Central Havana Pediatric Hospital, Cuba.
Therapeutic effects of ozone therapy in 22 pediatric patients,
with diagnosis of secondary immunodeficiencies (humoral and
cellular), caused by recurrent episodes of acute respiratory
infections from the upper and lower respiratory tract , were
evaluated clinically and immunologically. Rectal ozone
applications, with doses according to ages, was used in all
patients. After treatment, clinical improvements, decrease in the
frequency of episodes and also immunological improvements in the
parameters studied were achieved. We did not reported side-
effects with the use of ozone therapy. New therapeutic
possibilities are open for secondary immunodeficiencies treatment.
