French Researchers Sue U.S. Over Who Isolated AIDS Virus
Chicago Tribune (CT) - Saturday December 14, 1985, Page: 3

"Very large sums" could be at stake in royalties from worldwide testing for AIDS, the institute's director, Raymond Dedonder, told a news conference.
"This isn't war with the Americans, not even with the (research) team in question. There is still cooperation and exchange of material and there are meetings on AIDS almost every week." source...
Allegations Overshadow Scientific Accomplishments
Almost a year before Gallo announced his findings, Montagnier at the Pasteur Institute had identified a virus he called LAV, though he was not able to prove that it caused AIDS.

The Dangers of Trial by Dingell
by Bernadine Healy, MD
Columbus, Ohio - In 1991, shortly after becoming director of the National Institutes of Health, I was summoned to Capitol Hill by the staff of Representative John Dingell, the powerful Democratic chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The panel's Oversight and Investigations subcommittee, which he also led, wanted to discuss draft reports being prepared by the fraud office at N.I.H. on two high-profile scientific misconduct investigations.
In one, Dr. Thereza Imanishi-Kari, an immunologist, was accused of fabricating data to support a 1986 article in the journal "Cell." Her research had been conducted in collaboration with David Baltimore, a Nobelist who vehemently defended the findings. In the other, Robert Gallo, and Mikulas Popovic of the N.I.H., were accused of falsifying data in a study of the virus that causes AIDS. source...
