    FDA Approves Triple Combination HIV Drug

    The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved a pill to treat HIV infection that combines three widely used antiretroviral drugs into one pill.
    The drug will be sold under the brand-name Atripla in the U.S. by Bristol-Myers Squibb Co. (BMY) and Gilead Sciences Inc. (GILD). Merck & Co. (MRK) will be involved in marketing the drug in countries outside the U.S.

    Is it an addicted-to-life drug or something more groundbreaking?

    See, that's all very well. Obviously no one wants to get AIDS, but some things are too hard to control, just through 'prevention', on a macroscopic scale. That is, at an individual level, it is right to advocate restraint and prevention, but when dealing with whole populations, it is not feasable.

    PS- Sorry for diggin up olds ghosts :p
