Clinical trials:

Small studies have shown that garlic exerts antimicrobial activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Topical and dietary garlic traditionally has been used in the treatment of infections—particularly digestive, respiratory, and derma-tologic infections—ranging from diarrhea and vaginitis to colds and warts, but few good clinical studies support this use.
