HIV Potentially Killed By Bee Venom

Recently, researchers at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis discovered that a toxin called melittin found in bee venom has the potential to kill HIV cells upon contact. When melittin is loaded onto nanoparticles it destroys the protective envelope surrounding HIV but not the human cells nearby. The nano particles had bumpers installed by the researcher, Samuel A. Wickline, MD, so that when they encountered normal cells they would not be damaged by the toxin. Normal cells are too large to touch the melittin because they are blocked by the bumpers, but the HIV structures are smaller and fit between the bumpers and therefore are touched by the bee venom.

One of the other researchers, Joshuhau Hood MD, explained ‘Melittin on the nanoparticles fuses with the viral envelope. “The melittin forms little pore-like attack complexes and ruptures the envelope, stripping it off the virus.’ (Source: Washington University)

The researchers said their melittin delivery method may be more effective, because it damages the virus in a significant way, but other drugs try to stop HIV from replicating. In some cases, HIV adapts and finds a way to continue replicating because the overall structure is not damaged by the drugs. Hood said in theory, there isn’t any way for HIV to adapt to having its protective envelope damaged and stripped away. Potential applications of melittin delivered by nanoparticles are a vaginal gel to target HIV before infection and an intravenous treatment of HIV infections.

Melittin has also been shown to damage tumors and greatly inhibit the bacteria that causes lyme disease. It is the main component of bee venom.

It is well known that chemicals found in Nature can have medicinal benefits for humans, such as Taxol which is used in cancer treatment and was first found in the bark of the Pacific Yew Tree. A University of Utah researcher discovered a toxin produced by a species of cone snail has the potential to be a very good medication to reduce pain in humans and there are other examples of chemical compounds from Nature having applications for our own health.

Tragically, bees worldwide are threatened by habit loss, parasites, viruses, climate change and exposure to agricultural chemicals.

    Very interesting article!
    Also kudos for the links.
    To find bee venom just Google: “apitoxin medical grade”.
    Apitoxin is the Latin name for bee venom.
    The main ingredient of bee venom is the peptide melittin that is capable of killing HIV-virus.

    Can you help me in this regard ?
    HIV can be removed by wasp venom
    HIV/AIDS can be removed by venom of Yellow Jacket Wasp ( Vespula vulgaris ).
    Medicine – One bite of Yellow Jacket Wasp should be taken in a week. Wasp venom kills HIV and as a result the viral load of a patient decreases rapidly. The treatment should be continued until the load becomes zero. It generally takes six to seven months. The time may vary depending upon the degree of infection. Once the load becomes zero the treatment should be stopped. In this way the HIV can be removed permanently from a patient’s body.
    Wholesome – During this treatment soup of Kulekhara ( Hygrophila spinosa) is recomended. One should take its soup atleast thrice a week. Wasp venom kills HIV as well as it causes haemolysis. Kulekhara helps in new blood formation. So it is very useful for health and energy.
    THIS IS A FREE TREATMENT FOR HIV/AIDS BECAUSE THE TWO ITEMS MENTIONED ABOVE ARE EASILY AVAILABLE IN NATURE TOTALLY FREE.
    One HIV positive student came to me in December’ 2005. I applied this treatment during January’2006 to July’2006 and then stopped. From that period till now he is not taking any medicine for AIDS and he is living a very healthy life.
    His viral load is now still zero. Moreover his CD4 value is 535 which indicates a good immunity .
    As he was HIV positive the antibodies are present in his body. So any antibody test indicates that he is HIV positive but actually no virus is present in his body.
    NOW MY QUESTION IS : IS THERE ANY TYPE OF CLINICAL TEST WHICH WILL PROVE THAT HE IS CURED OR NOT ?
    PLEASE SUGGEST ME WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW ?
