FOCUS ON HEALTH - A panel of federal health advisers has endorsed the first drug shown to prevent HIV infection in healthy people.
This endorsement clears the way for a potentially landmark approval in the 30–year–old effort against the virus that causes AIDS.
In a series of votes, the FDA advisory panel recommended approval of the daily pill Truvada for healthy people who are at high risk of contracting HIV.
The FDA is not required to follow the panel's advice, though it usually does.
A final decision is expected by June 15.
Sunscreen confusion won't be over before summer after all.
The government is bowing to industry requests for more time to make clear how much protection their brands really offer against skin cancer.
The FDA ordered changes last summer but gave until this June to get revised bottles on the shelf.
But Friday, the FDA said it would give sunscreen makers another six months to make the changes.
Those include protecting against both ultraviolet A and B rays or carry a special warning label.
They also couldn't claim to be waterproof or sweatproof.
