A short survey is given of the historical development and the 
physical basis of ozone therapy. Ozone is used in medicine as well as 
in other spheres. Papers reporting good results of ozone treatment in 
carcinoma seemed of particular interest. The efficacy of ozone as an 
adjuvant to the irradiation of carcinosarcomas of rats was confirmed 
by us. On account of this fact ozone was introduced by us as an 
adjuvant to the irradiation of women with gynaecological cancer and 
appeared to give good results. The mechanism of action of ozone is 
not yet fully clarified and several theories are discussed. 
Investigations are currently being undertaken in respect to the 
behaviour of several substances in the organism during ozone therapy.
