The reason why Ebola can be treated successfully with anti AIDS drugs as even CNN reported in 2014 is clear. Ebola and HIV both have the same characteristics, coming, as they do, from the same bioweapons programme.
Merck’s experimental Ebola vaccine, which is being given right now to health care workers and others in the Congo, is cultured in the cells of African green monkeys…
…which gave the world AIDS as even The Washington Post admitted in an article in 1992.
A doctor in rural Liberia inundated with Ebola patients says he’s had good results with a treatment he tried out of sheer desperation: an HIV drug.
Dr. Gorbee Logan has given the drug, lamivudine, to 15 Ebola patients, and all but two survived. That’s about a 13% mortality rate.
Across West Africa, the virus has killed 70% of its victims.
Outside Logan’s Ebola center in Tubmanburg, four of his recovering patients walk the grounds, always staying Outside Logan’s Ebola center in Tubmanburg, four of his recovering patients walk the grounds, always staying inside the fence that separates the Ebola patients from everyone else.
“My stomach was hurting; I was feeling weak; I was vomiting,” Elizabeth Kundu, 23, says of her bout with the virus. “They gave me medicine, and I’m feeling fine. We take it, and we can eat — we’re feeling fine in our bodies.”
Kundu and the other 12 patients who took the lamivudine and survived, received the drug in the first five days or so of their illness. The two patients who died received it between days five and eight.
From the Washington Post’s 1992 article on the role of monkey cells in AIDS.
The discovery that polio virus and other viruses could be grown in primate cell cultures was a key breakthrough in developing polio vaccines and won a Nobel prize in 1954 for researchers Frederick C. Robbins, Thomas H. Weller and John F. Enders, who used human tissues for their studies.
But it was later discovered that monkey kidneys used in vaccine production often contained previously unknown monkey viruses, some of which could infect people — and in fact had done so. Researchers identified scores of simian viruses (SVs) in the kidneys of monkeys, commonly used to culture polio vaccine.
