U.S. Panel Will Consider Home AIDS Test
May 15, 2012
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA)'s Blood Products Advisory Committee meets today to consider whether to recommend approval of an over-the-counter HIV test. Many public health experts believe at-home HIV testing could help reduce the number of Americans who are infected but unaware. An estimated 50 percent to 70 percent of the more than 50,000 new U.S. HIV cases annually are transmitted by these individuals.
