Bernard Bihari, MD, was the discoverer of the clinical effects of Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) in humans. In his groundbreaking clinical trial of patients with HIV/AIDS at Downstate Medical Center in 1985-86, Dr. Bihari discovered the significant effectiveness of LDN in protecting the battered immune systems of those who were infected. Equipped with the clinical trial knowledge, he entered private practice in an attempt to counter the then untreatable disease by using LDN -- and did so in some cases dramatically.
Dr. Bihari, by 2003, had been treating 350 AIDS patients using LDN in conjunction with accepted AIDS therapies. During 7 years of treatments, between 1996 and 2003, over 85% of his patients showed no detectable levels of the HIV virus -- a much higher success rate than most current AIDS treatments, and with no significant side effects. It is also worth noting that many HIV/AIDS patients have been living symptom-free for years, while taking only LDN with no other medications. Two studies in the African country of Mali, demonstrated LDN's successful use in HIV/AIDS, as published in October, 2011 in the Journal of AIDS and HIV Research.
Additionally, in the mid-1990s, Dr. Bihari found that patients in his practice with cancer, such as lymphoma or pancreatic cancer, also benefited from LDN. People with autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, also often showed prompt control of disease activity while taking LDN.
