Nano-Tech Gone Wild: Bill Gates Funds Development of Cloth That Delivers Contraceptive and HIV Drugs

Bill Gates is at it again, throwing money at any researcher with a claim to fame and everything to gain by using scientific advances to prevent as many babies as possible from being born. Soft kill drugs in the pretext of protection is the common theme for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Cheap, effective contraceptive and HIV pharmaceuticals are now the objectives soon to target the third world.

A University of Washington team has developed a platform they say simultaneously offers contraception and prevents HIV. Electrically spun cloth with nanometer-sized fibers can dissolve to release drugs, providing a platform for cheap medical use. The research was published this week in the Public Library of Science’s open-access journal PLoS One. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation last month awarded the UW researchers almost $1 million to pursue the technology.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has committed 10 billion dollars over the next ten years to make it the most aggressive decade ever to roll out new vaccines to poor nations around the world. The commitmentwill also effectively create widespread fertility problems across vaccinated populations.

Bill Gates told a recent TED conference, an organization which is sponsored by one of the largest toxic waste polluters on the planet, that vaccines need to be used to reduce world population figures in order to solve global warming and lower CO2 emissions.

“We have the drugs to do that. It’s really about delivering them in a way that makes them more potent, and allows a woman to want to use it,” said author Kim Woodrow, a UW assistant professor of bioengineering.

Electrospinning uses an electric field to catapult a charged fluid jet through air to create very fine, nanometer-scale fibers. The fibers can be manipulated to control the material’s solubility, strength and even geometry. Fibers may be even better at delivering medicine than existing technologies such as gels, tablets or pills.

Nano-microchips invisible to the naked eye are a reality that are already being hosted in wide-range of applications.

No high temperatures are involved, so the method is suitable for heat-sensitive molecules. The fabric can also incorporate large molecules, such as proteins and antibodies, that are hard to deliver through other methods.

The final material is a stretchy fabric. “This method allows controlled release of multiple compounds,” said coauthor Cameron Ball. “We were able to tune the fibers to have different release properties.”

One of the fabrics they made dissolves within minutes, potentially offering users immediate, discrete protection against unwanted pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases.

Another dissolves gradually over a few days, providing an option for sustained delivery, more like the birth-control pill,  to provide contraception and guard against HIV.

The fabric could incorporate many fibers to include more than one anti-HIV drug. Mixed fibers could be designed to release drugs at different times to increase their potency, like the prime-boost method used in vaccines.

The electrospun cloth could be inserted directly in the body or be used as a coating on vaginal rings or other products.

This is the first study to use nanofibers for vaginal drug delivery. Critics claim that no long-term studies have been established to assess safety which could pose serious health implications to third world countries where the cloths are targeted for use.

Further research is needed into the risks associated with the growing field of nanotechnology manufacture. A vast and rapidly expanding array of engineered nano-products are flooding the consumer market unregulated as evidence of toxicities accumulate.

The team is focusing on places like Africa, but the technology could be used in the U.S. or other countries to offer birth control.

The team will use the new Gates Foundation grant to evaluate the versatility and feasibility of their system. The group will hire more research staff and buy an electrospinning machine to make butcher-paper sized sheets. The expanded team will then spend a year testing combinations that deliver two antiretroviral drugs and a hormonal contraceptive, and then six months scaling up production of the most promising materials.

No long-term studies have been planned before officially releasing the new drug technology to the public. The public will be the long-term study.

    May I say that while I do not endorse state limits on reproduction, I do support information that cautions the “fertile” about the hazard of child rearing and parenting in this godawful environment{today}. The government and its stepchild,education are extremely malfunctional. Do you want to {re}produce welfare owned children? Until the corrupt corporate control model is replaced by voluntary sustainable communal unity projects I call for the young fertiles to say NO to breeding for the Man[banker royalty slaveowners]. This is the revolution we needed in the sixties.

    The contraceptive clothing was invented in the 1970′s under a general label of ‘Cool gear’. Commonly purchased through catalogues on the ‘never never’ the ‘gear’ would usually be gawdy enough to repel anyone ‘looking for lurve’. That’s why Jimmy Savile had to force himself on his victims. It wasn’t that they didn’t like him, it was just his dress code.

  3. Ann says:

    Nano-tech gone wild, indeed, but there is no mention of the possible carcinogenic effects nano-particles accumulating in the human body. I guess, we’ll just have to wait until enough people succumb to the effect of these particles and epidemiologists conduct their studies before we’ll find out, as usual.

  4. Tamara says:

    So if I don’t trust a pill or injection, why the heck would I trust a piece of cloth? It’s still a chemical and if I don’t trust the chemical in the first place I’m definatly NOT going to wear it as clothing!

    What happens if it gets wet? if it gets into the environment, into drinking water? How do we know these nanoparticles are safe? what if they damage the animals/plants or make people horribly sick over time? What if it ends up killing people/ animals/ plants? In this rush to stop overpopulation (which I don’t believe is happening, see the website for Overpopulation is A Myth), we are introducing things into the environment, and into human life, that is NOT natural and could cause a great deal of damage to our health and other creatures health. The environment, and our bodies, are having things introduced they are not used to or designed to interact with. This is very, very dangerous and we have to stop this madness!!!

    The real problem, is how will you know?
    You would never knowingly buy / use poisoned clothes but how will you tell?
    In the Rhodesian bush war, they impregnated clothes with poisons, and then put them on the top shelves at the back of the store. Only the Terrorists/ Freedom fighters (take your pick) would steal the clothes and obviously the store owner would never sell them.
    I don’t remember whether they were ever effective.

    if bill gates is behind it you can count me out. he is as corrupt as they come and I wish he would just go live where ever he wants and leave the rest of the world alone but I know his little ego won’t have any of that.

    Where is the document which shows HIV causes AIDS?

    Answer: there is no such document.
