozone correlated with a 
     decrease of the blood viscosity.
