in today's "healthforher" key developments this week in the fight against hiv. an advisory panel that works with the fda has preapproved an in-home oral hiv test. it's called oraquick. if approved by the fda this test would be available to consumers over the counter. the doctor is a physician at premiere care for women in atlanta. doctor, good to see you. pretty extraordinary. why such an incredible breakthrough this would get pre-approval? not a green light from the fda, but close? >> it is. the advisory committee recommended the fda approve this test. why this is exciting is about 20%, or almost a quarter million
2:19 pm
people, 1.2 million people in the u.s., who have hiv don't know they have it, and by not knowing, that's how we think most new cases of hiv are being spread. so being able to get tested in the privacy of your own home is hopefully going to increase testing and that's awesome. >> how does it work? >> a simple test. the same test used in doctors offices and hospitals since 2002. it's very accurate. you take this thing and swab it on the inside of your upper gum, inside of your lower gum. place it in this solution. just like a pregnancy test, two lines for positive, one for negative in about 20 minutes. it's very fast, very accurate and very easy. >> you already said a lot of doctors feel its accurate just like the test you would take, or blood test or even saliva test you take at your doctor's office, however, you know, a lot of folks might be reluctant to take the next step. while they may be reluctant to go into a doctor's office, they can do this at home, but then it's incumbent upon you if you get a
2:20 pm
positive test to take it to the next level. you do have to reach out for assistance? >> definitely. if you get a positive test, there's a 24-hour hot line, counselors can talk to you. for sure, you need to go to your health care provider for a confirmatory test. if you diagnose it early, the odds of survival are much greater. it's in your best interests and take precaution of decreasing the risk of transferring it to others. >> when you get the kit, if indeed it hits the market, do it dos it more than once? what if that initial positive or negative is not right? >> absolutely correct. a really important point. there's a window that's known there when you get exposed to hiv. someone got exposed yesterday. you're correct. their test might be negative today but can be positive within three to six months. it's very important if you think you could be exposed to repeat the test at timely intervals.
2:21 pm
the cdc does recommend that adults 13 to 464 g64 get a test routinely. knowing when to get tested is going to be key. >> once you take this test, counseling seems like it really ought to be pretty imperative. to hear you tested positive, even in the comfort of your own home is a tough pill to swallow. >> counselling is key. the company has a hot line. community agencies with counseling available. definitely, if you get a positive test result, the thing to do, find out what is your next step, which will be see your health care provider for a confirmatory test and get started and treatment early, because that's the key to survival. >> when might this be on the market or available? >> good question. the fda usually takes advisory committee's advice. should get approval. the cost anywhere around $60. we talked to the company and got information from them. they're excited about this obviously. they think it is going to help a lot of people.
2:22 pm
i did homework too. you can walk into any lab test place and get a blood draw for about $49. the test is comparably priced and available at retail pharmacies. >> the difference, some feel more comfortable doing it at home as opposed to going to a doctor's office. >> the idea, encourage more people to get tested because that's how we're going to stop the spread of hiv. >> dr. reddy, thanks. appreciate it. and space may be the final frontier, but getting there can be rather tricky. why the dawn of a new era of commercial space flight won't be today.
