Peptide T & Dallas Buyers Club: What the Washington Post got Wrong

There has been a steady stream of interest in this topic as Dr Pert’s drug called Peptide T was featured in the 2013 movie. She and I (M Ruff) have spent many years researching this experimental drug for HIV, Neuro-AIDS, Pain, and Alzheimers Disease.  A few months after Dallas Buyers Club premiered the Wash Post ran an article in which some of those interviewed repeated a host of misinformation on the effectiveness of this experimental medicine and the research behind it. Ron Woodroof, the central character in the story, used Peptide T and in an interview he gave in “Dallas Life Magazine” in Aug, 1992 claimed it kept him alive. I think Ron had good reason to believe that and I have pulled together the key facts from peer-reviewed scientific articles that were left out of both the movie, and the Washington Post article, as a short slide deck. I tell why this drug is still relevant to HIV Neuro-AIDS in 2016, and for that matter Alzheimers etc.   Here’s the link:   Dallas Buyers Club & PT
