H., J. Korean Med. Ass., 17, 427-431(1974); Chung, T. H. et al., Yonsei Med. J., 17, 131-135(1976)]. From US patent 6,274,356 Chung, et al., August 14, 2001 http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fne... Leprosy is a bacterial infection! So - Tubercin is effective on cancer AND bacterial infections. To extend that teaching to include viral infection as well seems no big deal to me - certainly NOT an inventive step. Ask Shapiro! He's willing to take $30K and run. he knows the score!!!! The SEC Must Go! And jail shorters.
