The aim of this work was to study the effect of ozone therapy on blood lymphocyte subpopulations (CD3, CD4+, CD8+), leukocyte function (CD45), HLA-DR molecule expression and the serum levels of IgE in patients with inflammatory diseases. Initial pathologic values in the expression of CD45 and HLA-DR and IgE concentrations were significant normalized after 15 endovenous ozone therapy sessions. A tendency to achieve normal values was observed in CD3, CD4+, CD8+ parameters. These results suggest that ozone treatment can be a beneficial alternative therapy in inflammatory process.
