FDA Working to Lessen Patient Impact from Drug Shortages
  In 2010, there were 178 drug shortages reported to FDA, a record high. This increase has not escaped the agency’s attention. “There has been an immense amount of concern in the health care community about drug shortages, especially given the rising number of shortages in critical areas of medicine,” said Valerie Jensen, associate director, Drug Shortage Program, at FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. “In 2011, FDA has continued to see an increasing number of shortages, especially those involving older, sterile injectable drugs.”
Few HIV- Positive People Can Control The Disease Progression without Antiretrovirals
  Results also showed that among slow HIV progressors, people whose HIV progresses to AIDS but more slowly than usual, those with lower amounts of HIV in the blood were more likely to show minimal immune system loss over time. In addition, in most cases, controllers and non-progressors did eventually progress to AIDS. “Studying these patients could form the basis for the design of novel strategies to prevent immune deterioration in HIV-infected individuals,” said Dr. Nesrina Imami, a medical statistician in Immunology at Imperial College, London and senior author of the study, in correspondence with The AIDS Beacon. She added that understanding how the immune systems in these individuals control HIV could lead to therapeutic options that target the virus.

For New HIV Test, There’s No Place Like Home Detecting HIV-1 and HIV-2
  The Bethlehem, PA, developer of a CLIA-waived HIV test used in doctors’ offices since 2004 reasons it can reduce that last number significantly—and seize a market it says exceeds $500 million—through its new, in-home version of the test, announced earlier this month. The new OraQuick in-home HIV test will start sales in October at the company’s website and 30,000 stores, including Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid. OraSure Technologies says OraQuick can detect antibodies to both HIV-1 and HIV-2 in oral mucosal transudate with an oral swab, with results in about 20 minutes. It’s the first rapid diagnostic test for an infectious disease to be approved by FDA for over-the-counter sale. OTC test could decrease transmission by increasing diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
