A clinical study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a new delivery system for adrninistering salicylic acid for the treatment of verruca vulgaris. The study compared wart resolution among volunteers who used karaya gum patches. The cure rate was 69% for warts treated with patches containing salicylic acid, which was significantly higher (p < 0.01) than for warts treated with control patches (35%).
