AB:  Ozone, an allotropic form of oxygen, possesses unique 
     properties which are being defined and applied to biological 
     systems as well as to clinical practice.  As a molecule 
     containing a large excess of energy, ozone, through 
     incompletely understood mechanisms, manifests bactericidal, 
     virucidal and fungicidal actions which may make it a 
     treatment of choice in certain conditions and an adjunct to 
     treatment in others.
