Ameliorative effect of ozone on cytokine production in mice injected with human rheumatoid arthritis synovial fibroblast cells.
Rheumatol Int. 2004 Nov 27;
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by invasion of hyperplastic synovial cells and progressive joint destruction. Ozone therapy has been proposed as an immunomodulator and cellular metabolic activator which shows long-term anti-inflammatory effects and serves to reduce further the proinflammatory factors. We purified RA synovial fibroblast cells (RA-SFc) from patients and avoided contaminating macrophages by flow cytometry, then treated them with ozone. Following the observable decreased production of proinflammatory factors TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6 from RA-SFc, we infused the cultured RA-SFc into joints of severe combined immunodeficiency mice. The mRNA and protein levels of the RA-SFc exposed to 3% and 5% ozone were the same. As a result, 3% and 5% ozone applied externally ameliorated the inflammatory reaction of RA without toxicity or serious side effects. Therefore, ozone injected into the knees of RA patients could become a valuable treatment, and we confirm the interactive mechanism between ozone and RA-SFc

Very low level laser therapy attenuates edema and pain in experimental models.
Int J Tissue React. 2004;26(1-2):29-37.
In this study, we tested a new square wave microprocessor-controlled red laser with an extremely low peak power output (<3 mW; very low level laser therapy [vLLLT]) in experimental pain in the rat. Acute inflammation was induced by intraplantar injection of carrageenan, chronic inflammation was induced by complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) and neuropathic pain was produced by sciatic nerve chronic constriction injury (CCI). In our study vLLLT was effective in reducing edema and hyperalgesia in acute and chronic inflammation if administered at the points usually selected for acupuncture. Moreover, spontaneous pain and thermal hyperalgesia were reduced in CCI rats treated with vLLLT In conclusion, vLLLT reduced edema and induced analgesia in experimental plantar pain in rats. We interpret this to mean that enkephalin mRNA level was strongly upregulated in the external layers of the dorsal horn of the spinal cord in CFA and CCI animals, and that vLLLT further increased the mRNA level in single neurons.
