Professor of Virology, Maduike Ezeibe of the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, MOUAU, who once claimed to have discovered therapy for the cure of HIV/AIDS, said that his therapy has the potency to cure the dreaded coronavirus ravaging China and some Asian countries.
Ezeibe who is the Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine, MOUAU, made the claims Thursday in a statement, adding that the therapy can also cure Lassa fever.
The professor of Virology who gave the chemical equation of the therapy as (AI4(SiO4)3+3Mg2SiO4-2AI2Mg3(SiO4)3) said: “it’s a mechanism for curing Covid -19 and Lassa fever”.
On how the therapy works, Professor Ezeibe explained that “electrostatic attraction would make electrically charged medicines mop pathogens which have opposite charges, is a known scientific fact and that viruses and abnormal (infected /tumour) cells are electrically charged is now known.
” Covid-19 virus and Lassa fever virus (DNA viruses) are negatively charged. Small sizes of viruses enable them to infect cells, inaccessible to big molecules. So, existing antiviral medicines need immunity to complement their effects but some viruses cause immune deficiency.
As a silicate, AMS also normalises immunity and as a stabilizing agent, it enhances the efficacy of antimicrobials to achieve effective treatment secondary infections.
“Effective treatment of secondary infections would cure any viral /abnormal cell diseases including Covid -19 and Lassa fever “, the statement read.
Also, Professor Ezeibe challenged countries who are being ravaged by coronavirus to come and take his therapy for clinical trial on their patients.
He expressed confidence that the therapy which had already proved reliable in the treatment of HIV/AIDS would make coronavirus a thing of the past.
Asked about the cost of treatment, Professor Ezeibe said “cost is not an issue for now “, maintaining that what is of the moment is to bring cure to the thousands of patients already infected with the virus.
Ezeibe however, said those already infested with coronavirus should not come to Nigeria to access the therapy to avoid spread of the virus.
He rather advised that their countries should make arrangements on how to obtain the therapy for their nationals.
