Edward Jenner and the History of Smallpox and Vaccination
The history of a disease known to few people in the 21st century, the origin of smallpox as a natural dis-ease is lost in prehistory, and Edward Jenner’s work is widely regarded as the foundation of im-munology.
The Past, Present and Future of Vaccines
Children who are born by caesarean section develop in the first years of life, and often later as well, some complications linked to the malfunctioning of their immune system, not only because they do not have the beneficial maternal “contagion” of useful bacteria but also because they can be damaged by infections due to the pathogenic bacteria present on the skin and in the hospital environment.
The Jenner Society and the Edward Jenner Museum: tributes to a physician-scientist.
The aims of the new Jenner Society are to engage, support, and sustain the professional goals of vaccinologists, and to perpetuate the memory of Dr. Edward Jenner.
Translational Mini‐Review Series on Vaccines: The Edward Jenner Museum and the history of vaccination
- MedicineClinical and experimental immunology
The Edward Jenner museum is a museum in which the life and times of Jenner are commemorated including not only the discovery of smallpox vaccination but also his other important scientific contributions to natural history and medicine.
Smallpox and New York City’s Smallpox Hospital
- MedicineJournal of community health
The ruins of the smallpox hospital in New York City, opened in 1856, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and at night, the ruins are illuminated casting an eerie, green aura on the remaining stone walls.
Designing spatial and temporal control of vaccine responses
- MedicineNature Reviews Materials
This Review explores materials-based strategies for the spatial and temporal control of the mechanisms that underlie vaccine immune responses and highlights the biological mechanisms underlying strong humoral and cell-mediated immune responses.
Contributions of Farm Animals to Immunology
- Biology, MedicineFront. Vet. Sci.
From the identification of B cells to the realization that γδ T cells can function as professional antigen presenting cells, farm animals have contributed significantly to a better understanding of immunity.
History of Infectious Diseases and Vaccines in Society: Introduction
Vaccine development through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries has resulted in the eradication of smallpox, is close to eradicating polio, and is responsible for the elimination of many diseases locally and regionally.
Correlates of protective immunity in poxvirus infection: where does antibody stand?
- Biology, MedicineImmunology and cell biology
Host immune parameters in response to a secondary ECTV infection are investigated, and it is identified that interferon and CD8T cell effector functions are not essential; however, T‐ and B‐cell interaction and antibody are absolutely critical for recovery from a secondary challenge.
Historical context and the roots of Jenner's discovery
- MedicineHuman vaccines & immunotherapeutics
May 2016 marks the 220th anniversary of Edward Jenner's first experimental vaccination using cowpox to protect against smallpox, which launched a medical revolution that continues to shape how the authors approach disease prevention.

I have been struck by the fact that the majority of great medical discoveries, truths and instruments, have not been made completely and suddenly, but have been led up to by preliminary and…
History and Pathology of Vaccination
- MedicineEdinburgh Medical Journal
The work consists primarily of an unsuccessful attempt to settle the question of vaccination in the light of the authors readings and observations as to the nature of cow-pox and the sources of vaccine lymph; and, secondarily, of an attempt to reconci e the facts of history with the conclusions thus arrived at.
Myths in medicine
The Jenner myth, a common belief among farmers in the west country that previous infection with cowpox prevented small-pox, is laid to rest.
