Warts: The cure rates in the U.S. Study are impressive, even better than those in the turkish study. The main difference between the two may be in patient selection: unlike the placebo-controlled trial, the open-label study did not require a minimum of five warts. Placebo-controlled trials are useful, especially for warts. Taken together, the studies suggest that Cimetidine may not be better than placebo.
