UNIBEN Officials Disown Claims of Cure for HIV

The University of Benin has disowned claims which has been widely circulated in the Nigerian media that its researchers have found a cure for HIV/AIDS.

The refutal comes a day after one of its professors, Isaiah Ibeh, announced a new drug which he said was capable of wiping out the virus from a patient in 30 days.


Mr. Ibeh, who is the Dean of the School’s Basic Medical Sciences, said he has conducted trials on five HIV patients, and the outcome showed the drug, Deconcuction X (DX)–Liquid or Bioclean 11, has the potency to destroy the virus.

He said more volunteers were undergoing treatment and that the efficacy of the medication, a herbal product, has been reviewed by US Toxicologists.

But in a latest twist to the tale, the school’s Provost, College of Medical Science, Vincent Iyawe, said on Wednesday that the school was not “consulted’ or “carried along” in the research, and said protocols for such studies were also not followed.

“The school will like to take credit for a breakthrough, but the school cannot align with the breakthrough because the university college was not consulted and the university was not consulted, Mr. Iyawe, a professor, was quoted as saying.

He said the findings needed to be presented to the federal ministry of health and exposed to more comprehensive clinical trials.
“We are going to take it (drug) to the clinical laboratory; we are going to take it to the Federal Ministry of Health because they have a procedure there,” he said. “We’ll probably take it to NAFDAC because it is a unit or department of the ministry.

“We’ll take it for clinical trial, and many things we’ll have to do before we can announce that we discovered something. In fact, we have to take it to the World Health Organization. So these are the things we are discussing.”
A full statement conveying the university’s position will be issued later, officials said.
