Infectious Disease Dysplasia Clinic

Dr. Lori Panther is the clinical director of the Infectious Diseases Dysplasia Clinic (IDDC), which provides screening and preventive care of patients with HPV-related anogenital disease.  The IDDC was created in 1999 and provides multispecialty care in the screening and treatment of high-grade anal dysplasia. Next to UCSF, the IDDC longitudinally follows the second-largest population of patients in the U.S. with HPV-related anogenital disease.  Epidemiological and clinical data generated from this clinic are kept in a relational database, which is the foundation of several epidemiologic investigations into the risk factors for pre-malignant and malignant HPV-related anogenital disease.  In addition, one therapeutic trial of an agent to reverse the progression of high-grade anal dysplasia is underway, one NIH/AMC-sponsored trial of infrared therapy of high-grade internal anal dysplasia has been completed, and several other therapeutic interventional trials are under consideration.
