Luc Montagnier QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
AIDS does not inevitably lead to death, especially if you suppress the co-factors that support the disease. It is very important to tell this to people who are infected.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
AIDS win be our first priority, but in two years' time we don't know where AIDS research will stand, so we are also thinking of activity on other diseases.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Another interesting field, which is my own, is cofactors, not only to the disease but also to transmission. I am still puzzled by the fact that you get more sexual transmission in some ethnic populations. One way to answer this is to look for genetic factors.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Basic research is very useful, but it should be more geared toward application than it was before.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
But it will be more and more difficult - and less and less ethical - to find populations in a natural condition of high infection.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Even if we have a vaccine working in a laboratory, to prove that the vaccine is efficient, we need a Phase III trial.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Having a live virus in our cells - nobody could predict the long-term outcome.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
I am not, of course, against basic research. I'm a basic researcher myself. But I think we should be able to link both.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
I am very puzzled by the fact that young people are getting infected again. They don't take precautions despite an enormous amount of information. It's like riding a race car at 200 kilometers an hour. Some people like the risk.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
I think in our campaign the most important time is 10 to 12 years old, before they get sexually active. At that time there is no sexual pressure.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
I think we should put the same weight now on the co-factors as we have on HIV.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
I've participated in meetings where there were concerns by ethical experts. There is no clear solution.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
If we can lower the replication in the first place and neutralize new mutations, this may be a way to prevent the disease.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
It's clear that prevention will never be sufficient. That's why we need a vaccine that will be safe.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
It's easier to learn things for life by the age of 12 and not the age of 18. This is just my guess.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
It's very difficult in our society. You cannot impose certain behavioral changes. Education can do it at the right time, probably by high school. After that it is too late.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
My proposal now is to test a vaccine first on people who have been infected, and if you show some efficacy at this level, you might be able to go further to study uninfected people in a population with a high rate of infection.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Nobody could be satisfied with the clinical treatment. It is very difficult, and we don't know how long it will last.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
One could not have isolated this retrovirus without knowledge of other retroviruses, that's obvious. But I believe we have answered the criteria of isolation.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Our AIDS project will focus on two priorities. One win be to find treatments that will complement what we already use.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Our goal is not to completely eradicate the infection - that would be very difficult - but to produce a vaccine that will prevent not infection but disease. I think this is more possible.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Psychological factors are critical in supporting immune function. If you suppress this psychological support by telling someone he's condemned to die, your words alone will have condemned him.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
Since most of the transmission is sexual transmission, you have a regional or local response to the virus.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
That is why it is so important not only to have excellent treatment but also to try to get back the immune defense, because there you have a natural defense that takes place everywhere.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
The center will be fully operational in two years' time, but probably in the middle of the year we will have a temporary laboratory of 4,000 square feet.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
The danger is that many people believe that AIDS is a treatable disease and should not receive more attention than other diseases.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
The idea is to find, for instance, vaccinal therapy that would stop it at one time.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
The idea of the live-virus vaccine is to produce in a continuous way some viral antigens.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
There are two main theories: that it kills the cells infected directly or that the cells die in an indirect way. Actually, I am open to both.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
There should be new types of drugs.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
They don't actually see the real world, where 95% of the people with HIV are not treated and are dying. And even though we have some blue sky now in our country, the sky could become cloudy again very soon.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
We are working with a biotech company, Calypte, which has designed a urine test for the HIV antibody.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
We believe that these treatments are not sufficient and are also too expensive to be applied to many people in the developing world.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
We don't know why, but there are some gradients of infection.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
What perhaps should receive more attention is the effect of the treatment on the virus.
Quotation of Luc Montagnier
What seems to be clear to me is that after the primary infection most of the cells die indirectly, but at the later stage, when the viral load is very high, the virus kills a lot of cells directly.
