CTC-96, a cobalt containing complex, was tested as a putative topical therapeutic agent for the treatment of papillomavirus-induced tumors in our cottontail rabbit papillomavirus (CRPV)-rabbit model system. Following experimental infection of domestic rabbits with CRPV, CTC-96 was applied to infection sites twice daily, 5 days a week for a total of 8 weeks. Two levels of concentrations of aqueous CTC-96 were compared to placebo control-treated animals. With increasing dose of CTC-96 we observed tumors earlier, larger, and more often across eight infected sites on each animal.
