Efficacy of Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® Disinfectants on Foot-and-Mouth Disease Virus, Swine Vesicular Disease Virus and Senecavirus A

Hole K, Ahmadpour F, Krishnan J, Stansfield C, Copps J, Nfon C | Journal of Applied Microbiology (2016)

This study evaluated the activity of AHP® against foot-and-mouth disease virus, swine vesicular disease virus, and Senecavirus A. The findings indicate that AHP® is capable of successfully inactivating each of these viruses.

In Vitro Efficacy of Shampoos Containing Miconazole, Ketoconazole, Climbazole or Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® Against Microsporum canis and Trichophyton Species

Moriello, K. | Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery (2016)

This study explored the efficacy of various topical products to serve as an alternative to lime sulfur dip for the treatment of ringworm in dogs and cats. Consistently, the researchers demonstrated that AHP® was effective in eliminating fungal growth (Microsporum canis and Trichophyton mentagrophytes) after 10 minutes of application.

Efficacy of Endotracheal Tube Disinfection Strategies for Elimination of Streptococcus Zooepidemicus and Bordetella bronchiseptica

Crawford, S. and Weese, J.S. | Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association (2015)

This study evaluated the efficacy of various disinfection strategies for eliminating Bordetella bronchiseptica and Streptococcus zooepidemicus from endotracheal tubes. Two of these strategies involved soaking spraying with AHP® and soaking in AHP®. Clorhexidine and AHP® were the only solutions that successfully eliminated the bacteria from the tube surface.

Disinfectant Wipes are Appropriate to Control Microbial Bioburden from Surfaces: Use of a New ASTM Standard Test Protocol to Demonstrate Efficacy

Sattar S.A., et. al. | Journal of Hospital Infection (2015)

This study evaluated the activity of five disinfectant wipes to decontaminate high-touch environmental surfaces using ASTM Standard E2967-15. While all disinfectants achieved at least a 4-log reduction in bacterial colony forming units (of Staphylococcus aureus and Acinetobacter baumanii), only the AHP® wipe prevented the transfer of bacteria to another surface.

Effects of Disinfection on the Molecular Detection of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus

Bowman, A. et al. | Veterinary Microbiology (2015)

This study evaluated the activity of five classes of disinfectants, including AHP®, against Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv), looking at the ability of each product to damage viral RNA to the extent that it would no longer be detectable by RT-PCR. No infectious PEDv was recovered after treatment with any of the disinfectants. Furthermore, all disinfectants except bleach drastically reduced qRT-PCR values.

Modern Technologies for Improving Cleaning and Disinfection of Environmental Surfaces in Hospital

Boyce, J. | Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control (2016)

While the main focus of this study is on UV-C light-based disinfection systems, the author mentions improved hydrogen peroxide-based disinfectants and the promise that they show as alternatives to traditional disinfectant chemistries.

Efficacy of Disinfectants Containing Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® Against Conidial Arthrospores and Isolated Ineffective Spores of Microsporum canis and Trichophyton sp.

Moriello, K. and Hondzo, H. | Veterinary Dermatology (2014)

This study evaluated the activity of AHP® concentrate and ready-to-use products at three different dilutions against Microsporum and Trichophyton species (fungi which commonly cause ringworm in dogs and cats). Treatment with AHP® consistently resulted in no growth of fungus on the test plates, indicating that AHP® is highly effective against these fungi.
