Using bioinformatics tools, a team led by Shane Crotty and Alessandro Sette, immunologists at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology, predicted which viral protein pieces would provoke the most powerful T cell responses. They then exposed immune cells from 10 patients who had recovered from mild cases of COVID-19 to these viral snippets. Photo: NIAID

Mouthwashes vary widely in composition; however, some commercially available formulations contain ethanol at 14-27% (w/v) in the UK, Europe and US. This article reviewed the available scientific literature to establish whether oral treatment using ethanol-based or other types of mouthwashes could present a strategy to either dampen or reduce viral load, to potentially restrict virus transmission in the current pandemic situation, particularly for vulnerable individuals or healthcare workers.
