The aim of this study was to asses the effect of ozone therapy on lymphocyte subpopulations CD3, CD4+, CD8+, leukocyte function CD45, HLA-DR molecule expression in the peripheral blood and the serum levels of IgE in patients with inflammatory diseases. Initial high values in the expression of HLA-DR molecule were significant decreased after endovenous ozone therapy sessions. A tendency to achieve normal values was observed in CD3, CD4+, CD8+ and CD45 parameters. These results suggest that ozone treatment can be a beneficial alternative therapy in inflammatory process.
