Viruses, Plagues, and History

The tale of viruses and the tale of humanity were intertwined because the sunrise of historical past. the 1st small towns shaped not just the cradle of civilization, however the spawning flooring for the earliest viral epidemics, the 1st chance for viruses to discover a house within the human herd. it is a tale of worry and lack of awareness, as every little thing from demons and the wrath of the gods to minority teams were blamed for epidemics from smallpox to yellow fever to AIDS.

For example, the first description of the vasoconstrictor peptide endothelin and its amino acid sequence were published in the same paper (68) in 1988 and within a few years pharmacological antagonists of this system were developed. ” The reason for this is obvious—scientific discovery is based on previous work, and each new observation or new method spawns more research, more publications, and so forth. Our challenge for the next millennium will be to effectively utilize the technological advances that are taking place in virtually all areas of science.
