What I find interesting in the context of the works of the doctors Mikovits, Lombardi and Ruscetti is that no scientist has tried to properly take their work apart. Not Abbie Smith of erv-blog fame, not Dusty Miller – certainly not Coffin, certainly not Racaniello and most certainly not Dr. Alberts from Science. Lipkin is positively oblivious to what Mikovits has done.
Passing off VP62 plasmid as one's own isolates is plagiarism.
The 100% peak shift is the result of falsification, not a process the human body.
Table 4 from the "addendum" can realistically only be explained by fabrication.
VP62 has been talked about. But are there any consequences? Except a retraction and Mikovits getting sacked? An inquiry that would clear things up? Find a verdict? What about Ruscetti? Or even Lombardi?
The 100% peak shift has been mentioned once in the comments of erv's blog. Once. In the comment section. I am deeply impressed by Abbie Smith's courage in going up against Dr. Ruscetti, while at the same time restraining herself from indulging herself with moronic ME/CFS-patients. It would be a lot easier for her to get into a bitch fight with some deluded patients and ignore the possible fraud of Dr. Ruscetti – thank GOD she is not doing that, and thank god she has her priorities set straight.
Table 4? Nobody cares. Nobody gives a fuck. Nobody has really looked at Lombardi 2009, Mikovits 2010 and everything they published in that context. There are most certainly more other clues to their fraud in there. Table 4 is easy. Really easy. Even I get it.
"The science will sort itself out!". Yet it's the 95% ignorant scientists who make the fraudulent 1% look good. The 4% who care are too chicken to really do anything.
I don't know what I want most: An apology? An explanation? Honest words? The declaration of all acts of falsification and fabrication? Justice and punishment? Quite frankly, punishment is not high on my list, I'd rather have honest words – but if there is not some form of light being shed on this affair by the major actors, I will quite gladly settle on punishment instead. It's a pipe dream. There will be no honest words. No explanation. No shedding of light. And no punishment. Most certainly no justice.
