Technical Information - Wartec
The Podophyllotoxin is a plant extract that has antimitotic properties, is used to treat genital and perianal warts. It is the main active ingredient of podophyllin resin obtained from Podophyllum emodi. The podophyllotoxin presents local adverse reactions, with low systemic absorption, unlike podophyllin, which has a high toxic potential. Mechanism of Action: Podophyllotoxin is an antimitotic that inhibits the metaphase in dividing cells, binding to at least one site of tubulin. The binding prevents the polymerization of tubulin to form microtubules, which results in the suspension of mitosis.
