The result showed an increase in the body weight of the individuals administered with DX,” Ibeh said.He said further tests were being conducted to determine the point at which a patient will prove negative after being administered the drug, explaining that this verification became necessary because it is what is used to measure whether an infection was still there or not.“ Preliminary results showed that of the five latest patients orally administered with the drugs within seven months, three of them were siro negative while two were still faintly positive,” he explained, while appealing to government and other relevant bodies to assist the university with relevant equipment to sustain the research.
