Abstract:

Evaluation of ozone effect, by rectal insufflation, on lipid 
metabolism and antioxidant defense system in hypercholesterolemia 
versus normocholesterolemia conditions was performed.  Our results 
proved that there was a positive effect in cholesterol metabolism and 
in the stimulation of the antioxidative defense system, suggesting a 
close relationship between cholesterol catabolism and antioxidant 
defense activation in hypercholesterolemia state.
