Burian, E. A., Sabah, L., Kirketerp-Møller, K., Gundersen, G., & Ågren, M. S. (2022). Effect of stabilized hypochlorous acid on re-epithelialization and bacterial bioburden in acute wounds: A randomized controlled trial in healthy volunteers. Acta Dermato-Venereologica, 102, adv00727-adv00727.
Median bacterial counts were lower with stabilized hypochlorous acid compared with control and were further reduced after irrigation and treatment of both groups on day 4, but remained lower in the stabilized hypochlorous acid group compared with the control group. This study demonstrates immediate and durable antimicrobial action and a beneficial effect on acute wound healing after irrigation and treatment with a stabilized hypochlorous acid formulation.
