Alex Russell versus Lancet on HIV Isolation


April 27, 1999

Dear Mr Russell:

I have shown your letter and magazines to Richard Horton and we have been pondering here about your suggestion of a viewpoint. I am afraid that our conclusion is that we would not wish to publish a view point along the lines you suggest. We did, indeed, give Jay Levy a platform in our view point section and we also published correspondence as a result of that. We therefore feel that at this point in time we would not wish to provide more space for this particular topic. I am sorry that I cannot be more helpful.

Yours sincerely

Stephanie Clark Ph D, Senior Editor.

Dear Stephanie Clark:

Thank you for your letter of 27 April, 1999. Please could you give me the real reasons why you and Richard Horton do “not wish to publish a view point along the lines” that I suggested? The Lancet’s ‘view point’ space is for dissenting or controversial points-of-view which are independent of your editorial bias! Why are you censoring my legitimate questions concerning the non-isolation, non-purification, and non-existence of the putative ‘HIV’? I even invited you to publish responses from Robin Weiss, Richard Tedder and Robert Gallo to try and prove the existence of ‘HIV’. What could be more ‘democratic’ than that? Please reconsider my view point.

Yours sincerely,

Alex Russell.
