On the 2008 Nobel Prize for Medicine:
You were quite short and wrong on reporting Gallo vs.Montagnier, and the order was precisely that: Gallo against Montagnier. There are many, many scientific and journalistic reports that show what the reference below, by Dr. Robert Bazell, shows briefly but concisely: there was scientific fraud and there was unbecoming, scientifically unacceptable, inhuman and abusive behavior:
By Robert Bazell
Chief science and health correspondent
NBC News
Charges of stolen virus
But Gallo believed AIDS had to be caused by some kind of HTLV. At a meeting in a ski resort in Utah, Montagnier presented his findings. According to those present, Gallo abused him verbally with a memorable viciousness. Part of the problem was Montagnier’s limited command of both English and retroviruses. Clearly, Gallo sensed an impending battle and wanted to draw the first blood.
<<Immediately, the French responded with outraged statements and with lawsuits. It was not just a matter of pride. Hundreds of millions of dollars in patent rights for those tests were at stake. The French claimed repeatedly that Gallo had stolen their virus. A series of investigative newspaper reports eventually agreed with the charges about Gallo. Finally, a study by the U.S. National Institutes of Health came to the same conclusion.>>
Larvatus Prodeo, the Interview
Carmine Barre had to be physical witness to  the poker round between Dr. Paggano, the  Franco-American ANH scientist, against
his counterpart and bona fide competitor in  France, Dr. Professor Corniche. It had been  a poker match in which the French had been
asked to play against very biased odds. Had  it been boxing, it would have been with a  hand tied behind his back, so to speak. And  even so, the French Corniche went on to win  handsomely.
The American had all the time, as we say in  Spanish “the frying pan by the handle”:  prestigewise, facilities-wise, and  particularly peer review-wise.
Paggano in all of his prestige was the de  facto editor and peer reviewer of all virus  journals, where Corniche was going to  submit papers to. And Paggano was going to  find ways to delay Corniche’s publications,
to reduce them to lesser papers (like from  full papers to research “notes”
or letters), or send them to less  conspicuous part of the journal, as
he had relegated Corniche’s presentation to  a late Friday afternoon at Aspen in the  midst of the ski season. Only Corniche’s  most faithful disciples and friends were  there, including Carmine Barre who had
made sure that all were going to be there  en mass and plentiful to
Larvatus Prodeo, The Interview
listen to the most prominent  retrovirologist in Europe make a historic
And, by gosh, what he was saying! Dr.  Carmine Barre knew that we,
members of the scientific community, were  going to be presented right then and there  with the first absolute, unquestioned  scientific and immediately publishable  recognition of the existence of a human  retrovirus associated to the newly  diagnosed HAIDS!
Of course, Paggano was there too, sitting  in the front but absolutely devoted to  flirt with gorgeous Palette Paul, talking  into her ear and laughing in apparent and  complete disregard for what Corniche
was saying. Corniche did not have a chance.  Or wouldn’t have had a chance had it not  been by his extremely continental good
manners, his persistence, but particularly  because he was a better, not richer, not  flamboyant, only better scientist all the  way through, and very meticulous and shrewd  one in science but also a very good human  being. He was very well liked by his peers  and particularly by his pupils.
Barre could not believe his eyes and ears  when he saw Corniche facilities first at  L’Institut Supérieur de la Salubrité in  Alfort, France (French Higher Institute of  Public Health). Corniche occupied the  equivalent of a large closet compared to  the two floors facilities of Paggano at
the Gaithersburg Research campus.  Corniche’s collaborators did not
have desks but had to use the benches also  as writing tables. There was only one  ultracentrifuge, not only for his lab but  for the whole building where four  full-fledged laboratories/groups, called  institutes in the European system, operated  from.
Barre was fascinated by the closeness of  Corniche collaborators working very close  together, not only physically because of  the crowded facilities but because of the  spirituality of the environment. And when
the moment came to report, there was only  one isolation from only one lymph node of  only one patient, the specimen sent with  love from Central Africa to Corniche by one  of his beloved pupils. They
T. Manning
had submitted to a vote the idea of  submitting this very meager but
very solid piece of information.
Barre, in the midst of the first grain of  evidence that came his way, had acted
fast, taking patient Hartford to Rome once  he, to his chagrin, realized that
he was not going be able to do anything  else for Hartford. He immediately
took him to Dr. Corniche’s unit at the  L’Institut Supérieur de la Salubrité
in Alfort, France (French Higher Institute  of Public Health).
Paggano was and still is going to spend the  rest of his life presenting to
dismissive, uninterested, and yawning  audiences the slides copied from
his laboratory notes, telling the world  that he already had seventy-nine
isolations in progress. But in the world of  science, where the first that
publishes in the most prestigious refereed  journals of the trade wins, he still had  not a submission for publication, hoping to  verify and reverify even further his  results. Well, with reason because Paggano
had just recently boo-booed and not only  once but twice in other papers having to do  with retroviruses.
Well, even assuming that this were true,  and history was going to present
evidences to make us doubt of his veracity  in science as in other areas of life, risk  taking is part of the game, and in poker  showing one’s hand is the compulsory proof  before collecting one’s bounty and asking  to be paid. One plays at the table by only  bluffing, but winning requires absolute  proof that one’s hand is better. And how  one wins, in terms of beauty, intensity,
or numbers, is not the issue. It is who  reports first with solid evidence,
opened to the world for the world to be  able to replicate one’s results.
Under the rules of this science game,  Corniche won and won big. However, it did  not mean that in real terms he beat  Paggano. Not on the money, though, not  without the intervention of the US courts
and the presidents of both countries.
MW: Explain please the epilogue of this  political ending of the Corniche vs.  Paggano episode.
Larvatus Prodeo, The Interview
TM: Well, it is a very long legalistic  story, but, in summary, Paggano
had to eventually share his earnings; and  one still wonders how Paggano, a public  servant as Carmine Barre was, was able to  pocket royalty moneys for himself, with  Corniche’s institution. Paggano had used  Corniche’s virus for his experiments and  mostly for his development of the first  diagnostic tests. That would have been peculiar, but it became palpably fraudulent  since the origin of the viruses was always  assumed to be his, Paggano’s, own. It took  molecular biology, “detectivism”, to prove  him wrong and very wrong at that. Even more  amazingly, Paggano had used Corniche’s HIV  isolates to produce the famous, now  infamous, and beautiful electronographs
(electron microscope pictures) that  illustrated “his” papers.
MW: You had your contribution to Pagano´s  success, didn’t you?
TM: Yes, if you want to kindly call it that  way. And Paggano himself narrated it  somewhere in an attempt to give credit to a  good, I hope, piece of advice. Paggano  narrates how advice by his colleague and
adversary had been essential in his being  able to culture the viral agent of HAIDS,  the HIV. “The telephone conversation had  gone occurred more or less in the following  way (Carmine Barre knowing who his
interlocutor was and how he was had  recorded the call):
Hi Carmine how are you, I have a question  for you and since you like to answer tough  questions, here it is for you. Why is it  that every time I try to culture HIV on its  favorite substrate, lymphocytes, the
culture stops almost immediately?
Well, Carmine Barre answered in his most  professorial tone, that one that made  people so mad since he had this tendency to  be always right in the deep analytical  subjects; well, he said, don’t’ you think
you have a problem in trying to preserve  the culture substrate when by definition it  is being attacked by the virus?
There was silence on the other side of the  line.
T. Manning
How do I culture something that destroys  the substrates it-requires/
grows-in-itself? Well I use a substrate  that it extremely similar to the
original one but which it differs from by a  very particular element of difference. It  grows faster than the original and it is  abnormally resistant while at the same time  having eternal or at least abnormally
long life. I am talking about a cell as a  substrate then it closest but still  different replicate is a tumoral, or  malignant, cell. And since I am talking  about a tissue that is an extended tissue  or floating tissue (the blood) about one  particular type of cells (white blood  cells) and a specific subtype (lymphocytes)  then I get cells from a malignant tumor
of that particular type of cell or tissue a  leukemia or a lymphoma.
In my case I went to the most recognized  repository of tissues and cells (a “library  “), the American Type Culture Collection  (ATCC), and I looked for malignant T  lymphocytes obtained from a feline patient
condemned to death while dying of a  lymphoma.
And that was it, the rest is history.
XL-Book Summary (maximum of 2000 words)
~XL-Bio-Carmine Barre, including Story Synopsis or Summary
Dr. Taurus Manning is, quite unsuccessfully, trying to convince Ms. Moraima Willco that the character of Dr. Carmine Barre is not himself. Ms. Willco is interviewing Dr. Manning about his book, Larvatus Prodeo. Ms. Willco is a famous talk-show host and interviewer, who by the way could very well have been Mr. Brian Lam of C-SPAN himself.
Dr. Barre is a scientist and author of over 200 scientific publications. He has been a senior resident fellow with the O’Fallon & O’Fallon Foundation. Formerly, he had been with the Agency for the Nation’s Health (ANH) in Bolivar, West Virginia; the Weinstein Institution at the Pontifical University in Baltimore, state of Maryland; the University of the Midwest; and his alma mater, University of Riverside in California. He has been a consultant with different agencies of the League of Nations (LON) particularly the International Intelligence Organization for Health (IOH). His last assignment at the ANH included a detail at the Office of Science and Technology at the Office of the Vice President of the United States of America.
~Underground Bio
[(Note that this portion of Dr. Barre’s bio should have never been divulged except that in their characteristically vindictive, stupid, and criminal fashion, the political personnel closest to the Randolph White House—via an irresponsible and, from now on, infamous columnist—had exposed his intelligence cover as Dr. Carmine Barre published his results.)]
The common underlying thread is Carmine Barre’s early recruitment for covert medical operations into the military medical task force (MIF), a spin-off intelligence service of the National Agency for Intelligence (NAI). The MIF recruited Carmine from early on (1974) in his academic and international career. Among his much medicine-cum-intelligence contributions, Carmine Barre characterized the geopolitical contributing causes of the explosive epidemic of human AIDS (HAIDS).
He entered the United States of America’s (USA) world of academic research and intrigues while retaining his intelligence capacity. As an academic researcher, he was a close-range witness to the United States of America’s Dr. Paggano atrocities against his French colleague, Professor Corniche. He also saw the international scientific misbehaviors with the international smuggling of genetically engineered viruses in vaccines, a repeat of the equivalent misbehavior by the same scientist in the 1950s with the polio vaccine.
Nineteen hundred and ninety-nine was the year of the larvatus prodeo Cartesian reappearance of Dr. Carmine Barre. He miraculously and unexpectedly reappeared (in Latin, Larvatus Prodeo, the title of the book). He had apparently disappeared since 1996.
Under the aegis of the O’Fallon & O’Fallon Foundation, by now handled by Mrs. Lee O’Fallon alone since Mr. Yves O’Fallon’s death, Barre published his expose eliciting great uproar.
The series of personal events in the protagonist’s life that impinged in this story were as follows: he had married in 1965 and remained so until 1991 when his wife became entangled in an affair with a close friend of the couple; his spouse asked him to leave their common place in 1991 by writing in a napkin that he found in his place at the dining table at breakfast; and he did leave on that same day to never come back although repeatedly asked to do so by wife and children.
All contacts with her on his part ceased that day although as it was later found out he religiously listened intently to the messages that he got in his answering machine from his former spouse telling him of her life and always contemporizing. Carmine Barre refused to speak about the subject or denigrate on her although in the rare occasions that he talked about his former wife, he always insisted on referring to her as “a great woman and an even greater mother.”
Although under very different conditions, Carmine Barre’s former international intervention as a troubleshooter had prepared him well for this. Dr. Barre in 1977 had been the first to characterize the more and more prevalent episodes of neonatal (very early after-birth infants) mortality in third-world countries associated to infant formula. Infant formula were only produced and marketed by first-world countries. Barre’s travels to the different affected countries and his work in the Communité Helvetique at the headquarters and central laboratories of the BirdTree™ Ltd. Corporation had given him his first shocking contact with the callousness of the corporate and money marketers of the world. His colleague and research counterpart in those laboratories, Ms. Knüte Mariiá dr.rer.nat, suffered a mysterious accident in which she was seriously and almost fatally maimed. She had evolved from being Carmine’s detractor to become his ally, friend, and lover. During the Infant Murderer trial and simultaneous hearings by the IOH (International Intelligence Organization for Health), Dr. Carmine Barre worked side by side with the Hon. Stella Kenneth Murphy—at the time US congresswoman for her state, later to become United States of America (US) senator (she preferred the title of senatress), and vice president of the United States of America. In spite of her very Irish last names, and as it frequently seen in the meridian Americas, the congresswoman was of Latin American stock.
In later years in Africa, Dr. Carmine Barre was to be introduced to what had been a very early predecessor source of dissemination of the HAIDS pandemic: the massive hunting of wild monkeys; their massive breeding and slaughtering; the consumption of the carcasses, given to local employees as a form of payment; and the usage of monkey remains for ritualistic purposes. This extraordinary and massive contact between monkeys and humans constituted an amazing risk in terms of unknown pernicious tropical diseases.
The United States of America’s pharmaceutical giants had run this operation for the purposes of obtaining monkey kidneys for the massive and hasty manufacture to supply the insatiable needs of polio vaccine for the first-world countries. The original polio vaccine was essentially a raw soup of monkey kidneys in which the seeded poliovirus, by no means the only virus present, grew reluctantly (attenuation) and remained alive. Although never meant to be a vehicle of disease, but the opposite, and successfully at that, such concoction turned out to be an amazing vehicle for intercontinentally moving strange viruses. Furthermore, the monkey tissues, as live vaccine, had been massively reimported to Africa for the sham clinical experiments that had proven the efficacy, from the point of view of polio prevention, in hundreds of thousands of African children. Such was a requisite of the first-world countries before the vaccine could be given to white children all over the civilized world. The perpetrator of these studies was a United States of America’s naturalized scientist at the time, working from one of those pharmaceutical concerns. This scientist was to later on become director of one of the most prominent medical research centers in the United States of America, and as such Carmine Barre’s boss and nemesis.
As an epilogue to Dr. Carmine Barre’s miraculous reappereance (Larvatus Prodeo, the title of the book). he was nominated for and awarded the Niels Bohr International Prize for Services to Humanity.
