But there's been a great deal of controversy over whether women in their FORTIES should have mammography screening.

It's the most significant sign to date that the AIDS drugs known as protease inhibitors may actually eliminate the AIDS virus in human tissue.

At a conference last night, Ho announced that ALL the samples had NO detectable levels of HIV in lymph tissue from the large intestine and semen.
