A University Don, Prof. Madubuike Ezeibe claims to have invented a drug to treat the HIV/AIDS scourge.

Prof Ezeibe is a professor of Veterinary Medicine, Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike (MOUAU)

He has called on the Federal Government to carry out clinical trials on his Aluminium Magnesium Sillicate (AMS) drug.

These trials or tests are designed and employed by researchers to ascertain how effective a treatment procedure, drug, or device is for humans.

It also aims at identifying what treatment  would be best suited for certain groups of people.

Prof Ezeibe has presented a paper on the potential of the drug as both antiviral and raw material.

This was at a world conference on Ethnopharmacology in Chicago, United States, on May 2, 2016.

Since presenting the paper, its findings have not been disputed by any individual or body the Prof said.

He is convinced that this is proof enough for the Government to  take the drug to trial.

“I therefore appeal to the Federal government to institute an inter-ministerial committee to carry out clinical trial of the drug in six centers across the country without further delay.

“The committee should comprise Federal Ministries of Health, Education, Environment as well as Science and Technology, with at least 1000 sample patients from each state of the federation.

“Some of the findings of the research include that silicates have molecules that are 0.96 nano-meter in size while HIV has molecules as big as 110 nano-meter.

“The particles of AMS are positively and negatively charged, while HIV-infected cells are positively charged.

“The AMS are immune stimulants; one can use simple sugar (glucose) to transport charged molecules across the mucus membrane to the blood.

“Glucose helps to transport the drug to any part of the body, including ‘the sanctuary’, where other drugs cannot reach to attack the HIV-infected cells.

“So, if these findings are true and nobody has challenged the claims of the research, let the Federal Government set up an inter-ministerial committee to conduct clinical trial of the medicine,’’ he said.

Over the years there have been numerous claims from across Nigeria and even abroad by people who said they could cure AIDS.

Most of these claims have either been hoaxes, with the medical world still waiting for a breakthrough.

If Prof Ezeibe’s  claims are true, it would be a welcomed development.
