Study Summary

This trial is comparing two different ways to prevent anal cancer in patients with HIV and high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSIL). The first way is called topical or ablative treatment. The second way is called active monitoring. The trial is almost finished, and the data shows that the first way is better at preventing anal cancer. So all the people in the trial are being offered the first way of treatment.

Eligible Conditions
  • Human Papillomavirus Infections
  • HSIL, High Grade Squamous Intraepithelial Lesions
  • Cancer, Anal
  • HIV

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
