Leukocyte interferon gel (1 x 106 units) was applied twice daily by a vaginal applicator to areas of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in 7 patients. A partial response was obtained in 3 patients and complete response in 2 patients. This suggests that leukocyte interferon gel can be used to treat CIN.
