Abstract Retinitis pigmentosa is characterized by bad night vision, decrease of visual field and/or acuity. The aim of this article is to assess ozone therapy's efficacy in these patients, treated twice a year over 20 years. Forty patients received ozone via the rectal way, during 20 sessions as the only treatment, with repetition of this cycle every 6 months, and 16 received other medical treatments (control group). A significant decrease of the visual field in the control group in respect to the ozone group was observed after 20 years of treatment. In the ozone group, 50% of patients improved their visual field, accompanied with homeostasis in redox state. It is recommended to apply ozone therapy at 6-month intervals in order to maintain visual capabilities. The opinions and conclusions expressed in this article are those of the authors and contributors, and do not necessarily reflect those of the International Ozone Association, the editors, Editorial Board, or Taylor & Francis. Readers are to make their own decisions with regard to the work presented. These medical articles are enclosed, as in the past, as a service to the members of the IOA interested in medical applications.

Abstract The aim of this study is to determine the efficacy of ozone therapy in patients with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP). A controlled, randomized, double blind clinical trial involving 68 patients was performed. Patients were divided into 2 groups: ozone, patients treated with ozone by rectal administration (dose=10 mg), during 15 sessions; control, as ozone group, but using oxygen. The main outcome variable was the visual field area (VFA). Results demonstrated a significant improvement (SI) in 88.2% of patients treated with ozone in comparison with 23.5% achieved in the control group. In the ozone group, VFA tend to stabilize beyond a mean time of 6.83 months with a loose in SI afterward. A temporal positive effect of ozone therapy. Over the natural course of RP, was found.
