Ozone Research Links
One of the most significant publish studies was in 2008 by Dr. Muto in Italy who reported the treatment of 2,900 patients with oxygen-ozone injection procedures for painful disc conditions. It was noted that 75 to 80 percent of patients with a single disc herniation, and 70 percent of patients with multiple disc herniations, had significant improvement in their symptoms after the procedure. None of the patients developed neurologic or infectious complications.
In 2009, Dr. Kieran Murphy, who is an interventional radiologist at University of Toronto, addressed the Society of Interventional Radiology in San Diego. Dr. Murphy reported data from 12 studies encompassing more than 8,000 patients with painful disc conditions. 79.7 percent of ozone injected patients improved in at least 1 category of a modified pain and functional scale. The recovery time was significantly shorter than surgical discectomy. The complication rate was extremity low. The complication risk was calculated as 0.003 percent. There were no serious complications reported. The patient ages ranged from 13 to 94 years of age. In recent years, studied were published to further the ground breaking work of Dr. Muto and Dr. Murphy.
