1841. Photodynamic therapy with topical delta-aminolaevulinic acid for the treatment of plantar warts. (PubMed)

Photodynamic therapy with topical delta-aminolaevulinic acid for the treatment of plantar warts. Treatments currently employed for plantar warts are often painful (electrosurgery, cryotherapy) and not always effective (keratolytic agents). In this paper we investigate the effect of photodynamic therapy (PDT) with topical delta-aminolaevulinic acid (ALA) on plantar warts. In order to remove the superficial hyperkeratotic layer of the warts an ointment containing 10% urea and 10% salicylic acid (...) . By contrast only 13 (22.8%) of the 57 control warts had done so. During the treatment a few patients complained of a mild burning sensation. The absorption of ALA by the verrucous tissue was demonstrated by in vivo fluorescence spectroscopy. This study shows that topical ALA-PDT can be an alternative treatment for plantar warts. Further studies will be necessary in order to optimize the concentration of ALA and duration of treatment.

1842. Oral zinc sulphate in the treatment of recalcitrant viral warts: randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial. (PubMed)

Oral zinc sulphate in the treatment of recalcitrant viral warts: randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial. Viral warts are common dermatological diseases; although the rate of spontaneous recovery is high, it usually takes a long time, and some patients might not show this spontaneous healing. Zinc has an important effect on the immune system and it has been used as an immunomodulator to treat a variety of skin disorders.To assess whether oral zinc was effective in treating viral warts (...) of patients evaluated between May 1999 and April 2000.This was a placebo-controlled clinical trial. Eighty patients with viral warts (common, plantar and plane) were all resistant to all forms of treatment. Each patient had > 15 warts. Forty patients were treated by oral zinc sulphate at a dose of 10 mg kg(-1) daily up to 600 mg day(-1) and followed-up for resolution of their warts and for any evidence of recurrence for 2-6 months. Another 40 patients were given a placebo oral treatment in the form

1843. Combined surgery and cidofovir is an effective treatment for genital warts in HIV-infected patients. (PubMed)

Combined surgery and cidofovir is an effective treatment for genital warts in HIV-infected patients. To evaluate the efficacy of surgical-cidofovir (SCT), surgical (ST) and cidofovir (CT) treatment of genital warts in HIV-infected patients.Open randomized prospective pilot study.Outpatients attending the sexually transmitted disease service of the II Dept of Infectious Diseases, L Sacco Hospital, Milan-Italy.Consenting HIV-positive patients with anal-genital warts recruited from January 2000 (...) to March 2001.Three treatment arms: surgical excision by electrocautery, topical 1% cidofovir-gel (5 days per week, maximum 6 weeks) and electrocautery-cidofovir treatment with 1% cidofovir-gel applied within 1 month of surgical treatment (5 days per week for 2 weeks).Rate of wart clearance and time and rate of relapses within a 6-month follow-up period.Complete response was achieved in 93.1% of 29 patients treated by ST, 76.2% of 26 treated by CT and in 100% of 19 patients treated by SCT (P = 0.0033

1844. The efficacy of duct tape vs cryotherapy in the treatment of verruca vulgaris (the common wart). (PubMed)

The efficacy of duct tape vs cryotherapy in the treatment of verruca vulgaris (the common wart). To determine if application of duct tape is as effective as cryotherapy in the treatment of common warts.A prospective, randomized controlled trial with 2 treatment arms for warts in children.The general pediatric and adolescent clinics at a military medical center.A total of 61 patients (age range, 3-22 years) were enrolled in the study from October 31, 2000, to July 25, 2001; 51 patients completed (...) the study and were available for analysis.Patients were randomized using computer-generated codes to receive either cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen applied to each wart for 10 seconds every 2-3 weeks) for a maximum of 6 treatments or duct tape occlusion (applied directly to the wart) for a maximum of 2 months. Patients had their warts measured at baseline and with return visits.Complete resolution of the wart being studied.Of the 51 patients completing the study, 26 (51%) were treated with duct tape

1845. Topical immunomodulators for the treatment of external genital warts, cutaneous warts and molluscum contagiosum. (PubMed)

Topical immunomodulators for the treatment of external genital warts, cutaneous warts and molluscum contagiosum. Topical immunomodulators (TIMs) include both immunostimulatory and immunosuppressive agents. Newer immunostimulatory compounds such as imidazoquinolines (e.g. imiquimod) act by cytokine secretion from monocytes/macrophages (interferon-alpha, interleukin-12, tumour-necrosis factor-alpha), leading to a Th1-dominance and cell-mediated immunity. This immune milieu has been clinically (...) used to treat viral infections such as human papillomavirus (condyloma and common warts), herpes simplex virus and mollusca in immunocompetent and immunosuppressed patients.
