Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of ozone therapy in breast cancer-related Lymphedema (BCRL). Methods: Sixty patients with BCRL were participated in this study and were randomly assigned to one of two groups. Ozone group received ozone therapy in addition to complex physical therapy for lymphedema consisted of pressure garment, remedial exercise, and skin care, while the control group received complex physical therapy only. Limb volume was measured using water displacement and limb circumference. Skin and subcutaneous thickness were measured using Doppler ultrasound. All measurements were carried out at baseline (0wk) and after 12 weeks (12wk) of intervention. Results: The clinical and demographic characteristics of both groups were comparable at baseline. The reduction of limb volume tended to decline in both groups. The trend was more significantly pronounced in ozone group than control at 12 wk (P < 0.05). There was significant reduction in skin and subcutis thickness in both groups. The rate of thickness reduction was more observable in the ozone group than the control group. Conclusion: Ozone therapy was found to be an effective adjunctive modality for reducing limb volume and thickness in the women with BCRL.

Abstract

Advanced head and neck (H&N) tumors have a poor prognosis, and this is worsened by the occurrence of hypoxia and ischemia in the tumors. Ozonetherapy has proved useful in the treatment of ischemic syndromes, and several studies have described a potential increase of oxygenation in tissues and tumors. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the clinical effect of ozonetherapy in patients with advanced H&N cancer in the course of their scheduled radiotherapy. Over a period of 3 years, 19 patients with advanced H&N tumors who were undergoing treatment in our department with non-standard fractionated radiotherapy plus oral tegafur. A group of 12 patients was additionally treated with intravenous chemotherapy before and/or during radiotherapy. In the other group of seven patients, systemic ozonetherapy was administered twice weekly during radiotherapy. The ozonetherapy group was older (64 versus 54 years old, P = 0.006), with a higher percentage of lymph node involvement (71% versus 8%, P = 0.019) and with a trend to more unfavorable tumor stage (57% versus 8% IVb + IVc stages, P = 0.073). However, there was no significant difference in overall survival between the chemotherapy (median 6 months) and ozonetherapy (8 months) groups. Although these results have to be viewed with caution because of the limited number of patients, they suggest that ozonetherapy could have had some positive effect during the treatment of our patients with advanced H&N tumors. The adjuvant administration of ozonetherapy during the chemo-radiotherapy for these tumors merits further research.
