Alexander Fleming

Alexander Fleming (1881-1955) came from a Scottish family of farmers. He was born in August 1881, at Lochfield Farm, the youngest of eight children. He did research work at St. Marys Hospital under Almroth Wright, pioneer of vaccine therapy and became interested in bacterial action and antibacterial drugs. After military service during which he was able to make further studies of the problems of infections and use of antiseptics, Fleming returned to laboratory work. He was interested in antibacterial tissues.

The first fruit of his search was discovery of the lusoryme. One day Flemings assistant brought him a plate on which was a colony of dangerous bacteria.This plate cannot be used for the experiment, - said the assistant. There some mould has founded on it. I shall take another plate. Fleming was ready to allow him to do so. Then he looked at the plate and saw that there were no bacteria around the mould. Fleming began to study that phenomenon. He grew more colonies. By means of numerous experiments on animals he determined that this new substance was no toxic to the tissues and stopped the growth of the most common pathogenic bacteria. He called this new substance penicillin. His epochal discovery was in 1928 and had a great triumph. He became a father of antibiotics.

A. Fleming received the Nobel Prize for his great discovery. But he said: Everywhere I go people thank me for saving their lives. I dont know why they do it. I didnt do anything. Nature makes penicillin. I only found it.

Task 1

1. Read and translate the text Garlic





To revive







Snake bite 쳿

GARLIC (Alllum sativum)

The use of garlic is so varied and effective that its spread from country to country can surprise no one. As oriel of the oldest known medicinal herbs, garlic has left iisl fraces not only in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, but also, in the Orient and in China. Botanists, together with etymologists have discovered that the Chinese knew garlic at the time of the first Chinese written characters (or letters of the alphabet), because one character represents its Chinese name suan.

However, it is believed that garlic did not originate in China, but Siberia. From there it spread to the Mediterranean, to Sicily, and beyond.

Garlic is believed to improve both people's physical and mental strength. It fortified Roman soldiers before a battle, Greek athletes before a race. It was chewed by the workers building the pyramids who needed every ounce of strength.

As me ancient scholar Pliny the Elder reports, garlic is a cure for colds, ulcers, snake bite, measles, and another 60 ailments and injuries. Garlic was also eagerly sought during dangerous outbreaks of cholera.

Recent research has justified many of these claims. It was proved in 1954 that garlic juice kills bacteria in only three minutes. Unfortunately, these excellent effects are accompanied by a strong smell which is releases when the bulb is crushed, though it can be moderated by drinking milk. Garlic also contains a number of important minerals, including calcium, iron and iodine. It is used to relieve high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries and heart and intestinal difficulties. It also protects people from infectious diseases. So while garlic has rid us of spirits and evil vampires, its campaign against illnesses goes on.

Professor Lesgafts Scientific Research

Professor P.F. Lesgaft was born in 1837. He was a prominent Russian anatomist and a talented teacher. He was the first scientist in our country to work out the science of physical culture. He studied at the Medical Academy. After he graduated from the Academy he worked for the Degree of Doctor of Medicine. This degree was given to him in 1865 and in 1868 he received the Degree of Doctor of Surgery. Then he worked as the Professor at Kazan University. In 1886 he began to deliver lectures in Anatomy in Petersburg.

About 10 scientific works were written by Prof. Lesgaft. Many of them were translated into foreign languages. One of his main works was the book called The Basis of Theoretical Anatomy.

In one of his works which was written in 1892 Prof. Lesgaft divided the muscles into two basic groups static and dynamic. In his work they were called strong and skilled (). He determined that the static muscles were connected with large surfaces of the bones far from the point of their origin; they were formed by short bands of muscular fibers; the dynamic muscles were composed of the bands of long muscular fibers.

His studies on static and dynamic muscles were continued by Professor A.K. Koveshnicova, who received many interesting findings. In 1954 it was determined by her experiments on animals that static and dynamic muscles were different in the number of nerve fibers and the form of nerve endings.

Andreas Vesalius


Andreas Vesalius (1514 1563) is one of the greatest anatomists. He studied medicine in France. In 1537 he got the degree of Doctor of Medicine. In 1538 his first scientific works in Anatomy were published. In 1943 his most important book On the Structure of the Human body was written.

His wok On the Structure of the Human Body consists of seven books. The bones of the skeleton, the joints and cartilages were described in the first book; the muscles in the second; the vessels in the third; the nerves in the fourth; the alimentary tract in the fifth; the heart and respiratory system in the sixth; the brain in the seventh.

In all researches Vesalius studies the anatomy of the human body on corpses. He studied the structure of the inner organs of the human body taking into consideration functions. Vesalius was the first scientist to give a proper description of the human skeleton. He also determined that the right and left ventricles of the heart were not connected. He determined that there were no opening in the septum between the left and right heart chambers. It was a great discovery. Before Vesalius all the scientists considered that the left and the right heart chambers were connected by the opening in the septum. His discovery opened the way to the discovery of the pulmonary and systemic blood circulation in future. Vesalius did much to establish new and exact anatomical terms.

The great Russian scientist Pavlov said that the works written by Vesalius composed the first anatomy of the human body in which everything was based on scientific research work.
