Ozone Treated HIV+ Patient - Becomes PCR Negative

AB: Two male HIV positive asymptomatic patients treated
themselves with colonic insufflations of an Ozone/Oxygen
mixture intermittently for 180 weeks. Both patients
increased their CD4 cell count, and one patient, after the
160th week, became Polymerase chain reaction negative. Both
patients have remained in the best of health, with no
infections and no adverse symptoms or malaise.
Ozone was produced from a portable Medical Ozone Generator,
(Hansler, Iffezheim, Germany), and was insufflated through a
teflon catheter into the colon. This is a simple, safe,
inexpensive and well documented method for treatment with
Ozone. Dosage concentration 22-30 ug O3/ml O2, average
volume was 1100 ml for a total dose of 26.2-33 mgO3 per
treatment. Treatment was daily for 21 days, every 3 days
for 16 weeks, and once weekly for 15 weeks, for a total of
73 treatments containing 2065-2137 mg Ozone. Each year for
the next two years they treated themselves to a daily
booster dose identical to the first 21 day program.
In view of the fact that Ozone treatment is simple, safe,
effective, inexpensive and has been used for more than 50
years in man without reported adverse effects and appears to
be effective against HIV at non cytotoxic concentrations.
We believe further studies should be done to determine its
role in treatment of HIV, especially in the early stages of
the disease when the patient is asymptomatic and has a CD4
cell count in the normal range (lower limit 450). If this
is so it could have a major effect on this epidemic.
