Opinion: A cure for AIDS, suppressed AIDS medicines, Part 8 continuation

Aids LogoBy Frides Laméris, Netherlands – Earlier contributions (parts 3, part 4 and part 7) described a number of successful anti-HIV medicines that were suppressed by medical authorities and pharmaceutical companies in various countries. A significant number of those medicines are described by the Dutch ex-university professor and internationally well known animal micro surgeon Johan Van Dongen.  Suffering the not unusual fate of a whistle blower having turned  against the abuse of animal experimentation in his profession, he was removed from his university  job.  Several years later he wrote a first book on about the truth behind AIDS and other virus infections’ Pleading for the ape’ in 1997. In his second book being  entitled AIDS, the greatest medical crime in history, published in 2003(Dutch only) Van Dongen devotes 18 pages to a cure for AIDS and describes many medical substances that are effective against the AIDS virus.

In part 7 he has described the therapeutically use of two important substances , one called DHEA, dehydro-epiandrosterone and the other substance , being a combination of sugar and sulphate, called dextran-sulphate.

Now, pt 8 of this series highlights the mentioning of a great number of medicinal substances which have been blacklisted by medical authorities and pharmaceutical companies without any public explanation.

Van Dongen (Greatest Crime, p 241):

Another medicinal substance that suffered suppression is the substance called AL 721. It contains lecithine, an extract of the American pokeweed (Phytolacea American). It proved to be highly effective against the AIDS virus. It was researched by  J.M. Zarling, a well known AIDS-researcher. Publications about this finding appeared in 1989 in the Deutsches Aerzteblatt and in 1990 in Nature.

Also in Germany many substances with a strong working against the AIDS virus were put on the black list for reasons not specified by the companies. This happened to the following polysaccharides produced by the German pharmaceutical companies Hoechst and Bayer: HB 946, L661, RU/486, Imreg-1 and AL -721, also known under the names Arteparon and Arumalon. Van Dongen further noticed the unexplained halting of the production of Bayolin.  The substance Ampligen was stopped from being produced by the pharmaceutical company Dupont and Merk, Sharp and Dome (MSD) halted their production of L661. Methadone, shown effective against the AIDS virus, was prohibited in Germany. This well known substitute for heroin, prescribed for intravenous drug users, was even denied to these very users by the Hoechst  company in the German state of Nortrhein Westfalen. In addition to this also the following list of substances was prohibited in Germany : diethylcarbamate; iosinpranobex, ribavarin, pentamidine, dehydroandrosterone and hypericine.

Antimonium wolframate (HPA-23)

HPA 23, according to van Dongen, is another substance capable of tackling HIV and stopping its growth. The workings of Heteropolyanion-23 have been described in 1954 and 1969 as a substance which is extraordinarily effective against the retrovirus that causes the Creuzfeld-Jacob disease (BSE and Kuru). Also the substances polyvinylsulphate, sulphate powder extracts of alges and dextran-sulphates  are helpful against the HIV virus,


A medicinal substance developed by etno-botanics, who gather medicinal herbs and plants in the tropical rainforests, is called prostatin. It is taken from a tree in the rainforests of the isle Samoa in the Pacific Ocean. Traditionally an extract of this tree was used as a remedy against  yellow fever. When researched more closely in the United States however, strong activity also against HIV was registered. Prostatin belongs to a category of chemicals  called forboles, which usually are carcinogenic substances. It turned out however prostatin was the only forbole that was an exception to this rule, so it would not obstruct the possibility of prostratin to become a helpful substance in fighting the AIDS virus. Prostatin, according to van Dongen never appeared on the market (as an anti-AIDS agent), because the research conducted  in the American laboratories never went public.




The last substance discussed by van Dongen is sambucol, extracted from the elderberry. A traditional and effective help from Grandma’s time against the flue .The elderberry is rich in B-vitamins, calcium and phosphor. Research has shown sambucol has strong antiviral properties.
