Hydrogen Peroxide shown again to underwhelm
Yet again Hydrogen Peroxide falls short. Published in Clinical Oral Investigations doi https://doi.org/10.1007/s00784-020-03549-1
A prospective clinical pilot study on the effects of a hydrogen peroxide mouthrinse on the intraoral viral load of SARS-CoV-2. Has concluded " A 1% hydrogen peroxide mouthrinse does not reduce the intraoral viral load in SARS-CoV-2 positive subjects".
A previous paper said it was "minimally effective"
Another study (preprint) demostrates PVP-I viral clearance as defined by ECDC by Day 4.
Viral clearance is defined as the presence of negative SARS-COV-2 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results from at least two upper respiratory tract samples, collected at >24hrs intervals(ECDC 2020)
Study was registered in clinicaltrial.gov (NCT04410159)
