From The Hill:
Reimportation makes gains
In a move that could have wide-ranging ramifications in this year’s healthcare debate, Sen. Judd Gregg (R-N.H.) has begun drafting his own bill to allow for the reimportation of prescription drugs from other countries. The bill, which Gregg plans to unveil in the next few weeks, will be a narrower alternative to a version that passed the House last year.

From CBC.ca:
Canadian team to test if vaccine controls HIV infection
Canadian researchers will test a therapeutic HIV vaccine in the hopes of reducing the need for drug cocktails and their side effects.

Doctors will recruit HIV patients in Ottawa and in Montreal to test the potential vaccine. The therapeutic vaccine isn't meant to prevent HIV but to help people who are already infected.
