Efficacy of eight commercial disinfectants against Microsporum canis and Trichophyton spp: infective spores on an experimentally contaminated textile surface
Moriello K, Kunder D, Hondzo H.
Dermatophytosis (ringworm), a highly contagious skin infection, is caused by fungus leading to a circular rash on animals and humans. Due to the highly contagious nature of dermatophytosis, proper disinfection of affected surfaces is essential. This study considers a relatively new yet proven chemistry, broadly used in healthcare facilities, known as Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®), in contrast with current chemistries that have known shortcomings.
