Home HIV test

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Groups including National Lesbian and Gay Health Association, National Association of People with AIDS and Americans for a Sound AIDS/HIV Policy write to FDA asking that the application covering Johnson & Johnson's home HIV test be withdrawn because J&J has engaged in "unlawful promotion" of the test. The groups also ask that FDA conduct a full investigation of the issue. As an example of "unlawful promotion," the group cites a demonstration of the test on a TV news show by former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop, a "hired consultant" for J&J. Recently, FDA told the White House that it is committed to an expedited review of the test ("The Tan Sheet" Oct. 10, p. 15)
