"...we have demonstrated that ESAW and EWAW have powerful microbicidal activities and can be used safely, after mechanical cleaning, for the disinfection of upper-gastrointestinal endoscopes."
"At low concentrations and with exposure times which could be achieved through oral rinsing, HOCl stabilized with HAc had a robust antimicrobial activity on oral biofilms, without causing erosion of HA surfaces or affecting viability of oral keratinocytes. This substance thus appears to offer potential for prevention and/or treatment of oral biofilm-mediated diseases."
"All the irrigants showed antibacterial activity and killed the majority of bacteria on the titanium alloy surfaces of biofilm-contaminated implants. Moreover, HOCl significantly lowered the LPS concentration of P. gingivalis when compared with NaOCl and CHX. Thus, a HOCl antiseptic may be effective for cleaning biofilm-contaminated implant surfaces."
"HOCl fog is safe and simple to use, and can reduce levels of nosocomial pathogens by a factor of almost 107. It is worthy of clinical evaluation in clinical settings to determine whether it maintains its microbicidal activity against a variety of organisms on different surfaces."
"Based on this evidence disinfectants where HOCl is the dominant chlorine species (HOCl and ECAS) would be appropriate alternative chlorine-based disinfectants for POU drinking water applications."
