According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 1.2 million persons were living with HIV infection in the United States at the end of 2010. Of those, 20% had undiagnosed HIV infections.[3] Highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) and viral load tests that determine the amount of circulating HIV have contributed to a profound increase in life expectancy for people living with HIV.[4]
Rx for health: Engineers design pill that signals it has been swallowed
  GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Call them tattletale pills. Seeking a way to confirm that patients have taken their medication, University of Florida engineering researchers have added a tiny microchip and digestible antenna to a standard pill capsule. The prototype is intended to pave the way for mass-produced pills that, when ingested, automatically alert doctors, loved ones or scientists working with patients in clinical drug trials. “It is a way to monitor whether your patient is taking their medication in a timely manner,” said Rizwan Bashirullah, UF assistant professor in electrical and computer engineering.

Smoking: It’s Killing Us
  Smoking harms just about every body part—from heart and lungs to bladder and blood vessels. What’s new is that smoking is more of a health hazard than we thought. Two new, NIH-funded reports make the persuasive, and alarming, case—on average, smoking takes an entire decade off of your life! But smokers take note: there are tremendous benefits from quitting, regardless of your age. In the first report [1], the authors examined data from about 220,000 adult smokers who were followed for roughly 7 years. They showed that people who currently smoke are about three times more likely to die prematurely compared to “never-smokers.” Adults who quit smoking at ages 30, 40, and 50 gained 10, 9, and 6 years of life, respectively, compared with those who continued to light up.
