LAGOS, March 10 (Xinhua)-- A team of Nigerian scientists led by Dauda Oladepo of the International Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD) has discovered CD4 Lymphocyte baseline for testing HIV/AIDS patients in Nigeria, the Vanguard newspaper reported on Tuesday.

CD4 is used for monitoring and enrolling HIV patients for retroviral therapy, but before the discovery, scientists had argued that the CD4 baseline currently in use since the outbreak of HIV infection worldwide is meant for the white and not the black.

Leading his team to visit Nigeria's Minister of Health Babatunde Oshotimehi in Abuja on Monday, Oladepo said CD4 Lymphocyte baseline is very vital in monitoring and managing the disease progression of HIV infected people

Step in the right direction. Until less capitalistic nations realize the solution to the manufactured problem called HIV or AIDS must come through nonimperalistic nations, the less capitalistic nations will not find a solution to the problem.

Step two must involve identifying all infected persons with the manufactured problem called HIV or AIDS. This identification process cannot be a witch hunt or place persons under a stigma. Rather this process must be justify to protect the many while respecting infected persons. It must be done humanely with the intention on controlling the manufactured problem called HIV or AIDS. The treatment of infected persons will determine the success of eradicating the problem. If you treat infected person inhumanely, people will not wish to be identify. You cannot remedy a problem without controlling the environment.

Step three through a very transparent process, trials with ideas like the Daida Oladepo, Babetunde Oshotimehi and others are advocating. It can be done, especially if money is not the motivating determination of the process. As long as persons are benefiting off the problem, no solutions will be found.

Step four educating everyone about the origins of the manufactured problem; teaching them the value of changing their behaviors and explaining why less capitalistic nations are not allowing outsiders to participate. The solution is out there - just we have to believe we can find it.

What is the big deal. Running the Chart on Hiv patients will walk the line in repealing the White scientist position on Lymphocytes.

It is still the same Lymphocytes, I mean the cd4. The only good news about this is that it cripples the Neo Darwanian position that HIV resulted from African monkeys are by this demonstrably false.

The doctors can try to isolate the protein given the primary nature of Lymphocytes. A friend of mine who worked for a research company at Edac and at Bellevue hospital on 27th street assured me that type 1, type 11 and type 111 HIV virus can be located in both blacks and non blacks.

He also cited the possibility that the protein is the Virus. Robin in "dancing Matrix" equally alluded to the possibility that all Viruses are proteins. When you bring all these information from different sources together, you can begin to see that we have enough to tackle this disease once and for all.
