We read with interest the article by Dr Naik which reviews novel targets and therapies for keloids (1). Dr Naik discussed the use of botulinum toxin A, intralesional verapamil and the potential use of novel miRNA modulation.We believe that the author might have overlooked the use of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and the use of laser assisted drug delivery as emerging therapies.
