Anal Cancer Prevention in HIV Patients

Dr. Juan de la Ossa is conducting a study comparing topical or ablative treatment with active monitoring in preventing anal cancer in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL). Anal HSIL is tissue in the anal canal that has been damaged by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) and is at risk for turning into anal cancer. It is not yet known if treating HSIL is more effective than active monitoring in preventing patients from developing anal cancer. Learn more.

Cognitive Impairment / Dementia

Dr. Braden Nago is conducting a study assessing how the results of an amyloid PET scan may impact treatment decisions. To be eligible patients must have mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia of uncertain cause and be a Medicare beneficiary, 65 years of age or older. Enrolled patients will have one amyloid PET scan followed by one visit with Dr. Nago to discuss the results of the scan and future treatment. Medicare has agreed to cover the cost of the scan for this study. The scan is FDA approved and not considered investigational. Learn more.
