Medical Researches

Stanford Medicine

  • Medical Research by Oliver E Bryd, Ed.D, M.D. of Stanford University.

  • The highest incidence of all tinea infections was found between the age of 11 and 40 years.
  • A reduction in the normal resistance of the skin is more important than exposure to a particular fungus as a course of athlete’s foot.

  • Controlled test population using ŌNOX Foot Solution® had an advantage of nearly 3 to 1 in preventing and curing Athlete's Foot. 

  • Medical Research by Dr. A.J. Salle, Head of the Department of Bacteriology - University of California at Los Angeles
  • Dr. Salle studied the “skin toughener” (ŌNOX Foot Solution®) being sold as a bromhidrosis, hyperhidrosis, and athlete’s foot preventive.
  • The astringent action of zinc chloride was due to the action of the zinc ion in precipitating protein and that this action resulted in a contraction and toughening of the skin, which he concluded would make the latter more resistant to the action of a fungus.
  • The product under investigation (ŌNOX) was relatively nontoxic to living tissue and could be repeatedly applied to the skin without harm, and that it made the skin a very unfavorable environment for the growth of fungus, so that even if the skin were infected with fungi, they would not grow or reproduce in sufficient numbers to cause athlete’s foot.

  • Preliminary Study on the Utilization of ŌNOX Solution for the Control of Bromhidrosis and Hyperhidrosis.
  • The California College of Podiatric Medicine and various podiatric practitioners’ offices have elected to utilize ŌNOX solution in the control of bromhidrosis, hyperhidrosis and chronic tinea pedis. This solution has been utilized over the last 10 months in the patient population of 77 patients, with satisfactory control of hydrosis and bromhidrosis achieved in 96 percent of the cases reviewed.
