Abstract

  陸上自衛隊員を対象に二酸化塩素放出薬のインフルエンザ様疾患に対する予防効果を検討した.低濃度の二酸化塩素放出薬介入群と非介入群を設定し,介入した期間のインフルエンザ様症状の有無やワクチン接種の有無などについて検討した.その結果,二酸化塩素放出薬の介入でインフルエンザ様疾患の患者数の有意な減少を認め,二酸化塩素放出薬がインフルエンザ様疾患の発生を減じる可能性が示唆された.<br>

  The preventive effect against influenza-like illness by low-concentration chlorine dioxide gas was examined among Japan Ground Self Defense Force soldiers and civilians at a particular camp assigned for this study. The chlorine dioxide gas-exposed group consisted of all individuals who worked in a particular building, and the unexposed group consisted of all individuals who worked in the neighboring building. After this trial, a questionnaire survey was carried out to establish the demographic data of each group, how many members had influenza-like illness in each group, and how many members were immunized against influenza. The results showed that the relative risk of influenza-like illness after chlorine dioxide gas exposure was 0.32 (95% confidence interval between 0.15 and 0.69), although the vaccination rate in the exposed group was lower than the unexposed group. This result suggests that chlorine dioxide gas has preventive effects against influenza-like illness.<br>
