Effect of electrolyzed water on wound healing

Microbe(s): Artificial organs 24.12 (2000): 984-987

ABSTRACT - Full Text PDF

Electrolyzed water accelerated the healing of full-thickness cutaneous wounds in rats, but only anode chamber water (acid pH or neutralized) was effective. Hypochlorous acid (HOCl), also produced by electrolysis, was ineffective, suggesting that these types of electrolyzed water enhance wound healing by a mechanism unrelated to the well-known antibacterial action of HOCl. One possibility is that...
