This electron microscope image made available by the U.S. National Institutes of Health shows a human T cell, in blue, under attack by HIV, in yellow, the virus that causes AIDS. The virus specifically targets T cells, which play a critical role in the body's immune response against invaders like bacteria and viruses. Colors were added by the source. On Thursday, March 6, 2019, researchers reported that monthly shots of HIV drugs worked as well as daily pills to control the virus that causes AIDS in two large international tests.

A scientist at the NY Genome Center in New York demonstrates equipment used in single-cell RNA analysis on Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2018. Until recently, trying to study key traits of cells from people and other animals often meant analyzing bulk samples of tissue, producing an average of results from many cell types. But scientists have developed techniques that let them directly study the DNA codes, and its chemical cousin RNA, the activity of genes and other traits of individual cells. (AP Photo/Malcolm Ritter)

FILE - In this Feb. 7, 2018 file photo, a nurse prepares a flu shot at the Salvation Army in Atlanta. Health officials say further research has not found a miscarriage risk for women who get annual flu shots. Two years ago, a puzzling study found women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots. Experts said other factors may have caused the miscarriages, but urged more research. But this week, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention officials said a larger and more rigorous study found no link over three subsequent flu seasons. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)

FILE - This Feb. 2, 2015, file photo, depicts a part of a U.S. $100 bill. A new government report estimates that government will be paying nearly half the nation’s health care tab within 10 years. That’s even without “Medicare-for-all,” the government-run plan for all Americans that some Democratic presidential contenders are calling for. Driving the increase is traditional Medicare, experiencing a surge in enrollment as aging baby boomers shift out of private coverage. The report comes from nonpartisan experts with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. (AP Photo/Jon Elswick, File)

FILE - In this Oct. 4, 2005 file photo, a man smokes a cigarette in Euharlee, Ga. According to a report by the American Cancer Society released on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2019, cancer deaths have dropped for all Americans, but the rates have fallen faster in blacks than whites. Experts say the main reason is that smoking rates fell more dramatically in blacks in the past 40 years, and that’s paying off in fewer deaths now. (AP Photo/Ric Feld)
