The work presents the results of the treatment with ozone/oxygen 
mixtures at the Ozone Therapy Department of N. Novgorod Diagnostic 
Center for a two-year period. The treatment was performed with 
"Kvazar" ozonators. The followed patients had most common 
pathologies in clinical practice: atherosclerotic vessels -38.5 %, 
joints diseases -10 %, gastrointestinal disorders -20 %, diabetes 
mellitus -4 %. Ozone therapy was found to be highly effective. 
Positive results with double reduction of symptoms were received 
in 95 % patients with ischemic heart disease, 92 % with brain 
vessels disorders, 89 % with chronic gastritis, 80 % with gastric 
and duodenal ulcer, 86 % with osteoarthrosis deformans, 88 % 
patients with obliterating atherosclerosis of lower extremities 
could increase the painless walk distance in no less than 3 times. 
Hyperglycemia was reduced in all patients with diabetes mellitus. 
On the basis of clinical observations, bichemical, electro and 
echocardiography data, endoscopic and cytomorphologic tests there 
were developed treatment protocols in different diseases. 
Intravenous injections of ozonated solutions and rectal 
insufflations in atherosclerotic disorders; minor autohemotherapy, 
intestinal insufflations and peroral use of ozonated water and oil 
in gastro-intestinal diseases; intra-articular and subcutaneous 
infusions of ozone/oxygen mixtures in joints diseases were used. 
On the basis of long-term observations new programmes of 
preventive treatment with the use of ozone therapy are being 
developed for different nosological groups of patients.
