Scientists have concluded that mouthwash products such as “Dentil” can kill “Covid-19” in laboratory conditions, as they considered this a “promising” sign in combating the deadly virus.
A scientific study said, that mouthwash can kill the Corona virus in 30 seconds in the laboratory, as the preliminary result comes before the clinical trial to see whether the use of mouthwash that is dispensed without a doctor’s prescription has the ability to reduce the levels of Covid-10 in the saliva of patients.
And Cardiff University, which conducted the study, indicated that mouthwashes containing at least 0.07% of stearidinium chloride showed promising signs of their ability to fight the virus.
The British newspaper, the Daily Mirror, confirmed in its report today, Tuesday, that the study is still under review, but it supports another study published this week, which concluded that mouthwash products based on this substance are effective in reducing the “viral load” of Covid-19.
The newspaper pointed out that the scientists conducted the latest tests in the university laboratory, where they simulated the conditions of the throat of the person who used mouthwash products, including «Dentil».
She pointed out that another clinical trial will be conducted afterwards to test the effectiveness of face wash in reducing the viral load in the saliva of patients with Covid-19, at the University of Wales Hospital in Cardiff, where it was decided to publish its results in the first part of 2021.
The report stated that “Dentil” is the only mouthwash in the United Kingdom that is participating in the 12-week clinical trial led by Professor David Thomas from Cardiff University under the title: “Measuring the activity of anti-viral mouthwash against Covid-19”.
Dr. Thomas stressed that while mouthwash products are very effective in killing the virus in the laboratory, we need to make sure whether it works in patients, and this is the point of our ongoing clinical study.
He added, “It is important to point out that the study will not give us direct evidence of virus transmission between patients, as this requires a different type of study and on a broader level.”
He continued: “The ongoing clinical study will explain to us the timeframe for continued results, after using mouthwash in patients with“ Covid-19 ”.
Dental prosthesis specialist Dr. Nick Claydon expressed his belief that this study is “extremely valuable”, saying: “If these positive results were reflected in the Cardiff University clinical experience, that is, the use of a mouthwash such as” Dentil “, then it becomes an important addition to the daily routine of a person. That is, using it with washing hands, physical distancing and wearing masks, now and in the future.
