The evolution of the dynamic understanding of the © Cengage Learning 2013 Progress in Surgery, Clinical Medicine, and Public Health up until Pasteur’s Formulation of the Germ Theory in 1878 disease process is described in Table 1–4. During this stage, an understanding of the etiology of a disease through experimental laboratory research was used to verify cause-effect relationships. This breakthrough in treating disease on a scientific basis started with Pasteur’s discovery of the germ theory. From Pasteur’s work, laboratory scientists were able to investigate disease processes by identifying a specific microorganism.

The understanding of the dynamics of disease led to the science of clinical medicine. Physicians were then able to diagnose disease through laboratory microscope techniques, thus replacing vitalism and metaphysics as explanations for the onset of communicable disease. Probably the most important work on medical research in the nineteenth century was Claude Bernard’s Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine published in 1895. Pasteur acknowledged Bernard as an important influence in his own work.

From 1850 to 1910, the process of identifying the germ responsible for a disease and the discovery of a chemical to eliminate the germ was the basis for the rapid conquest of many communicable diseases. The elimination of many communicable diseases would not have occurred without the microscope and the laboratory techniques of microbiology and biochemistry. The technology for protecting the individual from infectious diseases was a direct result of the understanding of human physiology and cellular theory.
