STOCKHOLM, Sept. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On July 20 Enzymatica announced the preliminary results from the in vitro study, showing that the mouth spray ColdZyme® deactivates SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic. The results of the study, which also includes the common cold virus HCoV-229E, have now been published in the Journal of Medical Virology in the article "Inactivation of SARS-CoV-2 and HCoV-229E in vitro by a medical device mouth spray".
The conclusion of the study is that the mouth spray ColdZyme can inactivate the respiratory coronaviruses SARS-CoV-2 and HCoV-229E in vitro, by 98.3% and 99.9% respectively.
