Evaluation of an accelerated hydrogen peroxide disinfectant to inactivate porcine epidemic diarrhea virus in swine feces on aluminum surfaces under freezing conditions

Written by Virox

Baker K.L., Thomas P.R., Karriker L.A., Ramirez A., Zhang J., Wang C. and Holtkamp D.J. Aluminum coupons were contaminated with porcine epidemic diarrhea virus (PEDv), and then treated with accelerated hydrogen peroxide (AHP®). Samples from these contaminated coupons were subsequently administered to live pigs. AHP® reduced, but did not eliminate, the concentration of active virus on the coupons. No pigs who ingested the inoculum treated with AHP® developed clinical signs of PEDv, indicating that AHP® can effectively inactivate the virus to acceptable levels.
