AIDS virus blood samples stolen from a Van Nuys testing firm over the weekend had been left outside the laboratory for a courier and were unsecured because a locking device was not working, Los Angeles police said Tuesday. Police said the door at ICS Home Health Services, in the 14900 block of Oxnard Street, was equipped with a device that could lock down the cooler holding the blood, which was from patients who tested positive for AIDS. The cooler could be released by a courier with a key.

Thank you for "13 Random Victims of an Indiscriminate Killer--AIDS," which brought the statistics of this insidious disease to a personal level. Philip Mandelker was a friend of mine. His sense of humor, deep caring and desire for his friends to have and be the best were only a few of the characteristics that made him so special. His death has left a great void in my life, as well as those of his other friends and associates. Philip was always there to help others. In this spirit, as a way of perpetuating his memory by doing something to fight the disease that took his life, the Philip Mandelker AIDS Prevention Center was established in the Edelman Health Care Center in Hollywood.

From California to the East Coast, these testing sites have experienced an increase of up to 150% since Jan. 1 in the number of people seeking testing.
