Transcript

  • 1. Smallpox: The fight begins against infectious diseases. Mr McDonald
  • 2. What we will learn today:
    • Why was smallpox so deadly.
    • Who was Edward Jenner.
    • What was his theory?
    • What was the significance of his idea.
  • 3. Smallpox
    • In the eighteenth century, smallpox was a killer disease.
    • The victims who contracted the disease had frightening symptoms.
    • The symptoms were a high fever, sores over the body and when the disease spread to the organs it was a certain death.
    • People who survived were terribly scarred.
  • 4. Inoculation
    • One idea to combat smallpox was inoculation.
    • This was when people deliberately infected themselves with a weakened version.
    • It did not often work.
  • 5. Edward Jenner (1749 – 1823)
    • Doctor from rural Gloucestershire.
    • Studied under a great doctor (James Hunter) in scientific observations.
    • Jenner noted that an old tale that milk maids did not catch smallpox appeared to be true.
  • 6. The Theory in Practice
    • In 1796, Jenner decided to test out his theory by experimentation. He heeded the words of his mentor John Hunter “don’t think – try the experiment.”
    • He needed two things for his experiment.
    • Someone who has never had either cowpox or smallpox.
    • And the diseases
  • 7. The experiment
    • Sarah Nelmes , milkmaid had cowpox matter taken from her hand and placed via a cut into James Phipps, an 8 year old.
  • 8. The experiment
    • The boy caught cowpox and was ill. Six weeks later, he was given smallpox by Jenner.
    • He had no symptoms – he was vaccinated.
    • The term Vaccination comes from Vacca meaning cow – Blossom the cow was famous!
  • 9. Reaction
    • Not everyone welcomed it.
      • Some people thought that they would turn into cows
      • Others argued that as Jenner did not know why it worked they feared it would not.
      • Doctors who got rich by inoculation did not like it.
  • 10. Reaction to smallpox vaccine
  • 11. Long term reaction
    • By 1800, 100,000 people had been vaccinated.
    • Napoleon vaccinated his entire army in 1805.
    • In 1980, smallpox was deemed to have been eradicated by the WHO (World Health Organisation).
