AB  - HIV infection can be transferred by blood, blood products and
      organ transplantation. In traumatic surgery allogeneic bone
      transplantation is commonly used for reconstruction in severe
      bone injuries. This technique has been abandoned since the
      appearance of reports of infections with HIV. In an experimental
      in vitro study we showed that ozone treatment cannot inactivate
      HIV in bone for transplantation.
