The view of The Perth Group is that the HIV/AIDS experts have not proven:
1. The existence of a unique, exogenously acquired retrovirus, HIV.
2. The "HIV" antibody tests are specific for "HIV" infection.
3. The HIV theory of AIDS, that is, that HIV causes acquired immune deficiency (destruction of T4 lymphocytes=AID) or that AID leads to the development of the clinical syndrome AIDS.
4. The "HIV genome", (RNA or DNA) originates in a unique, exogenously acquired infectious retroviral particle.
5. HIV/AIDS is infectious, either by blood, blood products or sexual intercourse.
6. Mother to child transmission of a retrovirus HIV or its inhibition with AZT or nevirapine.

The Perth Group has argued:
1. The impossibility of haemophiliacs acquiring HIV following factor VIII infusions.
2. That AIDS and all the phenomena inferred as "HIV" are induced by changes in cellular redox brought about by the oxidative nature of substances and exposures common to all the AIDS risk groups and to the cells used in the "culture" and "isolation" of "HIV".
3. That AIDS will not spread outside the original risk groups.
4. That the cessation of exposure to oxidants and/or use of anti-oxidants will improve the outcome of AIDS patients.
5. That the pharmacological data prove AZT cannot kill "HIV" and AZT is toxic to all cells and may cause some cases of AIDS.
