As you may know, the Lipkin study is supposed to be the last word on HGRV research. There are serious concerns about this study, not least that a large amount of our miniscule research budget is to be spent on it. Now it seems that Judy M is excluded, and Frank Ruscetti is also not involved, the two scientists who actually know how to find the virus. Also consider that we also know, due to the accidental infection of children with X-SCID, (see page 8 and page 10 -11, section VII and VIII) that it is accepted that HGRVs cause disease in humans. And that the paper Paprotka et al. did not in any way present an argument in support of an impossible recombination event in a cell line. The letter below explains many of the issues as to why this study is superfluous and only a hinder to scientific progress. Please help in allowing science to progress without interference by sending this letter. ? Some contact details are below. If anyone has a better idea of who to send to please post it. It may be good to send to all of them if people can. Obviously the higher ups are more important. Francis Collins is director of the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland 20892, USA.
