medical researchers say, the Lignum Vitae tree, which is Jamaica’s national flower, has properties that can be used
to treat persons infected with AIDS.
The research was spearheaded by noted Jamaican scientist and Entrepreneur,
Dr. Henry Lowe.
The research team observed that the Lignum Vitae have potent bio-agents
against the deadly HIV virus that causes AIDS. A statement today from Dr.
Lowe’s EHF Group of Companies, says that although known from last year, test results were repeated
several times to ensure data accuracy.
Since the findings were published in the April 2014 issue of the prestigious
European Journal of Medicinal Plants.
According to the statement, since
publication, a significant amount of additional data has been developed.
The work of Dr. Lowe and his research team has been lauded by Dr. Joseph
Bryant of the Institute of Human Virology at the University of Maryland Medical
School, where the Global Viral Network is located.
Dr. Bryant says Dr. Lowe and
his researchers need to be recognized and commended for bringing a gift of a
major potential magic bullet from a Jamaican tree, to the potential management
of the HIV virus.
