FDA Approves New HIV Pill

Filed under: HealthMedicine

Hiv pill approved

A new once-a-day pill that prevents the HIV virus from reproducing was approved on on Friday by the FDA.

Edurant is is designed for use as part of a drug cocktail that reduce levels of HIV in the blood, but approved only for those who have not been treated with other medications for the virus.

Dr. Edward Cox, FDA's director of antimicrobial products, said:

"Patients may respond differently to various HIV drugs or experience varied side effects. FDA's approval of Edurant provides an additional treatment option for patients who are starting HIV therapy."

The medication sounds like an awesome advancement in the fight against AIDS! The side effects were very moderate with depression, trouble sleeping, headache and rash being the most common.

Home Abortions Being Fought Over In Court

Home Abortions Being Fought Over In Court

The British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) is currently fighting a law that requires women to take early-stage abortion pills at registered clinics — a law that contrasts with the common practice of countries such as France, Sweden, and the US, who allow women to take the pills at home.

A scientific study conducted five years ago found that 98% of women who took the pills at home were satisfied with the experience.

The current law requires women to visit the clinic twice and receive two different medications that induce the abortion.

What do U think? Should UK women be able to perform early-stage abortions at home?

My Dog Is On The Pill

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueDog

This sounds kind of nuts but it is true!

A contraceptive pill for dogs has been created. This pill is called Chem Spay, its creators say three chewable tablets will sterilize a female dog.

This has been done in hopes to reduce the amount of dogs that are euthanized each year. Since the amount of dogs without homes is overwhelming, the creators of this pill are thinking that if less pups are born, there will be less homeless doggies.

Check out the video above to see the report on this new pill.
