Aids experimentation on caged rhesus monkeys in Boston

Aids experimentation on caged rhesus monkeys in Boston

The diseases which the authors described as Aids infected 42 rhesus monkeys in an uncovered outdoor cage in Davis, between 1976 and 1981. General symptoms were diagnosed for the animals involved without any figures or specific diagnoses.

That can't be checked is a great importance, since the impression was created that an Aids agent was sexually transmitted from the infected females to healthy rhesus monkeys. 

In August 1981, after the removal of other monkeys, nine young symptom-free females out of the original 42 rhesus monkeys were left in a cage, but six healthy males and 49 healthy females from other cages were put together.

Thereafter, 558 healthy rhesus monkeys were observed for comparison purposes in six adjacent, likewise uncovered cages. 

The ratio of one experimental animal to nine control animals is unusual, leading one to conclude that the scientists responsible also anticipated symptoms to appear in surroundings.

Neither the unmentioned diseases of the 42 rhesus monkeys initially suffering from immunodeficiency and their spread among the donor group of nine nor the diseases of the infected slaughtered animals would allow the diagnoses of Aids.

Those who made this diagnoses must have known that the animals had been infected with an immunodeficiency virus.

Aids-cofactor transmitted in the air

The 55 caged animals were partly infected with this virus and CMV, since 1981. Before this, suddenly from June 1979 to June 1980, 30% more monkeys died than two years previously on average in the Primate Research Center (NERPRC), near Boston.

All suffered from inflammation of the small and large intestine. Two showed deposits of protein substances (amyloidosis) in the small intestine, which had hitherto never been observed.

This indicates that they swallowed special inflammatory substances. The monkeys died of acquired immunodeficiency - Aids. The monkeys in three adjacent cages died simultaneously.

Previous diseases, sex, and origin imported or born in captivity played no part. Aids-releasing substances are, therefore, transferred by air. At the same time, 500 seals died from pneumonia along the coast in the vicinity of Boston.

Scientists who were involved in examining those seals suffered from purulent conjunctivitis. It is possible that they were affected by substances which had also affected the monkey in the open-air enclosures.
