The academic, while briefing newsmen in Benin, said the herbal drug had undergone “series of successful tests”. He added that: “We are at the threshold of making history, in the sense that we seem to have with us something that will permanently take care of what over time seems to have defied all solutions… We are talking about the latest discovery of an oral drug made from plants extraction in Nigeria for the possible cure of the pandemic, HIV and AIDS virus.” The research work, Prof Ibeh explained, started in 2010 and culminated in the development of “Deconcotion X (DX)–Liquid or Bioclean 11 for the cure of HIV and AIDS”.
He added: “The existing retroviral drugs are intervention drugs for the management of AIDS but our new discovery is a possible cure… We have tried to look at the product first; its toxicological analysis and discovered that it has a large safety margin. This means that if animals or human beings are exposed to it, they will not suffer any serious harm at all from the exposure.
“It also helped us to know the quantity we can conveniently give to animals and will feel secure that nothing untoward will happen. We have also done the bacteriological analysis on it, after which we looked at its effect on the virus and the result was quite revealing and refreshing.” According to Ibeh, the drug had undergone series of medical examination both in Nigeria and in the USA. He added that the drug had performed well when administered to patients with the HIV virus and had shown evidence of total restoration of damaged tissues.
