Swedish company Enzymatica has announced that the preliminary results of an in vitro study showing the ability of the mouth spray ColdZyme to deactivate SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic.

• The study demonstrated that ColdZyme deactivates SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus by 98.3 per cent.

• The results indicate that ColdZyme can offer a protective barrier against harmful viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 by local virus deactivation in the oral cavity, the company said in a regulatory filing on 20 July.

• ColdZyme is a mouth spray that forms a barrier in the oral cavity against common cold viruses.

• The barrier solution of the device is mainly composed of glycerol and Atlantic cod trypsin.

• “A virucidal efficacy suspension test was conducted using ColdZyme against SARS-CoV-2. ColdZyme deactivated SARS-CoV-2 by 98.3% (1.76 log10) in 20 minutes.

• "Furthermore, no cytotoxicity was detected for ColdZyme at any dilution tested,” the company statement said.

• ColdZyme sprayed onto the mouth and throat could lower the risk of infection, and decrease the viral load locally. The lowered viral load may decrease viral shedding and thus minimize the spread of SARS-CoV-2, it added.
