Abstract:

"[D]elves into humanity's war with lethal microorganisms and viruses. Astoundingly detailed images by medical photographer Lennart Nilsson illuminate how microbes attack the body and how our immune systems defend it. Reenactments of remarkable medical discoveries-- penicillin, blood groups, methods of malaria control, and the polio vaccine -- are portrayed, and cutting-edge stem cell research is discussed. The rapid speed with which the SARS virus spread around the globe is also investigated. Leading immunologist Robert Gallo urges awareness to prevent these mounting threats. AIDS and SARS will not be the last new diseases to endanger humans"--Container.
