The Good News About HIV? The Answer To Solving It Is Found In A Weed, New Study Suggests
Current data has revealed that more than one million people in the U.S. are affected by HIV. And with the number of persons in authority trying to push the legalization of marijuana use, this is yet another proof that medicinal marijuana is indeed significant to the health. That being said, a new study has revealed that a common type of weed that is commonly found on roadsides in Hyderabad, the capital of southern India's Telangana state and elsewhere in the country may have the potential to fight the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
HIV Solution Is Found In A Weed
According to reports revealed by Times Of India, there has been a series of experiments conducted by researchers at the Department of Zoology, Infectious Diseases and Metabolic Diseases Research Laboratory, Kakatiya University in Warangal which has allegedly shown that the molecule obtained from the weed named as Aerva lanata had up to 91 percent efficacy in terms of fighting HIV. However, synthetic drugs that were presently used for HIV treatment have side effects. As of press time, researchers have revealed that since the molecule taken from Aerva lanata is natural, it is basically perceived not to have any negative impact.
Aerva Lanata And Its Features
Meanwhile, in one of her statements reported by Your City Your News, one of the researchers, Dr. Estari Mamidala said that they have already recommended medical universities and major research institutions to conduct clinical research in their laboratory findings to corroborate the results in patients since Mamidala's team has also revealed that they cannot do tests on human beings. It was found that the roots of the weed have been in use by tribes in the forests of Khammam for such a long time now for a number of bacterial and viral diseases. Ultimately, Dr. Estari said that since the extracts of Aerva lanata showed inhibitory activity on HIV, it could potentially be used to develop a new drug for HIV treatment or other infectious diseases that are mainly caused by the pathogenic micro-organisms, for which plant sterols may play a distinctive role.
