Complete replacement of the mitral valve. Successful clinical application of a flexible polyurethane prosthesis.

J. thorac. cardiovasc. Surg., 40, 1-11, 1960.

Braunwald was the first woman to perform open heart surgery. She was the first woman surgeon certified by the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, and the first woman elected to the American Association for Thoracic Surgery. In 1960, at the age of 32, she led the operative team at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) that implanted the first successful artificial mitral human heart valve replacement, which she had designed and fabricated. This paper described the first and second attempts that Braunwald and Morrow made to replace the mitral valve with a prosthesis. The first patient did not survive, but the second patient lived.

Medical Department of the United States Army in World War II. United States Army Veterinary Service in World War II.

Washington, DC: Office of the Surgeon General, Department of the Army, 1961.

"The Army Veterinary Service has three major missions: (1) Inspection of food used by the military including its processing and the sanitary inspections of the establishments producing it; (2) provision of a comprehensive animal service; and (3) conduct of veterinary laboratory services concerned with food and various types of research. All of these missions assist the Army Medical Service to protect the health of human beings and animals.

"The veterinary animal service, as might have been expected, was the major activity of the Veterinary Corps in World War I. Great numbers of horses and mules were used, in a ratio of one animal to every three men. The outcome of major campaigns frequently depended upon the size and efficiency of animal transport. In World War II, which was a war of men and machines, the ratio was 1 animal to every 134 men. Obviously, in such a war, food inspection was the principal task of the Army Veterinary Service, and medical service for animals was of somewhat lesser importance. In World War I, an estimated 20 percent of Veterinary Corps personnel were utilized to inspect the Army's subsistence supply. In World War II, between 90 and 95 percent were used for this purpose...." (Foreward).

Cerebral organization and behavior: The split brain behaves in many respects like two separate brains, providing new research possibilities.

Science, 133, 1749-1757., 1961.

Sperry and colleagues, including Michael Gazzaniga, conducted extensive experiments on an epileptic patient who had had his corpus collosum, the "bridge" between the left and right hemispheres of the brain, split so that the connection was severed. At first the patient seemed normal, but experimentation showed that certain activities, such as naming objects or putting blocks together in a prescribed way, could only be done when using one side of the brain or the other. (Since the right eye connects to the left brain, the left hand to the right brain, and so on throughout the body, the stimulus would be given to the side of the body opposite the brain hemisphere being tested.) These abilities were not absolute, but it seemed that the left hemisphere specializes in language processes and the right is dominant in visual-construction tasks. Sperry's work helped chart the brain and opened fields of new psychological and philosophical research. For his "left brain - right brain" research Sperry shared the Nobel prize in 1981.

Abstract

"I have proposed that orthodox electrocardiography be implemented, both for research and medical purposes, by the use of long-period, continuous recording of heart potentials with a portable, self-contained instrument-the electrocardiocorder together with semiautomatic methods for the rapid analysis of the resulting voluminous data. An electronic system to make this concept practical has been developed in our laboratory and typical results are described in this article."

Adult frogs derived from the nuclei of single somatic cells.

Developmental Biology 4, 256-73, 1962.

Demonstration that somatic and germinal nuclei are genetically equivalent. Using somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT),  Gurdon (Nobel Prize 2012) transplanted cell nuclei from mature intestinal tadpole cells into enucleated eggs, which developed into normal tadpoles. This contradicted the textbook dogma that adult cells are irrevocably assigned to their specific functions and cannot assume new ones. The egg was able to reprogram the introduced nucleus and direct its genes to switch from the duties of an intestinal cell to those appropriate to a developing egg.

Nomina et virtutes balneorum; seu de balneis Puteolorum et Baiarum. Codex angelico 1474. Facsimile edition, introduction by Angela Daneu Lattanzi.

Written about in the early 13th century by the poet, chronicler and physician Peter of Eboli, the didactic poem, De balneis Putelolanis (The baths of Pozzuoli) was the first widely distributed medieval guidebook to medicinal baths, of which there were 35 in the Pozzuoli region, near Naples. Of copies made from the 13th to 15th centuries, 20 survived, 10 of which were illuminated, each with one miniature for each of the 35 baths described. These are the only surviving examples of medieval secular book illumination on a subject of predominantly local interest as opposed to herbals or romances.

Clinical aspects of immunology.

London: Blackwell, 1963.

Gell-Coombs classification of hypersensitivity. Prior to development of this classification, all forms of hypersensitivity were classified as allergies, "and all were thought to be caused by an improper activation of the immune system. Later, it became clear that several different disease mechanisms were implicated, with the common link to a disordered activation of the immune system. In 1963, a new classification scheme was designed by Philip Gell and Robin Coombs that described four types of hypersensitivity reactions, known as Type I to Type IV hypersensitivity. With this new classification, the word "allergy" was restricted to type I hypersensitivities (also called immediate hypersensitivity), which are characterized as rapidly developing reactions" (Wikipedia article on Allergy, accessed 01-2017).

The martyrdom of Jewish physicians in Poland: Studies by Dr. Leon Wulman and Dr. Joseph Tenenbaum. Research and Documentation by Dr. Leopold Lazarowitz and Dr. Simon Malowist. Edited by Louis Falstein.

New York: Published for the Medical Alliance-Association of Jewish Physicians from Poland by Exposition Press, 1963.

"Of the more than 3 million Jewish Poles that perished during the Holocaust, approximately 3,000 were physicians.  It was the goal of the Alliance members to memorialize those physicians who perished during the Holocaust. The published volume was the product of the work of the original members of the Alliance, the original US members and those physicians who successfully immigrated to the US after the Nazi invasion. Therefore, this volume can be likened to a yizkor book for Polish Jewish physicians....

"Part Three of the volume is entitled “Martyred Physicians”.  It is an alphabetical listing of 2,465 summaries of Polish physicians who were known to have perished or disappeared during the Holocaust.  Each listing has a short summary of basic biographical information about the physician and the details of the physician's death if known" (http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Holocaust/0065_Polish_Martyred_Physicians.html, accessed 01-2017).

Barlow revolutionized thinking about the pathophysiology of mitral regurgitation when he defined the mitral valve prolapse syndrome, which was termed Barlow's syndrome. "Barlow entered the international cardiology scene in 1963 with publication of his landmark paper on the midsystolic click and late systolic murmur, subsequently known as Barlow's syndrome. It was Barlow who demonstrated the fact that the midsystolic click(s) and late systolic murmur were in fact associated with billowing of the mitral valve leaflets and mitral regurgitation, respectively" (Profiles in Cardiology, 460-461).

"In 1959 Bernard Lown commenced research in his animal laboratory in collaboration with engineer Barouh Berkovits into a technique which involved charging of a bank of capacitors to approximately 1000 volts with an energy content of 100-200 joules then delivering the charge through an inductance such as to produce a heavily damped sinusoidal wave of finite duration (~5 milliseconds) to the heart by way of paddle electrodes. This team further developed an understanding of the optimal timing of shock delivery in the cardiac cycle, enabling the application of the device to arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillationatrial flutter, and supraventricular tachycardias in the technique known as "cardioversion" (Wikipedia article on Defibrillation, accessed 4-2020).

Cytological demonstration of the clonal nature of spleen colonies derived from transplanted mouse marrow cells.

Nature, 197, 452-4, 1963.

McCulloch and Till discovered the blood-forming stem cell, the hematopoietic stem cell (HSC), through their pioneering work in mice. McCulloch and Till began a series of experiments in which bone marrow cells were injected into irradiated mice. They observed lumps in the spleens of the mice that were linearly proportional to the number of bone marrow cells injected. They hypothesized that each lump (colony) was a clone arising from a single marrow cell (stem cell). With Andrew Becker they demonstrated that each nodule arose from a single cell.

Nature of the provirus of Rous sarcoma.

National Cancer Institute Monograph 17. Bethesda, Md., National Cancer Institute, pp. 557-70, 1964.

"While studying the Rous sarcoma virus at UW-Madison, Temin began to refer to the genetic material that the virus introduced to the cells, the "provirus". Using the antibiotic, actinomycin D, which inhibits the expression of DNA, he determined that the provirus was DNA or was located on the cell's DNA.[7][8][9] These results implied that the infecting Rous sarcoma virus was somehow generating complementary double-stranded DNA. Temin's description of how tumor viruses act on the genetic material of the cell through reverse transcription was revolutionary. This upset the widely held belief at the time of a popularized version of the "Central Dogma" of molecular biology posited by Nobel laureate Francis Crick, one of the co-discoverers of the structure of DNA (along with James Watson and Rosalind Franklin). Crick had claimed only that sequence information cannot flow out of protein into DNA or RNA, but he was commonly interpreted as saying that information flows exclusively from DNA to RNA to protein. Many highly respected scientists disregarded his work and declared it impossible. Despite the lack of support from the scientific community, Temin continued to search for evidence to support his idea" (Wikipedia article on Howard Martin Temin, accessed 3-2020).

Temin shared the Nobel Prize with D. Baltimore and R. Dulbecco in 1975.

MEDLINE

1964.

From the Wikipedia article on MEDLINE, accessed 12-2016:

MEDLINE (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online, or MEDLARS Online) is a bibliographic database of life sciences and biomedical information. It includes bibliographic information for articles from academic journals covering medicinenursingpharmacydentistryveterinary medicine, and health care. MEDLINE also covers much of the literature in biology and biochemistry, as well as fields such as molecular evolution.

Compiled by the United States National Library of Medicine (NLM), MEDLINE is freely available on the Internet and searchable via PubMed and NLM's National Center for Biotechnology Information's Entrez system.

MEDLARS (Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System) is a computerised biomedical bibliographic retrieval system. It was launched by the National Library of Medicine in 1964 and was the first large scale, computer based, retrospective search service available to the general public.[1]

Initial development of MEDLARS[edit]

Since 1879, the National Library of Medicine had published Index Medicus, a monthly guide to medical articles in thousands of journals. The huge volume of bibliographic citations were manually compiled. In 1957 the staff of the NLM started to plan the mechanization of the Index Medicus, prompted by a desire for a better way to manipulate all this information, not only for Index Medicus but also to produce subsidiary products. By 1960 a detailed specification was prepared and by the spring of 1961 a request for proposals was sent out to 72 companies to develop the system. As a result, a contract was awarded to the General Electric Company. The computer (a Minneapolis-Honeywell 800) which was to run MEDLARS was delivered to the NLM in March 1963, and Frank Bradway Rogers(Director of the NLM 1949 to 1963) said at the time "..If all goes well, the January 1964 issue of Index Medicus will be ready to emerge from the system at the end of this year. It may be that this will mark the beginning of a new era in medical bibliography."

MEDLARS cost $3 million to develop and at the time of its completion in 1964, no other publicly available, fully operational electronic storage and retrieval system of its magnitude existed. The original computer configuration operated from 1964 until its replacement by MEDLARS II in January 1975.[2][3]

MEDLARS Online

In late 1971, an online version called MEDLINE ("MEDLARS Online") became available as a way to do online searching of MEDLARS from remote medical libraries.[4] This early system covered 239 journals and boasted that it could support as many as 25 simultaneous online users (remotely logged-in from distant medical libraries) at one time.[5] However, this system remained primarily in the hands of libraries, with researchers able to submit pre-programmed search tasks to librarians and obtain results on printouts, but rarely able to interact with the NLM computer output in real-time. This situation continued through the beginning of the 1990s and the rise of the World Wide Web.

In 1996, soon after most home computers began automatically bundling efficient web browsers, a free public version of MEDLINE was instigated. This system, called PubMed, was offered to the general online user in June, 1997, when MEDLINE searches via the Web were demonstrated, in a public ceremony, by Vice President Al Gore.[5]

Database

The database contains more than 26 million records[6] from 5,639 selected publications[7] covering biomedicine and health from 1950 to the present. Originally the database covered articles starting from 1965, but this has been enhanced, and records as far back as 1950/51 are now available within the main index. The database is freely accessible on the Internet via the PubMed interface and new citations are added Tuesday through Saturday. For citations added during 1995-2003: about 48% are for cited articles published in the U.S., about 88% are published in English, and about 76% have English abstracts written by authors of the articles.

Retrieval

MEDLINE uses Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) for information retrieval. Engines designed to search MEDLINE (such as Entrez and PubMed) generally use a Boolean expression combining MeSH terms, words in abstract and title of the article, author names, date of publication, etc. Entrez and PubMed can also find articles similar to a given one based on a mathematical scoring system that takes into account the similarity of word content of the abstracts and titles of two articles.[8]"

Clinical observations using the Electrocardiocorder-AVSEP continuous electrocardiographic system. Tentative standards and typical patterns.

American Journal of Cardiology, 14, 204-217, 1964.

Documentation of the value of the Holter monitor in clinical work.

Abstract

"We have described characteristic patterns observed using the Electrocardiocorder-AVSEP system for recording continuous electrocardiograms on both active and inactive subjects. We have extended previously well recognized observations made in conventional electrocardiography to the effect that the S-T segment in the normal varies somewhat from time to time, and T wave varies much more. We have shown examples in normal subjects of unusually flat ST-T segments with unusual variation in contour. We have also developed some appreciation of how often and how much the total AVSEP pattern can change during dynamic situations, especially the magnitude of normal T wave changes. The appearance of common arrhythmias as seen in this system, as well as some of the artifacts associated with it, has also been demonstrated. Examples of how this system develops patterns which differ in some respects from those seen in conventional electrocardiograms have been described and illustrated, especially those differences which arise from the nature of this new electrocardiographic recording and presentation system. (Examples are the features we have termed for convenience the pre-T notch and the post-T dip.) The reliability of the Electrocardiocorder-AVSEP system as originated at the Holter Foundation Laboratory has been demonstrated under a wide variety of circumstances during an extended series of trials. We emphasize the need for familiarity with the idiosyncrasies of this system and its patterns before drawing clinical conclusions from the observations.
This partial review of our experiences with the Electrocardiocorder-AVSEP system as used in 230 subjects establishes these new devices as practical tools for observing electrocardiographic phenomena continuously during a wide range of dynamic situations."

Space medicine in Project Mercury.

Washington, DC: National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1965.

"Project Mercury was the first human spaceflight program of the United States, running from 1958 through 1963. An early highlight of the Space Race, its goal was to put a man into Earth orbit and return him safely, ideally before the Soviet Union. Taken over from the U.S. Air Forceby the newly created civilian space agency NASA, it conducted twenty unmanned developmental flights (some using animals), and six successful flights by astronauts. The program, which took its name from Roman mythology, cost $277 million in 1965 US dollars, and involved the work of 2 million people.[1] The astronauts were collectively known as the "Mercury Seven", and each spacecraft was given a name ending with a "7" by its pilot" (Wikipedia).

The Environment and disease: Association or causation?

Proc. roy. Soc. Med., 58, 295-300., 1965.

"In 1965, the English statistician Sir Austin Bradford Hill proposed a set of nine criteria to provide epidemiologic evidence of a causal relationship between a presumed cause and an observed effect. (For example, he demonstrated the connection between cigarette smoking and lung cancer.) The list of the criteria is as follows:[1]

  1. Strength (effect size): A small association does not mean that there is not a causal effect, though the larger the association, the more likely that it is causal.
  2. Consistency (reproducibility): Consistent findings observed by different persons in different places with different samples strengthens the likelihood of an effect.
  3. Specificity: Causation is likely if there is a very specific population at a specific site and disease with no other likely explanation. The more specific an association between a factor and an effect is, the bigger the probability of a causal relationship.[1]
  4. Temporality: The effect has to occur after the cause (and if there is an expected delay between the cause and expected effect, then the effect must occur after that delay).
  5. Biological gradient: Greater exposure should generally lead to greater incidence of the effect. However, in some cases, the mere presence of the factor can trigger the effect. In other cases, an inverse proportion is observed: greater exposure leads to lower incidence.[1]
  6. Plausibility: A plausible mechanism between cause and effect is helpful (but Hill noted that knowledge of the mechanism is limited by current knowledge).
  7. Coherence: Coherence between epidemiological and laboratory findings increases the likelihood of an effect. However, Hill noted that "... lack of such [laboratory] evidence cannot nullify the epidemiological effect on associations".
  8. Experiment: "Occasionally it is possible to appeal to experimental evidence".
  9. Analogy: The use of analogies or similarities between the observed association and any other associations.
  10. Some authors consider also, the Reversibility: If the cause is deleted then the effect should disappear as well" (Wikipedia article on Bradford Hill criteria, accessed 7-2019)

Cultivation of viruses from a high proportion of patients with colds.

Lancet, 287, 76-77, 1966.

"The history of human coronaviruses began in 1965 when Tyrrell and Bynoe found that they could passage a virus named B814. It was found in human embryonic tracheal organ cultures obtained from the respiratory tract of an adult with a common cold. The presence of an infectious agent was demonstrated by inoculating the medium from these cultures intranasally in human volunteers; colds were produced in a significant proportion of subjects, but Tyrrell and Bynoe were unable to grow the agent in tissue culture at that time. At about the same time, Hamre and Procknow were able to grow a virus with unusual properties in tissue culture from samples obtained from medical students with colds. Both B814 and Hamre's virus, which she called 229E, were ether-sensitive and therefore presumably required a lipid-containing coat for infectivity, but these 2 viruses were not related to any known myxo- or paramyxoviruses. While working in the laboratory of Robert Chanock at the National Institutes of Health, McIntosh et al reported the recovery of multiple strains of ether-sensitive agents from the human respiratory tract by using a technique similar to that of Tyrrell and Bynoe. These viruses were termed “OC” to designate that they were grown in organ cultures....

"In the late 1960s, Tyrrell was leading a group of virologists working with the human strains and a number of animal viruses. These included infectious bronchitis virus, mouse hepatitis virus and transmissible gastroenteritis virus of swine, all of which had been demonstrated to be morphologically the same as seen through electron microscopy. This new group of viruses was named coronavirus (corona denoting the crown-like appearance of the surface projections) and was later officially accepted as a new genus of viruses."

Te Rongoa Maori: Maori medicine.

Dunedin, New Zealand: Reed, 1966.

"Arriving in Kaikohe (in the Far North) as a pharmacist he [the author] "passed into a new world as far as medicine was concerned." He found that customers made their own "concoctions" and were under the influence of the tohunga (native priest) as there was only one doctor in the district who visited once a week. Williams was to become the "doctor, vet, social worker and friend to the local residents, although it was some time before "they had enough faith in me to tell what (plants) they were using." Williams was 93 when the book was first published and his service to the Far North community extended through the Depression years, the Second World War and for many years after. His public service included 24 years as Northland Hospital Board chairman and 10 years as a member of the NZ Hospital Boards' Association. Williams says that most of the information in the book was passed on by kuia (older Maori women) and from his own observations, adding that "I have just recorded what older Maori taught me, but I take no responsibility for their efficiency." The book first appeared at a time when there was a renewed interest in traditional Maori remedies and the plants used preparing them and the frequency of reprints shows that it had reached many interested in the topic. The book covers more that 40 different plant species, describing their habitat and medicinal uses" (publisher).

"During the course of the criminal investigation, another type of fraud came to light. For a variety of reasons, some patients had arranged to be artificially inseminated with sperm provided by screened, anonymous donors arranged by [Cecil Bryan] Jacobson. In order to preserve the anonymity of the donors, Jacobson explained, he identified them in records using code numbers; only Jacobson was to know their true identities. Investigators found no evidence that any donor program actually existed. Some of Jacobson's patients who had conceived through donor insemination agreed to genetic testing. At least seven instances were identified in which Jacobson was the biological father of the patients' children, including one patient who was supposed to have been inseminated with sperm provided by her husband. DNA tests linked Jacobson to at least 15 such children, and it has been suspected that he fathered as many as 75 children by impregnating patients with his own sperm" (Wikipedia article on Cecil Jacobson, accessed 05-22-2015).

Composition of tubular fluid in the macula densa segment as a factor regulating the function of the juxtaglomerular apparatus.

Circulation Research, 21 (Suppl.2) 79-90., 1967.

"This demonstration of 'tubulo-glomerular feedback' therefore provided mechanistic insights into one of the fundamental homeostatic functions of the kidney—the ability to conserve salt and water. Adjusting filtered sodium load to match tubular reabsorptive capacity is essential to prevent excessive urinary sodium losses that would quickly result in cardiovascular collapse. Demonstration of this feedback loop between the tubular and glomerular portions of the same nepron provided a new dimension to understanding the nephron as a single, connected physiological unit" (Feehally et al, Landmark papers in nephrology [2013] 1.4, p. 9) With J.

Plague prevention and politics in Manchuria, 1910-1931.

Leiden & Boston: Brill, 1967.

"The Chinese winter of 1910-1911 was one of death and discontent: an epidemic of pneumonic plague—the greatest since the Black Death of the fourteenth century—scourged China's three Eastern Provinces (Manchuria), and famine afflicted the Central Provinces. The Manchurian plague claimed some fifty thousand lives in four months, and the famine took thousands more. Not all the hungry died, but no one sick with plague survived; there were, claimed one source, 43,942 cases and 43,942 deaths. While famine neither affected the foreigners in China nor menaced international frontiers, plague threatened to do both. World powers held privileged positions in a backward China, and some, especially Russia and Japan, feared that the plague would endanger their resident populations, compromise commercial interests, and spread to contiguous national territories. The epidemic also provided Russia and Japan with a potential excuse to take over plague control—and perhaps more—in Chinese territory, incursions the Chinese Government obviously wished to avoid. Thus did mortality and diplomacy confront each other in Manchuria during 1910-1911.

In need of medical help, but needing also to fend off growing political and military pressures, the Imperial Chinese Government at first requested assistance and then called for an International Plague Conference, a step unprecedented in China's history. Richard Pearson Strong became the chief United States delegate to the conference which was held in Manchuria at Mukden in April 1911,3 and his three-month stay in China brought him into prominence" (Chernin, Richard Pearson Strong and the Manchurian epidemic of penumonic plague, 1910-1911, " J. Hist. Med. All. Sci, 44 (1989) 296-319; quote from p. 296).

Self replication and scrapie.

Nature, 215, 1043-1044, 1967.

Griffith discussed complex physical chemistry mechanisms by which the scrapie agent could arise from information encoded in protein structure which could then be transferred to other protein molecules. He also considered means by which the same protein might take up different conformations (some being disease related) without changes in its primary structure, and the polymerization of the protein might provide it with different biological properties. He hypothesized that protein could undergo "self replication."

Does the agent of scrapie replicate without nucleic acids?

Nature, 214, 764-766, 1967.

This paper, which predated Griffith's' paper (No. 12833), demonstrated that the scrapie agent replicates without nucleic acids. Alper and colleagues irradiated scrapie infected mouse brain extracts with lethal ultraviolet rays at both 254-265 and 280-285 wavelengths, which would kill all viruses and bacteria then known, and inactivate or destroy nucleic acids. They did not draw the conclusion that the scapie agent must be associated with a protein, but that was the clear implication of their research. This paper was a catalyst for Griffith to develop the work published in No. 12833.

An uneasy equilibrium: Private and public financing of health service in the United States 1875-1965.

The central theme of this book is that health policy in the Unitesd States is the product of a deep ambivalence in public attitudes that on the one hand support a private, market-oriented health provision system, while on the other hand favoring a collective, increasingly public, means of financing. In 1985 Anderson issued what was essentially a revised and extended version of this book as Health services in the United States: A growth enterprise since 1875 (Ann Arbor, MI: Health Adminstration Press, 1985).

A definition of irreversible coma. Report of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Harvard Medical School to examine the definition of brain death.

J. Amer. Med. Assoc., 205(6), 337-40., 1968.

This report described the following characteristics of a permanently nonfunctioning brain, a condition it referred to as "irreversible coma," now known as brain death: 1. Unreceptivity and unresponsitivity--patient shows total unawareness to external stimuli and unresponsiveness to painful stimuli; 2. No movements or breathing--all spontaneous muscular movement, spontaneous respiration and response to stimuli are absent; 3. No reflexes--fixed, dilated pupils; lack of eye movement even when hit or turned, or ice water is placed in the ear; lack of response to noxious stimuli; unelicitable tendon reflexes. In addition to these criteria, a flat electroencephalogram (EEG) was recommended. The committee also noted that drug intoxication and hypothermia which can both cause reversible loss of brain functions should be excluded as causes. The report was used in determining patient care issues and organ transplants. The condition of irreversible coma, i.e., brain death, needs to be distinguished from the persistent vegetative state, in which clinical presentations are similar but in which patients manifest cycles of sleep and wakefulness.

The study began in 1948 with 5,209 adult subjects from Framingham, and is now on its third generation of participants.[1] Prior to it almost nothing was known about the "epidemiology of hypertensive or arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease".[2] Much of the now-common knowledge concerning heart disease, such as the effects of dietexercise, and common medications such as aspirin, is based on this longitudinal study. It is a project of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, in collaboration with (since 1971) Boston University.[1] "(Wikipedia article on Framingham Heart Study)

Kuru and cannibalism.

Lancet, 292, 449-452., 1968.

Medical anthropologists Lindenbaum and Glass demonstrated that Kuru was transmitted in New Guinea by cannibalism--particularly by eating the brains of infected victims, which were the reservoir of prions. Order of authorship in the original publication was Matthews, Glasse, Lindenbaum.

"Lindenbaum and Glasse discovered that the Fore people partook in a ritual called mortuary cannibalism, where kin honored the dead by feasting on their cooked bodies. People avoided eating kin who died of dysentery and leprosy, but did not shy away from eating people who died of kuru. Through oral histories, it was determined that the kuru epidemic had begun among the northernmost Fore at the turn of the century, some time in the 1890s. It is now presumed that a spontaneous case of Creutzfeldt Jacob Disease (like kuru, a prion-related disorder) occurred at that time. When that person died and was consumed by kin, the kuru epidemic spread further south. Lindenbaum and Glasse noted also that the geographic spread of kuru closely matched the practice of mortuary cannibalism throughout this region, providing substantial evidence that cannibalism was the mode of transmission. Moreover, the research team noted that women and children were primarily impacted by kuru, which matched with the participants in this tradition. Men were less likely than women to partake in mortuary cannibalism, and when they did, they were less likely to eat women. As a result, men were less likely to get kuru compared to women and children.[2] Professor Lindenbaum's work was originally resisted by genetic and biomedical researchers who insisted the disease was likely genetic and non-infectious" (Wikipedia article on Shirley Lindenbaum, accessed 6-2019.)

Order of authorship in the original publication: Linn, Arber. Arber announced the discovery, with proof, of the first restriction endonuclease (restriction enzyme or restrictase)."These enzymes are found in bacteria and archaea and provide a defence mechanism against invading viruses.[4][5] Inside a prokaryote, the restriction enzymes selectively cut up foreign DNA in a process called restriction digestion; meanwhile, host DNA is protected by a modification enzyme (a methyltransferase) that modifies the prokaryotic DNA and blocks cleavage. Together, these two processes form the restriction modification system.[6]"

Correspondence of Pasteur & Thuillier concerning anthrax and swine fever vaccinations. Translated and edited by Robert M. Frank and Denise Wrotnowska. Preface by Louis Pasteur Vallery-Radot.

Birmingham, AL: University of Alabama Press, 1968.

Edition and translation of about 60 letters mostly between Pasteur and his protegé Louis Thuillier in the Reynolds Historical Library at the University of Alabama. During the period involved in this correspondence "Thuillier conducted a series of vaccinations against anthrax in sheep and cattle in Germany and Austria-Hungary. It is believed that Pasteur intended to conduct the vaccinations himself, but was constrained by other responsibilities from doing the job in person. Relying on Thuillier as a surrogate prompted a steady stream of letters between protégé and mentor, detailing the successes, failures and obstacles faced in the project. Tragically, the relationship between Pasteur and Thuillier ended just over a month after the completion of the vaccination tests in Germany. As that project ended, Pasteur sent Thuillier with three other scientists to study a cholera epidemic in Egypt. Thuillier became ill, most likely from cholera and died on September 18, 1883 at age 27."

Response to exercise after bed rest and after training.

Circulation, 38 (5 Suppl.) VII1-VII78, 1968.

Order of authorship in the original publication: Saltin, Blomqvist, Mitchell, Johnson, Wildenthal, Chapman. Chapman planned the Dallas Bed Rest and Training Study, which defined the degree to which the level of habitual physical activity determines cardiovascular capacity, and measured the extent to which prolonged bed rest causes cardiovascular deterioration. The findings provided a firm physiological rationale for early ambulation of patients after acute myocardial infarction and quantified the potential benefits of exercise rehabilitation.

Several follow-up studies to this research occurred and appeared in various journals. See Jere H. Mitchell, Benjamin D. Levine, Darren K. McGuire,"The Dallas Bed Rest and Training Study revisited after fifty years," Circulation, 140 (2019) 1293-1295.

Evolutionary rate at the molecular level.

Nature, 217, 624-626, 1968.

Using complex mathematics, Motoo Kimura calculated that genomes constantly undergo a remarkably high number of mutations per unit of time. He wrote, "Calculating the rate of evolution in terms of nucleotide substitutions seems to give a value so high that many of the mutations involved must be neutral ones."  Motoo Kimura's theory holds that most evolutionary changes occur at the molecular level, and that most of the variation within and between species is due to random genetic drift of mutant alleles that are selectively neutral -- neither advantageous or disadvantageous. Kimura does not discuss natural selection in his paper; however, his theory does not contradict traditional Darwinian theory that evolution occurs through the natural selection of non-neutral, advantageous variants in a given population. Kimura expanded his theory in his 1983 book The neutral theory of molecular evolution.

In 2021 a digital facsimile of the 1968 paper was available from blackwellpublishing.com at this link.

First description of the hepatitis B vaccine, the first cancer vaccine, US patent 3636191A. Millman and Blumberg discovered that the blood of individuals carrying the hepatitis B virus contained particles of the outside coating of the virus. This coating, hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), is not infectious; however, HBsAg can provoke an immune response. To develop a vaccine, Millman and Blumberg invented a method of detaching the coatings from the virus. See B. S. Blumberg, editor, Hepatitis B and the Prevention of Primary Cancer of the Liver.

On death and dying.

New York: Simon & Schuster, 1969.

"The Kübler-Ross model - otherwise known as the five stages of grief - postulates a progression of emotional states experienced by both terminally ill patients after diagnosis and by loved-ones after a death. The five stages are chronologically: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

"The model was first introduced by Swiss psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her 1969 book On Death and Dying, and was inspired by her work with terminally ill patients.[1] Motivated by the lack of instruction in medical schools on the subject of death and dying, Kübler-Ross examined death and those faced with it at the University of Chicago medical school. Kübler-Ross' project evolved into a series of seminars which, along with patient interviews and previous research, became the foundation for her book.[2]

"Kübler-Ross noted later in life that the stages are not a linear and predictable progression and that she regretted writing them in a way that was misunderstood.[3]"

Transexualism and sex reassignment. Edited by Richard Green and John Money.

Baltimore, MD: The Johns Hopkins University Press, 1969.

Probably the first scientific book on transsexuality issued by a university press.

"Transsexualism and Sex Reassignment had its origins in the advisory board meetings of the Henry Benjamin Foundation. In the earliest stages, it was discussed as a volume that would embody the findings of the research group working directly under the auspices of the Foundation. it soon became evident that such a limitation would make the book unnecessarily parochial. It would, for example, have excluded those patients who were treated and operated at the newly constituted John Hopkins Gender Identity Clinic and who were not also patients in the Harry Benjamin Foundation research study, as well as the important body of work being done elsewhere, especially in Europe."

Stuttgart: Georg Thieme & New York: Academic Press, 1969.

Most of the chapters in this book were written by Yasargil. Chapter one: "A history of microsurgery" by R. M. P. Donaghy includes a bibliography of the earliest published references on this subject.

"In 1958 RMP Donaghy established the word's first microsurgery research and training laboratory in Burlington, Vermont. In 1960, Jacobson and Suarez, working in this laboratory, performed a successful small-vessel anastomosis using the microscope. Then, collaborating with Hans Littman of the Zeiss Corporation in Germany, they designed the diploscope, a stereoscopic microscope utilising the beam-splitter technology, to allow a second surgeon to assist the operating surgeon.

"In 1966, MG Yasargil attended this pioneering microneurosurgical laboratory of Donaghy, and returned to Zurich to make these microneurosurgical techniques an integral part of modern neurosurgery. He performed the first superficial temporal artery to middle cerebral artery anastomosis under an operating microscope in 1967 and also established a training laboratory in Zurich...."

"In October 1965, Dr Yasargil began his training in vascular microsurgery in Burlington, USA [12]. He was 40 years old and already had 13 years of experience in classic neurosurgical procedures [3]. On December 3rd, 1966, he started working on dog’s middle cerebral arteries and in the next day on basilar artery, and he considers this as the birth of microneurosurgery [14]. He also developed the technique for transplantation of the superficial temporal artery to the middle cerebral artery by end-to-side anastomosis [24]. During this time, he also started working with bipolar coagulation, created a few years earlier by Len Malis [13]. In this period, he started to travel around the USA organizing meetings to divulgate and integrate new techniques in microsurgery, which began a series of microneurosurgical courses around the world in the next years [13].

In 1967, he began the microneurosurgery routine in Zürich, performing 103 operations in the first year [1]; the number soon increased, and the outcomes have been published in the six volumes of the book Microneurosurgery [23]."....

"His ingenuity in developing microsurgical techniques for use in cerebrovascular neurosurgery has transformed the outcomes of patients with conditions that were previously inoperable [2]. He conceived microsurgical instruments, retractors, floating microscope, and aneurysm clips [24]. Every neurosurgical procedure performed today has been affected by his work [4]" (Lovato, Araujo, et al, "The legacy of Yasargil: the father of modern neurosurgery," Indian J. Surg., 78 (2016) 77-78)
