YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–A marked improvement has been observed in the health condition of all 24 Ukrainian citizens who underwent a course of treatment with Armenicum–the anti-AIDS medicine invented by Armenian scientists–the Ukranian Embassy in Armenia told Noyan Tapan quoting the Interfax-Ukraine news agency.
The patients have been under medical control at the AIDS Prevention Center of Ukraine whose director–Alla Scherbinskaya–was in Armenia to establish the treating efficacy of Armenicum.
Speaking at the meeting of the National Coordinating Council for AIDS Prevention operating under the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine–Scherbinskaya indicated that earlier patients had not been registered by the Center and that at present Ukranian specialists are not in a position to conduct thorough examinations of patients for lack of virus load test systems in Ukraine.
There are 29,000 HIV-carriers and AIDS-stricken patients officially registered in Ukraine today. The sulfur monitoring conducted by 150 AIDS diagnostics laboratories exposed another 20,000 HIV-carriers.
International experts estimate that this figure in Ukraine runs into 240,000. The UNAIDS/WHO report indicates that Ukraine’s HIV and AIDS situation is the most dramatic in the post-Soviet states.
