Mohammed Al-Bayati and Sharon Springs, Kansas

Mohammed Ali Al-Bayati, PhD, DABT, DABVT is a comparative pathologist and HIV/AIDS denialist, and member of the board of Alive and Well AIDS Alternatives, who is known for his involvement in the death of Eliza Jane Scovill. After Scovill died on May 16, 2005 of an HIV/AIDS-related infection of Pneumocystis pneumonia, her mother, Christine Maggiore, had the autopsy reviewed by Al-Bayati, who came to a different conclusion: that Scovill had died of an allergic reaction to amoxicillin, a conclusion Maggiore agreed with. However, Al-Bayati did not review the coroner's pathology slides, but only looked at her medical records. His report has been criticized by, among others, neuropathologist Harry Vinters, who wrote that "the coroner was correct in ruling the cause of death as AIDS-related pneumonia." ABC News Primetime showed Al-Bayati's report to an independent medical examiner, who concluded that it was incorrect and that the autopsy's conclusion was correct. In addition, Al-Bayati published a book in 1999 entitled Get all the facts: HIV does not cause AIDS.

Education

Born in Iraq, Al-Bayati attended the University of Baghdad, where he received his BVMS in 1975. He fled the country the following year, and went on to attend the University of Cairo, where he obtained his MVSc in veterinary pathology in 1978. He became a US citizen the same year. In 1989, he graduated from the University of California, Davis with a PhD in comparative pathology. Toxi-Health International

Established by Dr. Al-Bayati in 1997, Toxi-Health International is a consulting firm whose goal is to exonerate those who have been accused of violent crimes, and claim that the adverse effects were actually the result of an adverse reaction to a vaccine or other medical product. To this end, Al-Bayati has published some analyses with regard to the deaths of a number of children, notably Alan Yurko of Florida, and adults, in the journal Medical Veritas, where he is a featured editor. These publications have been criticized by Seth Kalichman, who wrote that these online postings were "one of the more obscene Internet postings in HIV/AIDS denialism" and accused him of "exploit the deaths of children." Research

The general area of Al-Bayati's research focuses on the toxicity of vanadate in mice and rats, the subject of his thesis. His research has been published in the Annals of Occupational Hygiene, Cancer Chemotherapy and Pharmacology, and Biochemical Pharmacology. Views on AIDS

Al-Bayati stated in an interview that "I discovered that HIV does not cause AIDS in 1998, about seven months after leaving UC Davis." He argues that AIDS is caused by immune-suppressing drugs, and that the single biggest cause of AIDS are corticosteroids. Al-Bayati was also a co-applicant on Peter Duesberg's 1993 grant application for AIDS-related research to be conducted on mice, an application which was rejected by the National Institutes of Health on the basis that Duesberg had not conducted enough "preliminary experiments" on the topic.
