Gehring, W.; J. Glutsch; U. Schönian; M. Gehse & M. Gloor, Vergleichende Untersuchung über die Wirkung verschiedener Antiseptika und der Ozonbegasung auf Ulcus cruris-übliche Keime. Zeitschrift für Hautkrankheiten 65: 746-750, 1990.
The germicidal influence of various antiseptics on the bacterial and fungal flora of leg ulcers was studied in vitro. Best effects were achieved by the triphenylmethane dyes brilliant green and methylrosaniline chloride. Chloramine and povidone iodine yielded average results, whereas the germicidal effects of potassium permanganate and eosin were not satisfactory. On the other hand, treatment with ozone resulted in sufficient inactivation of germs–with the only exceptions of Serratia and Klebsiella species.
