Artesunate in Treating Patients with High-Grade Anal Intraepithelial Neoplasia
This phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of artesunate in treating patients with high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia. Anal intraepithelial neoplasia are precancerous cells that may or may not become a cancer in the future. Most of the changes that lead to cancer are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). Artesunate may kill cells infected with HPV.
