Plantar warts are associated with high transmissibility and morbidity. Among the available therapeutic options, none is uniformly effective or virucidal. Salicylic acid is the first-line therapy but a...
Warts are benign neoplasms of the skin and mucosa caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. The most common treatments for wart are topical application of salicylic acid and cryotherapy. Other m...
Many therapeutic modalities were reported for the treatment of warts; however, no single treatment is completely effective.
Cryotherapy and immunotherapeutic modalities elicit nonspecific immune response against the human papillomavirus. There is a paucity of literature on the effects of a sequential shift to immunotherapy...
In recent years, the emergence of drug-resistant bacteria, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), has brought great difficulties to clinical treatment. Antibacterial photodynamic ...
The principal objective of the study is the evaluation of the role of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in plantar warts (prevalence, genotype), resistant or not, treated or not, cured or not. T...
The principal objective of the study is to compare 5 usual strategies in the management of plantar warts which did not cure after 5 weeks of a salicylate ointment given just prior the tria...
- Warts are common viral infections on the skin and are prevalent worldwide. Warts are caused by the human Papilloma virus (HPV), which has more than 100 strains; some of them a...
This study is being done to compare a new, continuous illumination and short Incubation time regimen of aminolevulinic acid photodynamic therapy（ALA-PDT) to a conventional regimen for tr...
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is very common, as most people will experience infection during their lifetime. The most common manifestation of HPV infection is common warts. Common ...
Inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) causing HEEL pain. The plantar fascia (also called plantar aponeurosis) are bands of fibrous tissue extending from the calcaneal tuberosity to the TOES. The etiology of plantar fasciitis remains controversial but is likely to involve a biomechanical imbalance. Though often presenting along with HEEL SPUR, they do not appear to be causally related.
A fibromatosis of the plantar fascia characterized by thickening of the fibrous bands on the plantar aponeurosis in the sole of the foot and toes.
The purified component of HEMATOPORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE, it consists of a mixture of oligomeric porphyrins. It is used in photodynamic therapy (HEMATOPORPHYRIN PHOTORADIATION); to treat malignant lesions with visible light and experimentally as an antiviral agent. It is the first drug to be approved in the use of PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY in the United States.
A bony outgrowth on the lower surface of the CALCANEUS. Though often presenting along with plantar fasciitis (FASCIITIS, PLANTAR), they are not considered causally related.
A strong acid used as a protein precipitant in clinical chemistry and also as a caustic for removing warts.
