Experiment Eleven: Dark Secrets Behind the Discovery of a Wonder Drug

In 1943, Albert Schatz, a tender Rutgers university Ph. D. scholar, labored on a wartime undertaking in microbiology professor Selman Waksman’s lab, trying to find an antibiotic to struggle infections at the entrance traces and at domestic. In his 11th scan on a standard bacterium present in farmyard soil, Schatz chanced on streptomycin, the 1st powerful therapy for tuberculosis, one of many world’s deadliest illnesses.

As director of Schatz’s learn, Waksman took credits for the invention, belittled Schatz’s paintings, and secretly enriched himself with royalties from the streptomycin patent filed by means of the pharmaceutical corporation Merck. In an unheard of lawsuit, younger Schatz sued Waksman, and used to be presented the identify of “co-discoverer” and a proportion of the royalties. yet years later, Professor Waksman on my own used to be offered the Nobel Prize. Schatz disappeared into educational obscurity.

For the 1st time, acclaimed writer and journalist Peter Pringle unravels the intrigues at the back of some of the most very important discoveries within the historical past of medication. the tale unfolds on a tiny university campus in New Jersey, yet its repercussions unfold around the world. The streptomycin patent was once a leap forward for the drug businesses, overturning patent limits on items of nature and paving the best way for today’s biotech international. As dozens extra antibiotics have been discovered, many from an analogous family members as streptomycin, the drug businesses created oligopolies and reaped mammoth gains. Pringle makes use of firsthand debts and documents within the usa and Europe to bare the intensely human tale at the back of the invention that all started a revolution within the therapy of infectious illnesses and formed the way forward for enormous Pharma.

EPA also has established a standard for uranium mill tailings. 2 mg/m3 (130 pCi/m3). 09 µg/m3) of air and 300 pCi/liter (450 µg/liter) of water. NRC and OSHA expect that the public will normally be exposed to much lower concentrations. For more information about recommendations the federal government has made to protect your health, see Chapter 7. URANIUM 1. 10 WHERE CAN I GET MORE INFORMATION? If you have any more questions or concerns, please contact your community or state health or environmental quality department or Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Division of Toxicology 1600 Clifton Road NE, Mailstop E-29 Atlanta, GA 30333 * Information line and technical assistance Phone: 1-888-42-ATSDR (1-888-422-8737) Fax: (404) 639-6315 or 6324 ATSDR can also tell you the location of occupational and environmental health clinics.

The most toxicologically important of the 22 currently recognized uranium isotopes are anthropogenic uranium-232 (232U) and uranium-233 (233U) and naturally occurring uranium-234 (234U), uranium-235 (235U), and uranium-238 (238U). When an atom of any of these five isotopes decays, it emits an alpha particle (the nucleus of a helium atom) and transforms into a radioactive isotope of another element. The process continues through a series of radionuclides until reaching a stable, non-radioactive isotope of lead.

In this profile, there is little, or equivocal, specific information regarding the influence of radiation from uranium on certain biological effect end points in humans, such as reproductive, developmental, or carcinogenic effects. There is evidence, however, from the large body of literature concerning radioactive substances that alpha radiation can affect these processes in humans (see Appendix D for additional information on the biological effects of radiation). However, because the specific activities of natural and depleted uranium are low, no radiological health hazard is expected from exposure to natural and depleted uranium.
