Legal Question Presented: What is the current legal status of recommending Nano Silver as an intervention during the current Ebola Outbreak?
Legal Principles: International and national law set out regulations regarding the standard practice of medicine. In most countries, physicians are restricted by their licenses to the practice of standard medicine. Physicians can rely on the standards of practice in ordinary circumstances. Similarly, regulations have been developed regarding medical experimentation on individuals. However, during a humanitarian emergency, other concerns become more pressing.
The World Health Organization (WHO), which has declared an international health emergency today, repeated these international principles in a declaration regarding Ebola and “unapproved interventions…”*
These restrictions must be considered in light of the current Ebola Outbreak and with regard to the 2009 declassification of the US Air Force sponsored in vitro Ebola / Nano Silver study that proved the effectiveness of Nano Silver as a virus replication inactivator: http://drrimatruthreports.com/smoking-gun-us-suppressing-ebola-therapy-since-2009/
I have reviewed the Dr. Rima Nano Silver Ebola Clinical Test Protocol. This document, provided to the Ebola “front line” states, shows that the test proposal meets these international standards. Several West African states have indicated in writing their willingness to allow Clinical Tests with patients suffering from Ebola, pursuant to the Protocol. A copy of the Protocol may be obtained here: http://tinyurl.com/ebolaprotocol
The purpose of this Memorandum is to assure the cooperating physicians and the public health authorities of West Africa that, in addition to the United States FDA approval of Nano Silver as a surface disinfectant, the provision of food-grade Nano Silver for ingestion by the patients should be considered a humanitarian exception to any current restrictions, as allowed by the WHO pronouncement.
The Protocol requires informed patient consent and consideration. The safety of Nano Silver, which is self-sterilizing and can be stored a ambient temperature, under the circumstances of an outbreak of hemorrhagic infection, is not in serious question.
Thus the primary concerns expressed by WHO are met.
It is therefore my professional opinion that the Foundation’s Nano Silver Ebola Initiative conforms to this non-governmental organization (NGO)’s Mission, as its expressive association, and that is is ethical for physicians to cooperate with the Clinical Test as provided in the Protocol.
