YEREVAN (Armenpress)–A team of Russian physicians arrived in Armenia Monday–headed by the chief doctor for the Russian international medical clinic to monitor the progress of a Russian soldier infected with the HIV virus–who was transported to Armenia for treatment with the newly revealed drug Armenicum–the so-called cure for AIDS. A group of experts from the World Health Organization also arrived in Armenia Monday.
The lead physician Dimoty Dzhi Mid told reporters at Zvartnots international airport that they were headed to a hospital where 20-year-old Nikolai Kolesnikov was being treated on a program sponsored by the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.
Kolesnikov is in his sixth day of treatment at a clinic in Armenia–where he told reporters that his fatigue and other symptoms have dissipated. He was diagnosed with HIV–the virus that causes AIDS–in September.
The patient has said that the treatmen’s cause shivers and high fever.
The group of experts from the World Health Organization are in Yerevan to study a drug that Armenian authorities claim can cure AIDS–Interfax reported Tuesday.
The team–which arrived in the Armenian capital Monday–will meet with the inventors of the Armenicum medicine and patients treated with it in one of Yerevan’s clinics.
Armenian officials say Armenicum clears the body of HIV and other viruses without any serious side effects. They say 13 patients have already been cured of HIV.
Currently four Armenia’s and one Russian citizen are taking Armenicum– Interfax said.
