  • Gonorrhea


    Infectious Diseases



    RB Jones, and the Trovafloxacin Gonorrhea Study Group [Indiana
    Univ; Indianapolis; Univ of Alabama, Birmingham; Memphis Women’s
    Ctr, Tenn; et al]

    Randomized Trial of Trovafloxacin and Ofloxacin for Single-Dose Therapy of Gonorrhea

    Am J Med 104 : 28-32, 1998



    Study
    comprised 625 women and men, suffering from
    gonococcal infection of the cervix and or urethra in
    the former and urethritis in the latter.   

     A single dose of 400 mgm of ofloxacin   
    was curative in 98% of the subjects and results
    with trovafloxacin in a dose of 100 mgm were 99%.
    Both agents therefore are effective.

         
  • Genital Warts




    KR Beutner, SL Spruance, AJ Hougham, et al [ Univ of California, San Francisco;
    Sutter-Solano Med Ctr, Vallejo, Calif; Univ of Utah, Salt Lake City; et al]

    Treatment of Genital Warts With an Immune-response Modifier [Imiquimod]

    J Am Acad Dermatol 38: 230-239, 1998

        

    The
    compound described in this article is a nonnucleoside
    heterocyclic amine [imiquimod]   that in mice induces formation of tumor necrosis
    factor-(  and
    interleukins 1,6 and 8.


    A 5% cream was applied to the affected areas thrice a
    week for a period of eight weeks. 40% of the treated
    group cleared completely.  The rest showed over 50% improvement.


    The importance of this study lies in indicating that
    immunomodulation may be a better way to treat tumors and
    warts than mechanical removal.
