|Re: How To Best Deal With Warts
Mar 22, 2014
Is there any clinical data on the HPV vaccines in HIV+ patients and its impact on their warts?
Thanks, in advance, for your answer.
| Response from Dr. Henry
There is some data that the HPV vaccine may be somewhat effective in younger HIV+ patients at preventing acquisition of new HPV strains. I have seen no data on efficacy at actually treating warts (would not expect much benefit). If any reader knows of a reference on effect on warts please post. KH
