ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

The advent of old diseases in new places, of newly-emerging infectious diseases not seen before, and of highly resistant organisms, has complicated disaster response and the management of displaced populations. One method for addressing that developing risk is to attack pathogens before they become life-threatening infections using area and wound decontamination and disinfection techniques....

Virucidal effect of acidic electrolyzed water and neutral electrolyzed water on avian influenza viruses

Microbe(s): Archives of Virology 159.3 (2014): 405-412

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

The virucidal effects of two types of electrolyzed water, acidic electrolyzed water (AEW) and neutral electrolyzed water (NEW), on avian influenza viruses were studied. Virus titers of the highly pathogenic H5N1 virus and the low-pathogenic H9N2 virus irreversibly decreased by >5-log at 1 min after the viruses were mixed with NEW containing 43 ppm free available chlorine (FAC), but not with...

Inactivation of a hepadnavirus by electrolysed acid water

Microbe(s): Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy 46.3 (2000): 363-368

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Glutaraldehyde is used as a disinfectant for endoscopes, but is an irritant and so should be replaced by an alternative. Electrolysed acid water (EAW) has a bactericidal effect, and an endoscopic washing device using EAW has been developed in Japan. To investigate the effect of EAW on the infectivity of viruses, we treated duck hepatitis B virus (DHBV), which has similar properties to hepatitis B...

Disinfection potential of electrolyzed solutions containing sodium chloride at low concentrations

Microbe(s): Journal of Virological Methods 85.1 (2000): 163-174

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Electrolyzed products of sodium chloride solution were examined for their disinfection potential against hepatitis B virus (HBV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in vitro. Electrolysis of 0.05% NaCl in tap water was carried out for 45 min at room temperature using a 3 A electric current in separate wells installed with positive and negative electrodes. The electrolyzed products were...

In vitro inactivation of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus and pseudorabies virus by slightly acidic electrolyzed water

Microbe(s): The Veterinary Journal 197.2 (2013): 297-301

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Slightly acidic electrolyzed water (SAEW, pH 5.0 6.5) is a novel disinfectant with environmentally friendly broad spectrum microbial decontamination properties which could have significant utility on farm. Two of the most important pathogenic viruses in pigs are porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) and pseudorabies virus (PRV). The aim of this study was to evaluate the...

Aerosol disinfection capacity of slightly acidic hypochlorous acid water towards Newcastle disease virus in the air: An in vivo experiment.

Microbe(s): Avian Diseases 59.4 (2015): 486-491

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Existence of bioaerosol contaminants in farms and outbreaks of some infectious organisms with the ability of transmission by air increase the need for enhancement of biosecurity, especially for the application of aerosol disinfectants. Here we SAHW containing 50 ppm chlorine in the aqueous phase. These data suggest that SAHW containing 100 ppm chlorine can be used for aerosol disinfection of NDV...

A novel electrolyzed sodium chloride solution for the disinfection for dried HIV-1

Microbe(s): Bulletin of Osaka Medical College 48 (2003): 29-36

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Electrolyzed products of a sodium chloride solution contain free residual chlorine and have been proved to be effective for disinfection. Electrolyzed strong acid water containing a low sodium chloride concentration (ESW-L) is prepared by the electrolysis of a solution containing a low sodium chloride concentration (0.1% or less). Although ESW-L has been confirmed to be an effective disinfectant,...

Evaluation of liquid-and fog-based application of Sterilox hypochlorous acid solution for surface inactivation of human norovirus

Microbe(s): Applied and environmental microbiology 73.14 (2007): 4463-4468

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Noroviruses (NVs) are the most frequent cause of outbreaks of gastroenteritis in common settings, with surface-mediated transfer via contact with fecally contaminated surfaces implicated in exposure. NVs are environmentally stable and persistent and have a low infectious dose. Several disinfectants have been evaluated for efficacy to control viruses on surfaces, but the toxicity and potential...

Endoscope contamination from HBV- and HCV-positive patients and evaluation of a cleaning/disinfecting method using strongly acidic electrolyzed water

Microbe(s): Digestive Endoscopy 15.1 (2003): 19-24

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Background: It is well known that strongly acidic electrolyzed water (SAEW) has a potent bactericidal effect. We examined residual viruses on endoscopes that were used in hepatitis B virus (HBV)-positive and hepatitis C virus (HCV)-positive patients and evaluated the effectiveness of SAEW in cleaning/disinfecting the endoscopes. Methods: A random sample of endoscopes used in 109 endoscopies on...

Efficacy of electrolyzed acid water in reprocessing patient used flexible upper endoscopes: Comparison with 2% alkaline glutaraldehyde

Microbe(s): Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology 19.8 (2004): 897-903

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Background and Aim: Two percent glutaraldehyde, the most widely used liquid chemical germicide (LCG), may be hazardous to patients and medical personnel. Alternatives to glutaraldehyde, such as electrolyzed acid water (EAW), are being developed, but data from well-controlled studies with patient-used endoscopes are rare. The purpose of the present paper was to evaluate the high-level...

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

The ability of acidic electrolyzed oxidizing water (AEO) and neutral electrolyzed oxidizing water (NEO) to inactivate the murine norovirus (MNV-1) surrogate for human norovirus and hepatitis A virus (HAV) in suspension and on stainless steel coupons in the presence of organic matter was investigated. Viruses containing tryptone (0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0) were mixed with AEO and NEO...
