SANA'A, April 12 (Saba) - Chairman of the Iman University Abdul Majeed al-Zindani has announced his university readiness to treat HIV-affected people.
The announcement was made at a press conference on the sidelines of the first international health conference that coincided with the sixth medical forum held recently in Yemen.
Al-Zindani said that after twenty years of search he and a medical team could produce a medication that will help cure the HIV- affected people.
He added the medication was produced under the supervision of the University of Abdul Aziz Bin Saud.
Experiments conducted on animals indicated the medicine was safe and no side effects could associate its use.
Al-Zindani said he is facing difficulties preventing him from getting patent, pointing out that the Public Health and Population ministry promised to give him a patent after he gave it samples of the drug to be tested.
On the other hand, he indicated that he had conducted other searches by which he could produce medicines for treating the diseases of the hepatitis B and hepatitis C, and diabetes.
But he added that it is difficult to provide large quantities of these medicines for people.
