Title

Ozone therapy, a supplement for patients with fibromyalgia

Author

Vélez, Brenda P. Longas

Abstract

Fibromyalgia is a disease of unknown cause whose main symptom is chronic widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by symptoms that disrupt daily activities of patients. In this study the impact of ozone therapy in improving patients' pain and daily activities to give them a better quality of life was assessed. Clinical experience is described using ozone therapy in 30 women aged 30-65 years diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) 6-9, with a time of disease progression between 1-10 years. Patients were treated with O2-O3 intramuscular with 10 sessions 2 times a week at doses of 15 mg / mL, together were administered systemically 10 sessions 2 times a week alternating rectal insufflation and intravenous administration of saline 0.9% ozonated. The outcome of patients was continued by monitoring clinical symptoms and evaluation of the Visual Analogue Scale. The results showed an improvement in pain with 33% VAS 3-4 in the second week, improved sleep disorder in 46.6%, mood and daily activities by 40% and appreciated a decrease in the amount of drugs consumed by 30% of patients. The ozone therapy can be considered as an interesting as adjuvant therapy in the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Abstract

Ozone therapy is currently being used in the treatment of ischemic disorders, but the underlying mechanisms that result in successful treatment are not well known. This study assesses the effect of ozone therapy on the blood flow in the middle cerebral and common carotid arteries. Seven subjects were recruited for the therapy that was performed by transfusing ozone-enriched autologous blood on 3 alternate days over 1 week. Blood flow quantification in the common carotid artery (n = 14) was performed using color Doppler. Systolic and diastolic velocities in the middle cerebral artery (n = 14) were estimated using transcranial Doppler. Ultrasound assessments were conducted at the following three time points: 1) basal (before ozone therapy), 2) after session #3 and 3) 1 week after session #3. The common carotid blood flow had increased by 75% in relation to the baseline after session #3 (P < 0.001) and by 29% 1 week later (P = 0.039). In the middle cerebral artery, the systolic velocity had increased by 22% after session #3 (P = 0.001) and by 15% 1 week later (P = 0.035), whereas the diastolic velocity had increased by 33% after session #3 (P < 0.001) and by 18% 1 week later (P = 0.023). This preliminary Doppler study supports the clinical experience of achieving improvement by using ozone therapy in peripheral ischemic syndromes. Its potential use as a complementary treatment in cerebral low perfusion syndromes merits further clinical evaluation.

Title

[Ozone therapy of migraine]

Author

Kotov, S A

Abstract

Application of ozone therapy was based on the notions of a significant role of lipid peroxidation in the pathogenesis of migraine attacks. A therapy was performed in form of intravenous infusions of the ozonized physiologic solutions with ozone, concentration 1200 micrograms/l; a therapy course included 8-9 procedures. 68 patients with migraine attacks, followed by the pronounced autonomic changes, that developed in the frequency range from 5-6 times a year to 2-3 times a week were examined. 40 patients formed a study group and 28 individuals control one (in a control group the physiologic solution was used without ozone). The intensity of a headache, the expression of an anxiety, the state of the vessels of the brain and some biochemical indices were determined. Positive dynamics of the disease was 25% higher in the study group than made up a those in the controls (p < 0.05). In 58% of the patients the attacks were absent during 3-5 months after ozone therapy; less intensity of headache was observed after their relapse. Improvements in the patients coincides with changes in biochemical parameters.
