How Fauci Killed Thousands of HIV Patients: The Death Mantra of "randomized, placebo, controlled"
Just feel the deja vu shivers as Professor Risch describes Fauci and his addiction to the mantra of 'randomized, placebo, controlled" back in 1987.
Dr RIsch alerts us to the facts behind the otherwise 'whitewashed Fauci condemnation of thousands of AIDS patients to death.
Sean Strub, the founder of POZ magazine and Executive Director, Sero Project writes of this tragic situation in the HuffPost, "Whitewashing AIDS History", pointing the finger of guilt directly at the very same Angel of Death, Dr. Fauci.
Strub recounts how "slow the federal government was"., as it is today with Covid, still under Fauci and his thumb, "in publicizing the use of Bactrim and other sulfa drugs to prevent PCP (the pneumonia that was then the leading killer of people with AIDS) in addition to its long-time and well-known use to treat PCP."
He writes, "In 1987, pioneering AIDS activist Michael Callen begged Fauci for help in promoting the use of Bactrim as PCP prophylaxis and issuing interim guidelines urging physicians to prophylax those patients deemed at high risk for PCP."
When Callen and others, including Dr. Barry Gingell, a medical advisor to Gay Men’s Health Crisis, met with Fauci to plead for his support, they didn’t just say, as Fauci has since disingenuously claimed, that there was “this preliminary activity and some small trials,” as Fauci claims.
They explained that many frontline AIDS physicians, following the lead of Dr. Joseph Sonnabend, were already using Bactrim effectively to prevent the recurrence of PCP. The science was clear. A decade before, clinical trials by Dr. Walter Hughes had proven its efficacy in preventing PCP in other immune-compromised populations, like children with leukemia."
If ever there was a group in urgent need of a recommendation for Bactrim prophylaxis, it was people with AIDS. But of course there is today a group, a much larger group, that equally desperately is in urgent need of drug being used effectively by frontline physicians against Covid.
Fauci's duplicitous response to Strub is available in the HuffPost.
The facts are however that, much as today with Covid, Fauci refused to acknowledge the evidence and, according to one account, even encouraged people with AIDS to stop taking treatments, like Bactrim, that weren’t specifically approved for use in people with AIDS.
Fauci, it seems, “went as far as telling activists attending a 1987 meeting that there was no data to suggest PCP prophylaxis was beneficial and that it may, in fact be dangerous.” If this vendetta against the later proven beneficial generic drug, Bactrim, sounds familiar, that is because it echoes, beat for beat, the war Fauci is waging against HCQ.
Also familiar is the ring of the background story of AZT, at that time the most expensive drug ever developed, and the involvement of a Fauci crony in the profiteering from the pharmaceutical windfall that AZT provided.
The AIDs activists tell us, "Had Fauci listened to people with AIDS and the clinicians treating them, and responded accordingly, he would have saved thousands of lives. In the two years between 1987, when Callen met with Fauci and 1989, when the guidelines were ultimately issued, nearly 17,000 people with AIDS suffocated from PCP. Most of these people might have lived had Fauci responded appropriately."
Dr Sonnabend agrees with Strub, and this physician wrote about Fauci back in 2006, “Why, in the case of AIDS, was Bactrim, a known preventative measure against PCP, introduced so many years after a need for it had been recognized? To this must be added the question of why this neglect, the consequences of which can be measured in the tens of thousands of lives lost, has received almost no attention.”
Check the Washington Blade story:
, "When contacted by the Blade last week, Fauci disputed Callen’s account of what happened, saying he made it clear to Callen during their 1987 meeting that he did not have the authority to issue guidelines on prescription drugs." Fauci claimed to them, "“It took obviously longer than he would have wished (about 17,000 lives longer)
"But," Fauci baldfacedly claims,"I didn’t blow him off and say I don’t want to issue guidelines." As anyone who's watched Fauci lead the FDA by the nose knows by now to be false, he says, "The fact is that’s neither within my purview nor within the responsibility or authority I have to issue guidelines.”
Strub warns "If we don’t tell the truth about the history of the AIDS epidemic, it will be subject to more whitewashing, more distortions and more rewriting to suit the legacies of the officials in charge."
In fact, because we still haven't learned from the history of Fauci and AIDS, we are now doomed to relive it a 100 times more painfully with HCQ and Covid.
