Efficacy of accelerated hydrogen peroxide® disinfectant on foot-and-mouth disease virus, swine vesicular disease virus and Senecavirus A

Journal of Applied Microbiology
K. Hole, F. Ahmadpour, J. Krishnan, C. Stansfield, J. Copps, C. Nfon (2017).
In a laboratory, disinfectants used to inactivate pathogens on contaminated surfaces and to prevent spread of diseases often have adverse side effects on personnel and the environment. It is, therefore, essential to find safer, fast-acting and yet effective disinfectants. The objective of this study was to evaluate an accelerated hydrogen peroxide® (AHP®)-based disinfectant against high consequence foreign animal disease pathogens such as foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) and swine vesicular disease virus (SVDV), as well as Senecavirus A (SVA), which causes similar lesions as FMDV and SVDV.

Evaluation of the Efficacy of Disinfectant Footmats for the Reduction of Bacterial Contamination on Footwear in a Large Animal Veterinary Hospital

American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine
K.J. Hornig, B.A. Burgess, N.T. Saklou, V. Johnson, A. Malmlov, D.C. Van Metre, P.S. Morley, and S.R. Byers​ (2016)
During times of epidemic disease, it is common to find extensive environmental contamination and pathogens may persist in the environment for months after such an event.2–5 Many North American VTHs utilize footbaths and footmats at entrances and key control points throughout the veterinary hospital in an endeavor to decrease trafficking of pathogenic microorganism on contaminated footwear..

Enhanced inactivation of avian influenza virus at -20°C by disinfectants supplemented with calcium chloride or other antifreeze agents

Can J Vet Res 2015
Guan, J; Chan, M.; Brooks, B; Rohonczy, E. (2015).
Avian influenza viruses (AIVs) continue to be a threat to the poultry industry.  Since 2004, there have been at least 6 outbreaks of AIV infection in Canada, and several of these occurred in regions where winter temperatures as low as -20°C are common.  Canada’s eradication policy to control these outbreaks requires euthanizing all birds on infected premises, safely disposing of carcasses and wastes, and then cleaning and decontamination of buildings, vehicles and equipment.

Pork Producers have another option for disinfecting against PEDv.

Michigan State University Extension, April 14, 2015.
Ferry, B.; Benjamin, M. (2015).
Typically a disinfectant becomes neutralized in the presence of organic soils. Therefore, complete washing, disinfecting and drying of equipment is essential but very time consuming. In this study, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) successfully inactivated PEDv in the presence of both light and heavy fecal loads (up to 25%) at both tested concentrations at room temperature.

Efficacy of disinfection on the molecular detection of porcine epidemic diarrhea virus.

Vet. Microbiol.
Bowman et al. (2015).
Routine detection of PEDv is currently limited to RT-PCR bust this test cannot distinguish between viable and inactivated virus. We evaluated the capability of disinfectants, including Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) to inactivate PEDv and sufficiently damage viral RNA beyond RT-PCR detection.

Guidelines to Controlling Infectious Folliculitis and Dermatophytosis. Vet Clinic Equine 29 pg. 559-575.

Weese, J.S. & Yu, A.A. (2013)
Bacterial, dermatophilosis and superficial ringworm infections are common skin diseases noted in equine dermatology. The ability to recognize and accurately diagnose the skin condition is key to selecting an appropriate and successful treatment regimen. The purpose of this guideline is to provide direction on infection control measures to prevent and impede the spread of these pathogens to protect animals and humans alike.
