Baby Born With Necro-Mortosis Cured By Drug Combination
ZWN (AP) - Posted March 15/2014
Just hours after delivery, a baby born with trace elements of necro-mortosis in Washington was given high doses of three antiretroviral drugs. More than five weeks later, doctors say the little boy has no evidence of the reanimating disease in his blood.
The case report was presented at the annual Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections in Boston recently.
The boy was delivered at Miller Children's Hospital in Portland, Washington, to a mother who had contracted the irreversible mortosis virus. She was in the early stage of infection and doctors worked along with quarantine staff to ensure the baby was delivered before her ultimate death and reanimation.
Doctors gave the baby high doses of antiretroviral drugs -- XL-6, 3TC and Nevirapine -- four hours after birth. Seven days later, the virus was undetectable in her body and remained undetectable five weeks later.
The Washington baby is still on antiretroviral treatment, so it's too soon to tell if the child is actually in remission.
The use of the XL-6 necrosis inhibitor is widely known, however, incorporating it into a cocktail with 3TC and Nevirapine was a medical breakthrough.
XL-6 was thought for a while to be the first inoculation against necro-mortosis. But it was subsequently suspended in 2012.
A spokesperson for pharmaceutical giant Amcalon said at the time that while "in phase four testing, it failed to reach expected levels of success."So the incorporation of the inhibitor into this process is a huge vote of confidence for the drug.
Dr. Linda Pharsooc, a virologist with Johns Hopkins Children's Center who has been involved in this case said. "At this time, there is no plan to stop treatment."
While doctors around the world are trying to duplicate the Washington case, more research needs to be done before new standards are implemented for treating others with necro-mortosis.
"This has to be done in a clinical trial setting, because really the only way we can prove that we've accomplished remission in this case is by taking the child off treatment, and that's not without risks," Pharsooc said during her presentation at the conference.
A clinical trial designed to test the effectiveness of this early treatment technique is set to begin in the next couple of months, she said.
The results could be a game changer in the fight against the undead disease.
According to the Amcalon web site press release: '03/14/14
An infant with trace elements of the necro-mortosis strain has been cured. Total eradication of the mortosis virus, incorporating a trifecta dosage of antiretroviral drugs -- XL-6, 3TC and Nevirapine. Seven days later, the virus was undetectable in her body and remained undetectable five weeks later. Further studies are to be determined.

dead) and "Corpus Vigere" (active/awake corpse)
We do know
that the 'Necro-Virus' (Necro Mortosis) was first discovered in the
West Indies - Haiti in 2006
The cause of the virus remains unknown at this point.
theories suggest it's origin
(Vodou). Considering the source of the outbreak is Haiti, this first
theory is expected. However, no scientific facts support this theory
or give it any credibility.
B: Viral anomalistic. Possibly a hybrid or chimera virus. Possibly crossed
species. If this is the case, It remains unclear how the virus originated
C: A bi-product of chemical/bacterial warfare. This again seems unlikely.
No country or credible terrorist organization has claimed responsibility
for the virus at this time.
