The incidence of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) is very high. Despite the effectiveness of surgical treatments, the development of effective biologic therapies for BCC is important.1 Beutner et al2 performed a randomized, double-blind pilot trial evaluating the safety and efficacy of imiquimod 5% cream vs vehicle in the treatment of BCCs.
