Abstract:

Killer bugs like the plague, cholera, and typhoid were all brought under control by adventuring self-experimenters. This program looks at medical trailblazers who took the ultimate risk and injected or ingested some of the most terrifying diseases known to humankind. Describing Louis Pasteur's flirtation with mortality-during which he asked his assistants to inject him with the rabies virus-the program also explores the gambles taken by two early-20th-century American doctors who injected themselves and their families with polio in a bitter race for a vaccine. Modern researchers who have infected themselves with hookworm in a novel bid to control allergies are also featured.
