About this Item

Series: Proceedings Royal Society, London. Series B, Biological Sciences, vol. 147, no 927, 1957. 8vo. pp. 258-267. Original printed wrappers. FINE. This is the original paper which outlined the discovery, long searched for, of what was called 'interferon.' ". . .in 1937. . . George W. M. Findlay and F. O. MacCallum, who observed that monkeys infected with Rift Valley Fever virus resisted the fatal, antigenetically distinct, yellow fever virus. Reports of interference among other viruses appeared, and in 1943 Werner and Gertrude Henle discovered that ultraviolet- or heat-killed viruses are still able to interfere with secondary inoculations of live viruses. The scientific literature was soon filled with speculations on mechanisms for this transient form of viral immunity that apparently involved neither antibody not phagocyte. The discovery and premier analysis of the agent came in 1957 with Alick Isaacs and Jean Lindenmann." Also in this issue, Virus interference II: Some properties of interferon, pp. 268-273.
