TI: Immunological Examinations in Patients with Chronic Conditions Under Administration of Ozone/Oxygen Mixtures DT: July 1989 AU: J. Washuttl, R. Viebahn and I. Steiner SO: Ozone Science & Engineering Vol. II, pp. 411-417 AB: In four groups of patients with chronic conditions receiving an ozone application (intravascular administration of ozone/oxygen mixtures with or without autohemotherapy), the immunoglobulins IgA, IgG and IgM were determined in serum; in groups 1 and 2, lysozyme and vitamin A values also were measured. The groups were broken down as follows: Group 1: 19 patients with carcinoma of the cervix. Group 2: 20 patients with carcinoma of the ovaries. Group 3: patients with chronic conditions (80% patients with rheumatoid arthritis), short-term study (34 patients). Group 4: patients with chronic conditions (80% patients with rheumatoid arthritis), long-term study (47 patients). A further breakdown into statistical categories in groups 1 and 2 showed no significant changes in the immunoglobulins examined, including the vitamin A and lysozyme values. A short-term influence in group 3 became evident through a significant increase in immunoglobulin G, whereas no significant decrease was observed in all immunoglobulins in group 4. An immunosuppressive effect of the ozone applied could not be detected in any of the 4 groups.
