AlEXANDER FLEMING MEMORIAL AWARD


Alexander Fleming was a great Scottish biologist and pharmacologist who made way for antibiotic medicines with his discovery of penicillin from the mould “Penicillium notatum”. Fleming’s discoveries brought new hope to mankind in battling certain diseases and treating bacterial infections. Fleming’s various works are recorded in his articles on bacteriology, immunology, and chemotherapy. He won Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945 for his outstanding and breakthrough discovery. Such is the impact of the great man that his name had even featured in the list of 100 Most Important People of the 20th Century as recently as in 1999. Present day penicillin upgrades carried put by the medicine world stand on one man’s quest and that is none other than Fleming. By discovering synthetic penicillin Fleming paved the way for preventing and fighting serious illnesses like syphilis, gangrene and tuberculosis which were never imagined of being treated before Fleming’s discoveries.
Antiseptics do more harm than good: While serving the field hospitals during the World War I in 1914 he reached the conclusion that antiseptics such as carbolic acid, boric acid and hydrogen peroxide (used to treat wounds) do more harm than cure. He found that they only cured surface wounds and failed to heal deeper. Along with Almroth Wright, he suggested an alternative of saline water for treatment.
November 1921 saw the discovery of the antiseptic enzyme lysozyme. It happened when Fleming dropped a drop of mucus from his nose on a culture of bacteria. In the quest of finding its effect on the bacterial growth, he mixed it and studied for a few days, thus leading to this significant discovery for mankind.
Having seen many soldiers succumbing to death due to Sepsis during the World War, Fleming got deeply involved in his search for antibacterial agents after having realized that antiseptics harmed the immunity system in the longer run.Since 1927 Fleming had engrossed himself in studying about staphylococci. It was an accidental finding on September 3, 1928, wherein one on his fungus contaminated staphylococci culture destroyed all the surrounding staphylococci culture while other staphylococci colonies somewhat away were normal
Alexander Fleming, Florey and Chain collectively received the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1945.
He was also awarded the Hunterian Professorship by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and has a number of other honorary degrees from various universities in America and Europe.
