A Great Discovery

Mention fermentation to moat people, and they think of beer - or
maytte sauerkraut. But to the great French scientist Louis Pasteur,
fomentation was the key to a whole new concept of life - a startling
insight which enabled him to lay the foundation of modern medicine.
JEst a hundred years ago, Pasteur plunged the scientific world
into frantic controversy when he *.

Monumental germ theory of dis-
ease upon which most of today's
medicine is based.
Even today, Pasteur’s work
continues to guide scientist* into
i -w fields of research. Recently,
extinguished scientist* from oil
l arts of the world gathered in
!\fw York for the Pasteur Fer-
mentation Centennial, an event
r'arking the anniversary of the
! iHication of Pasteur’s paper of
1557. The conference, chaired by
ltr. Jgmes A. Shannon, director
cf the National Institutes of
Health, was sponsored by Chas.

t on which turaad Pasteur, a
c'”9mist by training and profes-
sion, to th« ttudy of tbs proces-
ses of life — a turning point with
enormous consequences for the
l.eslth of the world. „
. Today, an entira branch of the
chemical industry is based on
fermentation, and from this in-
dustry comes one of the world’s
greatest boons — antibiotics.
They bring Pasteur’s researches
full circle: the fermentation pro-
cess ho studied now helps nght
the disease germs whose impor-
tance he established.
One subject which Pasteur
wanted to explore, but never
managed to find time for, was the
chemical interplay between the
sick patient and the germ that
invaded him. Modern research
into tiiis subject was discussed
at the Pasteur Ferment*tiers
Centennial by Dr. Rone J. Duboo
of the Rockefeller Institute for
Medical Research. Dr. Dubos, a
pioneer in antibiotic* studies,
also has written a biography of
Among other eminent scien-
tists from six countries, includ-
ing Russia, who took part in the
Centennial program was Dr.
Louis Pasteur Vallery-Radot,
grandson of the great French
scientist and President of the
Pasteur Institute of France. I>r.
Pasteur Vallery-Radot, who
looks amazingly like his eminent
grandfather, also discussed mod-

tions of Tasteur’s key discov-
Participsn's included scien-
tists from the United Kingdom,

ties. scientific foundations, in-
dustry, Federal and state isn

Thus, though a century has
passed, the genius cf Fasteur
continues to influence tha mind
of science throughout the world.
