Scientists say that specious claim will damage nation's image

Officials with the Egyptian army say they've found a cure for both AIDS and hepatitis C - that will cure the patient in as little as 16 hours. It's a brave claim, which has piqued interest - and condemnation across the globe. Scientists argue that this latest claim will further damage Egypt's international reputation, still reeling from government instability after the Arab spring.

Egypt contains the highest prevalence of hepatitis C worldwide, with at least 10 percent of the population suffering from the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - "I defeated AIDS with the grace of my God at the rate of 100 percent. And I defeated hepatitis C," Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Abdel-Atti, head of the Cancer Treatment and Screening center declared.

Scathing criticism was quick to follow. "I want to be clear and explicit, what has been said and published about the invention of the armed forces hurts the image of scientists and science in Egypt," Essam Heggy, the scientific adviser to the President told reporters.

The purported "Complete Cure Device" draws blood from a patient, breaks down the disease and returns the purified blood back to the body, according to Dr. Ihsan Hanfy Hussein. A member of Abdel-Atti's research team, she says the process cures all ailments in as little as 16 hours.

"I will take the AIDS from the patient and I will nourish the patient on the AIDS treatment. I will give it to him like a skewer of Kofta to nourish him," Abdel-Atti said, referring to a dish made of ground meat.

"I will take it away from him as a disease and give it back to him in the form of a cure," he said. "This is the greatest form of scientific breakthrough."

Egypt contains the highest prevalence of hepatitis C worldwide, with at least 10 percent of the population suffering from the disease, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Abdel-Atti paid tribute to the military chief and unofficial presidential hopeful, Field Marshal Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, who attended the unveiling of the "miracle" device registered under the armed forces and approved by the country's Ministry of Health.

The announcement has shocked the Egyptian medical and scientific community. "What has been said is not scientifically disciplined," Dr. Gamal Shiha, a leading liver specialist and member of the team evaluating the device.

"There is nothing published, and there is nothing in medical conferences, and there is no single eminent professor around the project," Shiha says. "Nothing scientifically relevant has been said."

In the meantime, pro-military journalists and media outlets have urged their countrymen to rejoice after the army announced the invention will be available in June.

"Has the level of doubt reached such a high level on an international breakthrough? This will benefit all of humanity and solve a crisis that the medical community has not been able to fix for years. This is something we should celebrate," Maha Salim, a state media reporter, said on private network Tahrir TV.
