The Food and Drug Administration advisory panel recommended approval of the daily pill Truvada for healthy people
This is the  first drug shown to prevent HIV infection in healthy people

Studies have shown that people who take the medicine, Truvada, every day have a greatly reduced risk of infection.

After 30 years first time such pill will be in market.

The FDA is not required to follow the panel's advice, normally advice is accepted.
A final decision is expected by June 15.
