Title of the project

The impact of HIV status on staging, treatment and outcomes in locally advanced cervical carcinoma.

Project Description

The ideal staging techniques and treatment regimens for HIV-infected cervical carcinoma patients have yet to be established. Determination of best standard care is needed to ensure effective control of cervical carcinoma in this vulnerable and growing cohort of patients. Two concurrent studies will be performed. Study 1 is a retrospective data analysis on an existing cohort. Study 2 is a retrospective/prospective descriptive analysis of imaging findings. Two previous studies related to the existing cohort have been published. Together these 4 studies will be submitted for a PhD in Radiotherapy and Isotopes at Stellenbosch University.
