Central Havana Pediatric Hospital, Cuba.

Therapeutic effects of ozone therapy in 22 pediatric patients, 
with diagnosis of secondary immunodeficiencies (humoral and 
cellular), caused by recurrent episodes of acute respiratory 
infections  from the upper and lower respiratory tract , were 
evaluated clinically and immunologically. Rectal ozone 
applications, with doses according to ages, was used in all 
patients. After treatment, clinical improvements, decrease in the 
frequency of episodes and also immunological improvements in the 
parameters studied  were achieved. We did not reported side- 
effects with the use of ozone therapy. New therapeutic 
possibilities are open for secondary immunodeficiencies treatment.
