Potential Cure for HIV?
Welcome to another day in my life. I am in the second day of a very busy week like most of you.
After waking up to a bright, sunny, warm day here in north Florida; I had my morning protein shake and a workout. Today was abs and legs. Gotta feel that burn to get back into shape.
After my workout, I had to finish getting ready for the Women's HIV/AIDS Day at Edward Waters College this evening. One of our board members, Torrencia, is also speaking and doing our HIV/AIDS awareness, education and prevention table. We handed out a ton of condoms and information to the college kids.
I also had to work on a couple of items for the Positive Living Conference 12 in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida, this coming weekend. I was finally able to get a collage done of the pictures for Marty's tribute and emailed a link to his tribute slide.
But I came across something today saying possible cure for HIV so you know it caught my eye. So here is the story:
HIV Co-Discoverer Goes to Court Over Rights to Potential Cure
Nobel Prize winning French researcher Luc Montagnier credited as co-discovering HIV is being accused of stealing the intellectual property rights to a revolutionary electromagnetic technique that may be used to combat HIV and other diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, The Daily Telegraph reports.
According to the article, Montagnier is engaged in a legal battle with inventor Bruno Robert, who approached him in May 2005 with his work on electromagnetic waves. The following November, Robert registered a patent for a process that would pinpoint illnesses by their electromagnetic signature and potentially block or neutralize them with an opposing signal. A month later, Montagnier requested a patent for the exact biochemical process. The case went to court March 3.
Robert’s lawyer alleges that Montagnier has already admitted that he did not come up with the discovery, adding that the virologist had signed a contract to use Robert’s electromagnetic technique in 2005 in exchange for an annual payment of 100,000 euros per year over a five year period. Robert says he received no such payment. Montagnier’s lawyer affirms that his client had only signed a “protocol agreement,” which is not legally binding.
So I guess we are still waiting but maybe a little more hopeful.
Now I am getting ready to hit the sheets and catch some much needed pillow time. Very tired after a long day. I hope you had a rewarding day also.
Wishing you health, hope and happiness.
Big bear hug,
