Abstract

The treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis is a challenge for rheumatologists.

Several clinical studies have shown that anti-malarial agents, gold salts, Methotrexat, and  some  cytotoxicagents  have disease-modifying properties, but response to  treatment  with these drugs  is variable and acertain proportion of the RA patients do not benefit.

O3 / O2 has  a  potent  immunomodulator  capable  of  selective  modulation  of  
subpopulations  of  immunocompetent cells. This properties suggested that ozone useful of treatment of RA.

Clinical efficacy was observed one month after the beginning of treatment, was well established  after many months of therapy, and remained stable for the remainder of the one-year treatment period.

It is known that ozone  administration in  different  applications forms for the time
between 6 to 8 weeks cause improvement of the general condition of the patients
 (clinically and biochemically).

Concluded that ozone is clinically effective for the treatment of patients with refractory  RA, but its value for intervention therapy is limited.
