Effects of hypnotic, placebo, and salicylic acid treatments on wart regression.

Author information

Department of Psychology, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.


Subjects with warts on their hands and/or feet were randomly assigned to a hypnotic suggestion, topical salicylic acid, placebo, or no treatment control condition. Subjects in the three treated groups developed equivalent expectations of treatment success. Nevertheless, at the six-week follow-up interval only the hypnotic subjects had lost significantly more warts than the no treatment controls. Theoretical implications are discussed.
