Federal Research Center Will Help Develop Medicines "The Obama administration has become so concerned about the slowing pace of new drugs coming out of the pharmaceutical industry that officials have decided to start a billion-dollar government drug development center to help create medicines."

The modern attempt to base medicine almost solely on corporate greed has been a colossal failure, especially in new-drug development. Anyone can die or live for years in bad health with diseases that should have been cured or better treated by now, given the enormous advances in science, and the huge U.S. investments in medical research.

We must explore new approaches. Let's hope NIH gets this one right.

The Japanese teams of Japanese-American Dr. Nobuto Yamamoto found a cure for early HIV infections nine years ago. The United States Public Health Service provided a partial grant for their trial (grant# AI-32140). Natural GcMAF, from pooled human blood plasma, is not patentable. There is no excuse for a nine year delay in running a trial on a known cure. There is no excuse for the refusal of American HIV/AIDS CBOs and NGOs to interview Dr. Yamamoto in the five years since his team first published their poster/abstract in 2006 on the very first 15 patients they cured.

Here's a new "approach" - interview someone with a known cure!
