AIDS Patient Blasts German Test Results

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Nikolay Kolesnikov–who underwent anti-AIDS therapy with Armenicum–believes the results presented by German doctors to be biased. In a Noyan Tapan interview Kolesnikov said that analyses in Germany and Yerevan were properly conducted.

"But when I heard [the German’scientists’] conclusions I was surprised and simply did not believe them," Kolesnikov said. On November 3–the patient was examined by Russian doctors–who–according to Kolesnikov–said that what was written in a Russian daily newspaper on the Hamburg tests was "simply ridiculous."

"I can feel it. I had suffered a lot before the treatment and now I feel stable," Kolesnikov declared.

Kolesnikov spent six days in Hamburg. Doctors at the Institute of Tropical Medicine tested his blood and made ultrasonic examinations–X-rayed his lungs–and tested his immunity. Kolesnikov also had his marrow tested. After returning to Moscow Kolesnikov did not meet with any of the Russian newspaper daily staff.

David Aslanian–head of the Analysis and Information Center of the Armenicum project–categorically denied the suggestion recently made by head of the Russian Federal Center for AIDS Prevention Professor Vadim Pokrovsky that Armenian doctors are making big money on Armenicum. He underlined that the clinic’s patients have received treatment free of charge so far.
