Tombstone of Jakob Segal in Berlin

Jakob Segal (April 17, 1911 in Saint Petersburg, Russian Empire – September 30, 1995) was a biology professor at Humboldt University in the former East Germany. He was one of the advocates of the conspiracy theory that HIV was created by the United States government at Fort Detrick, Maryland.

He was accused of being a Soviet disinformation agent by KGB defector Vasili Mitrokhin, and two members of former East Germany's secret police Stasi.

Operation Infektion[edit]

Main article: Operation INFEKTION

Segal was used in the KGB Operation INFEKTION.

Segal claimed that Prof. Robert Gallo crossed the Visna sheep virus with the Human T-lymphotropic virus (HTLV I) in 1978 in the P4 laboratory of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Fort Detrick. Proponents of this theory claim that 90% of HIV RNA is found in Visna and 10% in HTLV I. Genomic analysis, however, shows that such claims are false. Research after Segal's theory shows that HIV is much more closely related to the simian immunodeficiency virus than to any other virus.[1]

HIV therapy hypothesis[edit]

Segal suggested an HIV therapy of anti-inflammatory aspirin or ultraviolet radiation of the patient's blood in order to reduce the metabolic activity of macrophages, which are host cells for HIV. He also supported the idea of a p24- vaccine without gp120 which was patented by Jonas Salk as "Remune".
