Lorati, a Taiwan-based biotechnology and skincare company, has developed nano-medication to inhibit HIV-1 viral replication. Mr David Lo, CEO, Lorati commented, "nano-medication, based on bentonite, also known as God's dirt, is believed to be the last-ditch treatment for AIDS. Unbelievable improvement can be obtained within one month of treatment by nano-medication. After being treated by a couple of months, AIDS patients can even go back to HIV-1 status, meaning, number of CD4+ increases substantially".
"If AIDS patients want to be out of critical condition, nano-medication is the only resort," said Mr Lo. Mr Lo explained, "Nano-medication can tackle HIV-1 both extracellularly and intracellularly." Nano-particles of nano-medication can bond to HIV-1 spikes, meaning glycoprotein 120 (gp120) and glycoprotein 41 (gp41), which are polar chemicals. Since gp120 contains 50 percent of glycans, it is extremely difficult for organic medicine to bond to it. The company is now looking for strategic partners to conduct clinical trials on AIDS.
