Imiquimod for superficial basal cell carcinoma


Although the mechanism of action of imiquimod is unknown, an open-label study suggests that the drug may act by increasing the filtration of lymphocytes, dendritic cells, and macrophages into the tumor lesion. Imiquimod was approved on July 14, 2004, for an expanded indication to include the treatment of biopsy-confirmed, primary superficial basal cell carcinoma (sBCC) in immunocompetent adults.
