‘Hypochlorous acid (HOCl) has emerged as a promising broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of infectious diseases. HOCl is a natural component of the immune system and has been shown to be effective against a wide range of pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Numerous studies have demonstrated the safety and efϐicacy of HOCl in various clinical settings. HOCl has been shown to be effective in wound care, infection control, and oral hygiene, among other applications. In addition, HOCl has been shown to have a low toxicity proϐile and a low potential for inducing resistance, making it an attractive alternative to traditional antimicrobial agents. One of the key advantages of HOCl is its broad-spectrum activity. HOCl is effective against both Gram-positive and Gramnegative bacteria, as well as antibiotic-resistant strains such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). HOCl has also been shown to be effective against viruses such as inϐluenza and norovirus, as well as fungi such as Candida albicans. Another advantage of HOCl is its non-toxicity. Unlike traditional antimicrobial agents, HOCl has a low potential for inducing resistance and does not harm human cells or tissues. This makes it an attractive alternative for use in wound care and other clinical settings where traditional antimicrobial agents may be toxic or ineffective. In conclusion, HOCl is a safe, promising, and effective broad-spectrum antimicrobial agent that has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of infectious diseases. Further research is needed to fully understand the mechanisms by which HOCl acts as an antimicrobial agent and to develop safe and effective treatment strategies for speciϐic applications. However, the potential of HOCl as a non-toxic, non-resistance antimicrobial agent is promising and warrants further investigation.’
