Cancer Society's Ozone Therapy Article
Hey James-

If you ever get any free time, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the American Cancer Society's article regarding oxygen therapies.

The link is here:

Thanks, much peace.

The article is misleading and full of mistakes.

For example they claim the oxygen therapies are supposed to work by simply increasing oxygen levels to the body. That may be true for hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which is widely used in allopathic medicine for a variety of health issues, but this is not true for hydrogen peroxide or ozone therapy.

In addition, they imply that the 35% peroxide is used full strength at 35%. This is rarely the case. Peroxide therapy is primarily done with highly dilute peroxide. The peroxide is first diluted from 35% first, then one drop added to a glass of water to drink on an empty stomach. Then the person works up to two drops, then three drops, etc. But the concentration of peroxide when ingested is always highly diluted from the 3% solution. When doing intravenous or intraarterial injections the dilution is even higher.

Whoever write this article did not do any real research. Looks like they simply took the word of people like Stephen Barrett from Quackwatch, who has been discredited so many times I cannot believe he is willing to show his face anymore. But Barrett does make a living trying to constantly discredit holistic medicine. So I have noticed that he will look for the most obscure, fraudulently conducted research that he can present as evidence while ignoring any and all properly conducted and interpreted studies that prove the efficacy of holistic therapies.

All this just goes to further prove that the American Cancer Society (ACS) is not interested in a cancer cure. If an effective cure were ever allowed on the market they would cease to exist and the over $4 billion they collect every year in donations that goes almost exclusively to executive salaries, travel, parties, etc. would also cease to exist. I wonder how many people realize that only about 5% of the money they collect goes to patient support? And that despite their long existence the ACS has NEVER come up with any real advancement in cancer research?

In fact, back the 1950s there were articles in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) and the Journal of the ACS (JACS) that discussed the significant effectiveness of a compound called podophyllumtoxin against 6 forms of cancer including breast cancer. Problem was that it was a naturally occurring compound from mandrake and Savin junipers. Therefore, it was not something that could be controlled by the drug companies and again effective cancer cures are frowned upon by groups like the ACS. So the drug was shelved for over 50 years. Then the drug was finally synthesized by the University of North Carolina and sold to a California drug company, which is the last I ever heard of it.

If the ACS was really looking for a cure why didn't they follow up and push for the development and use of podophyllumtoxin that they even reported in their own journal as being highly effective for 6 forms of cancer?

If you do some deep research in to the ACS you will find that not only has the ACS never made any real advancements in cancer research, but it has also been reported that they have targeted researchers coming up with promising cancer treatments getting their research funds taken away and blackballing the researchers from being able to do further cancer research.

In fact, how many times have we seen the reports of new cancer therapies that showed great success in the research such as HCG vaccines, hyperthermia, interleukin II, etc only to never really hear about them again? Cancer is a multi-trillion dollar business and the ACS is just one of the groups working hard to make sure it stays that way.

Getting back to oxygen therapies as I pointed out most oxygen therapies DO NOT work by increasing oxygen. Ozone and peroxide readily and selectively kill cancer cells, but HBOT, which increases oxygen levels does not kill cancer cells. In fact, HBOT can promote cancer by stimulating angiogenesis without destroying the cancer cells. So there is obviously differences that don't involve oxygenation as the ACS falsely implies in their article.

Here is an article I wrote on ozone therapy that explains how ozone selectively and effectively kills cancer cells. Peroxide therapy works in part on the same principle although ozone offers benefits not provided by ozone:

And since the ACS and Stephen Barrett don't know how to perform proper research I will help them out:

Abstract
Ozone (O(3)) gas discovered in the mid-nineteenth century is a molecule consisting of three atoms of oxygen in a dynamically unstable structure due to the presence of mesomeric states. Although O(3) has dangerous effects, yet researchers believe it has many therapeutic effects. Ozone therapy has been utilized and heavily studied for more than a century. Its effects are proven, consistent, safe and with minimal and preventable side effects. Medical O(3) is used to disinfect and treat disease. Mechanism of actions is by inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa, stimulation of oxygen metabolism, activation of the immune system. Medication forms in a gaseous state are somewhat unusual, and it is for this reason that special application techniques have had to be developed for the safe use of O(3). In local applications as in the treatment of external wounds, its application in the form of a transcutaneous O(3) gas bath has established itself as being the most practical and useful method, for example at low (sub-atmospheric) pressure in a closed system guaranteeing no escape of O(3) into the surrounding air. Ozonized water, whose use is particularly known in dental medicine, is optimally applied as a spray or compress. Diseases treated are infected wounds, circulatory disorders, geriatric conditions, macular degeneration, viral diseases, rheumatism/arthritis, cancer, SARS and AIDS.

Treatment with ozone/oxygen-pneumoperitoneum results in complete remission of rabbit squamous cell carcinomas.

Author information
Abstract
Head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) represent a group of metastasizing tumors with a high mortality rate in man and animals. Since the biomolecule ozone was found to inhibit growth of various carcinoma cells in vitro we here applied the highly aggressive and lethal VX2 carcinoma HNSCC tumor model of the New Zealand White rabbit to test whether ozone exerts antitumorous effects in vivo. Therapeutic insufflation of medical ozone/oxygen (O(3)/O(2)) gas mixture into the peritoneum (O(3)/O(2)-pneumoperitoneum) at an advanced stage of tumor disease led to a survival rate of 7/14 rabbits. Six of the seven surviving rabbits presented full tumor regression and the absence of local or distant lung metastases. Insufflation of pure oxygen (O(2)) resulted in a survival rate of 3/13 animals accompanied by full tumor remission in 2 of the 3 surviving animals. Of the 14 sham-treated animals only 1 had spontaneous tumor remission and survived. No adverse effects or changes in standard blood parameters were observed after repeated intraperitoneal insufflations of the O(3)/O(2) or O(2) gas. Animals with O(3)/O(2)-induced tumor eradication developed tolerance against reimplantation of the VX2 tumor. This could be reversed by immune suppression with a combination of dexamethasone and cyclosporin A suggesting an antitumorous effect of O(3)/O(2)-mediated activation of the body's own immunosurveillance. Although the exact mechanisms of action are still unclear the present data point to O(3)/O(2)-pneumoperitoneum as a promising new strategy in anticancer therapy.

Abstract

Advanced head and neck (H&N) tumors have a poor prognosis, and this is worsened by the occurrence of hypoxia and ischemia in the tumors. Ozonetherapy has proved useful in the treatment of ischemic syndromes, and several studies have described a potential increase of oxygenation in tissues and tumors. The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the clinical effect of ozonetherapy in patients with advanced H&N cancer in the course of their scheduled radiotherapy. Over a period of 3 years, 19 patients with advanced H&N tumors who were undergoing treatment in our department with non-standard fractionated radiotherapy plus oral tegafur. A group of 12 patients was additionally treated with intravenous chemotherapy before and/or during radiotherapy. In the other group of seven patients, systemic ozonetherapy was administered twice weekly during radiotherapy. The ozonetherapy group was older (64 versus 54 years old, P = 0.006), with a higher percentage of lymph node involvement (71% versus 8%, P = 0.019) and with a trend to more unfavorable tumor stage (57% versus 8% IVb + IVc stages, P = 0.073). However, there was no significant difference in overall survival between the chemotherapy (median 6 months) and ozonetherapy (8 months) groups. Although these results have to be viewed with caution because of the limited number of patients, they suggest that ozonetherapy could have had some positive effect during the treatment of our patients with advanced H&N tumors. The adjuvant administration of ozonetherapy during the chemo–radiotherapy for these tumors merits further research.

Abstract

Tumor hypoxia is an adverse factor for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Ozone therapy is a non-conventional form of medicine that has been used successfully in the treatment of ischemic disorders. This prospective study was designed to assess the effect of ozone therapy on tumor oxygenation. Eighteen subjects were recruited for the study. Systemic ozone therapy was administered by autohemotransfusion on three alternate days over one week. Tumor oxygenation levels were measured using polarographic needle probes before and after the first and the third ozone therapy session. Overall, no statistically significant change was observed in the tumor oxygenation in the 18 patients. However, a significant decrease was observed in hypoxic values ≤10 and ≤5 mmHg of pO2. When individually assessed, a significant and inverse non-linear correlation was observed between increase in oxygenation and the initial tumor pO2 values at each measuring time-point, thus indicating that the more poorly-oxygenated tumors benefited most (rho = −0.725; P = 0.001). Additionally, the effect of ozone therapy was found to be lower in patients with higher hemoglobin concentrations (rho = −0.531; P < 0.034). Despite being administered over a very short period, ozone therapy improved oxygenation in the most hypoxic tumors. Ozone therapy as adjuvant in chemo-radiotherapy warrants further research.

Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 8. Effects on the total antioxidant status and on interleukin-8 production.
Bocci V1, Valacchi G, Corradeschi F, Fanetti G.
Author information
Abstract
Ozone (O3) is a controversial gas because, owing to its potent oxidant properties, it exerts damaging effects on the respiratory tract and yet it has been used for four decades as a therapy. While the disinfectant activity of O3 is understandable, it is less clear how other biological effects can be elicited in human blood with practically no toxicity. On the other hand plasma and cells are endowed with a powerful antioxidant system so that a fairly wide range of O3 concentrations between 40 and 80 microg/ml per gram of blood (approximately 0.83-1.66 mM) are effective but not deleterious. After blood ozonation total antioxidant status (TAS) and plasma protein thiol groups (PTG) decrease by 20% and 25%, respectively, while thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) increases up to five-fold. The increase of haemolysis is negligible suggesting that the erythrocyte membrane is spared at the expense of other sacrificial substrates. While there is a clear relationship between the ozone dose and IL-8 levels, we have noticed that high TAS and PTG values inhibit the cytokine production. This is in line with the current idea that hydrogen peroxide, as a byproduct of O3 decomposition, acts as a messenger for the cytokine induction.

Studies on the biological effects of ozone: 7. Generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) after exposure of human blood to ozone.

Author information

Abstract

The acceptance of any complementary medical approach is conditioned by the results obtained after the same scientific scrutiny applied in orthodox medicine. Otherwise any claim of efficacy remains in the realm of fiction. In the case of ozone therapy, the mechanisms of action have remained nebulous and in a series of publications we are trying to present the biochemical, immunological and morphological evidence in favour or against ozone therapy. We have now shown that ozone (O3) dissolved in the water of either plasma or serum or physiological saline generates reactive oxygen species (ROS), of which hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) can be unequivocally demonstrated by using specific methods for its detection. Lipids present in plasma preferentially those present in lipoproteins, undergo peroxidation that is somewhat O3-dose dependent and can be observed by the measurement of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS). While the generation of H2O2 is crucial in activating both biochemical (hexose monophosphate shunt) and immunological (via the transcription factor NF-kB) mechanisms, the role of lipid oxidation products (LOP) remains to be investigated. We have shown here that there is a small but consistent induction of some cytokines (TNF-alpha, IFN-gamma and IL-2) when human blood is directly exposed to O3 concentrations up to 100 micrograms/ml per g of blood. On the other hand, isolated blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) in tissue culture medium are far more sensitive to the oxidant action of O3 as shown by a progressive reduction of the proliferation index with comparatively far lower O3, concentrations. On the whole, these results support the concept that much of the O3 toxicity is neutralized by the powerful antioxidant system of blood. The minimal hemolysis supports this idea but as far as platelets are concerned, we must mention that they tend to aggregate in heparinized blood, even when it is exposed to an O3 concentration of 40 micrograms/ml. In spite of the lack of side-effects after autohemotherapy, this drawback must be kept in mind and avoided in clinical practice.

Reversion by ozone treatment of acute nephrotoxicity induced by cisplatin in rats.

González R1, Borrego A, Zamora Z, Romay C, Hernández F, Menéndez S, Montero T, Rojas E.

Author information

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Ozone therapy has become a useful treatment for pathological processes, in which the damage mediated by reactive oxygen species is involved. Several lines of evidence suggest that cisplatin-induced acute nephrotoxicity is partially mediated by reactive oxygen species

AIMS:

To analyze the effect of ozone administration after cisplatin-induced acute nephrotoxicity.

METHODS:

Male Sprague-Dawley rats were treated with five intra-rectal applications of ozone/oxygen mixture at 0.36, 1.1 and 1.8 mg/kg after cisplatin intraperitoneal injection (6 mg/kg). Serum and kidneys were taken off 5 days after cisplatin treatment. Creatinine was measured in the serum and the activities of antioxidant enzymes and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and glutathione content were analyzed in renal homogenate.

RESULTS:

Ozone treatment diminished the increase in serum creatinine levels, the glutathione depletion and also reversed the inhibition of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities induced by cisplatin in the rat kidney. Also, the renal content of thiobarbituric reactive substances was decreased by ozone/oxygen mixture applied after cisplatin.

CONCLUSION:

Intrarectal applications of ozone reversed the renal pro-oxidant unbalance induced by cisplatin treatment by the way of stimulation to some constituents of antioxidant system in the kidney, and thereby it decreased the renal damage.

Protection by ozone preconditioning is mediated by the antioxidant system in cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats.

Borrego A1, Zamora ZB, González R, Romay C, Menéndez S, Hernández F, Montero T, Rojas E.

Author information

Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Acute renal failure is a dose-limiting factor of cisplatin chemotherapy. Here, we show the protective effect of ozone oxidative preconditioning against cisplatin-induced renal dysfunction in rats. Ozone oxidative preconditioning is a prophylactic approach, which favors the antioxidant-pro-oxidant balance for preservation of the cell redox state by increasing antioxidant endogenous systems in various in vivo and in vitro experimental models.

AIMS:

To analyze the protective role of ozone oxidative preconditioning against cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity.

METHODS:

Male Sprague-Dawley rats were pretreated with 15 intrarectal applications of ozone/oxygen mixture at 0.36, 0.72, 1.1, 1.8 and 2.5 mg/kg before cisplatin intraperitoneal injection (6 mg/kg). Serum and kidneys were extracted and analyzed 5 days after cisplatin treatment for determinations of the renal content of glutathione, thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances, renal concentration and enzymatic activities of catalase, superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase.

RESULTS:

Ozone pretreatment prevented the increase in serum creatinine levels, the glutathione depletion and the inhibition of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase activities induced by cisplatin in the rat kidney. Also, the renal content of thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances was decreased by ozone therapy. These protective effects of ozone were dose dependent.

CONCLUSIONS:

Intrarectal ozone therapy prevented effectively the renal antioxidant unbalance induced by cisplatin treatment.

Ozone-Oxidative Preconditioning Prevents Doxorubicin-induced Cardiotoxicity in Sprague-Dawley Rats.

Delgado-Roche L1, Hernández-Matos Y1, Medina EA1, Morejón DÁ1, González MR2, Martínez-Sánchez G3.

Author information

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Induced dilated cardiomyopathy is the main limitation of the anti-cancer drug doxorubicin, which causes oxidative stress and cardiomyocyte death. As ozone therapy can activate the antioxidant systems, this study aimed to investigate the therapeutic efficacy of ozone-oxidative preconditioning against doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity.

METHODS:

The study was carried out from September 2013 to January 2014. Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly distributed in the following treatment groups: Group 1 were treated with 2 mg/kg intraperitoneal (i.p.) of doxorubicin twice a week for 50 days; Group 2 were treated with 0.3 mg of ozone/oxygen mixture at 50 μg/mL of ozone per 6 mL of oxygen by rectal insufflation and then treated with doxorubicin; Group 3 were treated as Group 2 but only with the oxygen, and Group 4 were treated with oxygen first, and then with sodium chloride i.p. as the control group.

RESULTS:

The results showed that ozone therapy preserved left ventricle morphology which was accompanied by a reduction of serum pro-brain natriuretic peptide levels. The cardioprotective effects of ozone-oxidative preconditioning were associated with a significant increase (P <0.05) of antioxidant enzymes activities and a reduction of lipid and protein oxidation (P <0.05).

CONCLUSION:

Ozone-oxidative preconditioning prevents doxorubicin-induced dilated cardiomyopathy through an increase of antioxidant enzymes and a reduction of oxidised macromolecules. This establishes the background for future studies to determine if ozone therapy can be used as a complementary treatment for attenuating doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity in cancer patients.

I have additional information on ozone here and in other sections of MedCapsules that can be found by searching "ozone":

http://medcapsules.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=354


Ironically the ACS makes no mention that chemotherapy and radiation therapy are well known for failing the majority of the time due to the same reason they falsely claim that oxygen therapies cannot work. If they read the numerous studies on this topic in the medical journals they will find that it is the same poor vascularization of the tumor that leads to the high failure rate of radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Both of these therapies are dependent on the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) to kill the cancer cells. The problem is that in order to form ROS there must first be sufficient oxygen present. Due to the poor and erratic vasculature in tumors there are areas within the tumor that are highly oxygenated and areas that are hypoxic (oxygen deficient). Therefore, what happens is that the highly oxygenated areas do get destroyed by ROS due to the sufficient oxygen levels. This can reduce the tumor below detectable levels making it appear the treatment was successful when in fact the body still has live and growing cancer cells. The remaining cancer cells are the ones in the hypoxic regions where radiation and chemo therapies cannot generate ROS and thus cannot kill these cancer cells. Therefore, these cancer cells eventually grow back to detectable size and generally as radiation and chemotherapy resistant tumors.

Ozone therapy does not have this limitation and can readily destroy cancer cells even in the hypoxic regions.

To show how biased the ACS really is and how desperate the ACS to discredit oxygen therapies let's look at some of their references:

Cerebral infarction immediately after ingestion of hydrogen peroxide solution. Stroke. 1994;25:1065-1067.

If people read this study it clearly states that the man in this isolated case drank "30 mL of 35% hydrogen peroxide solution". Being this is hundreds of times stronger than is recommended for ingestion for hydrogen peroxide therapy should they really blame the therapy? That is as stupid as saying if a person drinks 10 times the amount of water in a day that the recommended daily allowance and they die from water intoxication that water is deadly and should be avoided at all cost.

In this reference they use the person ingested a concentrate 33% peroxide:

Cerebral air gas embolism from concentrated hydrogen peroxide ingestion. Clin Toxicol (Phila). 2008 Nov;46(9):815-818.

Ironically, this same study clearly states: "Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be of benefit in reversing the symptoms and preventing permanent neurological impairment."

So once again because someone did a therapy improperly this does not make the therapy bad. In fact, the ACS managed to find two isolated cases of improper use of hydrogen peroxide. Yet the proven low average effective chemo and radiation therapies have killed how many millions of people?!!! Why isn't the ACS warning people about these highly dangerous and generally ineffective therapies if they are so worried about human safety?

Another reference they give is Treatment with ozone/oxygen-pneumoperitoneum results in complete remission of rabbit squamous cell carcinomas. In the article they state that some of the tumors disappeared without any treatment. If you read this study though the "some" the author claims was a total of one!!!!

At least they point out that the highest tumor disappearance and survival rates were in the rabbits receiving ozone. Although the author also left out the part of the study where they mentioned the ozone also prevented metastases, which was not stated for oxygen treatment alone.

Another very important part of the study the author completely ignored was the fact that the ozone also prevented recurrence of the cancer "suggesting an antitumorous effect of O(3)/O(2)-mediated activation of the body's own immunosurveillance".

I also find it interesting that the author is trying so hard to bash ozone therapy while referencing this study, which CLEARLY states: "the present data point to O(3)/O(2)-pneumoperitoneum as a promising new strategy in anticancer therapy"

In short, the article is a highly biased, poorly written hatchet job on oxygen therapies full of misinformation and misleading statements.

If you ever get any free time, I was wondering if you had any thoughts on the American Cancer Society's article regarding oxygen therapies.

The link is here:
http://www.cancer.org/treatment/treatmen...en-therapy

Thanks, much peace.

There is actually quite a bit of evidence of the effectiveness of ozone for cancer reported in the medical journals.

The fact that the American Cancer Society article is referring to this therapy increasing oxygen levels in the body just proves to me that they did not really research the topic properly. This is because ozone therapy DOES NOT work by increasing oxygen levels. Increasing oxygen levels would only increase the growth rate of the cancer.

I have information on ozone for cancer here:

http://medcapsules.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=89

I will be adding references from the medical journals as I get time. These will also include studies showing that the addition of ozone therapy to many chemotherapy regimes will increase the effectiveness of these chemo drugs, which generally have very low success rates. The reason is that these drugs rely on the formation of oxygen radicals to kill the cancer cells. This means these chemo drugs will work in the well oxgenated areas of the tumor. But due to the poor and erratic vascularization of malignant tumors there are various hypoxic regions within the tumor. These chemo drugs nor radiation therapy work effectively in these areas due to the lack of oxygen and thus the inability to form sufficient oxygen radicals to create the oxygen radicals needed to destroy the cancer cells. Ozone not only kills cancer cells by itself, but it also increases oxygenation of the hypoxic regions of the tumor allowing the chemotherapy drugs or radiation therapy to generate oxygen radicals in the formerly hypoxic regions that otherwise would not be affected by these therapies.

I do not consider the American Cancer Society to be a credible source of cancer treatment information. It has been shown that out of the over $4 billion the ACS gets in donations every year less than 5% goes to help patients. Most of the money collected goes to pay executive salaries, to pay for trips, parties, advertising to get more money to blow, etc. If an effective cancer therapy were ever allowed to be used openly on the market the ACS would cease to exist along with many other cancer societies. They are not going to bite the hand that feeds them.
