A study with 80 patients suffering from A, B, C hepatitis, since
August 1996, in “Octavio de la Concepción y de la Pedraja
Hospital, Camagüey (Cuba) was performed. Patients, between 17 and
45 years old, were checked before in our laboratory, in order to
verify the diagnoses of hepatitis. Conventional treatment (repose
and diet prescripted) plus ozone therapy was applied to 40
patients, the other 40 patients only received conventional
treatment. Ozone was administered, daily, by rectal way (dose =
10mg), for a total of 15 sessions. During the first week of
treatment, remission of all the symptoms took place as well as the
enlargement of the liver, improving their conditions and their
appetite. All patients were totally cured at the end of the
treatment. Under the conventional treatment these symptoms remain
for more than 10 days and the totally cure was achieved
approximately 6 moths later. Comparing these results we can say
that ozone therapy is a suitable treatment against hepatitis,
improving the patients health and the healing time of the disease.
