Volcanic lava flow spurs more evacuations on Hawaii's Big Island

Volcanic lava flow spurs more evacuations on Hawaii's Big IslandBy Jolyn Rosa HONOLULU (Reuters) – Molten rock from several lava-spewing fissures opened by Kilauea Volcano crept toward clusters of homes and vacation rentals on the eastern tip of Hawaii’s Big Island on Wednesday, prompting authorities to usher residents out of the area as a precaution. Evacuation of the Vacationland development and adjacent Kapoho community, rebuilt after a destructive eruption of Kilauea in 1960, came on the 28th day of what geologists rank as one of the biggest upheavals in a century from one of the world’s most active volcanoes. The Hawaii County Civil Defense agency issued the advisory as lava flows picked up speed late on Tuesday and early on Wednesday and threatened to cut off a key traffic route into the seaside area on the far eastern flank of the volcano.

Relapse of ‘cured’ HIV patients spurs AIDS science on

By Kate Kelland, Health and Science Correspondent LONDON (Reuters) – Scientists seeking a cure for AIDS say they have been inspired, not crushed, by a major setback in which two HIV positive patients believed to have been cured found the virus re-invading their bodies once more. True, the news hit hard last month that the so-called “Boston patients” – two men who received bone marrow transplants that appeared to rid them completely of the AIDS-causing virus – had relapsed and gone back onto antiretroviral treatment. “It’s a setback for the patients, of course, but an advance for the field because the field has now gained a lot more knowledge,” said Steven Deeks, a professor and HIV expert at the University of California, San Francisco. He and other experts say the primary practical message is that current tests designed to detect even very low levels of HIV present in the body are simply not sensitive enough.
