Jenner used his knowledge of observation to develop the first smallpox vaccine through rudimentary testing of cowpox lesions on the hands of milkmaids. Realizing that milkmaids afflicted with cowpox had a natural immunity to smallpox, Jenner experimented with the transfer of cowpox pus to a healthy child through inoculation. Subsequent smallpox variolation to these test subject resulted in an immunity to smallpox. Thus, the first successful clinical vaccine trial alternative to variolation was published.
It occurs when infection develops inside the muscles or organs, more than likely from a trauma. Clostridium perfringens releases dangerous toxins into the body along with gas which can be trapped inside the tissue of muscles or organs. As the infection prolongs, the skin may become a pale-grayish color, and if you press the skin or put pressure on a tissue it may make a crackling noise because of the gas inside the tissue.(6) If you are diagnosed with gas gangrene you would need immediate medical treatment or death could occur in 48 hours. In Gas gangrene, the bacteria Clostridia release alpha, beta and other toxins, which induce blood clotting in the infection and leads to myonecrosis.

Mosquitoes that spread Zika are active daytime biters, but they can also bite at night. Therefore, the mosquito net, a kind of cover sheet over the bed to keep mosquitos away at night, is not an efficient blocking method. Ironically, mosquitoes themselves become infected when they feed on a person already infected with the virus. Infected mosquitoes can then further spread the virus to people through bites. Scientists have discovered other ways of transmission for Zika virus such as sexual intercourse, including oral activities, from a person who has Zika virus to his partner even if the infected person does not show symptoms at the time.
During this process, the blood is tested for higher levels of immunoreactive trypsinogen or IRT. The sweat test is another test used to test the amount of salt in the sweat and see if it is higher than normal. A blood test can also check the DNA to see if the gene that can cause Cystic Fibrosis is defected. These tests are usually done on infants and they must be tested at Cystic Fibrosis specialized clinic. (Mayo Clinic Staff)

The influenza pandemic was devastating among those infected and was responsible for the death of 675,000 Americans and 50 million people all over the world in 1918. As a result of this devastation, vaccines were formulated to prevent future outbreak of deadly and viral diseases, some becoming required by law. However, today many people have decided to boycott any form of vaccination whether it be for their children, or even their pets, due to the modern theory that they may weaken new immune systems. History has proven over time that vaccinations are absolutely effective in preventing dangerous strains of illnesses while saving countless lives since their creation and should be given to all children and at-risk adults.
