(ATDN) Warts Treatment

November 1, 1995
Treatment Review No. 20; November 1995

A cream called imiquimod is being studied at New York University Medical Center as a new treatment for anal and genital warts. The cream stimulates the body to produce a substance called alpha-interferon where the cream is applied. Alpha-interferon is a natural substance called a cytokine that may help the body get rid of the warts. For a referral to this study, call the Network at (800) 734-7104, or in New York City call (800) 448-2775.
