The study took into account the family belief and practices, members were asked to record the timing and duration of respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases. Each family had at least one child of age between 6 months and 5 yrs who goes to a day care or any school. The study had looked into data collected for over four weeks in such a manner for 261 families. Researchers had observed 1545 respiratory problems and 360 gastrointestinal problems as primary illnesses introduced into the family. 33% of the families had been using alcohol based hand sanitizers for some time during the day.

The study results show that the gels or hand sanitizers act as a protective agent against respiratory illness that gets transmitted amongst members of the family.
