HIV and AIDS are diseases that still affect many in the U.S. and in our community.

Today is World AIDS Day.

A day meant to remember those who died, and to raise awareness. And support for those who have HIV or AIDS.

World AIDS Day was first held in 1988, making it the first day for global awareness of a medical condition.

More than 30 million people around the world are believed to currently have the virus…including more than 700 individuals in the state.

Here's a story to take you back to high school biology class.

You may recall that the "Y" chromosome is present in all males.  While a lot remains unknown about that gene, a recent study shows that it can be mimicked or replaced. The application of that knowledge could lead to advances in fertility treatments.

A team from the Institute for Biogenesis Research at the John A. Burns School of Medicine spent the last 2 years researching replacements for the Y chromosome.
