Abstract In the present study we measured the amount of 8-oxo-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-oxo-dG) in DNA isolated from lymphocytes of arteriosclerotic patients undergoing ozonetherapy. Treatment of the patients with therapeutic concentration of ozone caused a significant increase over the control value in the amount of 8-oxo-dG of DNA isolated from their lymphocytes. However, only three out of six patients examined responded positively to the treatment in terms of the base damage. The increases varied among patients, and were in the range of 100-450\%. This interindividual difference may at least be partly explained by recently demonstrated heritable susceptibility to ozone. Copyright 1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
