The correlation between cycles of acute cardiac infarction (ACI) and the total ozone content (TOC) variations is considered. The results of correlation analysis of the series of ACI and TOC indices for the period from 1986 to 2001 in Tomsk are presented. It is shown that the ACI level significantly depends on the variations of the ozonosphere, modulating the level of UV-B solar radiation reaching the earth's surface. Significant coefficients of positive correlation between the ACI and TOC indices are obtained, both for complete series of monthly values over the entire period considered, especially, for warm half-year (April-September), and for annually mean values as well.
