Comment

South Africa’s health products regulator has said it would not authorize use of the Sputnik vaccine because of the results of earlier studies testing a modified form of adenovirus – a type of virus that causes respiratory infections – contained in it. These studies, conducted in both South Africa and the Americas, found an increased risk of HIV infection among men who received the vaccine.

Tragically, South Africa continues to carry one of the world’s highest burdens of HIV. This is despite micronutrients having long been known to be beneficial in the fight against it. In 2005, the results of our clinical pilot study, conducted among people in South Africa affected by AIDS, showed that a specific combination of micronutrients could halt – and in many cases reverse – the symptoms of the disease.

Our findings were subsequently confirmed in a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2013, which found that long-term supplementation with multivitamins and selenium for HIV-infected patients in Botswana reduced the risk of immune decline and illness. It is particularly notable that the patients taking part in this JAMA study had not previously received toxic antiretroviral (ARV) drug therapy.
