Nigerian professor claims to have found possible cure for HIV/AIDS

His name is Prof. Isaiah Ibeh and he is the Dean, School of Basic Medical Sciences, University of Benin. Prof Ibeh yesterday Tuesday January 8th announced the development of a new drug that can  cure HIV and AIDS.

He told the News Agency of Nigeria in Benin, that research on the project was started in 2010 and culminated in the development of “Deconcotion X (DX)–Liquid or Bioclean 11 for the cure of HIV and AIDS. He said the herbal drug had undergone “a series of successful tests.”

Prof Ibeh told NAN, “We are at the threshold of making history, in the sense that we seem to have with us something that will permanently take care of what over time seems to have defied all solutions. We are talking about the latest discovery of an oral drug made from plants extraction in Nigeria for the possible cure for the pandemic, HIV and AIDS virus.’’

“The existing retroviral drugs are intervention drugs for the management of AIDS but our new discovery is a possible cure. We have tried to look at the product first; its toxicological analysis and discovered that it has a large safety margin. This means that if animals or human beings are exposed to it, they will not suffer any serious harm at all from the exposure.

“It also helped us to know the quantity we can conveniently give to animals and will feel secure that nothing untoward will happen. We have also done the bacteriological analysis on it, after which we looked at its effect on the virus and the result was quite revealing and refreshing.’’

"The result showed an increase in the body weight of the individual administered with DX. The body weight was statistically significant when compared with the control group. This verification is necessary because it is what is used to measure whether infection is still there or not. So we need to know the siro-convention time. But preliminary results showed that of the five latest patients orally administered with the drugs, our findings is that up to seven months three of them were siro negative while two were still faintly positive.’

This sounds promising but the sample group of 5 patients is not statistically significant.
This should be progressed to clinical trials and hopefully it will be a viable drug.

Doc said...

Possible Cure?? Does it reduce viral load or it totally eliminates the virus?? How long would an HIV patient keep taking the drug to be totally cured? If the drug is discontinued would the viral load CD4 count increase and return back to previous levels?
A cure can only be confirmed if the drug leads to total eradication of the virus 1 year after last use of the drug. Please Prof confirm all this before you come out with your new herbal drug that seem to have beaten billion dollar research initiatives world over.

This guy needs all the encouragement and support. Please Nigerians, let's support our own, and possibly co-opt the assistance of foreign bodies to make this a huge success from our country; it'll be a record and do a lot of good to our image internationally. Whites will do same if it were them . This shall not be a repeat of the Abalaka case- who seemed to be ridiculed by even Nigerians themselves. Prof. Ibeh, you have our absolute support. Congrats (in advance).

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WORKING WITH HIM OR IS HE WORKING ALONE IN HIS 'WORLD CLASS' LAB IN BENIN OF ALL PLACES? THIS MAN MUST BE DRUNK. MAYBE HE IS FROM JONATHAN PART OF DELTA[IGBO DELTA]
HOW CAN A SAIN PERSON MAKE THIS KIND OF ANNOUNCEMENT. EVEN IF YOU HAVE DISCOVERED SOMETHING, IT IS NOT YOU THAT WILL ANNOUNCE IT. IT IS YOUR PEERS THAT WILL ANNOUNCE IT. YOU TAKE WHAT YOU HAVE DISCOVERED TO YOUR PEERS AND PROOF IT FIRST. WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE LIKE THIS IN NIGERIA BECAUSE NIGERIANS ARE SO GULLIBLE.
