Portrait by Sir Godfrey Kneller, Variolation or inoculation was the method first used to immunize an individual against smallpox (Variola) with material taken from a patient or a recently variolated individual, in the hope that a mild, but protective, infection would procedure was most commonly carried out by inserting/rubbing powdered smallpox scabs or fluid from pustules into superficial scratches made in the skin.

Origin of Smallpox. The origin of smallpox is unknown. Smallpox is thought to date back to the Egyptian Empire around the 3 rd century BCE (Before Common Era), based on a smallpox-like rash found on three mummies. The earliest written description of a disease that clearly resembles smallpox appeared in China in the 4 th century CE (Common Era).

Early written descriptions also. 1. Introduction. Smallpox is widely considered one of the most lethal of all human pathogens, and was also the first disease to be eradicated. Vaccination was developed by Edward Jenner at the very end of the eighteenth century (Jenner, ), and reduced smallpox to a relatively minor cause of death in Europe by the mid-nineteenth r, smallpox still accounted for.

Books shelved as smallpox: The Demon in the Freezer by Richard Preston, Pox Americana: The Great Smallpox Epidemic of by Elizabeth A. Fenn, The S. Simply, and with great humanity, The Eradication of Smallpox tells the story of smallpox - it's origins, the horror of the disease, and the millions of people killed or disfigured by it.

During the 18th and 19th centuries, it is estimated that one out of every ten people died from the disease; some say one out of every seven. Smallpox attacked very young children in particular.

InEdward Jenner developed an effective vaccine that used cowpox to provoke smallpox immunity. It worked. It worked. Eventually, smallpox. Even after a vaccine, smallpox took two centuries to eradicate Medical breakthroughs depend on overcoming prejudice as much as on scientific research, as two new books on the smallpox.

Inoculation against smallpox is believed to have been practiced in China as far back as BC, and is reported to have been common in India, Africa, and Turkey prior to its introduction into western societies in the 18 th century [1].

In China the practice was to blow dried and ground Variola scabs into the nostrils of the patient. Mathematically-minded doctors calculated the risks of dying from inoculation—roughly 1 in in the s – and compared it to the much greater risk of dying from smallpox, about 1 in 7.

It is curious, however, and may lead to other improvements. 6 In experienced hands, the death rate after inoculation was less than one inand about 20% of patients had only a single pock at the inoculation site. The measles, mumps and rubella vaccines afford lifelong protection and have changed little since they were first licensed.

2 Smallpox has been vaccine-eradicated [3] [4][5] and polio is just about. To understand what really happened, Boylston, whose research interest is the history of smallpox inoculation, explored letters, medical notes and research papers, going back to about The method of practice in the small-pox, with observations on the way of inoculation.
