  1. Inactivation of respiratory syncytial virus by detergents and disinfectants.

    Article - En anglais

    The activity of a number of detergents and disinfectants against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) was evaluated in an in vitro assay system.

    Equal volumes of RSV and serial 10-fold dilutions of the test agents were mixed at 4oC for 5 minutes.

    The RSV titer in each mixture was compared with that of untreated RSV alone.

    In 14 experiments with input RSV titers ranging from 2.6x103 to 2x107 plaque-forming units/ ml, a 10-fold dilution of 5.25% sodium hypochlorite (generic bleach) inactivated (>=3-log reduction in titer) the virus.

    With lower RSV titers inactivation was also observed at a 100-fold dilution of bleach.
