Changes of immunological response after experimentally ozonated
autohemoadministration in calves.

Changes in subsets of peripheral blood mononuclear
cells and lymphocyte blastogenesis reaction were observed after ozonated
autohemoadministration (OAHA) in calves. Ten healthy calves were used in
this study. After OAHA, CD8+ cells, CD14+ cells and WCl+cells increased
(p<0.05). The level of lymphocyte blastogenesis stimulated by PHA
decreased after OAHA. A significant increase in serum IL-6 activity was
observed in OAHA calves. These results suggested that OAHA induced
immunological changes in calves.
