Conclusion

These findings support stabilized HOCl solution as an ideal wound care solution with a powerful and rapid killing effect on different types of microorganisms, antibiofilms, and microbicidal effect within the biofilm. Foremost, it has dose-dependent favorable effects on fibroblast and keratinocyte migration. These features lead to a stabilized HOCl solution as an ideal wound care agent. Randomized, prospective clinical trials are required to determine in vivo relevance of these findings.
