polyDNA found that only 44% of respondents knew about Efudex (fluorouracil), a topical ointment, which “interferes with the growth of skin cells.” (See, last revised on October 7, 2013) (1). Some doctors prescribe this topical drug to fight internal vaginal warts even though the FDA has not approved fluorouracil for this purpose. These doctors prescribe it because the drug works by “causing the death of cells which are growing fastest, such as abnormal skin cells (1).” However, “Using fluorouracil to treat genital warts is an unlabeled use of the medicine.” (See WebMD, last updated June 21, 2012) (2). WebMD notes that “An unlabeled use of a drug is when a doctor prescribes a medicine for a purpose other than that for which it has been specifically designed and approved. Sometimes a drug is prescribed for a specific unlabeled use so often that doctors consider it a common practice.” (See WebMD, from March 9, 2012) (3).

If a doctor prescribes Efudex, it is likely because other treatments have failed. “Fluorouracil is not the first medicine doctors recommend for genital warts. Fluorouracil may be used at home after a doctor shows you how to apply it. Fluorouracil may be most useful for treating warts on the vulva, penis, and anal area and at the opening to the urethra (2).”

“Fluorouracil may initially remove warts, but studies have not completely evaluated its effectiveness (2).” In addition, the drug has a number of side effects. These include “Redness and swelling of normal skin, burning feeling where medicine is applied, increased sensitivity of skin to sunlight, itching, oozing, skin rash, soreness or tenderness of skin, scaling, and watery eyes (1).”

“There are no drugs approved against the HPV.” (See Pharmacology & Pharmacy, published in September 2013) (3). Gene-Eden-VIR is a natural antiviral proven to reduce HPV symptoms in a post-marketing clinical study that followed FDA guidelines.

A recent post marketing clinical study published in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs on August 12, 2013 showed that Gene-Eden-VIR is safe and effective (4). Additionally, up to 70% of those studied reported a decrease in HPV symptoms (4).

Each ingredient of Gene-Eden-VIR was chosen through a scientific approach. Scientists scanned thousands of scientific and medical papers published in various medical and scientific journals around the world to identify the safest, most effective natural ingredients that target the latent form of HPV (4).
