Health Care Reform Battle Tops Health News for 2011

  • The trend among a minority of U.S. parents to forgo vaccinating their children against common infectious diseases continued. This summer, a survey from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that about 5 percent of parents had declined some vaccines for their kids, even though an exhaustive Institute of Medicine report released in August found pediatric shots to be safe.
  • There was very good news in the fight against HIV/AIDS: research published in 2011 helped confirm that treating infected individuals with powerful drugs could dramatically cut transmission rates to partners. At the same time, advances in gene therapy and other means of beating back HIV to undetectable levels had some experts cautiously expressing hopes for a cure.
  • News from the battle against the leading cause of deaths due to cancer, lung cancer, was also encouraging. In June, updated data from a U.S. National Cancer Institute trial suggested that routine CT chest scans might cut the death rate by 20 percent for former or current smokers. And in September, the CDC announced another milestone: the first-ever decline in deaths among women from the disease, as fewer women decide to smoke.
