Third Term Test
Alexander Fleming, a Scottish [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], discovered penicillin by mistake when he was trying to study Staphylococcus bacteria in 1928. He was running experiments with the bacteria in his laboratory at London's St. Mary's Hospital, and set a laboratory dish containing the bacteria near an open window. Upon returning to the experiment, he found that some mold blown in through the open window onto the dish, contaminating the bacteria.
Instead of throwing away his spoiled experiment, Fleming looked closely at it under his microscope. Surprisingly, he saw not only the mold growing on the bacteria, but a clear zone around the mold. The Penicillium mold, the precursor to penicillin, was dissolving the deadly Staphylococcus bacteria.
Fleming was originally optimistic that penicillin would be useful as an antibacterial agent, as it was safe for the human body, yet potent. Later, in 1931, he changed his mind and decided that it would not last in humans for the duration needed to kill [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], and stopped studying it. In 1934, he began another few years of clinical trials and tried to find someone else to purify it.
Researchers at Oxford University in England, including Howard Florey, Ernst Chain, and Norman Heatley, experimented with Fleming's discovery. They proved that penicillin would be both harmless and effective in mice, but did not yet have the volume needed to treat people. Orvan Hess and John Bumstead were the first people to use it to successfully treat a patient.
