A Potential HIV ‘Cure’ Discovered By A Nigerian Scientists.
A group of Nigerian scientists have found what could be a novel treatment for Human immune-deficiency virus (HIV) infections infection that may slash current the cost of treatment.

The team of scientists, including graduate students and researchers from the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, Abia state, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, and the Federal Medical Centre, Umuahia, Nigeria have been able to show that synthetic Aluminum-magnesium silicate (AMS) has antiretroviral effects that could lay a perfect track for affordable and effective therapy for HIV.

Results of their work titled ‘Assessment of Antiretroviral Effects of a Synthetic Aluminum-magnesium Silicate’ published in the British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research (BJMMR 4(8: 1672-1679, 2014) and featured on SCIENCEDOMAIN international (, shows a significant reduction in the titres of the virus when HIV positive plasma was incubated with AMS.

The lead scientist, Professor Maduike Ezeibe, who is Head, Department of Veterinary Medicine at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike said this could provide an ultimate cure for the virus that has defiled so many scientific efforts to curtail it in the past.

Ezeibe reacted aluminium silicate with magnesium silicate to obtain the synthetic aluminum-magnesium silicate devoid of impurities.

Giving further details on AMS in a response to our correspondent, he said, “Molecules of aluminum–magnesium silicate have platelets that possess both negative and positive electrical charges on their surfaces and their edges. HIV on the other hand is negatively charged. So the simple scientific understanding that opposite charges attracts ensures that the HIV virus binds to the AMS and is discharged from the body alongside.”

An existing medicine

“AMS is normally used as a stabilizing medicine that does not really have toxic effect on the patient, so it makes it a suitable agent for mopping up HIV virus from the body,” he said.

Writing in the journal, Ezeibe stated that “possession of both negative and positive electrical charges makes AMS a broad spectrum antiviral medicine.”

“AMS, if used in combination of selected antibiotics and immune stimulant may achieve a ‘cure’ for HIV,” the lead researcher of the work said.

On this note he wrote that, “When a significant number of particles of invading viruses adsorb onto its (AMS) molecules instead of onto their hosts cells, viral infections are terminated,” Ezeibe noted.

“Platelets of AMS molecules are also, only 0.96 nm thick. So, it is made of Nanoparticles, which makes it possible for them to pass physiological barriers. Therefore, AMS may get to and adsorb to HIV particles in any organ of infected persons.”

The author noted also that “Adsorbing out HIV means that millions of new virions usually released from each infected cell would be inhibited from establishing new infections in more cells,” adding, “Thus, HIV would be prevented from overwhelming the body immune systems and the Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS) stage may be prevented.

When the AIDS stage is prevented, the immune systems have advantage over HIV infections and clear viral particles that escape the AMS molecules,” in which case Ezeibe said a cure could be achieved.

God bless Dr. JATTO for his marvelous work in my life, I was diagnosed of HIV since 2013 and I was taking my medications, I wasn't satisfied i needed to get the HIV out of my system, I searched about some possible cure for HIV i saw a comment about Dr. JATTO, how he cured HERPES,DIABETES,STROKE,EX_LOVER BACK and CANCER with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health, he sent me the medicine through DHL COURIER SPEED POST. I took the medicine as prescribed by him (DR. JATTO) and 4 days later i was cured from HIV.
Dr. JATTO truly you are great.
Do you need his help also? Why don’t you contact him through.
