Professor Maduike Ezeibe, instructor at the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Abia State, is claiming that he has recently created a new therapy for HIV/AIDS.
After 19 years of relentless research, he has produced Antivirt, a drug with minimal side effects that he contends is very effective in treating and curing HIV/AIDS within two months. Beginning in 1994, his study concluded in 2013 and was eventually published in the British Journal of Medicine & Medical Research. His work also appeared in the American-based medical journal, the Health.
Ezeibe says that the discovery is a major breakthrough in the search for a cure to the global pandemic as scientists allegedly continue their search for a cure.
Although he faced major opposition, Ezeibe says he forged ahead and created the therapy after joining the medical world in his efforts to search for a solution to HIV/AIDS, which was decimating communities across the globe.
Ezeibe said he published his research work on the therapy in an effort to prove wrong the naysayers who doubted that a Black man could develop an HIV/AIDS cure. He even challenged anyone to question the experiment’s authenticity and to verify it in any part of the world. He stated that it only requires two essential minerals—aluminum silicate (kaolin) and magnesium silicate—for the production of the therapy. The minerals are mostly found in Umuahia and parts of Abia State. It will also make the therapy—which he claims lasts approximately two to three months to fully cure AIDS/HIV—more affordable than the old anti-retroviral therapy.
The HIV/AIDS pandemic has been one of the major health concerns not just in Africa but throughout the Diaspora. A report by the United Nations Programme on AIDS stated that as of 2011, approximately 23.5 million sub-Saharan Africans are HIV-positive, accounting for 69 percent of the global total of those infected. The report also revealed that nearly 6.2 million people in sub-Saharan Africa were receiving antiretroviral therapy in 2011, up from just 100,000 in 2003.
The professor of veterinary medicine obtained his degree in veterinary medicine from the University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1986. He also earned a master’s in ruminant medicine, as well as his canine medicine doctorate degree from the University of Nigeria Nsukka.
