actinic keratosis

The most widely used topical agents for the field-based treatment of multiple actinic keratoses are 5-fluorouracil and imiquimod. Their comparative effectiveness was assessed in a real-world community-based cohort study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology.

The study compared the effectiveness of 5-fluorouracil and imiquimod in reducing risk for subsequent actinic keratoses. It identified 5,700 adults in the US who had an actinic keratosis diagnosed in 2007 and who subsequently filled a prescription for 5-fluorouracil or imiquimod. Researchers followed subjects for subsequent actinic keratoses and estimated the two-year (short-term) and five-year (long-term) differences in cumulative risk.
