"From the beginning of recorded time until the last fifty years, many diseases whose cause proved to be viral continuously produced suffering in the form of acuted and chronic diseases and death. By the onset of the late 1950's and into the early 1960's, a biomedical and economic revolution occurred during which many of these epidemics came under control through the administration of viral vaccines. Microbe Hunters - Then and Now provides an overview of discoveries in animal and plant viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other issues, including prion diseases and mucosal immunity."
