Legends of Science
Rudolf Ludwig Carl Virchow Satish Chandra Agarwal

Satish Chandra Agarwal received his MD from the university of Lucknow (1953) and PhD from the university of London, Uk (1959). His areas of specializations were medical microbiology, immunology, virology. His research findings showed that Diptheria toxin produces circulation failure by making arterioles refractory to adrenaline and noradrenaline and Diptheritic paralysis is due to diminished synthesis of acetylcholine in neurons. His findings also showed that protein RNA fraction from Nocardia asteroids was an effective immunizing agent in experimental myecetoma. Dr. Agarwal was a member of WHO expert group on Bacterial and Enteric Diseases (1972-79). He was a fellow of National Academy of Medical Sciences, Royal College of Pathologists, London. He was Founder President, Indian Association of Medical Microbiologists.

Andreas Vesalius Subodh Mitra

Subodh Mitra received his MD from University of Berlin (1924) and FRCS from University of Edinburgh, UK (1925). His areas of specialization were in obstetrics and gynaecology, cancer surgery and radiology. Mitra designed a new technique of operation for the cancer of the cervix. He made special contributions to cancer surgery of the uterus, toximia and anaemia of pregnancy and fundamental research on cancer. He was Vice-Chancellor, University of Kolkatta. He was an honorary member, Society of Gynaecology and Obstetrics of Italy. He was President, International Congress of Obstetrics (1950), German Congress of Obstetrics (1952), Interantional Cancer Congress (1954).

Do You Know?

In 1968 researchers demonstrated that when a transforming virus (a virus capable of causing cancer) infects a normal cell, it inserts one of its genes into the host cell’s genome.

Heat treatment may make chemotherapy more effective

05 January 2021, ScienceDaily

The study found that 'loading' a chemotherapy drug on to tiny magnetic particles that can heat up the cancer cells at the same time as delivering the drug to them was up to 34% more effective at destroying the cancer cells than the chemotherapy drug without added heat...

Gut microbe may promote breast cancers

06 January 2021, EurekAlert

In a series of laboratory experiments, researchers discovered that when enterotoxigenic Bacteroides fragilis (ETBF) was introduced to the guts or breast ducts of mice, it always induced growth and metastatic progression of tumor cells...

Statins may shield hearts from damage caused by breast cancer chemotherapy

07 January 2021, Technology Networks

Anthracyclines and trastuzumab are effective therapies for many women with breast cancer. However, increased risk of cardiotoxicity has limited their use, and damage can be severe enough to lead to heart failure...
