Study With Candida Antigen for Treatment of Warts
The purpose of this study is to look at how people respond to the treatment of warts through use of the Candida Antigen to get an immune response to rid the body of human papillomavirus (HPV). The immune system is the part of the body that fights infections like HPV which causes warts. This research study will examine the response of your wart when injected with a portion of a common yeast(candida) which is the study drug. Your immune system response will also be looked by doing a test called an ELISPOT assay. This test is done with a blod sample and a sample of one of your warts. The results of this test may help us to determine how the candida antigen affects your wart.

Infection with a fungus of the genus CANDIDA. It is usually a superficial infection of the moist areas of the body and is generally caused by CANDIDA ALBICANS. (Dorland, 27th ed)
An important nosocomial fungal infection with species of the genus CANDIDA, most frequently CANDIDA ALBICANS. Invasive candidiasis occurs when candidiasis goes beyond a superficial infection and manifests as CANDIDEMIA, deep tissue infection, or disseminated disease with deep organ involvement.
The process by which antigen is presented to lymphocytes in a form they can recognize. This is performed by antigen presenting cells (APCs). Some antigens require processing before they can be recognized. Antigen processing consists of ingestion and partial digestion of the antigen by the APC, followed by presentation of fragments on the cell surface. (From Rosen et al., Dictionary of Immunology, 1989)
A trisaccharide antigen expressed on glycolipids and many cell-surface glycoproteins. In the blood the antigen is found on the surface of NEUTROPHILS; EOSINOPHILS; and MONOCYTES. In addition, CD15 antigen is a stage-specific embryonic antigen.
Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the A locus on chromosome 6. The HLA-A2 antigen is associated with recognition of the INFLUENZA A VIRUS.

The purpose of this pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (PD) study is: To study the rate and duration of serum cidal activity of caspofungin and micafungin against Candida isolates from t...
Current treatments for warts induce significant local tissue damage and do not prevent recurrence. We evaluated the efficacy of localised radiofrequency heat (RFH) therapy in inducing the long-term re...
Various human papillomavirus of the genera α-, β-, γ-, μ- and η-papillomavirus induce type-specific extragenital warts. Plantar, common and plane warts are the most common types. The closely rela...
ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: The objective of this study is to estimate the incidence of genital warts in Hong Kong and explore a way to establish a surveillance system for genital warts among the Hong Kong...
Young women have poor awareness that human papillomavirus (HPV) can cause both cervical cancer and genital warts, a sexually transmitted infection (STI). A newly developed HPV vaccine can provide prot...
BACKGROUND: Cryotherapy is widely used for the treatment of cutaneous warts in primary care. However, evidence favours salicylic acid application. We compared the effectiveness of these treatments as...
