Alderman, N (2016) Paul Ehrlich's 'magic bullet' and the cure for syphilis.

Item Type: Audio
Creators: Alderman, N
Abstract: Naomi Alderman tells the story of Paul Ehrlich's 'magic bullet' cure for syphilis. If you take a drug today to cure an illness, you have this man to thank for inventing the concept of targeted treatments that aim to hit the disease and not the patient. This revolutionary idea opened the door to modern pharmaceutical therapies and initiated debates about the role of medical research that echo through the 20th Century.
