Today's RNS is great news indeed.

When I spoke last week with Andrew Waters CFO, he went into quite a lot of detail about these trials but I did not write much about this in my note here on Stockopedia as I did not want to get side-tracked from the already excellent newsflow.

These are clinical studies at the University of Cardiff on a number of mouthwash brands including VLG brands Dentyl and I think Ultradex also. Dentyl is a unique formulation including CPC. There are 2 trials:

The first is a test tube trial and tests to see how quickly the virus is eradicated in a test tube. The result was released today show that Venture Life's two CPC based mouthwashes eradicated the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus completely (>5log reduction, equivalent to 99.999%) within a 30 second exposure.

The second test is on infected people and tests the effectiveness of mouthwash at eradicating virus after 15, 30, 45 and 60 minute intervals. The result will appear early next year.

If effective, it is hoped that Venture Life's mouthwash brands Dentyl and Ultradex become part of the virus toolkit along with handwash, masks and social distancing.
