Complementary treatment with oral pidotimod plus vitamin C after laser vaporization for female genital warts: a prospective study

J Med Life. Jul-Sep 2010;3(3):286-8.

Abstract

This is a prospective study to assess a complementary treatment for genital warts after laser vaporization. 62 patients were enrolled in two randomized groups: Al: laser vaporization alone. A2: laser vaporization, followed with Pidotimod plus vitamin C for 2 1/2 months. The latter treatment shortened the time of warts remission and marginally decreased the rate of the warts' recurrence: 81% versus 67% (N.S.). Despite the non-significant difference, this complementary treatment seems to have some efficiency.
