Taiwan synthesizes HIV antigen and succeeds in animal test


According to media of Taiwan, 3 million people die of AIDS every year. Recently scientists found that some aborigines of Australia have certain antibody named 2G12 which could restrain the reproduction of HIV and refresh human immune system to kill the deadly virus. Wen Qihui, director of Gene Research Center of China Research Institute of Taiwan, as he spoke on Aug.3 in Wu Jiangxiong Science Camp, said that average people would get ill soon after infected by HIV, because the speed of reproduction of the virus is too quick to be restrained by human immune system.While 2G12 could react to the special carbohydrate molicules on the surface of the virus, and restrain the reproduction of the virus to aviod the people getting ill by refreshing immune system against HIV.

Wen Qihui said that he synthesized the antigen from the special molecules of carbohydrate combined by 2G12, and then he combined the antigen and protein to produce bacterin, and then injected the bacterin into mouse's body to produce antibody. There are a variety of variations of HIV. 2G12 can restrain the functions of half of the variations.

Following the same principle, Wen also synthesized bacterin Globo-H, which can be used in restraining the hyperplasia of cancer cells, and refresh immune system to kill them. At present, it has been testified that the prophase bacterin can restrain the hyperplasia of breast cancer cells. The further test will be performed in the second and third period of human experiment.

In addition, HIV infects cats too. Wen said that his lab has synthesized a small molecule which can restrain the function of protein ferment, thus disable HIV. By injecting the small molecules into the body of a cat suffering AIDS, the cat recovered. There have been more than 20 cats completely recovered by this way.The molecules, also functioned against SARS virus. He reasoned that the part of receiving protein ferment instruction is similar between SARS and HIV, while the small molecule could restrain the function of the part. But further research is needed.

According to media of Taiwan,

This phrase doesn't make much sense to me- what median? in Taiwan alone? or applying the Taiwan median to the world?

have certain antibody

have a certain antibody

refresh human immune system

refresh the human immune system (how about revitalise?)

average people

ordinary people

combined by

combined with

into mouse's body to produce antibody.
into a mouse's body to produce antibody (either the\an antibody or antibodies)
.

it has been testified

proved\shown

The further test

further tests

protein ferment (this doesn't mean anything to me)

thus disable HIV
thus disabling HIV

suffering AIDS
suffering from AIDS

20 cats completely recovered
20 cats which completely recovered

The molecules, also functioned against SARS virus
The molecules also functioned against the SARS virus

Thanks for editing, Tdol

Regarding "protein ferment", please search the compound noun in google, you could found out more than 30,000 items listing there. For example:

Ivan Pavlov - Nobel Lecture
... The bread protein induces secretion of more protein ferment than the protein of milkor meat, and a corresponding phenomenon is observed in the test tube: protein of meat and milk is broken up more easily by the protein ferment than vegetable protein. ...

I'm not a scientist, so I noted it. ;-)
