Crash development of AIDS test nears goal


, : Crash development of AIDS test nears goal. Science 225(4667): 1128, 1130-1

Impending development of a blood test for AIDS has paved the way for an epidemiological study by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Blood samples from 200,000 presumably healthy donors will soon be drawn and stored, to be screened when the test becomes available. Donors and recipients of blood which tests AIDS-positive will then be followed to see if AIDS develops. The study raises ethical issues in the areas of obtaining informed consent from donors and notifying donors and recipients of test results. The plan now is to obtain consent from donors and notify them of positive test results, and to decide later about notifying recipients.

The trade-up hypothesis outlines a behavioural strategy that females could use to maximize the genetic benefits to their offspring. The hypothesis proposes that females should be more willing to accept a mate when the new male encountered is a sup...

Therefore, it is essential and in fact mandatory to reduce the radiation dose in diagnostic radiology as far as possible. This is a...
