mouthrinse octenidine

Transmission of SARS-CoV-2 via droplet transmission, especially from asymptomatic and presymptomatic individuals, are of great concern. The use of an antiviral mouth rinse might serve as an important tool for temporal viral clearance. In this pilot study, the SARS-CoV-2 RNA concentration was determined in 8 SARS-CoV-2 positive individuals prior and post oral rinsing with an octenidine based antiseptic rinsing solution. We provide first evidence that antiseptic solutions based on octenidine might temporarily reduce the SARS-CoV-2 concentration in the oral cavity.
