One hundred and fifty patients took part in our research, 100 of whom had plantar warts, 20 of whom had plane warts, and 30 of whom had common warts. All patients received the following therapeutic scheme: one 40-mg tablet of ketrax morning and evening for the first three days of the week for four weeks, two weeks with no treatment, follwed by two weeks of the initial therapeutic scheme. As a result, 70 percent of those with plantar warts became free of the lesions, whereas the treatment had no effect on the common warts or plane warts. It was concluded that Levamisol (ketrax) in a dose of 40 mg twice daily on the first three days of the week for four weeks, plus for two weeks after a two week break, is an effective treatment for plantar warts.
