to develop treatment
A doctor claims that he developed a successful drug
to combat Ebola
with the U.S. Army at
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
"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
"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,
the New York Times
the Washington Post
the LA Times,
Richard Davis to CNN
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
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
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...
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
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
"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.
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
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."
