Havana.- The province of Camagüey, in the eastern area of the country, promotes an ozone-therapy program for the treatment of children suffering from different diseases.
Facilities for this purpose were set up at the territorial clinic for pediatric specialties, which can provide treatment for 120 cases a day.
The facility includes children, not only from Camagüey, but also from Ciego de Avila and Las Tunas; with the previous presentation of the routine exams.
Some of the ozone treated diseases include asthma, intestinal parasitism, ophthalmologic diseases, cerebral-vascular diseases, osteoarthritis, hepatitis A, B and C; ischemic cardiopathy, chronic renal failure, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia and systemic lupus erythematosus.
In Cuba, ozone was first used in 1981 for the decontamination of potable water, and the Ozone Research Center has promoted the extensive use of this low-cost alternative.
