The Story of César Milstein and Monoclonal Antibodies: Introduction

The Story of César Milstein and Monoclonal Antibodies: Introduction | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
Gilbert C FAURE's insight:

This exhibition of the life and work of César Milstein provides a window into the world where monoclonal antibodies were first developed. Showing Milstein's notebooks and writings for the first time, this exhibition provides first-hand the complexities that were involved in the creation of monoclonal antibodies and brings to life the many challenges scientists face in devising a viable biotechnological tool and its application in healthcare. Transforming monoclonal antibodies, which started life as a laboratory tool into something that could be of use in the outside world was neither straightforward nor inevitable.

All’s Fair in Blood and War | History Today

All’s Fair in Blood and War | History Today | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
Saving lives: US army poster calling for blood donations, 1943. Colour lithograph by Abram Games. It is an extraordinary paradox that war, the cause of so much havoc and misery, could be associated with important life-saving innovations in fields such as haematology. Yet the connections are protean and go back to the beginnings of history. Herodotus tells us that the Scythians drank the blood of their slain enemies, presumably predicated on the belief that blood contained the essence of their bravery, which could be transferred from the victim to the victor.

What Can Vampires Teach Us about Immunology?

What Can Vampires Teach Us about Immunology? | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
Speculative fiction examines the leading edge of science and can be used to introduce
ideas into the classroom. For example, most students are already familiar with the
fictional infectious diseases responsible for vampire and zombie outbreaks. The disease
dynamics of these imaginary ailments follow the same rules we see for real diseases
and can be used to remind students that they already understand the basic rules of
disease ecology and immunology. By engaging writers of this sort of fiction in an
effort to solve problems in immunology we may be able to perform a directed evolution
experiment where we follow the evolution of plots rather than genetic traits.

The 1918 flu, 100 years later

The 1918 flu, 100 years later | History of Immunology | Scoop.it
Combating a disease of unknown cause is a daunting task. One hundred years ago, a pandemic of poorly understood etiology and transmissibility spread worldwide, causing an estimated 50 million deaths. Initially attributed to Haemophilus influenzae , it was not until the 1930s that an H1 subtype was identified as the causative strain. Subsequent influenza pandemics in 1957, 1968, and 2009 did not approach levels of morbidity and mortality comparable to those of the 1918 “Spanish flu,” leaving unanswered for almost a century questions regarding the extraordinary virulence and transmissibility of this unique strain. Technological advances made reconstruction of the 1918 virus possible; now, continued research, vaccine development, and preparedness are essential to ensure that such a devastating public health event is not repeated.
