An antibody and toxin mix has successfully detected and killed HIV-infected cells lurking in the organs and bone marrow of mice that were altered to have a human immune system. The results, reported Thursday in the online journal PLOS Pathogens, offer conceptual proof that a reservoir of HIV-infected cells in organs can sought out and destroyed, a scenario that would potentially end the stalemate between the virus and antiretroviral drug therapies. The altered mice, developed about eight years ago, can be infected by the human immunodeficiency virus in an identical manner to humans; they exhibit the same viremia and respond the same way to current antiretroviral drug therapy, but do not come down with AIDS, according to the study.

Victor A. Garcia volunteered for a war he thought was wrong, in an Army commanded by a president he didn't support. He read books by leftist critic Noam Chomsky, and one of his few blog entries on his MySpace.com page wonders, "What more evidence do we need?" that the war was a mistake. But he joined the Army anyway, looking for college tuition assistance and, perhaps, some discipline.

The New York Mets broke up their 1986 World Series champions a little more Friday when they dealt shortstop Rafael Santana to the New York Yankees, a few hours after trading away relief pitcher Jesse Orosco.
