Plague of corruption : restoring faith in the promise of science
Like many women who have trespassed into the world of men, Mikovits uncovered decades-old secrets that many would prefer to stay buried. From her doctoral thesis, which changed the treatment of HIV-AIDS, to her discovery of a new family of human retroviruses, Mikovits has seen the best and worst of science. When her investigations questioned whether the use of animal tissue in medical research were unleashing devastating plagues of chronic disease she saw science at its worst. If her suspicions are correct, we are looking at a complete realignment of scientific practices, including how we study and treat human disease. -- Adapted from jacket.
