Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms
An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.
An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.
Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

HIV infected subjects with known subclinical atherosclerosis:
This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.
Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.
Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.
Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.
Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
The sponsor is the organization or person who oversees the clinical study and is responsible for analyzing the study data.

Detailed Description: Patients with HIV have been shown to have increased atherosclerotic risk compared to age-matched controls, and this risk is thought to be related to increased systemic immune activation. Specifically, systemic immune activation may contribute to destabilizing coronary atherosclerotic plaque, leading to plaque rupture and myocardial infarction. This study is intended to measure arterial uptake of the macrophage specific marker 99mTc-Tilmanocept using single photon emission computed tomography, applied initially to a group of HIV-infected patients with known subclinical coronary atherosclerosis on CCTA. Moreover, traditional markers of CVD risk and inflammatory markers will be assessed in relation to CV imaging outcomes. Positive findings in the index HIV group with known subclinical atherosclerosis will prompt subsequent study of three comparison groups, as above.
: HIV infected with known subclinical atherosclerosis
: HIV infected without known subclinical atherosclerosis
: Non-HIV infected with known subclinical atherosclerosis
: Non-HIV infected without known subclinical atherosclerosis
Other: - Arterial Imaging
