-- Following a large number of false-positive results, New York City health officials have suspended the use of oral HIV test OraQuick in the city. Manufactured by Orasure Technologies Inc, the test which screens saliva and blood samples for antibodies to both HIV-1 and HIV-2 has been halted at its 10 sexually transmitted disease  walk-in clinics [...] the CDC is considering publishing an alert for health officials in its weekly report.
