Synopsis: Penicillin has affected the lives of everyone, and has exerted a powerful hold on the popular imagination since its first use in 1941. The story of its development from a chance observation in 1928 by Alexander Fleming to a life-saving drug is compelling and exciting. It revolutionized healthcare and turned the modest, self-effacing Fleming into a world hero. This book tells the story of the man and his discovery set against a background of the transformation of medical research from nineteenth-century individualism through to teamwork and modern-day international big business (pharmaceutical companies like Fisors, Distillers, or Beecham (Smith Kline)). Now, sixty years after the antibiotic revolution, when there are fears that the days of antibiotics are numbered it has never been more timely to look at the beginnings.

About the Author: Kevin Brown has been Trust Archivist and Alexander Fleming Laboratory Museum Curator at St Mary's NHS Trust, Paddington since 1989. Educated at Hertford College, Oxford and at University College, London, he is chairman of the London Museums of Health and Medicine.
