During  five years (1991-1995) we have used ozone therapy in the 
treatment of different diseases that are present in the elderly, 
for example upper and lower respiratory infections, arthrosis, 
pneumonia, immunodeficiency. A statistical analysis showed 
improvement in more than 80 % of the treated patients. No side-
effects or intolerance was present among the patients treated with 
ozone. It is concluded that ozone therapy is an important 
therapeutic option to be considered in geriatric patients.
