A Comparison of Two Anti-HIV Treatment Plans

The purpose of this study is to compare 2 treatment plans to try to increase the effects of anti-HIV drugs in patients who are resistant to the drug effects.

The Accuracy of CHOLINE PET CT in the Diagnosis of Urological Malignancies

PET CT is one of the imaging tools that are used for staging of urological malignancies. C11 Choline is a novel isotope with the advantage of its minimal secretion in the urine. This advantage makes it a potentially better metabolic marker then others such as FDG. Preliminary studies showed ~95% sensitivity in the diagnosis of TCC. Our Goal is to continue the evaluation of this method as a diagnostic and follow up tool in different urological malignancies.
