Popular over-the-counter pain relief product Tri-Solfen® has emerged as an effective treatment for foot and mouth disease.
Writing on the Research Outreach website, Professor Emeritus Peter Windsor and his team at the University of Sydney said Tri-Solfen® may be an inexpensive and effective solution to treat FMD, instead of the antibiotics currently used.
“The anti-bacterial properties in Tri-Solfen® cleverly avoid the need for other treatments, including anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories,” Prof Windsor said.
“This pain-free effect is estimated to last over 24 hours and is sufficient to kill or reduce the virus load without causing pain to the animal.”
