Introductio generalis in rem herbariam.

Leipzig: Christoph. Günther, 1690.

Rivinus (Bachmann) introduced the concept of classification of plants based upon the structure of the flower.  He also introduced the ORDER as a distinct rank of biological classification having its own distinctive name (and not just called a higher genus (genus summum)). Rivinus developed and explained his classification system in the following extensively illustrated treatises:

Ordo Plantarum qvae sunt Flore Irregulari Monopetalo. Lipsiae: Typis Christoph. Fleischeri, 1690.
Ordo Plantarum qvae sunt Flore Irregulari Tetrapetalo. Lipsiae: Typis Christoph. Fleischeri, 1691.

Prodromus historiae generalis plantarum, in quo familiae plantarum per tabulas disponuntur.

Montpellier: Gabriel et Honorat Pech, 1689.

Magnol invented of the concept of plant families, a natural classification, based on combinations of morphological character.  "In his Prodromus he developed 75 tables, which not only grouped plants into families but also allowed for an easy and rapid identification by means of the morphological characters, the same he used to compose the groups....In 1703 Charles Plumier (1646–1704) named a flowering tree from the island of Martinique Magnolia, after Magnol.[6] The name was later adopted by William Sherard, when he did the nomenclatural parts of Hortus Elthamensis by Johann Jacob Dillenius, and The Natural History of Carolina by Mark Catesby, to denote a flowering tree now known as Magnolia virginiana, taking it for the same species as that described by Plumier. Linnaeus took over this name in the first edition of Species plantarum, including references to both Plumier's and Sherard's names. In this way, Magnolia became the generally recognized name of a large genus of ornamental flowering trees"

Mémoire comparatif sur l'histoire naturelle de l'insecte de la gale.

Paris: Au bureau du Bulletin général de thérapeutique & Baillière, 1834.

Raspail first described and illustrated the Sarcoptes scabei, diffrentiating it from the horse's sarcopt and the cheese moth that Galès and Patrix, followed by Alibert, had confused with the scabies parasite. Raspail published this Memoir following experiments by Simon François Renucci, who was the first to extract the acarus and place it under the microscope in August 1834. Renucci published his discovery after the present publication of Raspail in his inaugural thesis on the discovery of the insect which produces the contagion of scabies, prurigo and phlyzacia. (No. 4027). Renucci's thesis was sustained on April 6, 1835. Raspail illustrated his pamphlet with two plates, the first of which, representing the human scabies or sarcopte, was printed his own drawings.

Marwān ibn Janāh, on the nomenclature of medicinal drugs (Kitāb al-Talkhīs). Edition, translation and commentary with special reference to the Ibero-Romance terminology. By Gerrit Bos and Fabian Käs. 2 vols.

Leiden & Boston: Brill, 2020.

"In early eleventh century Zaragoza, the eminent Jewish scholar Abū l-Walīd Marwān ibn Janāḥ wrote a glossary containing almost 1100 entries, entitled Kitāb al-Talkhīṣ. This important text, considered lost until recently, contains Arabic and foreign-language names of simple drugs, weights, measures, and other medical terms. In the present volume, the Kitāb al-Talkhīṣ is edited and translated for the first time by Gerrit Bos and Fabian Käs. In detailed commentaries, the editors identify the substances mentioned in the Talkhīṣ. They also elaborate on the role of the text in the history of Arabic glossaries concerned with medical nomenclature. Special attention is paid to Ibn Janāḥ’s Ibero-Romance phytonyms, analysed in depth by Mailyn Lübke and Guido Mensching" (publisher).

McGill Library. William Osler Letter Index.

Montréal: McGill University, 19201924.

https://osler-letters.library.mcgill.ca/about

"About the William Osler Letter Collection

"Sir William Osler (1849-1919) is one of the most renowned and respected physicians in medical history. Born in Bond Head, Ontario in 1849, he studied medicine at McGill University and went on to teach at McGill and the University of Pennsylvania. In 1889 he was one of the "Big Four" founders of the Johns Hopkins Medical School and Hospital. He became Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford University in 1905 and was knighted in 1911 in recognition of his contributions to medical science and teaching.

"Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) was a pioneering neurosurgeon and close friend to Sir William Osler. Upon Osler's death in 1919, Dr. Cushing undertook to write his biography at Lady Osler’s request. Between 1920 and 1924, Dr. Cushing collected over 7 000 letters to and from Sir William, notes and excerpts from manuscripts. Many of these were copied and the originals returned to their owners. In 1925 Cushing published the two-volume Life of Sir William Osler, which won the Pulitzer Prize the following year. Dr. Cushing later donated his research material to the Osler Library. 

"These materials, especially the letters, are an important source for Oslerian research. This online index provides access to information about materials that was previously only available to on-site visitors. It is intended to increase awareness and use of this rich collection.

Circumstances affecting the heat of the sun's rays.

Am. J. Sci. Arts, 22, 382-383, 1856.

Foote was the first scientist known to have experimented on the warming effect of sunlight on different gases. In this two-page paper she theorized that changing the proportion of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere would change its temperature.

"Foote conducted a series of experiments that demonstrated the interactions of the sun's rays on different gases. She used an air pump, four mercury thermometers, and two glass cylinders. First she placed two thermometers in each cylinder, then by using the air pump, she evacuated the air from one cylinder and compressed it in the other. Allowing both cylinders to reach the same temperature, she placed the cylinders in the sunlight to measure temperature variance once heated and under different moisture conditions. She performed this experiment on CO
2
, common air, and hydrogen.[11] Of the gases she tested, Foote concluded that carbon dioxide (CO
2
) trapped the most heat, reaching a temperature of 125 °F (52 °C).[12] From this experiment, she stated "“The receiver containing this gas became itself much heated—very sensibly more so than the other—and on being removed [from the Sun], it was many times as long in cooling.”[13] Looking to the history of the Earth, Foote theorized that "An atmosphere of that gas would give to our earth a high temperature; and if, as some suppose, at one period of its history, the air had mixed with it a larger proportion than at present, an increased temperature from its own action, as well as from increased weight, must have necessarily resulted."[14][15](Wikipedia article on Eunice Newton Foote, accessed 8-2021).

"Witebsky helped develop procedures for the isolation and partial characterization of A and B blood antigens. He also began the practice of neutralization of certain antibodies in the blood of universal blood donors.

"In 1957 he co-authored a paper the "Witebsky's postulates" which determined whether a disease entity could be regarded as an autoimmune disease:[4]

  • Direct demonstration of free circulating antibodies active at body temperature.
  • Recognition of the specific antigen (for this antibody).
  • Production of antibodies against same antigen in experimental animals.

Immediate "kangaroo mother care" and survival of infants with low birth weight.

New Engl. J. Med, 384, 2028-2038, 2021.

This study demonstrated that "vulnerable infants have a better chance of survival if they start receiving 'kangaroo mother care'--which calls for babies to spend as much time as possible in direct contact with a carefgiver's skin--immediately after birth."

From the abstract:

"Methods
"We conducted a randomized, controlled trial in five hospitals in Ghana, India, Malawi, Nigeria, and Tanzania involving infants with a birth weight between 1.0 and 1.799 kg who were assigned to receive immediate kangaroo mother care (intervention) or conventional care in an incubator or a radiant warmer until their condition stabilized and kangaroo mother care thereafter (control). The primary outcomes were death in the neonatal period (the first 28 days of life) and in the first 72 hours of life.

"Results
"A total of 3211 infants and their mothers were randomly assigned to the intervention group (1609 infants with their mothers) or the control group (1602 infants with their mothers). The median daily duration of skin-to-skin contact in the neonatal intensive care unit was 16.9 hours (interquartile range, 13.0 to 19.7) in the intervention group and 1.5 hours (interquartile range, 0.3 to 3.3) in the control group. Neonatal death occurred in the first 28 days in 191 infants in the intervention group (12.0%) and in 249 infants in the control group (15.7%) (relative risk of death, 0.75; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.64 to 0.89; P=0.001); neonatal death in the first 72 hours of life occurred in 74 infants in the intervention group (4.6%) and in 92 infants in the control group (5.8%) (relative risk of death, 0.77; 95% CI, 0.58 to 1.04; P=0.09). The trial was stopped early on the recommendation of the data and safety monitoring board owing to the finding of reduced mortality among infants receiving immediate kangaroo mother care.

"Conclusions
"Among infants with a birth weight between 1.0 and 1.799 kg, those who received immediate kangaroo mother care had lower mortality at 28 days than those who received conventional care with kangaroo mother care initiated after stabilization; the between-group difference favoring immediate kangaroo mother care at 72 hours was not significant."

Distinct viral reservoirs in individuals with spontaneous control of HIV-1.

Nature, 585, 261-267, 2020.

The authors describe a mechanism for the observed natural viral "immunity" of individuals with spontaneous control of HIV-1. A very few exceptional people have the molecular ability to steer the incoming/infecting cellular virus into the "heterochromatin" areas of their cellular genome where the virus genome is totally segregated, locked in and dormant. Consequentially, over time, most of these patients do not have any detectable virus in the blood. Of the patients reported here, one had no functional HIV viral copies in 1.5 billion cells counted, although a few "non-functional" copies were found. Another had just one functional viral copy of HIV in more than 1 billion blood cells analyzed. Order of authorship in the original paper: Jiang, Lian, Gao....

Cryo-EM structure of the 2019-nCoV spike in the prefusion conformation.

Science, 367, 1260-1263, 2020.

Posted online on February 17, 2020. 2019-nCoV was an interim name for the Novel Coronavirus. These studies, which included the 3D structure of the RBD (receptor binding domain) within the S protein, provided information fundamental to the development of the mRNA vaccines for Covid-19.

From the commentary at the begining of the paper:

"The World Health Organization has declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) to be a public health emergency of international concern. The virus binds to host cells through its trimeric spike glycoprotein, making this protein a key target for potential therapies and diagnostics. Wrapp et al. determined a 3.5-angstrom-resolution structure of the 2019-nCoV trimeric spike protein by cryo–electron microscopy. Using biophysical assays, the authors show that this protein binds at least 10 times more tightly than the corresponding spike protein of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS)–CoV to their common host cell receptor. They also tested three antibodies known to bind to the SARS-CoV spike protein but did not detect binding to the 2019-nCoV spike protein. These studies provide valuable information to guide the development of medical counter-measures for 2019-nCoV."  Order of authorship in the original publication: Wrapp, Wang, Corbett....Graham...

COVID-19 vaccine development and a potential nanomaterial path forward.

Nature Nanotechology, 15, 646-655, 2020.

Published 15 July 2020. Order of authorship in original publication: Shin, Shukla, Chung....Steinmetz. Probably the first publication on the type of nanotechnology involved in production of the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines for Covid-19 — vaccines developed within unprecedented short periods of time and manufactured on unprecedented scale.

"Abstract

"The COVID-19 pandemic has infected millions of people with no clear signs of abatement owing to the high prevalence, long incubation period and lack of established treatments or vaccines. Vaccines are the most promising solution to mitigate new viral strains. The genome sequence and protein structure of the 2019-novel coronavirus (nCoV or SARS-CoV-2) were made available in record time, allowing the development of inactivated or attenuated viral vaccines along with subunit vaccines for prophylaxis and treatment. Nanotechnology benefits modern vaccine design since nanomaterials are ideal for antigen delivery, as adjuvants, and as mimics of viral structures. In fact, the first vaccine candidate launched into clinical trials is an mRNA vaccine delivered via lipid nanoparticles. To eradicate pandemics, present and future, a successful vaccine platform must enable rapid discovery, scalable manufacturing and global distribution. Here, we review current approaches to COVID-19 vaccine development and highlight the role of nanotechnology and advanced manufacturing."
