Yep, I agree.
I'm not really up to speed on the arguments. It seems like semantics is part of the problem.

People can have HIV and not have AIDS. Aids is a diagnosis when you happen to have HIV and other diseases. The AIDS numbers jumped rapidly in woman when cervical cancer was added to the list. We then were told that the AIDS virus had exploded amongst the female population. More diseases have been added to the list.

They are then called AIDS patients. And treated as such. I don't know but something seems wrong about that.

I've also heard that that HIV is often misdiagnosed?

I'm not qualified to argue it. So I won't. But I've heard some strong cases.

Your selective and deceptive "quotes" can't buttress a false position.

There is no such thing as an "AIDS" virus. I can't prove a negative. Show me one.

By definition, AIDS ( a "syndrome") is a collection of symptoms and observations that are related to failure of the immune system to attack otherwise defensible pathogens.

It's as if the immune system is "worn out," or gives up" to normal crap that can turn into something bad, when it wouldn't otherwise. It is "acquired."

AIDS is not a necessary consequence of HIV, although the virus renders the host susceptible to one or more of any infections that most people easily fend off. "AIDS" is a handy tag or label to seek funding and attention. In and of itself, it is meaningless. It is nothing more than a DESCRIPTION!

Happy?

I'm not debating that a syndrome is diagnosed as a combination of symptoms. Those symptoms are often tied to one underlying cause. In the case of AIDS, the cause is a destructiong of CD4+ T-cells. HIV destroys these cells, and when untreated, leads to AIDS.

I don't understand why you're resorting to ad hominems when I've not done the same to you. I'm stating the well-researched, well-supported medical position.

If HIV were NOT the cause of AIDS, why do retroviral medications work? Can you explain that for me?

A patient is diagnosed as having AIDS when the titer (a measure of particle concentration in the blood) drops below 400. Anything above this is considered "immunosuppressed". Anything below 400 is "immunodeficient". Many, many things can cause someone to become immunocompromised or immunodeficient, from congenital leukemias to genetic defects in metabolism. However, the term given SPECIFICALLY to the immunodeficiency caused by HIV is AIDS, as it is "acquired" (hence the A in the acronym), rather than "developed", like a random chance infection.

Ok, my ignorance has muddled the claims.

The prize is for the isolation of pure HIV. oops.

The dissenters have differing opinions. Some claim that HIV has not been properly isolated. Some do. Some say HIV does not cause AIDS.

But have the original references that conclusively connect HIV to AIDS actually been found as Kary claims? or is it all after the rules where set?

Anyone wanna crack?

He made his claim in the mid 1990s, I believe. HIV had been imaged prior to that and after that. In all actuality, from what I've read about Dr. Mullis, hsi claims have more to do with his association with Dr. Duesberg, another HIV skeptic. Dr. Dueberg also served as an advisor to the South African government relating to their policy of denying antiretroviral drugs to their public health program, resulting the hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Duesberg and Mbeki

I take it the prize is still up because it hasn't been claimed yet?

There seem to be quite a few of them.

PROBLEMS WITH ISOLATING HIV

How can we best help Africa? How can we set priorities aimed at bringing under control what is described as an AIDS epidemic? For twenty years, all AIDS research has been based on the HIV hypothesis. Do we now have reasons to question this hypothesis? Yes, because there is a major problem with isolation and purification of HIV. The major problem being that, in spite of innumerable claims to the contrary, this retrovirus has never been isolated nor purified in a scientifically acceptable manner that would satisfy the classic requirements of virology.


hivskeptic.wordpress.com...

Speech was give in 2003.

Not enough retrovirus markers?

Seems like it is a valid argument. Academics rarely agree I suppose.

Read through the link you posted. They "contamination" they're discussing is from the host cell, not other antigens. They are concerned because having host cell contamination in cultures would make it harder to create pure samples, presumably for the vaccines that were beginning development at the time of that writing.

No where in that link does it suggest that these contaminations call into question HIV's link to AIDS.

Posted the wrong link sorry. Fixed now.

Well, I am just a layman. When I hear a number of academics question whether it has actually been isolated to the conditions met for virology.

All I can do is say is that the issue it is not resolved. If the egg heads can't agree. We won't resolve it here.

From what I understand, it can't be clearly categorized as a retrovirus?
Not sure.

I'm just willing to listen to the arguments and make what I can out of my limited knowledge in the area. Not Much I afraid.

An incredibly small minority don't believe HIV has been clearly isolated, sure. I would wager this minority is even smaller than those who don't think we landed on the moon, or those who think Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya.

In short, there will always be a loud, fringe minority who think strange things for various reasons. A PhD or an MD are not an exemption from nuttery.

I don't think that is a fair comparison. I don't think these guys are nut jobs. And consensus does not equal scientific fact. Perhaps they have higher standards for empirical evidence?

Then they should probably provide said evidence. My side already has.

Collect the prize? seems fair, isolate the virus according to the original requirements. And the professor above doesn't seem to think so?
It's not about providing evidence it's the lack of it that seems to be the problem.

Well, then I think they need to explain why antriretroviral treatment targeted specifically to the RNA sequence and protein inside HIV works for HIV/AIDS patients.

Sounds like they need to isolate HIV to classify it as a retrovirus.
Don't you want the cash?

Unfortunately, it's already been done. That's what the 2008 Nobel Prize was given for, the discover of the retrovirus causing HIV/AIDS, as well as the first oncovirus.

Barré-Sinoussi and Montagnier discovered HIV in the lymph nodes of recently infected patients. It was being produced in large quantities in white blood cells and it induced the death of cells of a kind that was missing in patients suffering from AIDS. HIV was like a chameleon. Each patient carried a unique virus variant, which could hide in the host cell genome. Barré-Sinoussi and Montagnier's discovery explained the progression of the disease and its communicability, enabling them to establish the connection between HIV and AIDS.


Sorry must have missed the part where he isolated it. Says it's like a chameleon, a unique variant carried by everyone, hiding in host cells.
Doesn't sound to isolated to me?

Of course you'd never see it in the U.S. the propaganda machine is too great.

German Court Rules "HIV never Isolated"


Judge Hackmann announced the statement of the "Bundesgesundheitsbehrde",
the Federal German Health Authorities, which says that in connection with
AIDS there has never been isolated a virus (Dr. Marcus,
Robert-Koch-Institute (RKI) Berlin). The judge figured out that the
German Bundestag had been backing the lie of the Federal Health
Authorities (RKI, Dr. Marcus, 9.3.95) about a successful isolation of a
virus in connection with AIDS in the course of a petition (Art. 17,
Constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany, Pet.
5-13-15-2002-010526).
The trial was based on actions of the defendant which were caused by the
misleading statement made by the RKI (Dr. Marcus) on the 9th March 1995,
that there were photographs of the isolated HI-virus inside the
publications of Montagnier (1983) and Gallo (1984). The judge proved the
untruthfulness of this statement using Dr. Marcus' statement itself. The
court imposed a suspended sentence of 8 months of jail because of
attempted coercion of the authorities to adhere and act according to law
and order.


So many Nut jobs.

They say it's "like a chameleon" because the outer segment of it's coating proteins can mutate, which is why patients can become less responsive to specific antiretroviral drugs, and is also why patients typically take cocktails and routinely have their viral load tested. Again, you're misunderstanding the science in the article and using this misunderstanding to see things that aren't there.


Of course you'd never see it in the U.S. the propaganda machine is too great.

German Court Rules "HIV never Isolated"


This site also provides information on the "Aushwitz hoax", "earth energies", and "orgone". This should give you some idea of how reputable a site whale.to is. I couldn't find any mention of this ruling in any reputable site, German or English. All I could find were reference to the original whale.toi article or forum posts.

So no isolation then?

You like to attack everything but the actual subject matter don't you?
What about the court case? was it fake?

How about this question then, has HIV ever been isolated, purified and cultured? The gold standard? These are the conditions met for virology.

Has it been done? I can't find it.

I've already shown that it's been isolated, both through papers and images, as well as a Nobel being awarded for said isolation. I don't know how else I can prove it to you beyond sending you a sample to look at yourself, but that's both illegal and silly.

You tell me. It's your piece of evidence, which means you need to verify it's veracity. I couldn't find any solid support for it on a government o site, a .org, or a .edu, which are typically more reliable as far as public records go. Why don't you give it a go, since YOU posted it?

Yes, it has been isolated. Several times, in fact. As I said yesterday in my very first post, a quick PubMed search yields the very papers that show this isolation:

HIV/AIDS isolation:

HTLV Isolation

Links to new HTLV and AIDS

Childhood AIDS linked to retrovirus (HIV)

Isolation of HTLV (HIV) Type III

Isolation of AIDS-related retrovirus from cerebrospinal fluid

Isolation of HTLV/HIV from cervix of women with AIDS

Those papers are all from the first half of the 1980s. Since then, we have gotten even clearer pictures, those these isolates were clear enough and strong enough to show both the existence of the virus, as well as it's link to AIDS. As I said before, a quick search through PubMed.com will give you more literature than you can shake a stick at, all from peer-reviewed journals viewed worldwide, both by dissenters and otherwise.
