Prevent Anal Cancer Study: A Research on Self-Swabbing and Novel Biomarkers

Presenter:
Christopher Ajala, MD, MPH
Clinical Research Coordinator III
Department of Psychiatry

Anal cancer is a rare disease caused by persistent human papillomavirus infection (HPV). Studies have shown that the annual incidence of anal cancer is highest in men who have sex with men (MSM) with HIV. However, there are no uniform anal cancer screening recommendations to identify persons at increased risk of anal cancer. Since men, in general, have poor compliance with preventive screening recommendations, it may be helpful to assess methods of screening, like selfswabbing, that could reduce barriers to screening protocols developed for men. Please RSVP to attend.
