Inactivating influenza viruses on surfaces using hydrogen peroxide or triethylene glycol at low vapor concentrations( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any of the exposed surfaces in airplanes can become contaminated with infectious viruses, such as influenza, and facilitate transmission of disease. In this study, we disinfected surfaces contaminated with influenza viruses. Selection of the specific decontamination agents used in this study was based on three criteria: 1) no harm would be caused to the mechanical components or avionics of the airplane, 2) no potentially harmful residue would be left behind, and 3) the airplane could quickly be returned to service. We chose two decontamination agents that we believed fulfilled these criteria: 1) hydrogen peroxide (HP) at vapor concentrations in air below 100 ppm and 2) triethylene glycol (TEG) saturated air, which has a TEG vapor concentration of about 2 ppm at 25 C. For influenza viruses deposited on stainless-steel coupons and exposed for 15 min to 10 to 90 ppm of HP vapor, the number of log reductions of active viruses ranged from 3.6 to 4.7. The number of log reductions, however, was not linear with time; log reduction rate decreased significantly with increasing exposure time. For example, at a HP vapor concentration of 57 ppm, the number of log reductions was 3.2 after 2.5 min but just 4.0 after 10 min. Even after 60 min, the number of log reductions was only 5.6. At a HP vapor concentration of 10 ppm, the number of log reductions was 2.0 after 2.5 min. This corresponds to 99% inactivation of viruses, a significant reduction for such a low HP vapor concentration. For air saturated with TEG at 25-29 C, the number of log reductions of influenza viruses versus exposure time followed a linear relationship reasonably well. The decontamination rate was equal to 1.3 log reductions per hour. The potential for damage to the mechanical components or avionics of the airplane at a TEG vapor concentration of 2 ppm would be expected to be minimal. In addition, at a 2 ppm TEG vapor concentration, there is essentially no health risk to people

Disinfectants and disinfectant by-products by John D Spengler( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book evaluates the risks to human health posed by disinfectants and disinfectant by-products found in treated drinking-water. Noting that chlorine and other widely-used disinfectants were approved for use almost 100 years ago when toxicological data were limited the report responds to the need for reassurance that consumption of treated drinking-water will not have adverse effects on health. Particular concern centres on the potential of chlorine to react with natural organic matter and form a large number of by-products some of which have been intensively studied as potential human carci

Air toxics exposure from vehicle emissions at a U.S. border crossing : Buffalo Peace Bridge study( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Review Committee noted that the Buffalo Peace Bridge Study by Spengler and his colleagues makes valuable contributions to HEI's hot-spot assessment program in several areas. First and foremost, their presentation of how to thoroughly characterize levels of air toxics surrounding a putative hot spot for mobile-source air pollution emissions is exemplary
