A study with 80 patients suffering from A, B, C hepatitis, since 
August 1996, in "Octavio de la Concepción y de la Pedraja 
Hospital, Camagüey (Cuba) was performed. Patients, between 17 and 
45 years old, were checked before in our laboratory, in order to 
verify the diagnoses of hepatitis. Conventional treatment (repose 
and diet prescripted) plus ozone therapy was applied to 40 
patients, the other 40 patients only received conventional 
treatment. Ozone was administered, daily, by rectal way (dose = 
10mg), for a total of 15 sessions. During the first week of 
treatment, remission of all the symptoms took place as well as the 
enlargement of the liver, improving their conditions and their 
appetite. All patients were totally cured at the end of the 
treatment. Under the conventional treatment these symptoms remain 
for more than 10 days and the totally cure was achieved 
approximately 6 moths later. Comparing these results we can say 
that ozone therapy is a suitable treatment against hepatitis, 
improving the patients health and the healing time of the disease.
