Aldara Cream, 5% (Imiquimod)







Genital Warts

  • Aldara™ 5% cream applied 3 times/ week for 4 months; 72% of warts in women and 33% in circumcised men
  • [Edwards L, et al. Arch Dermatol. 1998; 134:25-30]

  • Clearance rates from the glans penis in uncircumsized men is considerably higher: total clearance was achieved in 62% of the patients in the 3 times/ week group and by 57% in the once-daily group.
  • [Gollnick H, et al. Int J STD Aids. 2001; 12:22-8]

  • Experience suggests that external genital wart clearance is even better if combined with other destructive therapy such as cryotherapy or laser.
