Is it a mere coincidence that all of these scientists have recently died?


1) Nov. 12, 2001: Benito Que, 52
--Expertise: Expert in infectious diseases and cellular biology at the Miami Medical School
--Circumstances of Death: Que left his laboratory after receiving a telephone call. Shortly afterward he was found comatose in the parking lot of the Miami Medical School. He died without regaining consciousness. Police said he had suffered a heart attack. His family insisted he had been in perfect health and claimed four men attacked him. But, later, oddly, the family inquest returned a verdict of death by natural causes.

2) Nov. 16, 2001: Don C. Wiley, 57
--Expertise: One of the foremost microbiologists in the United States. Dr. Wiley, of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Harvard University, was an expert on how the immune system responds to viral attacks such as the classic doomsday plagues of HIV, ebola and influenza.
--Circumstances: He had just bought tickets to take his son to Graceland the following day. He had just left a banquet for fellow researchers in Memphis. Police found his rental car on a bridge outside Memphis, Tenn. His body was found Dec. 20 in the Mississippi River. his family said he was in perfect health. There was no autopsy. Forensic experts said he may have had a dizzy spell and have fallen off the bridge. Why did he leave the keys in the ignition and his lights on? Why was Wiley´s car facing in the opposite direction from his father´s house, which was only a short distance away?

3) Nov. 21, 2001: Vladimir Pasechnik, 64
--Expertise: World-class microbiologist and high-profile Russian defector; defected to the United Kingdom in 1989, played a huge role in Russian biowarfare and helped to figure out how to modify cruise missiles to deliver the agents of mass biological destruction.
--Background: founded Regma Biotechnologies company in Britain, a laboratory at Porton Down, the country´s chem-bio warfare defense establishment. Regma currently has a contract with the U.S. Navy for "the diagnostic and therapeutic treatment of anthrax".
--Circumstances: The pathologist who did the autopsy, and who also happened to be associated with Britain´s spy agency, concluded he died of a stroke. Details of the postmortem were not revealed at an inquest, in which the press was given no prior notice. Colleagues who had worked with Pasechnik said he was in good health.

4) Dec. 10, 2001: Robert M. Schwartz, 57
--Expertise: Expert in DNA sequencing and pathogenic micro-organisms, founding member of the Virginia Biotechnology Association, and the Executive Director of Research and Development at Virginia´s Center for Innovative Technology in Herndon.
--Circumstances: stabbed and slashed with what police believe was a sword in his farmhouse in Leesberg, Va. His daughter, who identifies herself as a pagan high priestess, and several of her fellow pagans have been charged.

5) Dec. 14, 2001: Nguyen Van Set, 44
--Expertise: animal diseases facility of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization had just come to fame for discovering a virulent strain of mousepox, which could be modified to affect smallpox.
--Circumstances: died at work in Geelong, Australia, in a laboratory accident. He entered an airlocked storage lab and died from exposure to nitrogen.

6) Feb. 9, 2002: Victor Korshunov, 56
--Expertise: Expert in intestinal bacteria of children around the world
--Circumstances: bashed over the head near his home in Moscow.

7) Feb. 14, 2002: Ian Langford, 40
--Expertise: expert in environmental risks and disease.
--Circumstances: found dead in his home near Norwich, England, naked from the waist down and wedged under a chair.

8) Feb. 28, 2002: Tanya Holzmayer, 46
--Expertise: a Russian who moved to the U.S. in 1989, focused on the part of the human molecular structure that could be affected best by medicine.
--Circumstances: killed by fellow microbiologist Guyang (Matthew) Huang, who shot her seven times when she opened the door to a pizza delivery. Then he shot himself.

9) Feb. 28, 2002: Guyang Huang, 38
--Expertise: Microbiologist
--Circumstances: Apparently shot himself after shooting fellow microbiologist, Tanya Holzmayer, seven times.

10) March 24, 2002: David Wynn-Williams, 55
--Expertise: Respected astrobiologist with the British Antarctic Survey, who studied the habits of microbes that might survive in outer space.
--Circumstances: Died in a freak road accident near his home in Cambridge, England. He was hit by a car while he was jogging.

Another Top Bioweapons Expert Killed
By Sam Marsden
PA News
7-4-4

The pilot of an aircraft who died alongside three passengers when it crashed into a field was an expert in chemical and biological weapons, it emerged today.

Dr Paul Norman, 52, of Salisbury, Wiltshire, was killed when the single-engine Cessna 206 he was piloting crashed in Devon on Sunday.

A father and daughter also died at the scene, and 44-year-old parachute instructor and Royal Marine Major Mike Wills later died in hospital.

Dr Norman, who was married with a 14-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter, was the chief scientist for chemical and biological defence at the Ministry of Defence's laboratory at Porton Down, Wiltshire.

He travelled the world lecturing on defending against the scourge of weapons of mass destruction, a friend and colleague said today.

The Cessna crashed near the village of Beacon, east Devon, a few miles from Dunkeswell airfield, where it took off.

The aircraft's other two passengers, 16-year-old Daniel Greening from Kingsteignton, Devon, and a 23-year-old from Taunton, Somerset, are still in hospital.

Retired police officer Eric Franklin, 66, from Beacon, has described seeing the aircraft flying low over his farmhouse and hearing the engine "cutting out and spluttering" before the crash.

I doubt that it's a coincidence that so many experts in related boio/chem weapons research have turned up dead PuPP. I could understand a few dying of natural causes or by accident, but there have been more than 19 killed since 9/11 and perhaps even a few more that were killed or died under mysterious circumstances prior to 9/11.

Hey DarmonVing, I only have 13 in my list so far.

Do you have any links for more names?

Here's what I see, the very minds that could save us from whatever horrors the global elite will unleash on us are being eliminated.

To this list we can add Dr. Leland Rickman of UCSD who was an expert in infectious diseases.


UCSD scientist, teacher was expert on infectious diseases


By Cheryl Clark
STAFF WRITER

June 26, 2003


Dr. Leland Rickman of UCSD, an expert in infectious disease who helped the county prepare to fight bioterrorism after Sept. 11, died Tuesday while on a teaching mission in southern Africa.

"He was a quintessential teacher and clinician, with expertise in areas too numerous to count," Dr. Kenneth Kaushansky, chairman of UCSD's Department of Medicine, said yesterday. "He will be missed."

Dr. Rickman, a resident of Carmel Valley, was 47.

He was in the African nation of Lesotho with Dr. Chris Mathews of UCSD, the director of the university's Owen Clinic for AIDS patients.

Mathews told colleagues at UCSD that Dr. Rickman had complained of a headache and had gone to lie down. When he didn't appear for dinner, Mathews checked on him and found him dead. A cause has not yet been determined.

Friends and colleagues yesterday remembered Dr. Rickman's depth as a scientist, physician, teacher and punster.

"As far as I'm concerned, he was the most important and friendly link between UCSD and (practitioners in) the community, always available to all of us to discuss things," said Dr. Gonzalo Ballon-Landa, infectious disease specialist.

Dr. Rickman was the incoming president of the Infectious Disease Association of California.

Physicians within UCSD and in private practice said he was especially effective during the tense times after Sept. 11, 2001, as San Diego County officials grappled with how to respond to a possible attack of anthrax, sarin gas, smallpox or other bioterrorism threat.

With other infectious disease experts, Dr. Rickman toured the county, talking to medical and citizen groups about how to distinguish symptoms of biological agents from ordinary illnesses such as the flu.

He was an author and the editor of a report on bioterrorism by the Group to Eradicate Resistant Micro-organisms (GERM) that was sponsored by the San Diego County Medical Society and distributed to all local health care providers.

Dr. Rickman, who had done much research with pox viruses, helped counsel health workers reluctant to be vaccinated for smallpox, several colleagues recalled.

Dr. Joshua Fierer, UCSD's chief of infectious disease, said Dr. Rickman "loved to study the symptoms of people coming back from exotic places, figuring out where they had been and what they might have been exposed to."

He credited Dr. Rickman with writing one of the first papers linking lung disease to leptospirosis, a bacteria found in water exposed to animal urine.

As a teacher, he was always winning accolades from medical students. Kaushansky said Dr. Rickman won so many prizes, he considered establishing a standing "excellence in perpetuity" award so other UCSD teaching physicians could have a chance.

County epidemiologist Dr. Michele Ginsberg, who worked closely with Dr. Rickman on a variety of cases, recalled how he handled tough situations.

After learning that an employee of a large company had died of meningococcal meningitis, caused by a sometimes lethal bacterium, "he paged me at 6 a.m. while he was driving to see the patient . . . to get public health involved in evaluating who might have been exposed" so they could be given preventive drugs, she said.

"And when he saw that many didn't have health insurance, he helped write the prescriptions to protect others who might have become ill."

Dr. Sara Browne, who is training at UCSD in infectious disease, said Dr. Rickman "went out of his way to make sure patients were covered, sometimes digging into his own pocket" to pay for drugs they couldn't afford.

As an instructor, Browne said, "he was such a great and generous teacher who was always open and never put anyone down for asking a question."

Colleagues said Dr. Rickman was often the first to volunteer during the UCSD Medical Center's busiest times. He also was associate director of UCSD's microbiology lab, where he did research to better understand what antibiotics might be most effective in treating patients.

Dr. Rickman also had a penchant for bad puns, photography and funny neckties.

"He could make puns about anything, and they were just atrocious," said Dr. Sharon Reed, UCSD professor of pathology and medicine. "And he had an impish sense of humor, wearing ties covered with (microscope images of) bacteria."

Dr. Rickman, who was born in Cleveland, earned a bachelor of science degree in chemical engineering at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor and received his medical degree at the University of Michigan. After a fellowship in infectious diseases at the Naval Hospital San Diego during 1983-85 and several posts with the Navy, he joined the UCSD faculty in 1990.

Dr. Rickman is survived by his wife, Susan Kanfer of Carmel Valley; his father, Leonard Rickman of Rancho Bernardo; sister, Janine Rickman of Phoenix; and a niece and nephew. Memorial services are pending.

We can also add LSU West Nile researcher Michael Perich to the list.



LSU W. Nile researcher, 46, dies in pickup crash on I-12

By JOSH NOEL
Advocate staff writer

Michael Perich, an LSU professor who helped fight the spread of the West Nile virus died Saturday morning in a one-vehicle car accident. He was 46.

Walker Police Chief Elton Burns said Sunday that Perich of 5227 River Bend Blvd., Baton Rouge, crashed his Ford pickup truck about 4:30 a.m. Saturday, while heading west on Interstate 12 in Livingston Parish.

Perich's truck veered right off the highway about 3 miles east of Walker, flipped and landed in rainwater, Burns said.

Perich, who was wearing his seat belt, drowned. The cause of the crash is under investigation, Burns said.

Perich, who worked for the U.S. Army for more than 15 years, joined the LSU faculty in August 2001 as an assistant professor of medical entomology.

In addition to West Nile, Perich had also studied malaria and several other diseases, said Tim Schowalter, head of LSU's entomology department.

"He was one of our stars," Schowalter said. "He was well known. While he was here, I certainly got to know the depth and breadth of his character and talent."

Perich worked with the East Baton Rouge Parish Mosquito Control and Rodent Abatement District to determine whether mosquitoes in the area carried West Nile.

He also worked with several other parishes to establish mosquito-abatement districts, said colleague Jack Baldwin, a professor of entomology.

"He certainly impressed me with his desire and incentive to do research, teach students and provide answers for the community," Baldwin said. "In the short time he was here, he was a leader in mosquito research."

Perich said in an interview with The Advocate in 2002 that his Army career led him to spend seven or eight months every year traveling the world.

He said he had been robbed at gunpoint, shot down while flying over Africa, ridden through the jungles of countless countries and suffered through malaria and dengue fever.

"He probably does more field work than any entomologist based in the United States that I know of," Robert A. Wirtz, chief of entomology at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has said of Perich.

"Mike is one of the few entomologists with the experience to go out and save lives today."

Perich was raised in Nebraska and earned his bachelor's degree at Iowa State University, where he graduated with three majors: chemistry, entomology and zoology. He earned his master's and doctorate from Oklahoma State.

From 1986 to 1992, Perich worked at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md., as the vector suppression program manager and research medical entomologist.

In 1992, he moved to work for the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and continued his travels to Southeast Asia, Central and South America, Korea and Africa. Perich did a lot of work with testing ways to keep disease-bearing insects, such as mosquitoes, away from people. His research looked at the use of various area insecticides, personal insect repellents and traps.

Among his other skills, Perich spoke Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, French, Russian, Polish, Hungarian and Swahili.

He is survived by his wife, Audrey Perich, and daughter Sarah Perich, both of Baton Rouge, and his mother, Rita Perich, of Omaha, Neb., among others.

Visitation will be at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government St., from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. today. Visitation is at St. Aloysius Catholic Church, 2025 Stuart Ave., from 11 a.m. until Mass of Christian burial at 1 p.m. Tuesday, celebrated by the Rev. Rich Luberti. A private interment service will take place at a later date.

Then there was Carlo Urbani who was a respected Italian epidemiologist who just happened to be infected by the new SARS virus that he had "helped to identify".

Obituary

Carlo Urbani

A dedicated and internationally respected epidemiologist, he died when infected by the new Sars virus, which he had helped to identify

Lorenzo Savioli
Monday April 21, 2003
The Guardian

Dr Carlo Urbani, the Italian epidemiologist, did work of enduring value combating infectious illness around the world. He has died at the age of 46 in Bangkok from Sars (severe acute respiratory syndrome) - the new disease that he had helped to identify.

Carlo was the infectious disease specialist in the World Health Organisation (WHO) office in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi. In late February, he was asked to advise on a case of suspected atypical pneumonia in an American businessman who had been admitted to the city's French hospital.

Immediately, Carlo understood the severity of the syndrome, and was aware of the threat. He advised hospital staff about protective measures, including patient isolation, high-filter masks and double-gowning, not routine measures in Vietnam.

On March 9, Carlo met officials at the ministry of health: he explained the need to isolate patients and to screen travellers, despite the possible harmful effect on Vietnam's economy and image. The WHO's world infectious diseases surveillance system was also informed, leading to the worldwide alert which resulted in a concerted global response.

Thanks to his prompt action, the epidemic was contained in Vietnam. However, because of close daily contact with SARS patients, he contracted the infection. On March 11, he was admitted to hospital in Bangkok and isolated. Less than three weeks later he died.

He was born in Castel-planio to a middle-class family with a strong Catholic background. His mother was headmistress of the primary school, and had served as mayor. His father taught at the Ancona Commercial Navy Institute. Carlo himself was elected a town councillor from 1980 to 1985.

He graduated in medicine from the University of Ancona in 1981, and took a higher degree in infectious diseases three years later. He continued this work at the university, and from 1990 at Macerata Hospital.

He had always been attracted by the challenge of international health. In the late 1980s, he visited Mauritania several times with a group of volunteers to support its ministry of health in parasitic disease control.

While at Macerata, Carlo contacted the WHO, and from 1993 began working with it on temporary assignments in the Maldives, Mauritania and Guinea. In 1995, I went with him to the Maldives: as coordinator of the WHO's parasitic diseases and vector (disease-carrying organism) control team in Geneva, I was able to appreciate his qualities - notably his attitude and dedication - at close quarters.

We worked from sunrise to sunset, ignoring the beaches, tracking the epidemiology of the hookworm (a serious intestinal infection) and training laboratory technicians to test for worms. Over simple evening meals of rice and fish we joked: "Nobody at headquarters is going to believe that we have spent our days in the Maldives poring over faecal samples." In Mauritania, Carlo was the first to document transmission of Schistosoma mansoni, an infection affecting over 200 million people worldwide.

In 1997, Carlo joined Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Switzerland, and worked in Cambodia. MSF had contacted WHO, which was looking for an infectious disease specialist with a background in parasites. Carlo's work led to innovative approaches in the control of Schistosoma mekongi, a parasitic flatworm causing intestinal schistosomiasis, transmitted only on the river Mekong. If left untreated, this serious disease irreversibly damages the liver, causing fibrosis that eventually kills the patient. On the Mekong, Carlo noted rocks that were the natural habitat of tiny snails acting as intermediate hosts of the flatworm. He developed a simple questionnaire for children, asking about rocks where they bathed, to identify schools where pupils needed regular treatment.

This approach reduced the need for costly diagnosis. As a result, children in Cambodia now receive regular treatment to prevent irreversible complications in adulthood.

On his return to Italy, Carlo continued his involvement with MSF, and in 1999 he was appointed president of the Italian section. He was invited to Oslo that year to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of MSF. He saw it as rewarding the idea that "health and dignity are indissociable in human beings and that it is a duty to stay close to victims and guarantee their rights".

He began collaborating with the Ivo de Carneri Foundation, named after a noted parasitologist and promoting the control of such diseases in developing countries. He became a member of its scientific committee.

In 2000 he was recruited by the WHO to the Hanoi post, as expert in communicable diseases for Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. He recommended novel approaches for adapting global helminth (parasitic worm) control in areas where foodborne trematodes (such as clonor-chiasis, which affects 7 million people, mostly in Asia) and cestodes are endemic. He also advocated regular treatment of children with praziquantel to prevent cholangiocarcinoma of the liver, a severe form of cancer that is a late complication of untreated clonorchiasis.

His wife Giuliana told me that a few days before falling ill he had argued with her. She was concerned to see him working with patients with such a deadly disease. He said: "If I cannot work in such situations, what am I here for - answering emails, going to cocktail parties and pushing paper?"

He was a passionate photographer, an expert ultra-light airplane pilot, and a good organist. He is survived by his wife, sons Tommaso and Luca, and daughter Maddalena.

· Carlo Urbani, epidemiologist, born October 19 1956; died March 29 2003

Thank you DarmonVing!

Ok, so experts on West Nile and Norwalk virus have also been eliminated.

The loss of so many great minds in such a short time is truly alarming and should be a good clue to what's in store for us.

Of course, Arabs or some other nation that has resources to be plundered for profit will be blamed for any future bio weapon attacks.

Then two more scientists died...


More Dead Top Microbiologist Scientists

From Patricia Doyle, PhD
dr_p_doyle@hotmail.com
1-29-4

Dr. Mike Patrick Kiley, Ebola, Mad Cow Expert, top of the line world class, dies of massive heart attack. Dr. Robert Shope, Virus Expert Who Warned Of Epidemics dies in the same week. Coincidently, both Dr. Shope and Dr. Kiley were working on the lab upgrade to BSL 4 at the UTMB Galvaston lab for Homeland Security. The lab would have to be secure to house some of the deadliest pathogens of tropical and emerging infectious disease as well as bioweaponized ones. I have also noted a commonality of most of the now, 44 scientists who met their demise since 9/11/01 and that is all were expert in emerging infectious diseases especially Ebola, Mad Cow, HIV. Dr. Shope had accumulated his own collection of virus samples gathered from all over the world. It would not be hard to administer a drug that would cause Dr. Shope's lung transplant to either be rejected or to cause complications from the transplant. As for Dr. Kiley, we have heard about other scientists having massive heart attacks which could be caused by administering drugs or toxins. When Tesh and Shope left Yale to go to Galveston, they took a collection of some 5,000 samples of viruses and arboviruses along with them.

Around the same time, Scientists were being murdered in Russia.

18:04 2002-02-09

A Moscow band hunting for heads. For scientists- heads

In Moscow, there is now a real hunt for science, to be more exact for scientists- heads.

Recently, the head of microbiology sub-faculty of Russian State Medical University (former Second Moscow Medical Institute), V.Korshunov was killed.

The body of the killed professor with cranial injury was found on Friday, at 8.15 (Moscow time) in the entrance of the house in Academician Bakulev Street, in Southwest Administrative District, where the 56-year-old scientist lived.

The police immediately arrived to the spot. Forensic medical experts found out that the scientist died 8 hours earlier. Afterwards, proceedings were instituted.

It was already third death of a scientist, that witnessed it hardly could be a coincidence. Only within this January, Russian Academy of Science lost two scientists with world name v academician I.Glebov (who died as a result of a bandit attack in St Petersburg) and Corresponding Member of the Academy of Science A.Brushlinski (who was killed in Moscow).

So, what is happening? At first, one was fighting against pseudo-science, than against brain drain, and now against what will we fight?

This scientist has probably invented a vaccine protecting from any biological arm, or v quite the contrary v created such an arm, like Brushlinski who suffered for his creation.

Russian science seems to literally die out. Academic degree is becoming too dangerous for its possessors.

Scienctist found dead outside biochemical firm in Fremont

Police say researcher may have purposefully inhaled combo of toxic substances

By Ben Aguirre Jr., STAFF WRITER

FREMONT -- A research scientist found dead Friday morning in front of the biochemical firm he worked for apparently died after inhaling a combination of potassium cyanide and acid, police said.

An employee arriving at Ciphergen Biosystems Inc., 6611 Dumbarton Circle, about 6:20 a.m. found the 29-year-old man, whom he worked with, lying on the sidewalk in front of the west entrance, and immediately called authorities, Sgt. Jeff Swadener said.

Early indications are that he died after inhaling fumes he created by mixing an acid with powder potassium cyanide, said Detective Bill Veteran. There were no signs of foul play, he said. Fire officials said cyanide attacks the central nervous system.

It is unknown how long the man was lying in front of the firm, but company records show he last entered the building about 11 p.m. Thursday, said Geoff LaTendresse, a Fremont Fire Department division chief.

Russian Scientist Dies in Ebola Accident at Former Weapons Lab

By JUDITH MILLER

NEW ORLEANS, May 24 - A Russian scientist at a former Soviet biological weapons laboratory in Siberia has died after accidentally sticking herself with a needle laced with ebola, the deadly virus for which there is no vaccine or treatment, the lab's parent Russian center announced over the weekend.

Scientists and officials said the accident had raised concerns about safety and secrecy at the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology, known as Vector, which in Soviet times specialized in turning deadly viruses into biological weapons. Vector has been a leading recipient of aid in an American program to help former Soviet scientists and labs convert to peaceful research.

Although the accident occurred May 5, Vector did not report it to the World Health Organization until last week. Scientists said that although Vector had isolated the scientist to contain any potential spread of the disease and there was no requirement that accidents involving ebola be reported, the delay meant that scientists at the health agency could not provide prompt advice on treatment that might have saved her life.

The first public mention of the accident was over the weekend on Pro-Med, the informal Internet reporting and discussion network of doctors and other health care professionals, which posted the Vector account of the laboratory accident on its Web site (www.promedmail.org).

American experts said the accident had not occurred in a lab now receiving United States government or private money for research.

While officials at Vector said the scientist, Antonina Presnyakova, was working on an ebola vaccine, they have declined to identify who was financing the research or discuss its specific nature.

Terry Fredeking, the president and founder of Antibody Systems, a Texas-based company, said that while his company had spent more than $150,000 in the last five years on joint research on ebola at Vector, the accident did not involve research he was financing. "It's sad and somewhat frightening," said Mr. Fredeking, "that Vector didn't inform the W.H.O. or even its own lab directors that the accident had occurred in time for us to offer help."

Ronald Atlas, a biodefense expert at a center at the University of Louisville, in Kentucky, said that while it was important to work on vaccines to protect against deadly viruses, the accident showed the danger. "It shows we must be careful about what we are doing, as well as where and with whom we are doing it," said Dr. Atlas, in an interview here at the American Society for Microbiology's annual meeting.

An American scientist was involved in a similar accident with ebola at the Army's leading biodefense lab at Fort Detrick, Md., several months ago. But she did not contract the disease. The lab disclosed the accident within 48 hours, officials said.

Vector is also one of two repositories of the deadly smallpox virus - the other is the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. Since the Soviet Union collapsed, the United States has spent millions of dollars to help convert such places to peaceful research, including an estimated $10 million at Vector.

Critics of the program have opposed expanding such aid because it is hard to verify whether former Soviet scientists are using the American-supported research for peaceful purposes. But the program's defenders say it keeps scientists employed on peaceful projects and prevents them from working for anti-American states or terrorists seeking biological weapons.

I almost forgot about this one... Two Israeli haematologists died in a plane crash in November of 2001.


BMJ 2002;324:616 ( 9 March )

Obituaries

Yaacov Matzner and Amiram Eldor

Israeli haematologists who were killed in a plane crash in Switzerland

Professors Yaacov Matzner and Amiram Eldor were on their way back to Israel via Switzerland when their plane came down in dense forest three kilometres short of the landing field. They had been lecturing at an international haematology conference in Berlin and had booked the flight to Zurich so that they could return to their patients early on Sunday morning instead of taking a later flight back with their colleagues.

Professor Matzner, dean of the Hebrew University-Hadassah Medical School in Jerusalem and chairman of the Israel Society of Hematology and Blood Transfusions, was the son of Holocaust survivors. One of the world's experts on blood diseases including familiar Mediterranean fever (FMF), Matzner conducted research that led to a genetic test for FMF. He was working on cloning the gene connected to FMF and investigating the normal physiological function of amyloid A, a protein often found in high levels in people with blood cancer. As medical school dean, he was credited with bringing in new technological teaching methods and of inculcating his strict code of medical ethics in his students. He leaves a wife, Linesya; and two children.

Professor Eldor worked for years at Hadassah-University Hospital's haematology department but left for his native Tel Aviv in 1993 to head the haematology institute at Ichilov Hospital. He was an internationally known expert on blood clottingespecially in women who had repeated miscarriagesand was a member of a team that identified eight new anti-clotting agents in the saliva of leeches. He leaves a wife, Sofia; and two sons.

Before that in May of 2001 Professor Janusz Jeljaszewicz an expert in Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections dies.



An outstanding Polish scientist, Professor Janusz Jeljaszewicz, died in Warsaw on 7 May 2001.

Professor Jeljaszewicz worked in the Department of Medical Microbiology, in Poznan Medical School, then at Warsaw Medical Institute. From 1963 until 2001 he was in the National Institute of Hygiene and was Head of the Staphylococcal Laboratory, and later of the Bacterial Metabolites Laboratory.

He was Chairman of the Scientific Council, and became Director General of the Institute (1997–2001).

He also wrote over 500 original publications, 25 books, more than 130 congress abstracts and was on the Editorial Board of many distinguished journals.

Professor Jeljaszewicz organized six international symposia on Staphylococci and Staphylococcal Infections in Warsaw between 1965 and 1989. The seventh and eighth were held in Sweden and France.

His main scientific interests and achievements were in the mechanism of action and biological properties of staphylococcal toxins, and included the immunomodulatory properties and experimental treatment of tumours by Propionibacterium.

Professor Jeljaszewicz was the chief co-ordinator of the Polish–American Scientific Cooperation body (1965–1990), a position illustrating his talent in organizing effective collaboration with not only the USA but many European countries also.

He was President of the Chemotherapy Section of the Polish Academy of Medicine and a constant supporter of all activities of the International Society of Chemotherapy and the Federation of the European Societies for Chemotherapy and for Infection.

The world’s awareness of Poland during the darkest period of our history was in part due to Professor Jeljaszewicz. Polish microbiology has lost a distinguished researcher, a great man, and an ambassador for Polish science.
