to develop treatment




A doctor claims that he developed a successful drug to combat Ebola with the U.S. Army at Fort Detrick, Maryland, but that the research was inexplicably shut down two weeks before the first outbreak of the virus in West Africa.

Richard C. Davis, M.D., a former flight surgeon with the U.S. Navy, told Infowars that he was leading a project to develop a drug called RC-2Beta, which according to Davis works,

"at the core of our cells to enhance mitochondrial efficiency and promote gene signaling to stimulate cellular self-repair and pathogen destruction."

In the fall of 2013, Davis' company (Ogenx Therapeutics) began collaborating with the US Army at their Level 4 bioweapons facility at Ft. Detrick, Maryland to develop the drug, with astounding success.

According to Davis, the drug,

"Killed four of the world's deadliest viruses in a dose-dependent fashion. The Army also noted that uninfected cells in the same cultures were untouched by the drug (i.e., it was non-toxic)."

"Everyone was very excited about these results since there has never been a broad-spectrum anti-viral drug that killed so many different viruses without affecting normal (uninfected) cells in this way," writes Davis.

However, after the Army initially indicated to Davis and his team that they were ready to move ahead quickly with further testing, communication completely ceased.






Army research data shows effectiveness of RC-2Beta in fighting the Ebola virus

"Our once close communications and cordial relationship with the Ft. Detrick team went totally and inexplicably silent. Our phone calls went unanswered and emails unreturned," writes Davis, adding he was 'stunned' when the first reports of Ebola emerged in Africa just two weeks later.

The doctor also desperately contacted mainstream media outlets in an effort to get the story out, including,

  • CNN

  • ABC


  • CBS

  • the New York Times

  • the Washington Post

  • the LA Times,

...and others.

Richard Davis‎ to CNN


Dear Sirs:

I am the CEO of OgenX Therapeutics, a small biotech in Florida.


We have been working with the US Army at Ft. Detrick since last September testing one of our experimental anti-viral drugs called RC-2Beta, which has shown amazing promise in killing Ebola, Marburg and other deadly viruses in vitro at their BSL 4 lab. I can provide this compelling data upon request.

Over the past 3 months, I have personally texted, emailed, faxed, and called numerous officials, over two dozen times, at the CDC, and the WHO, in order to obtain their help in exporting our drug to Africa under the World Health Organization's experimental drug treatment program.

Despite these multiple efforts, I have not received a response of any kind from any of them to date.

Given the current state of affairs, their continued silence is inexplicable, especially given the current projections of 1.4 million people becoming infected by the end of January ...

As a subject matter expert, I do not believe that our medical infrastructure is adequately prepared to meet the Ebola challenge... With the exception of a handful of facilities in the US, none of our hospitals or clinics are equipped to deal with a Level 4 pathogen.


This is especially true if, as some experts are now suggesting, Ebola is mutating to have an airborne transmission capability.

We must be realistic and become more aggressive. Numerous issues need to be addressed immediately: Border security, flight and travel restrictions, quarantine measures, and many other common sense strategies must be implemented if we are to have any chance in arresting the spread of this disease.

More importantly, as an ex Naval Flight Surgeon, I am deeply concerned for the safety of our troops as they are now mustering for transport into the African hot zones, given that we are still uncertain about Ebola's transmission status.

I would appreciate any help that CNN could offer to bring this situation to the public's awareness. The message - There is hope, but we must act quickly.

Obviously, we have developed a significant amount of information on the safety and efficacy of RC-2Beta in studies in both animals and humans. We would be happy to share this with you.

Please let me know if you want to help...

Dr. D


After making initial contact and agreeing to provide documents, Davis was subsequently stonewalled and every outlet dropped the story.

Davis then turned to Florida Congressman David Jolly in an effort to reopen lines of communication with Ft. Detrick, a process that is ongoing.

While health authorities and the media aggressively promoted ZMapp and other less successful drugs and vaccines to fight Ebola, Davis set about anxiously contacting the World Health Organization, which in June announced that experimental treatments for Ebola would be fast tracked.

"Out of concern and frustration, I made it my personal priority to obtain the two necessary documents (Humanitarian Use Exemption and Export Certificate) needed to ship our drug to the medical teams working desperately in Africa," writes Davis.


"So I began calling, and writing and faxing everyone who might be able to help. Since May, I have reached out over 200 times to every head of every organization in the world involved with this crisis.


This includes,

  • the World Health Organization

  • the Centers for Disease Control

  • the various teams at the FDA

  • the National Institutes of Health


  • multiple private relief and aid organizations (like Doctors Without Borders),

...and dozens just like them.


The response was always the same… Silence…"

The doctor also slammed the Obama administration's response to the Ebola outbreak.

"The response of the American government has been patently absurd," writes Davis.


"Every protocol that has been put in place to prevent the spread of the disease has been ignored. Our borders remain open, infected patients are being brought into our hospitals, and no truly effective countermeasures have been erected to stem the tide of infectious risk."

Davis' conclusion on the government's handling of the Ebola crisis and the fact that a potentially successful cure for the virus was shut down by Ft. Detrick immediately before the outbreak in West Africa left him to draw a sobering conclusion.

"I am left to conclude that America's leadership is either guilty of gross misconduct, dereliction of duty, criminal negligence or worse - treason," writes Davis, warning that the "crisis will undoubtedly spiral out of control" if the advice of incompetent public health authorities, the government and the media continues to be followed unquestionably.

Davis boasts an impressive Curriculum Vitae, having authored over 400 patents and trademarks while also being awarded commendations from the Chief of Naval Operations.

"The inescapable conclusions of negligence or corruption or both cannot be simply swept aside for the sake of political correctness when the lives of every one of us are at stake," writes Davis.


"Ebola is real. It is here, now. There is no more time to waste."
