Tara F, Zand-Kargar Z, Rajabi O, Berenji F, Akhlaghi F, Shakeri MT, Azizi H. Abstract Context • Vulvovaginal candidiasis is the most common infection of the vulvovagina, which manifests with itching, a burning sensation, and leucorrhea. Some infections have been reported to be tolerant to conventional treatments, especially in immunosuppressed patients. New studies have suggested that ozone, which is the allotropic form of oxygen, may have antifungal effects. Objective • The study intended to compare the effects of ozononated olive oil and clotrimazole in the treatment of vulvovaginal candidiasis. Design • Patients were randomly assigned either to an ozone group or to a clotrimazole group in a randomized, controlled trial. Setting • The study took place in the Department of Gynecology of the School of Medicine at Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in Mashhad, Iran. Participants • Participants were 100 female patients who had been referred to the women's gynecology clinic at the Omolbanin and Ghaem Hospitals and who had confirmed vulvovaginal candidiasis. Intervention • Patients in the ozone group were treated with ozonated olive oil or those in the clotrimazole group were treated with clotrimazole for 7 d. Outcome Measures • Patients were evaluated through an interview and a paraclinical examination at baseline and postintervention. The study measured changes in itching, burning, and leucorrhea using a questionnaire that patients completed at the end of the study and determined the presence of an infection with vaginal candidiasis through a culture both before acceptance into the study and after the treatments, if accepted. Results • Ozone and clotrimazole both reduced symptoms significantly and led to a negative culture for vaginal candidiasis (P < .05). No significant differences existed between the 2 groups in their effects on the symptom of itching and leucorrhea and on the results of the culture (P > .05). However, clotrimazole decreased the burning sensation significantly more than did ozone (P < .05). Conclusions • Considering the potential efficacy of ozonated olive oil in the improvement of the clinical and paraclinical aspects of treatment of patients with vulvovaginal candidiasis, the research team suggests that the treatment can be an effective topical treatment for those patients.

Author information Abstract Dermatophytes are classified in three genera, Epidermophyton, Microsporum and Trichophyton. They have the capacity to invade keratinized tissue to produce a cutaneous infection known as dermatophytoses. This investigation was performed to study the effect of gaseous ozone and ozonized oil on three specific properties of six different dermatophytes. These properties included sporulation, mycelia leakage of sugar and nutrients and the activity of their hydrolytic enzymes. Generally, ozonized oil was found to be more efficacious than gaseous ozone. Microsporum gypseum and Microsporum canis were the most susceptible, while Trichophyton interdigitale and T. mentagrophytes were relatively resistant. The study revealed a steady decline in spore production of M. gypseum and M. canis on application of ozonated oil. An increase in leakage of electrolytes and sugar was noticed after treatment with ozonized oil in the case of M. gypseum, M. canis, T. interdigitale, T. mentagrophytes and T. rubrum. The results also revealed loss in urease, amylase, alkaline phosphatase, lipase and keratinase enzyme producing capacity of the investigated fungi.

[Treatment of interdigital foot Erythrasma with ozonated olive oil]. [Article in Spanish] Ramírez-Hobak L1, Moreno-Coutiño G, Arenas-Guzmán R, Gorzelewski A, Fernández-Martínez R. Author information Abstract in English, Spanish BACKGROUND: Erythrasma is caused by Corinebacterium minutissimum producing a porphyrin that with Wood's light emits a coral-red fluorescence. It is the most common bacterial infection of the feet. Ozonated olive oil decreases the cytoplasm and damages bacterial proteins and lipids. Treatment is with oral erythromycin and there is no consensus regarding the topical therapy of choice. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of ozonated olive oil in a pilot trial for Erythrasma. METHODS: Experimental, open, observational, descriptive, longitudinal clinical trial at the section of Mycology, of the General Hospital "Dr. Manuel Gea González". PATIENTS: 10 individuals with interdigital feet Erythrasma. INTERVENTION: ozonated olive oil every 12 hours for 10 days was given. RESULTS: All patients had disappearance of coral-red fluorescence, erythema, fissures, pruritus, and maceration; two patients persisted with scaling. A cure was obtained in 100 % of patients, similar to oral erythromycin response. CONCLUSIONS: Ozonated olive oil is a good topical treatment option for interdigital Erythrasma avoiding oral medications. Larger studies are required.

The activity of ozonated olive oil against Leishmania major promastigotes. Rajabi O1, Sazgarnia A2, Abbasi F3, Layegh P4. Author information Abstract OBJECTIVES: Cutaneous Leishmaniasis is a common and endemic disease in Khorasan province in North-East of Iran. The pentavalant antimony (Sb V) is the mainstay of treatment that has many side effects and resistance to the drug has been reported. The microbicidal effect of ozone was proven in different microorganisms. Since there is no study in this respect and to achieve a low cost and effective treatment, we decided to evaluate the efficacy of ozone against promastigotes of Leishmania major, in vitro. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ozonated olive oil was prepared after production of ozone by bubbling ozone-oxygen gas produced by ozone generator through olive oil until it solidified. Promastigotes of L. major were cultivated in two phasic media. After calculation of the number of promastigotes, they were incubated with ozonated olive oil (0, 0.626, 0.938, 1.25, 2.5, 5, 10 mcg/ml) at 28 °c for 24 hr. Parasites survival percentage was evaluated using MTS and microscopic assay, and then compared with Glucantime and non-ozonated olive oil. RESULTS: According to the results, there were significant differences in parasites survival percentage between ozonated olive oil and non-ozonated olive oil, at similar concentrations (P<0.001). Ozonated olive oil was more effective than Glucantime. According to MTS results, Glucantime and ozonated olive oil gel concentrations that are required to inhibit the growth of L. major promastigotes by 50% (IC50), were 165 and 0.002 mg/ml, respectively. CONCLUSION: Ozonated olive oil has in vitro activity against the promastigotes of L. major and this effect is dose dependent.

Randomized, controlled study of innovative spray formulation containing ozonated oil and α-bisabolol in the topical treatment of chronic venous leg ulcers. Solovăstru LG1, Stîncanu A, De Ascentii A, Capparé G, Mattana P, Vâţă D. Author information Abstract OBJECTIVE: Ozone therapy has a large clinical application in many therapeutic areas because of its well-known antimicrobial, immunological, and oxygenating properties. Recently, interest has grown regarding the application of ozonated oil for vascular leg ulcer treatment. The efficacy of an innovative spray formulation of ozonated oil and α-bisabolol combination in the topical treatment of chronic venous leg ulcers was evaluated compared with standard epithelialization cream. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial was conducted. SETTING: A total of 29 patients older than 18 years with chronic venous leg ulcers for less than 2 years' duration were assessed. PATIENTS: Patients were randomized to receive daily application of both ozonated oil and α-bisabolol or the control cream (vitamin A, vitamin E, talc, and zinc oxide) for 30 days. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Patients were evaluated on 4 different visits: at days 0, 7, 14, and 30. At each visit, the wound surfaces were measured. Wound area ratio and the speed of ulcer healing were calculated. MAIN RESULTS: At the end of treatment, the proportion of patients with complete ulcer healing was higher with ozonated oil and α-bisabolol formulation (25% vs 0%). Furthermore, the changes in ulcer surface area were significant for ozonated oil and α-bisabolol formulation only (P < .05), in particular, observing a significant and progressive reduction of the wound surface by 34%, 59%, and 73%, after 7, 14, and 30 days of treatment, respectively. CONCLUSION: The innovative spray formulation of ozonated oil and α-bisabolol combination shows promise as an important new therapeutic option in the adjuvant treatment of venous ulcers. • Format: Abstract Send to Balkan Med J. 2013 Dec;30(4):369-74. doi: 10.5152/balkanmedj.2013.9158.

Author information Abstract BACKGROUND: Acute radiation proctitis is a common complication of pelvic radiation and management of acute radiation proctitis is under evaluation. The beneficial effects of ozonated olive oil (OzOO) have already been shown in the treatment of chronic wounds. Thus, this study was designed to evaluate the therapeutic effects of topical OzOO on acute radiation proctitis. AIMS: To evaluate the therapeutic effects of topical OzOO on acute radiation proctitis. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation. METHODS: RATS WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS: control; irradiation+saline (1 mL); and irradiation +OzOO (1 mL). A single fraction of 17.5 Gy was delivered to each rat. The OzOO was administered rectally each day after irradiation. Each rat was observed daily for signs of proctitis. Irradiated rats were euthanised on days 5 and 10. The mucosal changes were evaluated macroscopically and pathologically. RESULTS: According to the clinical findings, five rats in the irradiation+saline group showed Grade 4 symptoms on the 10(th) day. Macroscopic finding scores on the 10(th) day in the irradiation+saline and irradiation+OzOO groups were statistically significantly different. On pathological examination, radiation-induced mucosal damage was the most prominent 10 days after irradiation in saline-treated rats. On the 10(th) day, the irradiation+OzOO group showed mild inflammation and slight crypt change, which corresponded to Grade 1 pathological findings. CONCLUSION: OzOO attenuates macroscopic and pathological findings of acute radiation proctitis in rats.

Ozone and ozonated oils in skin diseases: a review. Travagli V1, Zanardi I, Valacchi G, Bocci V. Author information Abstract Although orthodox medicine has provided a variety of topical anti-infective agents, some of them have become scarcely effective owing to antibiotic- and chemotherapeutic-resistant pathogens. For more than a century, ozone has been known to be an excellent disinfectant that nevertheless had to be used with caution for its oxidizing properties. Only during the last decade it has been learned how to tame its great reactivity by precisely dosing its concentration and permanently incorporating the gas into triglycerides where gaseous ozone chemically reacts with unsaturated substrates leading to therapeutically active ozonated derivatives. Today the stability and efficacy of the ozonated oils have been already demonstrated, but owing to a plethora of commercial products, the present paper aims to analyze these derivatives suggesting the strategy to obtain products with the best characteristics.

Topical applications of ozone and ozonated oils as anti-infective agents: an insight into the patent claims. Travagli V1, Zanardi I, Bocci V. Author information Abstract Orthodox medicine has been very active in the field of topical anti-infective agents and current chemotherapy has procured valid antibiotics, antivirals, vaccines, antibodies, and antiparasitic drugs to be parenterally and/or topically used. However, these drugs may cause side effects and sometimes provide unsatisfactory results because pathogens become drug-resistant. Another drawback is represented by their cost, which compromise their use or their availability in poor Countries. Therefore, there is a critical need for new strategies to treat dermatological affections. The old intuition for using ozone in the treatment of necrotic wounds, especially if due to anaerobic bacteria, is now justified by the studies about reactive oxygen species generation by granulocytes and macrophages as the first line of defense during an infection. As a consequence, the disinfectant value of ozone has been increasingly appreciated during the last fifteen years. This review summarizes the patents filed and issued, with particular emphasis to the more recent patents, about the anti-infective topical use of ozone: i) in the gaseous form; ii) after gaseous ozone saturation of aqueous, not-oily pharmaceutical vehicles and solvents; iii) where gaseous ozone chemically reacts with unsaturated substrates leading to therapeutically active ozonated derivatives. We hope that recent advances and a better understanding of the ozone chemistry and biology will be able to create the mental attitude to prove the validity of large-scale therapeutic use of both ozone and ozone derivatives as topical anti-infective agents by performing multicenter, randomized clinical studies, as aptly requested by orthodox medicine. • ormat: Abstract Send to Biomed Res Int. 2013;2013:702949. doi: 10.1155/2013/702949.

Author information Abstract Owing to diabetes, atherosclerosis, and ageing, there are several million patients undergoing skin lesions degenerated into infected ulcers with very little tendency to heal and implying a huge socioeconomical cost. Previous medical experience has shown that the daily application of ozonated oil eliminates the infection and promotes a rapid healing. The purpose of the study is the optimization of the antimicrobial effect of ozonated oils by testing in vitro four bacterial species and one yeast without or in the presence of different amounts of human serum. The results obtained suggest that a gentle and continuous removal of debris and exudate is an essential condition for the potent bactericidal effect of ozonated oils. In fact, even small amounts of human serum inactivate ozone derivatives and protect bacteria. The application of ozonated oil preparations is very promising in a variety of skin and mucosal infections. Moreover, ozonated oils are far less expensive than antibiotic preparations.

Topical ozonated oil versus hyaluronic gel for the treatment of partial- to full-thickness second-degree burns: A prospective, comparative, single-blind, non-randomised, controlled clinical trial. Campanati A1, De Blasio S, Giuliano A, Ganzetti G, Giuliodori K, Pecora T, Consales V, Minnetti I, Offidani A. Author information Abstract INTRODUCTION AND AIM: Several studies have demonstrated that ozonated oil is effective on cutaneous wound healing. This in vivo study has been conducted to evaluate the clinical effect of the topical application of ozonated oil for 12 weeks on second-degree skin burns. METHOD: A total of 30 patients suffering from second-degree skin burns in the phase of re-epithelisation were included in this study. Every skin burn was subdivided in two symmetrical parts. One part was treated with occlusive application of ozonated oil; the contralateral part of the lesion was treated with topical application of hyaluronic acid gel, once a day for 12 weeks. A clinical evaluation and an intra-vital video-capillaroscopy were performed on every patient at baseline, 6 and 12 weeks after. RESULTS: All treated lesions improved regardless of the treatment used. Ozonated oil was as effective as hyaluronic acid in improving erythema, tension, itching and burning sensation reported by patients, and it does not exert a specific anti-angiogenic effect compared to hyaluronic acid. However it seems more effective than hyaluronic acid in reducing post-lesional hyperpigmentation. CONCLUSION: Ozonated oil, topically applied for 12 weeks, seems to be as effective as hyaluronic acid in reducing symptoms related to skin burns, but it could be more effective in preventing the post-lesional hyperpigmentation.

Therapeutic effects of topical application of ozone on acute cutaneous wound healing. Kim HS1, Noh SU, Han YW, Kim KM, Kang H, Kim HO, Park YM. Author information Abstract This study was undertaken to evaluate the therapeutic effects of topical ozonated olive oil on acute cutaneous wound healing in a guinea pig model and also to elucidate its therapeutic mechanism. After creating full-thickness skin wounds on the backs of guinea pigs by using a 6 mm punch biopsy, we examined the wound healing effect of topically applied ozonated olive oil (ozone group), as compared to the pure olive oil (oil group) and non-treatment (control group). The ozone group of guinea pig had a significantly smaller wound size and a residual wound area than the oil group, on days 5 (P<0.05) and 7 (P<0.01 and P<0.05) after wound surgery, respectively. Both hematoxylin-eosin staining and Masson-trichrome staining revealed an increased intensity of collagen fibers and a greater number of fibroblasts in the ozone group than that in the oil group on day 7. Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated upregulation of platelet derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expressions, but not fibroblast growth factor expression in the ozone group on day 7, as compared with the oil group. In conclusion, these results demonstrate that topical application of ozonated olive oil can accelerate acute cutaneous wound repair in a guinea pig in association with the increased expression of PDGF, TGF-beta, and VEGF.

Cytological assessment of healing palatal donor site wounds and grafted gingival wounds after application of ozonated oil: an eighteen-month randomized controlled clinical trial. Patel PV1, Kumar S, Vidya GD, Patel A, Holmes JC, Kumar V. Author information Abstract OBJECTIVE: The present study was undertaken to assess the therapeutic effects of topical ozonated oil on early healing of free gingival graft surgical sites. STUDY DESIGN: Twenty subjects were entered into this triple-blinded, randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trial, designed to evaluate the efficacy of ozonated oil on free gingival graft surgical wounds. Subjects were assigned to either the ozone group, in which ozonated oil was applied to the surgical wound, or the control group, in which non-ozonated oil was used as a control. Patients were postoperatively evaluated by cytological analysis. Cytological analysis consisted of the keratinisation and superficial cell indices measured at baseline, after 24 h, on the 3rd, 7th, 14th and 21st day and 2, 3, 8 and 18 months postoperatively. RESULTS: Cytological results showed that there was a significant (p < 0.001) improvement in epithelial healing by the 7th, 14th and 21st day and 2, 3 and 8 months postoperatively in the ozone group compared to the control group. CONCLUSION: The present study showed significant improvement in epithelial healing and gingival health after topical application of ozone-treated plant oil to gingival surgical sites.
