Ghana Finds Potential Cure for HIV Following 10 Years of Research


The Centre of Awareness has disclosed that it has found a potential cure for HIV/AIDS following ten years of research into plant medicines in Ghana, Adom Online reports.
 
The information was revealed by the founder of the centre, Dr Samuel Ato Duncan who said the drug named COA has been scientifically tested and seen to be efficacious and safe for the treatment of HIV/AIDS.
 
He revealed details during a presentation on the drug at the Physicians and Surgeons auditorium in Accra on Wednesday, 5 October 2016.
 

 
Scientists told The Sunday Times that presently the virus is completely undetectable in the man’s blood, although that could be a result of regular drugs. However if the dormant cells are also cleared out it could represent the first complete cure. Trial results are expected to be published in 2018.

"This is one of the first serious attempts at a full cure for HIV,” said Mark Samuels, managing director of the National Institute for Health Research Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure.

“We are exploring the real possibility of curing HIV. This is a huge challenge and it's still early days but the progress has been remarkable."
