Abstract
The technique of autohemotherapy with ozonated blood has been claimed to have a wide variety of medical benefits including immune stimulation. The technique involves collection of a small amount of blood (5-10 mL), treating it with ozone using a medical device designed to ozonate blood, then reinjecting blood back into the donor. This technique was used using a porcine model system and a chemiluminescent assay to determine if non-specific immunity was enhanced. Our results showed no significant enhancement of non-specific immunity using this technique.
