This 2014 study looked into ozone as a possible treatment for interstitial cystitis. They used rabbits and induced a chemical cystitis which replicated IC. They found that ozone administered direct into the bladder resulted in anti-inflammatory effects and was possibly a potential treatment option for IC.

To me a chemical cystitis is a damaged bladder lining. I'm not sure that could be considered a true replication. It's interesting that ozone is proven to kill bacteria, viruses and fungus on contact. I wonder if this is a potential treatment option then?

The simple reason why many of these treatments aren't used is because they don't appear on the PBS, urologists and any health care prac would need guts to try any treatment that wasnt approved by the government first.
