Ozonation of Human Blood Increases sphingosine-1-phosphate in Plasma

B Boczkowska-Radziwon et al. J Physiol Pharmacol.


Ozonated blood therapy is used in the treatment of several diseases, including superficial infections, burns, dental and intestinal conditions. Except that, the possibility of using ozone to sterilize blood supplies is under promising investigation. However, still little is known regarding the impact of blood ozonation, especially on biologically active serum sphinoglipids. In the present work we sought to investigate the contents of sphingolipids, such as sphingosine, sphingosine-1-phosphate (S-1-P), sphinganine, and ceramide (CER) in the plasma, after immediate and prolonged (1 h) ozonation of human whole blood. For the measurements liquid chromatography hyphenated with the mass spectrometry was applied. We demonstrated that only the content of sphingosine-1-phosphate in the plasma was increased significantly, possibly exerting its beneficial effect for various physiological and clinical events.
