Rats were treated during twenty five days with hypercholesterolemic
diet. After this day, administration of ozone was performed. All
organs were processed for light microscopy. In all groups, animals
were observed without alteration of the structure, except in a
positive control group with hypercholesterolemic diet, where two
animals presented zones of myocardium necrosis. Animals treated with
ozone did not show alterations, so ozone may have a protective effect
on the myocardium when this administration way is used.
