INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of ClO2 with regard to viruses which show a particular resistance to oxidizing agent such as HAV and Norwalk and Norwalk-like viruses, and which play an important role in the epidemiology of viral foodborne diseases. In the food industry, disinfection of processing systems and equipment is a very important instrument to prevent secondary contamination and to guarantee food safety. Among disinfectants, chlorine dioxide (ClO2…

Effectiveness of Disinfection with Chlorine Dioxide on Respiratory Transmitted, Enteric, and Bloodborne Viruses: A Narrative Synthesis
ClO2 is a versatile virucidal agent suitable for different environmental matrices suitable for eliminating respiratory transmitted, enteric, and bloodborne viruses.
Inactivation of Caliciviruses
The Caliciviridae family of viruses contains clinically important human and animal pathogens, as well as vesivirus 2117, a known contaminant of biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes employing
Factors in the Selection of Surface Disinfectants for Use in a Laboratory Animal Setting.
Efficacy testing revealed that most of the products were highly effective when used against viral vectors in suspension, however, when the disinfectants were challenged by buffering virus in protein or drying virus on nonporous surfaces, the hypochlorite and peroxymonosulfate products performed the best.
Processing Strategies to Inactivate Hepatitis A Virus in Food Products: A Critical Review
A structured and systematic review of the published literature on the current state of knowledge regarding the stability of HAV in foods as well as the efficacy of food processing strategies to identify and prioritize research gaps regarding practical and effective mechanisms to reduce HAV contamination of foods.
Inactivation Kinetics and Mechanism of a Human Norovirus Surrogate on Stainless Steel Coupons via Chlorine Dioxide Gas
Treatment with ClO2 gas can serve as an effective method to inactivate a human norovirus surrogate on SS contact surfaces and included degradation of viral protein, disruption of viral structure, and degrade of viral genomic RNA.
Outbreaks, occurrence, and control of norovirus and hepatitis a virus contamination in berries: A review
It was found that fecally infected food handlers were the predominant source of preharvest and postharvest pathogenic viral contamination of berries, and current industrial practices applied to fresh and frozen berries demonstrated limited efficacy for reducing the viral load.
Retention of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in oyster tissues after chlorine dioxide treatment.
Resistance of Enteric Viruses on Fomites
The study of virus survival following natural contamination is challenging, and most published studies are laboratory based, using experimental contamination, and recent and detailed data on the resistance of each of the main enteric viruses on fomites are scarce.

Foodborne viruses: an emerging problem
Inactivation of human and simian rotaviruses by chlorine dioxide
The observed enhancement of virucidal efficiency with increasing pH was contrary to earlier findings with chlorine- and ozone-treated rotavirus particles, where efficiencies decreased with increasing alkalinity.
Mechanisms of inactivation of poliovirus by chlorine dioxide and iodine
It is concluded that chlorine dioxide inactivated poliovirus is inactivated by reacting with the viral RNA and impairing the ability of the viral genome to act as a template for RNA synthesis.
Efficiency of chlorine dioxide as a bactericide.
Chlorine dioxide was found to be a more effective disinfectant than chlorine in sewage effluent at pH 8.5 and a more stable bactericide in relation to pH in the range studied.
A Review of Chlorine Dioxide in Drinking Water Treatment (PDF)
There is increased interest in using chlorine dioxide to treat drinking water for trihalomethane control, taste and odor control, oxidation of iron and manganese, and oxidant-enhanced coagulation
