"The true history of penicillin wireless wireless charging may be bad for your battery and why the alpha dog is a canine satisfy some curiosity. Do you know the real story of penicillin. Let's get into a little science history myth busting here's what you probably know in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight alexander fleming was growing bacteria in petri dishes in his lab ab when he noticed that one had started growing mold that mold had cleared a spot in the bacteria which suggested that it might have antibacterial properties fleming ming names the mold penicillin and became the world's first antibiotic it cured thousands of previously untreatable infections and spawned a new era of human health. That's the story anyway but while the first part is true the facts get hazy as the story goes on. Here's the problem with flemming's discovery. This strain of penicillin dennis ilia mold that he found camping out in his bacterial colonies was really hard to reproduce fleming and his assistance at saint mary's hospital tried for weeks to grow more of the stuff into isolate pure penicillin from the bacteria killing fluid that seeped out from the mold but they just ended up with a crew solution to work with still that was enough to demonstrate mistreat his findings and in one thousand nine hundred nine fleming published a paper about the molds antibacterial action but in the paper he only made a passing reference to penicillins potential intriguing infections. It was nearly a decade later in nineteen thirty eight when dr howard florey came across fleming's paper when studying the different ways that mold and bacteria can kill each other flurry.

"Doesn't seem like a smart idea um so that is what took a long time was to take that mold and isolate what is the compound in here that will help us treat infections and how can we do that just because something worked in a petri dish doesn't always mean it will work in the human body and even if it will making that happen is a that's a big process sleight of research goes into that so it took a long time it actually wasn't until 1940's to now we've jumped from 1928 to nineteen forty dead he was doing this research and he was publishing and another scientists dr howard florey who was a professor pathology at oxford university got really excited about it and said you know i think we can help with us so him and hit and another biochemist that he worked with dr ernst chain started working on this process how can we make more of this mold and isolate what in it will treat nina will kill the staff so the problem that and they they were very successful in doing this except that what they ran into is that it took them 2000 leaders of mold culture so they had to create two thousand leaders of this mold in the lab to isolate enough penicillin which was the key what that was what they call the compound that they found that inhibited the growth of bacteria to treat a single case of sepsis in a person uh that's a lot of mold lot annoyed to treat one person and they were having trouble overcoming that 'cause that what happened is they had this new thing they were using it in their lab in it seemed to work really well um and then there was a local case of a guy albert alexander who was a police constable who had been working in his rose garden when he nicked his face probably i'm assuming a thorn or something and he developed a really horrible say elitest from that infection of a skin and obsessed media big pocket of plus an infection under there he became septic he was dying and they were giving himself a drugs which were around at the time and.
