Nigerian Scientists Say They Have Found Cure For HIV/AIDS

A research team at the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (MOUAU), Abia State led by Prof Maduike Ezeibe has been able to prove that Medicinal Synthetic Aluminium-magnesium Silicate (MSAMS), which it developed, can cure HIV/AIDS.



The result of the clinical trial of the anti-retroviral efficacy of MSAMS in male and female HIV/AIDS patients was published in the British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research .
It was also among the papers presented last Wednesday at the World Virology Conference 2016 held at Texas, U.S. Though Prof. Ezeibe could not attend the conference because of his inability to raise money for his flight tickets, the organisers insisted that he sent a video presentation, which was played and applauded at the conference. 


Speaking with journalists at the weekend on the lukewarm attitude of Nigeria’s health authorities to his medical breakthrough, the professor of Veterinary Medicine said that since 2014 when he was issued with the national patent right (Ref. No. NG/P/2012/639, 2014) no further step had been taken to commercialise it or get the international patent right by Nigeria.


“We Africans lack confidence in ourselves,” he lamented, adding that the medicine that he had discovered to have anti-retroviral properties is an old medicine which had been in use.

“The only science we did is that we discovered that it has charges – negative and positive and since HIV has positive charges, the MSAMS use its negative charges to attract and destroy HIV,” he said.


He said that HIV/AIDS had remained incurable because of the small size of the virus and immune deficiency it causes hence any anti-retroviral medicine that could effectively tackle the problem must be smaller (nano-particles).


According to him, particles of HIV could be as small as 110nm which was why they easily crossed physiological barriers to ‘hide’ in cells of the brain, bone marrow and testes, which existing antiretroviral medicines with bigger molecules could not reach.


Prof. Ezeibe explained: “HIV destroys lymphocytes (immune cells that clear infections from organs that are inaccessible to medicines. So, nothing was known that could terminate its infections (and) for that the infection was said to be in ‘sanctuary’.”

The professor reasoned that since Aluminum-magnesium Silicate (AMS) molecular platelets (nanoparticles) are smaller (0.96nm) than HIV, the nanoparticles cross physiological barriers to act on all body cells.

“We are using medicine that is so small that wherever HIV goes it can get there, catch it and destroy it,” he assured.

The efficacy of Ezeibe’s synthetic medicine is already generating interest among medical doctors and those that were involved in the clinical trial have already joined his research team after using the drug to treat their patients with astonishing results.


It is now expected that the university authorities in Nigeria would take up the advocacy to recognise and commercialise this important breakthrough in medical science by a Nigerian.

Wow! This is great news. We need to learn to have confidence in ourselves more.

An anonymous bv shared this yesterday. Great news indeed. I wish we can find cure to sickle cell anaemia or a cheaper prevention option since sickle cell is predominantly a west African problem.

Then cancer, all these diseases threatening humanity pls

Wow. I pray it is proven to be true. This would put us on the map forever. Nigerians are one of the most intelligent people in the world, just so sad we've had horrible leaders.

Not sure "Cure" for AIDS/HIV is the right thing to say. The synopsis of the paper that Prof Ezeibe presented is as below:

AIM: For an affordable therapy for Human immune-deficiency virus (HIV) infections, antiretroviral effects of a synthetic aluminum-magnesium silicate (AMS) were tested.
Materials and Methods: Plasma that tested positive to HIV and the AMS were mixed, on equal volume to weight basis, incubated one hour at room temperature and centrifuged for ten minutes at 3,000 revolutions per minute. These procedures were repeated on each supernatant. HIV titres of the two sets of supernatants and the titres in portions of the plasma, not incubated with the AMS were assessed by direct passive hemagglutination test.
Results: Mean HIV titres of the plasma increased from 4.00±1.60 to 14.00±2.00 when incubated with the AMS. Repeating the incubation, reduced mean HIV titres in plasma from 14.00±2.00 to 6.50±1.50 (P=0.024).

CONCLUSION: It was concluded that the AMS has antiretroviral effects and could be an inexpensive antiretroviral therapy for regular treatment to reduce high rate of HIV infection among low income groups.

Keywords :
Opposite electrical charges; human immune deficiency virus; aluminum-magnesium silicate (Nanoparticles).

Great news! Hoping our government will help Prof Ezeibe and propagate the cure properly. To even think he didn't have enough money to travel for the conference? No grants in this country.smh. Ministry of Health pls take this seriously! The world is watching. Otherwise some serious nation will take Prof from under your nose!

olaedo said...

Amen dear

You missed where they said clinical trial and astonishing result

I hope it doesn't end up like prof. Jeremiah Abalaka's case

Fab Mum said...

If this is a success, then Nigeria will be put on the map forever. Like we will really become Giants and not giant for mouth plus the funds it will bring I to the country

Hmmmmm, this is good news

Wow that's great news indeed. Hope it will be acknowledged though. Nigeria can kill people's dreams.

Has it been tested?
I hope it works

Kim Kardashian Aka portable queen of sdk blog said...

How did your whole family contact HIV?
Were they distributing among themselves?

Mrs.R SDK blog Official BFF said...

This is a great news and a welcome development!
But they should be very careful of the outsiders that will come to show interest or those big international pharmaceutical companies. They never wished for these diseases to have cure.
They have made some very expensive out of reached medicine only for those very rich and wealthy HIV/AIDS carriers.

I am so proud of these doctors.

I hope this is for real and it's not "shot" down. We should keep faith, there's surely light at the end of the tunnel.

Tayan Taylor said...

So the Nigeria government could not support him to go for the conference abi,if it is wedding or other frivolous activities they would arrange their big belly to go, foolish people

Knowing the proposed mechanism of action for a future HIV drug is a no brainer. Its clear that all is needed is to find out a drug particle that will be small enough to permeate the membranes and reach the diseased cell. For this research to state he is only just discovering this is a bit funny cos lots of therapeutic drugs have been formulated in the past that their molecules are small enough to permeate the membrane, but the catch is this: these small drug particles passes thru the membrane quiet alright but they end up destroying all the cells they see both HIV diseased cells and non HIV diseased cell due to their inability to differentiate them!
So you see the dilemma now, the drugs end up making them more sick due to apostosis (cell death) of healthy cells.
Researchers are no longer looking for just smaller molecules rather they are looking for smaller drug molecules with the ability to recognise just HIV virus and destroy it without destroying other surrounding cells.
Im not sure this Mg-Al-Si combination does that.

Sickle cell is actually PREVENTABLE & much more cheaper than managing it but infatuation and unawareness is just plunging families into this pain

I know some countries are making money off this virus! Yes , some of the medication is free but some charities are making money from it! There is a company in Canada, they already have the cure for HIV and some other viruses that are deadly but they come out and say they have it because USA has to stamp and approve.

There is a cure for sickle cell already via stem cell transplant. A friend of mine did it and he is doing fine.

Enlightening. I always thought the main challenge was how fast the virus replicates.
