The varsity don, Prof. Maduike Ezeibe, gave the explanation while addressing newsmen, following the unveiling of a drug confirmed to wipe out traces of the virus in human by the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Francis Otunta.

Prof. Ezeibe disclosed that the drug was produced with Aluminum Silicate and Magnesium Silicate (Synthetic Aluminum-Magnesium Silicate).


He said that the two minerals “are already in use as medicines for the treatment of various animal and human diseases.”

“10 persons living with the disease ‘who volunteered’ were made to apply through their doctor to the VC.

“They were treated daily with the Medicinal Synthetic Aluminum-Magnesium Silicate (50 mg/kg),

“The volunteers were subjected to monthly tests for viral loads and CD4-lymphocyte counts.


“With the antiviral effects of the medicine, its ability to reach all cells (as nanoparticles) and the lymphocytes, there is no more hiding place (sanctuary) for HIV,” he said.

Ezeibe also said that he presented the research findings to the World Virology Conference in Atlanta in 2015, and Antonio (Texas) in 2016.

Besides, he said that the results of the laboratory tests had been published in many international scientific journals, including the British Journal of Medicine and Medical Research, among several others.

He said that he was also about to sign a memorandum of understanding with a U.S.-based Scientific Research Publishing, publishers of World Journal of AIDS, for the publication of his book “How I came about the cure for HIV/AIDS”.


He explained that the medicine had been used to potentiate Ampicillin, Chloroquine, Piperazine and Sulphadimidine, among others, and could be a major foreign exchange earner for Nigeria if approved by relevant authorities.

Ezeibe, who said that the medicine was patented in August 2014 in Nigeria, called on the Federal Government to help him to secure international patency for the drug.

According to him, “local and international pharmaceutical companies would find the product as a veritable raw material.”

“If commercialized, the Medicinal Synthetic Aluminum-Magnesium Silicate would become an alternative for petroleum to the Nigerian economy.”
