The Perth Group ask: ‘Is the dissident science “highly questionable”, “embarrassing” and “damaging”?’
The Perth Group have just published a new article: ‘Is the dissident science “highly questionable”, “embarrassing” and “damaging”?’
It’s online at http://www.tig.org.za/EPE_SEP14.pdf.
It includes a close look at the science and the ethics of Etienne de Harven and Henry Bauer.
Concerning Bauer’s science and ethics, two other pieces just published at http://www.tig.org.za/RA.htm may also be of interest:
1. A letter to Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons editor Lawrence Huntoon about Bauer’s articles ‘Incongruous Age Distributions of HIV Infections and Deaths from HIV Disease: Where Is the Latent Period Between HIV Infection and AIDS?’ and ‘HIV Tests Are Not HIV Tests’, published in 2008 and 2010 (too long for publication as a letter, Huntoon responded). It’s posted at http://www.tig.org.za/Bauer_letter_to_JPandS.pdf.
2. Perth Group founder Eleni Papadopulos-Eleopulos’s comments on the draft of Bauer’s article ‘Iatrogenic Harm following “HIV” Testing’, sent to her for peer review by JPandS editor Huntoon. As with his previous article that he got Huntoon to send her to review (see her ‘P.S.’), Bauer ignored her comments concerning both his science and his ethics, and Huntoon proceeded to publish Bauer’s article as is, without heeding them either. Her comments are posted at http://www.tig.org.za/Bauer_Iatrogenic_Harm__EPE_peer_review_comments.pdf.
