Abstract

Multi-resistant drug bacteria are an emerging health care concern around the world. A decreased resistance to infection as seen in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and kidney transplanted patients as well as some metabolic abnormalities such as hyperglycemia and glycosuria or clinical conditions such as the neurogenic bladder may indeed portend a great risk of recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI). The common and indiscriminate use of antibiotics often provides the patients with only a transient or partial amelioration of the urinary tract discomforts and increases the risk of multi-resistant drug bacteria selection. Thus a great effort is made in order to develop new antibacterial approaches especially in the setting of multi- antibiotic resistant pathogens. We herein report on some promising yet preliminary results of the use of ozone therapy in UTI.

Abstract

The effect of ozone by rectal route at different doses on variables of renal function and systolic arterial pressure was studied in a model of experimental toxic glomerulonephritis due to adriamicine. Experimental glomerulonephritis causes renal failure and it is characterized by a progressive renal damage. There are different treatment schemes that are very expensive and produce immunosupression, affecting the patient’s quality of life. To develop this work, 40 Wistar rats of 200 g of weight were used. They were dividided into 4 groups: a control group and a positive control group that were administered adriamicine during 10 weeks, and other 2 that received ozone therapy. Proteinuria, systolic arterial pressure and 24-hour diuresis were determined in all of them. The results showed that ozone therapy at a dosis of 0.3 mg/kg had a renal protective effect

Title

[Ozone therapy and tamsulosin in the treatment of cystitis]

Abstract

Treatment of cystitis remains an urgent problem in urology due to its prevalence, physical and social disadaptation of patients, and not always satisfactory treatment results. The article presents the results of treatment of 40 women aged 41.5 +/- 12.4 years with chronic cystitis. 20 patients received ozone therapy, 20 patients--ozone therapy in combination with alpha-adrenoblocker tamsulosin. Effectiveness of the treatment was evaluated using clinical data, data of bladder diaries, IPSS score, and uroflowmetry data. Dynamics of all the parameters in patients treated with ozone therapy in combination with tamsulosin was significantly higher in comparison with that in patients treated with ozone therapy only. As a result of the treatment, increased urine flow rate was accompanied by an increase in urination. Combination therapy with the use of ozone therapy and tamsulosin can be successfully and safely used in the treatment of patients with cystitis.
