(AURN) -- A John Hopkins School of Medicine researcher dispels a troubling myth about HIV transmission; that as the FDA has approved the first in-home HIV testing kit. The kit, OraQuick allows people to test using a mouth swab in the privacy of their own homes, and gives results in 30 minutes. AURN's Kim Lampkins and Cynthia Levy filed a team report.
