Cowpox: reservoir hosts and geographic range. (1/60)

It is generally accepted that the reservoir hosts of cowpox virus are wild rodents, although direct evidence for this is lacking for much of the virus's geographic range. Here, through a combination of serology and PCR, we demonstrate conclusively that the main hosts in Great Britain are bank voles, wood mice and short-tailed field voles. However, we also suggest that wood mice may not be able to maintain infection alone, explaining the absence of cowpox from Ireland where voles are generally not found. Infection in wild rodents varies seasonally, and this variation probably underlies the marked seasonal incidence of infection in accidental hosts such as humans and domestic cats.  (+info)

Transmission dynamics of a zoonotic pathogen within and between wildlife host species. (2/60)

The transmission dynamics of the cowpox virus infection have been quantified in two mixed populations of bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus) and wood mice (Apodemus sylvaticus), through analyses of detailed time-series of the numbers of susceptible, infectious and newly infected individuals. The cowpox virus is a zoonosis which circulates in these rodent hosts and has been shown to have an adverse effect on reproductive output. The transmission dynamics within species is best described as frequency dependent rather than density dependent, contrary to the 'mass action' assumption of most previous studies, both theoretical and empirical. Estimation of a transmission coefficient for each species in each population also allows annual and seasonal variations in transmission dynamics to be investigated through an analysis of regression residuals. Transmission between host species is found to be negligible despite their close cohabitation. The consequences of this for the combining ability of hosts as zoonotic reservoirs, and for apparent competition between hosts, are discussed.  (+info)

Cidofovir protects mice against lethal aerosol or intranasal cowpox virus challenge. (3/60)

The efficacy of cidofovir for treatment of cowpox virus infection in BALB/c mice was investigated in an effort to evaluate new therapies for virulent orthopoxvirus infections of the respiratory tract in a small animal model. Exposure to 2(-5)x10(6) pfu of cowpox virus by aerosol or intranasally (inl) was lethal in 3- to 7-week-old animals. One inoculation of 100 mg/kg cidofovir on day 0, 2, or 4, with respect to aerosol infection, resulted in 90%-100% survival. Treatment on day 0 reduced peak pulmonary virus titers 10- to 100-fold, reduced the severity of viral pneumonitis, and prevented pulmonary hemorrhage. The same dose on day -6 to 2 protected 80%-100% of inl infected mice, whereas 1 inoculation on day -16 to -8 or day 3 to 6 was partially protective. Cidofovir delayed but did not prevent the death of inl infected mice with severe combined immunodeficiency. Treatment at the time of tail scarification with vaccinia virus did not block vaccination efficacy.  (+info)

A longitudinal study of an endemic disease in its wildlife reservoir: cowpox and wild rodents. (4/60)

Cowpox is an orthopoxvirus infection endemic in European wild rodents, but with a wide host range including human beings. In this longitudinal study we examined cowpox in two wild rodent species, bank voles Clethrionomys glareolus and wood mice Apodemus sylvaticus, to investigate the dynamics of a virus in its wild reservoir host. Trapping was carried out at 4-weekly intervals over 3 years and each animal caught was uniquely identified, blood sampled and tested for antibodies to cowpox. Antibody prevalence was higher in bank voles than in wood mice and seroconversion varied seasonally, with peaks in autumn. Infection was most common in males of both species but no clear association with age was demonstrated. This study provides a model for studying other zoonotic infections that derive from wild mammals since other approaches, such as one-off samples, will fail to detect the variation in infection and thus, risk to human health, demonstrated here.  (+info)

Rat-to-human transmission of Cowpox infection. (5/60)

We isolated Cowpox virus (CPXV) from the ulcerative eyelid lesions of a 14-year-old girl, who had cared for a clinically ill wild rat that later died. CPXV isolated from the rat (Rattus norvegicus) showed complete homology with the girl's virus. Our case is the first proven rat-to-human transmission of cowpox.  (+info)

Aerosolized cidofovir is retained in the respiratory tract and protects mice against intranasal cowpox virus challenge. (6/60)

We employed a murine model to test the concept of using an aerosolized, long-acting antiviral drug to protect humans against smallpox. We previously showed that a low dose of aerosolized cidofovir (HPMPC [Vistide]) was highly protective against subsequent aerosolized cowpox virus challenge and was more effective than a much larger dose of drug given by injection, suggesting that aerosolized cidofovir is retained in the lung. Because the nephrotoxicity of cidofovir is a major concern in therapy, delivering the drug directly to the respiratory tract might be an effective prophylactic strategy that maximizes the tissue concentration at the site of initial viral replication, while minimizing its accumulation in the kidneys. In the present study, we found that treating mice with aerosolized (14)C-labeled cidofovir ((14)C-cidofovir) resulted in the prolonged retention of radiolabeled drug in the lungs at levels greatly exceeding those in the kidneys. In contrast, subcutaneous injection produced much higher concentrations of (14)C-cidofovir in the kidneys than in the lungs over the 96-h time course of the study. As further evidence of the protective efficacy of aerosolized cidofovir, we found that aerosol treatment before or after infection was highly protective in mice challenged intranasally with cowpox virus. All or nearly all mice that were treated once by aerosol, from 2 days before to 2 days after challenge, survived intranasal infection, whereas all placebo-treated animals died.  (+info)

Efficacy of multiple- or single-dose cidofovir against vaccinia and cowpox virus infections in mice. (7/60)

Orthopoxviruses, including variola and monkeypox, pose risks to human health through natural transmission or potential bioterrorist activities. Since vaccination has not recently been utilized for control of these infections, there is renewed effort in the development of antiviral agents not only for postexposure smallpox therapy but also for treatment of adverse reactions following vaccination. The objectives of this study were to expand on the results of others that cidofovir (CDV) is effective in mice inoculated with cowpox virus (CV) or vaccinia virus (VV) and to document the efficacy of single and interval dosing beginning prior to or after infection, particularly including evaluations using suboptimal doses of CDV. We utilized BALB/c or SCID mice inoculated with CV or VV as models for systemic poxvirus infections. BALB/c mice were inoculated intranasally with CV or VV and treated with CDV prior to or after virus inoculation. CDV, at concentrations as low as 0.7 to 6.7 mg/kg of body weight/day for 5 days, conferred significant protection when treatment was initiated as late as 72 to 96 h postinfection. A single-dose pretreatment or posttreatment with CDV at 3 to 100 mg/kg was effective when given as early as 5 days prior to infection or as late as 3 days after infection with either VV or CV. Interval treatments given every third day beginning 72 h postinfection using 6.7 or 2 mg of CDV/kg also proved effective against CV infections. When SCID mice were inoculated intraperitoneally with CV or VV and treated for 7 to 30 days with CDV, all the mice eventually died during or after cessation of treatment; however, significant delays in time to death and reduction of virus replication in organs occurred in most treated groups, and no resistance to CDV was detected.  (+info)

Cowpox with severe generalized eruption, Finland. (8/60)

Cowpox with a severe, generalized eruption was diagnosed in an atopic 4-year-old girl by electron microscopy, virus isolation, polymerase chain reaction, and immunoglobulin (Ig) M and low-avidity IgG antibodies. The hemagglutinin gene of the isolate clustered with a Russian cowpox virus strain, and more distantly, with other cowpox and vaccinia virus strains. The patient's dog had orthopoxvirus-specific antibodies, indicating a possible transmission route. In Finnish wild rodents, orthopoxvirus seroprevalences were 0%-92%, in humans the seroprevalence was 100% in the age group >50, decreasing towards younger age groups.  (+info)

Cowpox is an zoonotic viral disease from the Poxiviridae family and stems from the Orthopoxvirus genus. It causes postular lesions on teats and udders of female cows. Cowpox is transmitted to humans who may milk the infected cow. Cowpox is related to the variola virus (smallpox) which is exclusive to humans with a mortality rate of 40 % when infected [5]. The pathogen is easily transferred in areas of high population, poverty , poor malnutrition and sanitation which create favorable conditions, as with any other virus. Smallpox was one of the first vaccines made and was generated through cowpox[8]. During the 16th century Edward Jenner investigated claims that farmers or milkmaids that came in contact with cowpox did not develop smallpox. He used the cowpox virus to create his own vaccine. After much rejection, his research and theory were accepted[6]. Today the World Health Organization is heavily dedicated to continue eradicating smallpox. This year alone it cost 1 billion to save lives of ...
Cowpox is a disease. This disease affects the skin. It is caused by a virus (Cowpox virus) that is related to the Vaccinia virus. People (or animals) who have the disease have red blisters. The disease can be spread by touch from cows to humans. The virus that causes cowpox was used to perform the first successful vaccination against another disease. The disease vaccinated against was the deadly smallpox. Smallpox is caused by the related Variola virus. Therefore, the word vaccination has the Latin root vaca meaning cow. In 1798 the English physician Edward Jenner made a curious observation. Jenner lived in the countryside, not in the city. Some of his patients had gotten cowpox, and recovered from it. He observed that those patients did not get the disease again, they seemed to be immune against it. What was more, they also seemed to be immune against smallpox. Smallpox was a deadly disease then, that killed most of the people it infected. So he used the fluid he got from cowpox lesions, and ...

Calpox virus / marmoset model - a new animal model for orthopox virus infections. During an outbreak of an atypical cowpox virus infection in a private monkey husbandry, a virus similar to cowpox virus was isolated and called Calpox virus. In the course of the endemic outbreak, 30 out of 80 animals died. Affected animals showed symptoms of a severe systemic infection with typical erosive-ulcerative to vesicular lesions, particularly on the oral mucous membranes and in the skin. Thus, the disease beared resemblance to variola virus infections of humans.. The newly isolated and characterized virus was used in an experimental study with New World monkeys (Callithrix jacchus). The animals were infected intranasally with different dosages of the virus and developed a well reproducible disease pattern. They fell sick after an incubation period of 12 to 14 days and died within 2 to 3 days after first clinical symptoms. Clinical symptoms after experimental infection were comparable to those of the first ...

Do you like injections? Of course not. Who does? If you had lived two hundred and fourteen years ago you could have escaped trips to the doctor for shots. But then, you might also have gotten bubonic plague, yellow fever, typhoid, rabies, diphtheria, smallpox, or SARS. And now the influenza H1N1 virus scares. Dr. Edward Jenner, a physician in rural England in the late 1700s became interested in preventing smallpox. As he traveled around he noticed a relationship between that disease and cowpox. Dairymen and milkmaids often caught the milder sickness, from the cows. Dr. Jenner noticed, however, that such people never contracted the more serious smallpox. To his theory, Dr. Jenner got permission from the parents of 8-year-old James Philipps to inoculate their healthy son. On May 14, 1796, the doctor made a small cut on the boys skin and put pus from a cowpox sore into the wound. In a few days James developed one small sore and had a slight fever. Six weeks later Dr. Jenner made another cut on ...

Youve got a big job.. You took it on the moment your child was born, knowing that protecting him was a lifetime assignment. And now, as part of that job, youre questioning the viability of a rite that children have undergone for decades: vaccinate or not?. Youve read the pros and the cons, and your mind swims. But once you read On Immunity: An Inoculation by Eula Biss, youll understand a little more.. While modern medicine is surely that, vaccination has been around for quite awhile: in the mid-1700s, many noticed that milkmaids exposed to cowpox were immune to smallpox, and they acted accordingly. Even before that, though, parents in China and India practiced a form of vaccination called variolation. And before that, birth was the original inoculation.. As the daughter of a doctor, Eula Biss got the full round of vaccines that most babies of her generation received. She debated, however, about vaccinating her own son from a strain of flu that was going around when he was an infant, ...
The disease was a factor in Gen. Richard Montgomerys decision to launch a final desperate assault, which failed miserably and resulted in the capture of 400 American prisoners of war. Inoculation isnt to be confused with vaccination, the procedure developed by Edward Jenner in 1798 in which cowpox, a milder variant of the disease, is introduced to create immunity. The patient comes down with smallpox, but for reasons still not clearly understood, the symptoms are milder and the fatality rate lower than among those who catch the disease normally.

Traditionally, virus taxonomy relied on phenotypic properties; however, a sequence-based virus taxonomy has become essential since the recent requirement of a species to exhibit monophyly. The species Cowpox virus has failed to meet this requirement, necessitating a reexamination of this species. Here, we report the genomic sequences of nine Cowpox viruses and, by combining them with the available data of 37 additional genomes, confirm polyphyly of Cowpox viruses and find statistical support based on genetic data for more than a dozen species. These results are discussed in light of the current International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses species definition, as well as immediate and future implications for poxvirus taxonomic classification schemes. Data support the recognition of five monophyletic clades of Cowpox viruses as valid species.
The vertebrate immune system uses multiple, sometimes redundant, mechanisms to contain pathogenic microorganisms that are always evolving to evade host defenses. Thus, the cowpox virus (CPXV) uses genes encoding CPXV12 and CPXV203 to prevent direct MHC class I presentation of viral peptides by infected cells. However, CD8 T cells are effectively primed against CPXV by cross-presentation of viral Ags in young mice. Old mice accumulate defects in both CD8 T cell activation and cross-presentation. Using a double-deletion mutant (∆12∆203) of CPXV, we show that direct priming of CD8 T cells in old mice yields superior recall responses, establishing a key contribution of this mechanism to host antipoxvirus responses and enhancing our fundamental understanding of how viral manipulation of direct presentation impacts pathogenesis ...
All animals are anatomically constrained in the number of discrete call types they can produce. Recent studies suggest that by combining existing calls into meaningful sequences, animals can increase the information content of their vocal repertoire despite these constraints. Additionally, signalers can use vocal signatures or cues correlated to other individual traits or contexts to increase the information encoded in their vocalizations. However, encoding multiple vocal signatures or cues using the same components of vocalizations usually reduces the signals reliability. Segregation of information could effectively circumvent this trade-off. In this study we investigate how banded mongooses (Mungos mungo) encode multiple vocal signatures or cues in their frequently emitted graded single syllable close calls. The data for this study were collected on a wild, but habituated, population of banded mongooses. Using behavioral observations and acoustical analysis we found that close calls contain two

Edward Jenner was born in Berkeley, Gloucestershire on May 18, 1749, the son of the local vicar. At the age of 14, he was apprenticed to a local surgeon and then trained in London. In 1772, he returned to Berkeley and spent most of the rest of his career as a doctor in his native town.. In 1796, he carried out his now famous experiment on eight-year-old James Phipps. Jenner inserted pus taken from a cowpox pustule and inserted it into an incision on the boys arm. He was testing his theory, drawn from the folklore of the countryside, that milkmaids who suffered the mild disease of cowpox never contracted smallpox, one of the greatest killers of the period, particularly amongst children. Jenner subsequently proved that having been inoculated with cowpox Phipps was immune to smallpox. He submitted a paper to the Royal Society in 1797, describing his experiment but was told that his ideas were too revolutionary and that he needed more proof. Undaunted, Jenner experimented on several other children, ...
Inside the avoidance of infectious conditions, an even more important innovation came about in close proximity to the start in the 19th century Using the introduction of smallpox vaccine. From the late 1790s the English surgeon Edward Jenner noticed that milkmaids who had been contaminated Using the somewhat benign cowpox virus ended up shielded towards the a lot more fatal smallpox. Immediately after this observation he created an immunization procedure determined by the usage of crude material in the cowpox lesions. This achievement was adopted in 1885 by the event of rabies vaccine because of the French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur ...

Edward Jenner, (17 May 1749 - 26 January 1823) was an English physician who was a contributor to development of the smallpox vaccine. The practice of vaccination was popularized by Jenner, and since then has been used ubiquitously to prevent several diseases. The terms vaccine and vaccination are derived from Variolae vaccinae (smallpox of the cow), the term devised by Jenner to denote cowpox. He used it in 1798 in the long title of his Inquiry into the Variolae vaccinae known as the Cow Pox, in which he described the protective effect of cowpox against smallpox.. Jenner is often called a pioneer of immunization. Using a method valid in immunology before the discovery of germ theory, his work saved many lives. In Jenners time, smallpox killed around 10% of the British population, with the number as high as 20% in towns and cities where infection spread more easily. In 1821, Jenner was appointed physician extraordinary to King George IV, and was also made mayor of Berkeley and justice of the ...
In 1718, Lady Mary Wortley Montague (wife of a British Ambassador) performed variolation on her own children and observed its positive effect. In 1798, Edward Jenner, an English physician significantly improved the method. He introduced the fluid from a cowpox pustule into the milk maids and others having smallpox and protected them. He intentionally infected a 8-year old child with fluid from a cowpox pustule and then smallpox. The child did not develop smallpox. A major advancement was made in the area of immunology by Louis Pasteur. He cultured pathogenic bacteria causing cholera and demonstrated that chickens injected with cultured bacteria developed cholera. Surprisingly, when he injected the chickens with old culture of cholera, the chickens became ill; thereafter they got recovered. When such chickens were injected with fresh culture of cholera, the chickens were completely protected from the disease. Pasteur put forth a hypothesis that the ageing has weakened the virulence of the ...

Actually, inoculate really does mean stick it in your eye. Thats the way the first smallpox immunizations were administered. Serum was made from victims of vaccinia (a related viral disease, cowpox. As one might suspect, since vaca is cow. Smallpox is variola.) and it was instilled into the eye of the protectee after the doctor pulled the lower lid down to make a sac to drip a drop or two into. So it was literally an in-ocul-ation, and then the word got generalized to mean any immunization against you-name-it disease, no matter where it was given ...

As we strive to reach out to every infected person on the planet, funding must not stop for research. A vaccine is the most affordable and most effective way to stop the pandemic and we have to keep pushing in that direction. My supervisor gave a talk last week in which she outlined where we are in terms of vaccine research. She opened the talk remembering how the first vaccine was discovered: the English physician Edward Jenner (1749 - 1823) rubbed pus collected from blisters milkmaids received from cowpox on his gardners eight-year-old son. He then exposed the boy to pox, twice, and noticed that they boy didnt develop the disease. The audience was of course horrified when my supervisor mentioned the sacrifice of the little boy, and yet when she went on describing how long and, most importantly, how much money is needed to develop and test a vaccine, a girl in the audience raised her hand and asked: Well, maybe you cant take an eight-year-old boy, but wouldnt you be better off testing the ...
This is even more confusing to me than the whole leather bicycle accessory controversy. I always thought when a wanted animal (like a cat) killed an unwanted animal (like a mouse) that this was cause for celebration, and so in the case of a dog killing a rat I would think that the same general rule would apply. Really, my only concern in the dog-on-rat scenario would be the that the rat could give the dog a disease--or, given the ample size and strength of New Yorks rodents, that the rat might win the fight, disguise itself in the dogs hide, infiltrate its owners home, and then make off with the contents of his or her apartment. Sure, I realize that what constitutes a wanted animal is somewhat arbitrary, but Id also argue that if your pet rat were to successfully protect you from a feral dog that the same standard should apply. And of course, endangered animals are always an exception, so if your pet rat defends you from a panda thats like totally uncool, even if the panda was stealing ...
If that segment of reality TV actually does reflect reality, Hansens decision to keep the rat could end up costing the Northwestern up to $200 grand.

More than six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, all eyes are on biopharma companies to deliver a safe and effective vaccine and to do so at record-breaking speed. To truly understand how colossal of a feat this is, we look at the vaccines that changed history and how they compare to the innovation of today.. Smallpox was one of the deadliest diseases known to humankind. While its origin is largely unknown, the earliest written description of a disease that resembles smallpox dates back to the 4th century. Centuries later in 1796, Edward Jenner observed that milkmaids who previously caught cowpox did not catch smallpox. Using this observation, he demonstrated that inoculated vaccinia protected against inoculated variola virus and introduced the smallpox vaccine - the first successful vaccine. People were vaccinated through arm-to-arm inoculation, taking fluid from a blister of someone infected with cowpox and injecting it into another persons skin. Smallpox remained widespread until 1966 ...
Edward Jenner (1796-1839) discovered that cowpox vaccine would supposedly innoculate persons against the eighteenth century scourge of smallpox. In fact, smallpox was already on the wane, and some authorities believe it would have vanished by the end of the century, due to a number of contributing factors. After the use of cowpox vaccine became widespread in England, a smallpox epidemic broke in which killed 22,081 people. The smallpox epidemic became worse each year that the vaccine was used. In 1872, 44,480 people were killed by it. England finally banned the vaccine in 1948, despite the fact that it was one of the most widely heralded contribution which that country had made to modern medicine. This action came after many years of compulsory vaccination, during which period those who refused to submit to its dangers were hurried off to jail.[E] page 136-137 ...
But all that has changed, thanks to the work of Edward Jenner, an English physician practicing in the late 1700s. Jenner observed that milkmaids rarely contract smallpox. He knew that milkmaids were often in contact with cows infected with a virus that caused a disease similar to smallpox.. Jenner hypothesized that contact with cowpox protected milkmaids from smallpox without causing any symptoms. He tested his hypothesis by scraping material from cowpox lesions and scratching this material into the skin of healthy individuals including his own son. This early form of vaccination proved effective, providing protection against smallpox infection.. This video by Dartford Technology College shows the story of Edward Jenner and his discovery.. ...

It has been established that there are critical temperatures above which no cytopathological action of smallpox and parasmallpox viruses manifest themselves in a tissue culture of chick fibroplasts. The difference in critical temperatures for smallpox and parasmallpox viruses on the one hand and vaccine and cowpox viruses on the other makes it possible to differentiate them.

One final analogy: we are aware that introducing the cowpox virus into our body causes the immune system to gear up and produce antibodies that also happen to be effective against smallpox. What isnt commonly known, however, is that inoculation against one disease increases the bodys resistance to others. A 1986 English study showed a decrease in death from malignant disease for all who were inoculated, as children, for any one of eight diseases. Children inoculated against measles, for example, had a better chance to survive diphtheria or whooping cough, even while lacking those specific inoculations ...
Vaccine-Induced Protection against Orthopoxvirus Infection Is Mediated through the Combined Functions of CD4 T Cell-Dependent Antibody and CD8 T Cell Responses
A viral infection, smallpox spread along trade routes in Africa, Asia, and Europe, reaching the Americas in the 16th century. Because smallpox requires a human host to survive, it smoldered in densely populated areas, erupting in a full-blown epidemic every ten years or so. Wherever it appeared, smallpox caused blindness, sterility, scarring, and death. In Africa and Asia, smallpox was traditionally contained through variolation-deliberately infecting an individual with a controllable case of smallpox to confer lifelong immunity. Variolation spread from Asia and Africa into Europe and the Americas during the 18th century. This practice had its dangers, as recipients of variolation could develop a full-blown case of smallpox. In 1798, the English physician Edward Jenner developed a safer technique: vaccination with cowpox (vacca is the Latin word for cow). He based his discovery on existing folk knowledge but provided scientific proof of its veracity by testing the vaccine on a young child. In ...

1. Mathematical models for infectious diseases typically use contact rates (e.g. the number of other people a person encounters per day) as one of their main elements in predicting the outcomes of an epidemic. The aim of my project is to investigate the importance of spatial constraints and individual heterogeneity on the rate of contact of wildlife using field voles (Microtus agrestis) as a case study. By spatial constraints, I mean the importance that spatial distance plays in the rate of contact. Furthermore by individual heterogeneity, I mean the importance of characteristics such as mass and sex in determining the rate of contact.. We intuitively know that the further apart two individuals/voles are from each other, the harder it would be for a pathogen to spread. But how far is far? Incorporating these spatial constraints into the rate of contact models would help us investigate this. Studying characteristics such as mass and sex would help us investigate the features of dominant hubs in ...
Monkeypox is a disease caused by a germ (virus) and is similar to camelpox, smallpox and cowpox. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
Scientists are quickly searching for alternative treatments for todays killer germs. One place theyre looking is into the past.. Before antibiotics, and before science even knew what a germ was, humans relied on inoculation, which later became known as vaccination. This treatment works by making the bodys own immune system aware of invading cells, like bacterial or viral infections, so that it can kill them off.. One of the earliest breakthroughs was the cure for smallpox discovered in the late 1700s. Edward Jenner (the father of immunology) took pus from a milkmaid infected with cowpox (smallpox for cows, which can be transmitted to humans, but is not deadly) and gave it to a young boy. A few weeks later, Jenner intentionally exposed the boy to smallpox, but the boy never got ill.. Todays scientists are reexamining therapies like these hoping to find backup or replacement solutions to antibiotics.. ...
The word virus appeared in 1599 and originally meant venom.[11] A very early form of vaccination known as variolation was developed several thousand years ago in China. It involved the application of materials from smallpox sufferers in order to immunize others. In 1717 Lady Mary Wortley Montagu observed the practice in Istanbul and attempted to popularize it in Britain, but encountered considerable resistance. In 1796 Edward Jenner developed a much safer method, using cowpox to successfully immunize a young boy against smallpox, and this practice was widely adopted. Vaccinations against other viral diseases followed, including the successful rabies vaccination by Louis Pasteur in 1886. The nature of viruses, however, was not clear to these researchers. In 1892, the Russian biologist Dmitry Ivanovsky used a Chamberland filter to try to isolate the bacteria that caused tobacco mosaic disease. His experiments showed that crushed leaf extracts from infected tobacco plants remained infectious ...

Public health measures in the developed world have dramatically reduced mortality from viral epidemics. But when epidemics do occur, they can spread quickly with global air travel. In 2009, an outbreak of H1N1 influenza spread across various continents. In early 2014, cases of Ebola in Guinea led to a massive epidemic in western Africa. This included the case of an infected man who traveled to the United States, sparking fears the epidemic might spread beyond Africa.. Until the late 1930s and the advent of the electron microscope, no one had seen a virus. Yet treatments for preventing or curing viral infections were used and developed long before that. Historical records suggest that by the 17th century, and perhaps earlier, inoculation (also known as variolation) was being used to prevent the viral disease smallpox in various parts of the world. By the late 18th century, Englishman Edward Jenner was inoculating patients with cowpox to prevent smallpox, a technique he coined ...
April 20th is World Animal Vaccination Day, a day to recognise the importance and success of vaccination in keeping our pets and farm animals healthy and happy. The idea of vaccination has been around for hundreds of years and was first discovered by Edward Jenner, when he was able to stop a small boy from getting smallpox by vaccinating him with a similar virus called cowpox. Since then many vaccines have been created and are used daily to keep animals from getting deadly diseases such as Canine Parvovirus and Feline Leukaemia Virus Read more ...
December 5th, 2012 at 3:50 pm This might be a great moment for medicine but not for humankind. The increase of smallpox among those vaccinated with cowpox went up from 5% to 95% in 1895, with the mortality rate going up five-fold at the same time. The truth about vaccines and disease outbreaks is hidden from public view. Just this year, the conclusion at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center is that whooping cough occurs more among vaccinated children than unvaccinated. I used to look at Edward Jenner with the eyes of childhood (having read of him as a child). My eyes are now opened and I fight to protect my children from experimental processes and known toxic ingredients. I prefer Gods amazing immune system and keeping that pure in my childrens blood. Information such as this can be found in Dr. Tenpennys Saying No to Vaccines or on health websites such as naturalnews.com.. ...
