Therapy Effects of Ozonized Oil (Oleozon) in the Treatment of 
Giardiasis

F. Piñol, N. Cedeño, W. Díaz.

Giardia lamblia is a cosmopolite protozoan that, nowadays, creates 
serious problems of health because of the amount of symptoms that 
accompany its infection. Fifty patients from 17 to 55 years old 
suffering of giardiasis were studied. The diagnosis was confirmed 
by duodenal gavage or stool. The patients  received  daily 2 
capsules of OLEOZON of 1 mL each (one in the morning and one in 
the night) during 10 days. Afterwards, stop treatment for 1 week 
and repeat the cycle the same as the first one. As healing 
criterion, the absence of cysts or trophozoites of Giardia 
lamblia, in a sample of duodenal superficial tissue under 
endoscopic sight, was considered. The results demonstrated that 
there was 67 % of parasitologic healing and 85 % of improvement in 
the inflammatory process that accompanies this disease (gastritis, 
duodenitis).
