Undefined, October 9, 2003

   “There is no sound scientific reason to conduct these experiments. The most recent experiments (Tumpey et al. 2002) allegedly seeked to test the efficacy of existing antiviral drugs on the 1918 construct—but there is little need for antiviral drugs against the 1918 strain if the 1918 strain would not have been sequenced and recreated in the first place. It is true that biodefense research—and any kind of civilian medical research—is always a race with its counterpart, the evolution of naturally occuring infectious agents or the development of biowarfare agents. But in this race it should be avoided to create the threats that are allegedly the motivation for the research. ” [Sunshine Project, 10/9/2003 [b]]
