We examined the temporal changes in antioxidants, immune-, vasoactive- and pain-associated substances in human blood by therapy to elucidate the mechanism of osteoarthritis in which radon therapy is used as a treatment. Results showed that radon inhalation enhanced the antioxidation and immune function, and that the changes in vasoactive and pain-associated substances indicate increases in tissue perfusion brought about by radon therapy.
