A-101 topical solution
A proprietary topical formulation consisting of a high-concentration of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), with potential keratolytic activity. Upon administration of the A-101 topical solution to an affected area of skin, the hydrogen peroxide penetrates into the cells, increases oxygen content, produces reactive oxygen species (ROS), causes oxidative stress and induces apoptosis through oxidative damage. This may clear the affected skin cells and remove common warts (verruca vulgaris) or seborrheic keratosis (SK). Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
