Mouthwash/Spray that Neutralizes Coronavirus in the Upper Respiratory System

Summary of the technology

Mouthwash/Spray that Neutralizes Coronavirus in the Upper Respiratory System
Project ID : 47-2020-10895

Yissum - Research Development Company of the Hebrew University

Details of the Technology Offer

We propose a spray or mouthwash containing nanoparticles with unique chemical and physical properties that neutralize the virus upon spraying or gargling, by a combination of chemical and irradiation methods. This proposed mouthwash/spray will inhibit and/or reduce virus infiltration into the lungs, especially in infection-prone populations for prevention and early-stage treatment. In addition, this product can be used to protect medical teams dealing with corona patients.

Additionally, the nanoparticles may be used in the future to neutralize additional viruses.
