Last century there was a sharp difference of opinion between those, such as Koch and Pasteur, who proposed that disease could be caused by invisible microbes, and others who held that epidemics are the result of evil vapours (mal'aria). Arguments that AIDS does not have an infectious basis are as quaint as those of the miasmalists. 
AIDS-Epidemiologie : Widersprüchlichkeiten zur Annahme einer HIV-Ätiologie und Infektionskrankheit
It is concluded that American AIDS is not infectious and suggested that unidentified, mostly noninfectious pathogens cause AIDS
AIDS pathogenesis: what have two decades of HIV research taught us?
22 years ago, the first cases of an acquired immunodeficiency syndrome afflicting young, homosexual American men were reported, heralding what we now know to be the beginning of the HIV epidemic.
HIV causes AIDS: Koch's postulates fulfilled.
TLDR
The spread of AIDS through sexual contact, blood transfusion and contaminated syringes has led to a recent estimate of nearly four million AIDS cases worldwide and some 21 million people infected with HIV-1 or HIV-2.
How much longer can we afford the AIDS virus monopoly
Until 1984 AIDS science was open. Initially the new epidemic of pneumonias and Kaposi’s sarcomas, since called AIDS, was considered a collection of non-infectious ‘lifestyle’ diseases. But the
The Sink and the Murder Scene: Rise and Fall of a Causal Model for AIDS Pathogenesis
TLDR
The rise of the so-called "sink model" of AIDS pathogenesis is outlined on the background of the knowledge and anomalies emerging in AIDS research in the Nineties, ultimately leading to the overcoming of the model itself and to a "paradigm shift" towards alternative views under scrutiny.
The role of drugs in the origin of AIDS.
  • P. Duesberg
  • Medicine
    Biomedicine & pharmacotherapy = Biomedecine & pharmacotherapie
  • 1992
TLDR
The drug-AIDS hypothesis predicts that most AIDS can be prevented by stopping the consumption of drugs, and provides a rational basis for therapy.
AIDS acquired by drug consumption and other noncontagious risk factors.
TLDR
It is proposed that all American/European AIDS diseases, that exceed their normal background, result from recreational and anti-HIV drugs and African AIDS is proposed to result from protein malnutrition, poor sanitation and subsequent parasitic infections.
Think Out of the Box, Think Out of the Eye Reappraisal of HIV/AIDS Retinopathy
TLDR
In 1981, acquired immunodeficiency was proposed denominator of a newly defined syndrome of diseases that were on the rise in promiscuous male homosexuals and intravenous drug users and inspired a search for a single new pathogen.
The AIDS dilemma: drug diseases blamed on a passenger virus
TLDR
It is proposed that the long-term consumption of recreational drugs and prescriptions of DNA chain-terminating and other anti-HIV drugs, cause all AIDS diseases in America and Europe that exceed their long-established, national backgrounds, i.e. <95%.
The chemical bases of the various AIDS epidemics: Recreational drugs, anti-viral chemotherapy and malnutrition
TLDR
It is proposed that AIDS is a collection of chemical epidemics, caused by recreational drugs, anti-HIV drugs, and malnutrition, and is predicted to predict AIDS prevention by adequate nutrition and abstaining from Drugs, and even cures by treating AIDS diseases with proven medications.

SLIM DISEASE: A NEW DISEASE IN UGANDA AND ITS ASSOCIATION WITH HTLV-III INFECTION
TLDR
The site and timing of the first reported cases suggest that the disease arose in Tanzania, and there is no clear evidence to implicate other possible means of transmission, such as by insect vectors or re-used injection needles.
Seropositivity for HIV and the development of AIDS or AIDS related condition: three year follow up of the San Francisco General Hospital cohort
TLDR
It is concluded from the observed rates and the distribution of predictive variables at three years that half of the men who were seropositive for HIV will develop AIDS by six years after the start of the study, and three quarters will developAIDS or an AIDS related condition.
Human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: correlation but not causation.

  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
HIV is not sufficient for AIDS and that it may not even be necessary for AIDS because its activity is just as low in symptomatic carriers as in asymptomatic carriers, and the correlation between antibody to HIV and AIDS does not prove causation.
HTLV-I/II seropositivity and death from AIDS among HIV-1 seropositive intravenous drug users
TLDR
In a prospective study of street-recruited intravenous drug users in Miami, Florida, USA, IVDUs infected with both viruses were three times more likely to die from AIDS during follow-up than were those infected with HIV-1 only.
CYTOMEGALOVIRUS INFECTION AND PROGRESSION TOWARDS AIDS IN HAEMOPHILIACS WITH HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS INFECTION
TLDR
Survival analysis showed that CMV-seropositive patients were at greater risk of HIV disease than CMv-seronegative patients from about 2 years after HIV seroconversion, and CMV infection is associated with a more rapid progression to HIV disease.
Retroviruses as carcinogens and pathogens: expectations and reality.
TLDR
It has been proposed that retroviruses transform inefficiently by activating latent cellular oncogenes by for example provirus integration, which predicts diploid tumors with great diversity, because integration sites are different in each tumor.
Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) associated with transfusions.
TLDR
Evidence that AIDS may be transmitted in blood is strengthened by the finding that patients with transfusion-associated AIDS were more likely to be white and older than other patients with no known risk factors.
Kaposi's sarcoma among persons with AIDS: a sexually transmitted infection?
TLDR
Kaposi's sarcoma in persons with AIDS may be caused by an as yet unidentified infectious agent, transmitted mainly by sexual contact.
A formalin-inactivated whole SIV vaccine confers protection in macaques.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that a whole virus vaccine is highly effective in inducing immune responses that can protect against lentivirus infection and AIDS-like disease.
Incidence of AIDS and excess of mortality associated with HIV in haemophiliacs in the United Kingdom: report on behalf of the directors of haemophilia centres in the United Kingdom.
TLDR
There is a substantial burden of fatal disease among patients positive for HIV who have not been formally diagnosed as having AIDS, and rate of progression to AIDS depended strongly on age.
