CDC Recommends VEREGEN® as Therapeutic Option for External Genital Warts in the 2010 Sexually Transmitted Diseases Treatment Guidelines
Date:1/5/2011

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- PharmaDerm, a division of Nycomed US Inc., announced today that VEREGEN® (sinecatechins) Ointment, 15%, a topical medication for the treatment of external genital and perianal warts (EGWs), has been added as a new therapeutic option in the 2010 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD) Treatment Guidelines.(1) The new report, developed by the CDC after consultation with a group of professionals knowledgeable in the field of STDs, was published recently in the December 17 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

VEREGEN® is now listed as a patient-applied option as part of the "Recommended Regimens for External Genital Warts" section of the guidelines. Consistent with the product label, the updated guidelines provide recommendations for the use of VEREGEN® in immunocompetent patients ages 18 years and older and instructs patients to apply the ointment three times daily until complete clearance of warts, but no longer than 16 weeks.

EGWs, which appear on the outside of the genitals or around the outside of the anus (perianal warts), are the most common STD in the U.S.(2) Caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), if left untreated, EGWs can grow larger, interfering with bowel movements, urination and sexual intercourse.(3) Approximately 20 million Americans are currently infected with HPV and another 6.2 million people become newly infected each year.(4)

"The CDC STD Treatment Guidelines provide an important source of clinical guidance on both the prevention and management of HPV in the U.S.," stated Theodore Rosen, MD, Professor of Dermatology at Baylor College of Medicine. "Based on the latest scientific evidence, the updated guidelines provide clear direction on how VEREGEN® can routinely be incorporated into medical practice as a safe and effective option for patients seeking treatment for external genital warts."'/>"/>
