Camel's milk could deal with Aids, cancer
" SHARJAH– A research study body below is seeking worldwide tie ups to produce medicines to deal with fatal conditions including Aids from the special antibodies found in camel's milk.
The Arab Science as well as Technology Foundation that is dealing with a project to generate recombinant RNA from antibodies found in camel's milk to treat numerous diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's as well as hepatitis C, apart from Aids, prepares to approach American as well as European pharmacological organisations, claimed a leading official.
" We are optimistic regarding locating financiers to sponsor the project as lab examinations have confirmed the milk element's effectiveness in treating different sorts of diseases through such medications. Regardless of the tremendous curative effectiveness of the camel milk on a series of diseases, we will certainly focus on its strength of healing Alzheimer's, Aids, cancer as well as hepatitis," Imad Ghandour, the foundation's business development director, told Khaleej Times.
The production procedure of any type of medicine sets you back approximately $800 million, said Ghandour, adding: "Translating a suggestion (to produce a medicine) right into a task as well as ultimately having the medicine on pharmacies' shelves is very expensive. Loan is needed not just to manufacture the medicine from natural herbs or natural materials but likewise to obtain the approval for it from American and also European health organisations."
Besides, the speculative stage of any medicines takes in between 8 and 10 years, inning accordance with Ghandour. The medicine manufacturers need to guarantee the product has no negative effects. To ensure a 100 percent alleviative efficiency and clearance from adverse effects, massive resources is required.
" An American company– which generated a medicine that later on revealed harmful negative effects and also caused fatalties after two years of striking the markets– is encountering actual difficulties," he explained.
The idea of using camel's milk was initiated by Dr Sabah Al Jasim of the Shaikh Zayed Medical Herbs Centre. He performed a series of research laboratory tests, confirming the alleviative performance of the milk on various persistent and also severe conditions. Dr. Al Jasim then submitted his research to the foundation to make an application for patent and also manufacture it.
Dr. Al Jasim's proposition is based on the discovery of a multitude of viral antibodies in camel's product and also milk. The antibodies show exposure to illness by which they are not contaminated. A fact verified by the truth that camels are untouched by diseases like bovine spongiform encephalopathy (crazy cow illness) that affects various other livestocks, inning accordance with the study.
Microbial conditions including leptospirosis, glanders, epizootic ulcertaive disorder, lymphangitis, mastitis, pasteurellosis, paratuberculosis, tetanus, botulism, gas gangrene clostridia, the pester and also the rickettsias also seem of very small value to the camel in comparison to other residential pets, according to Dr. Al Jasim.
The relatively low molecular weight of the camel's hefty chain antibodies and also definitely the recombinant VHH derived from these heavy chain antibodies, confer a huge advantage below as compared to typical human antibodies.
The camel antibodies have the same antigen fondness as normal antibodies containing light and also hefty chains, yet are a lot smaller sized. Furthermore, the relative simpleness, high affinity as well as uniqueness and also the prospective to reach and also engage with active websites, camel's heavy chain antibodies existing advantages over common antibodies in the design, manufacturing and application of clinically beneficial compounds.
This makes them excellent candidates to permeate thick cells to reach the antigen, where larger healthy proteins could not.
" The primary step is to discover enrollers for the project. Then, 2 years will certainly be should verify curative effectiveness of drugs generated from camel milk on humans. Outcomes on volunteer clients will certainly then be submitted to American and also European organisations for approval on its manufacture– a procedure that normally takes up to eight years," Ghandour elaborated.
The foundation aims at adopting the task to advertise scientific research in the Arab world, by mediating among Arab scientists, innovators, Arab business owners and financiers. By facilitating the interaction amongst them sharing the goal of boosting scientific capacity structure inside the Arab globe, noted Ghandour."
