This is why we have the smartest people in the middle east and Iran a country who has great influence in science and technology.




Tehran, Sept 5, IRNA

Minister of Health and Medical Education Kamran Baqeri Lankarani will unveil a breakthrough achieved by Iranian scientists to cure the deadly epidemic of AIDS later in the day.

According to Health Ministry officials, Iranian scientists have invented a formula to control symptoms of AIDS.

"The research studies to find out a formula to cure AIDS was initiated during the tenure of two former health ministers and have led to useful results," a health official said.

Former minister of health and medical education Mohammad Farhadi who served as executive director of the project for 'a formula for reinvigorating the immunity system of the body' told IRNA that the project led to the discovery of a formula to control symptoms of AIDS and some other virus-oriented infections.

"A new theory was sponsored in the past five years to invent a formula with herbal and chemical materials to help treat patients who are suffering from weak immunity system.

An extensive team comprised of scientists and researchers were designated to conduct research studies on the subject.

"The theory was to determine whether or not it is possible to boost the immunity system of the body. Some 60 projects were initiated to attain the result," Dr. Farhadi said.

"At last the scientists found out a formula and then experimental works were carried out on animals at the laboratory to determine the effects of the formula."
Dr. Farhadi said that the Ministry of Health and Medical Education granted permission for clinical application of the formula on the patients afterwards.

He said that this is the first time that Iran has invented the formula and will register it with the respective international forum.

new meeting in account by UNIC to talk about world-wide health issues.



The 53rd session of the regional committee for the eastern Mediterranean is scheduled to convene in Isfahan on Sept 9-12.

The meeting is being hosted in Isfahan by the Islamic Republic of Iran. UN Information Center in Tehran (UNIC) said that the regional committee is the WHO governing body at the regional level.

It comprises, as members, all ministers of health of the member states or their alternates who will meet to set policies and approve programs and budgets in the region.

"They will be discussing major health-related issues that have arisen in the region during the year since the closing of the last session of the regional committee and following up implementation of the recommendations made to the director general, regi onal director and member states. Emergency preparedness and response will top the agenda in light of the disasters, wars and conflicts which many countries of the region have recently experienced," it said."

These include the Pakistan earthquake. Darfur crisis and the recent war on Lebanon. A progress report on the subject reviews what has been implemented with regard to enhancing country preparedness for emergencies, an issue that was the subject of a res olution of the 52nd session of the regional committee.

UNIC said that Iranian first Vice-President Parviz Davoudi will be attending the inaugural ceremony of the WHO regional committee.

No, really.



Admin edit - This kind of thing is frowned upon when members do it, and certainly if staff do it.

I'll be watching this with interest. I hope you plan on keeping us all informed of how it all pans out.

BTW, how does a Mod get away with responses that add nothing to the topic at hand?

It says it led to a formula that will help control the symptoms, not cure it. But then again, you're not biased or anything are you?

'Slaps Nerdling'

Behave man.... I know your angle on this, even if these chaps don't.... 'smiles' play nice.... so what if he came in with the nationalism crap as the opener, this is about something more important. Though I will admit I am skeptical, I would like it to be so that ANYONE, be they Iran, the US, or the UK, could one day create a realistic cure for AIDS and HIV.

so far a formula has been made that can control it but there are further investigations followed to see if we can expand it. My apologies from the american comment. I get those remarks so often whenever Iran accomplishes something and it just fuels up my anger.


I will do my best to keep this thread updated.

As far as I am concerned, Nerdling's response was an honest one. Frankly, Nerdling said the exact two words that came to my own lips after reading this title post. Whether this is a "typical" American response or not, it's a valid response that succinctly sums up the initial thought that might come to mind. "No, really." ........

Do you have any independent verification from the WHO or the CDC?

Can you tell me what Non-Governmental organisations are exploring this "cure" for HIV and AIDS and are providing funding?

Controlling symptoms of AIDS is hardly "curing AIDS and HIV".

Okay, let's go back to fifth grade Biology.

Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome is a collection of infections and symptoms brought on by HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Syndrome), it manifests in pulmonary, gastro intestinal and neurological ailments. It's a collection of not very nice things.

You can contract tuberculosis, meningitis, pneumonia and many other things. That is the nature of the beast.

So, if you want to explore this wording, this "cure" could merely be a muscle stimulant that stops diarrhea and is not an Iranian cute for HIV and AIDS.

So what? A cure will never be found? A cure will only be found by caucasians? The western world is the only place where such a breakthrough could be made? Is that what you think? If so, what do you base that on? Please enlighten me, I'd really be very interested to know.

Sorry, I can't get past the "plus easy instructions for an electronic circuit that lets you zap the virus"...


If you flip over the flyer is there an ad for x-ray glasses on the other side??

A formula to control the symptoms of AIDS.

It is not a cure.

There are already many of these formulas on the market.

Your title of this thread is incorrect and misleading.

I agree, the title is misleading. I also agree with Nerdling. Aids is the result of multiple illnesses correct? I dont think we can really cure aids, we need to cure HIV. Am I off point here, if so please correct me.

Yes, I inferred the same thing. Not.

A "cure" doesn't "control the symptoms"; is eliminates whatever it is intended to cure. As I began reading this article, I noticed the inconsistancies was considering the best response, when Nerdling took the words outta my mouth.

Enlightenment in this case only requires you to read the article.

The claim of curing HIV/AIDS is laughable at best.

First one must understand the two distinct conditions:



www.cdc.gov...

HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) is the virus that causes AIDS. This virus may be passed from one person to another when infected blood, semen, or vaginal secretions come in contact with an uninfected person’s broken skin or mucous membranes*. In addition, infected pregnant women can pass HIV to their baby during pregnancy or delivery, as well as through breast-feeding. People with HIV have what is called HIV infection. Some of these people will develop AIDS as a result of their HIV infection.


So to "cure HIV," the treatment would have to eliminate the virus from an infected person's body.

That should be easy enough to prove, someone has it... Then they don't. I suggest the leadership of Iran be infected, then "cured." Put your health where your mouth is, so to speak.



www.cdc.gov...

AIDS stands for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome.
Acquired – means that the disease is not hereditary but develops after birth from contact with a disease causing agent (in this case, HIV).

Immunodeficiency – means that the disease is characterized by a weakening of the immune system.

Syndrome – refers to a group of symptoms that collectively indicate or characterize a disease. In the case of AIDS this can include the development of certain infections and/or cancers, as well as a decrease in the number of certain cells in a person’s immune system.

A diagnosis of AIDS is made by a physician using specific clinical or laboratory standards.


Curing AIDS is a lot tougher, because that would mean curing all the related illnesses and infections subsequent to AIDS. A daunting task, and one that would involve some rather notable ailments.

So basically Iran has claimed by proxy that they can cure all these illnesses? I think not. They may have certain symptoms that can be effectively treated, perhaps with new techniques (they should be applauded if it's true and reproducible under controlled conditions).

So when is this going to be shared with the world? Or are they going to put it right next to their "peaceful nuclear research" in some underground bunker?

Very misleading title...
but in the OP's defense, he may have not understood that difference himself, since the flyer seems to be a very misleading version of the article also...

Maybe he only read the flyer...

There is NO cure for AIDs...
but Mehran... there are already many products that do what your country has created...

but be proud, at least Iran is trying, and at least they have discovered yet, another way for AIDs symptoms to be helped.

the more, the better...

the electricity zapper thing is a very old hoax here though
(originally invented in the USA in 1919)... we refer to those kind of cures as SNAKE OIL, because they rarely help, and sometimes hurt.

the herbal cure they referred to could be interesting though... keep us informed.

Nerdling for the use of one too many smilies, I'm deducting several hundred of your points and adding it mines.

Mehran, you have to understand we the average public are currently being hit by propaganda from all sides, Nerdling is only reacting to the fact that this bit of information is rather timely in the propaganda wars and as MirthFulMe and Lazarus have pointed out... it's a lot more complicated than simply saying "We have the cure for AIDS".

i would suggest everyone not rush to judgement regarding this development until after the meetings...and reaction of other world scientists.

The 53rd session of the regional committee for the eastern Mediterranean is scheduled to convene in Isfahan on Sept 9-12.
