Immune-Assist 247
Apr 1, 2004

Dear Dr's,

I recently read an article at which about a new trial being put on by Aloha Medicinals Incorporated of Maui, Hawaii.

The drug is called Immune-Assist 247.

Have you heard of this and is this a legitimate trial? Any comments on the drug itself?

Thank you ahead, AO

Response from Dr. Pierone

It is possible that they may be planning a clinical trial in Ghana. But since they state they have run out of product here and are struggling to meet demand, they will really have to ramp up production to supply 1000 to 2000 people in Ghana. Perhaps they will use the income derived from American consumers (just 50 dollars per month) to do these future studies. Personally, I would wait for the placebo controlled studies in Ghana to be completed before making a decision.

The drug itself sounds like a mixture of natural source chemicals. Short of a study, there is no way to tell if it is safe and effective. Let's see what the study shows.

Is stopping meds good advice?
