New HIV Test May Improve Point-of-Care Medicine in Remote Regions

JAMA. 2015;313(24):2415. doi:10.1001/jama.2015.6100

In a project partially funded by grants from the National Institutes of Health, scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine developed new methods for quickly and easily testing for HIV, CD4+ T lymphocytes, and common bacteria (Shafiee H et al. Sci Rep. doi:10.1038/srep08719 [published online March 6, 2015]). The simple tests, which use new paper and flexible polymer substrates with special sensing devices, may improve point-of-care medical treatment in remote areas in developing countries.
