On Monday, a group of researchers from Netherlands published a new study in the Canadian Medical Association Journal, revealing that patients, who have been diagnosed with warts since a duration of more than six months, might have less chances of survival, than those diagnosed earlier.
Moreover, the study showed that Cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen is considered as the most practical and effective treatment for common cases of warts. Cryotherapy offers the patients an 83% chance of full recovery.
The study dealt with data from 240 participants from Netherlands, with their ages ranging between 4 and 79 years old.
Dr. Sjoerd Bruggink, a Professor at the Leiden University Medical Centre and the co-author stated that despite the fact that 90% of the people get warts, it is one of the fields where the information is not really abundant. Therefore, he also said that he is pleased to participate in such a study.
He said, "We did another study in which, in primary schools, one-third of children had warts somewhere. So it's a very common problem. They ... can also irritate on the feet or on hands. So it's harmless, but annoying".
He added that these kind of studies do not require a large amount of money.
