Egypte moderne et histoire de la microbiologie: de l'expédition de Bonaparte à nos jours (2006)


The history of microbiology and parasitology in Egypt started with Bonaparte's campaign and the contemporary clicinal reports from the physicians of the "armee d'Orient". Later, basic discoveries in these fields have been the facts of German scientists. At the beginning of WWI, German phsycians were evicted from Cairo and British parasitologists took over. Virology studies on polio in Egypt started in 1942 but the British virologists were quickly supplanted by the Americans. Many basic contributions to the epidemology of the viral diseases in the Nile valley have been established in the past forty years, concerning mosquito arborviruses as well as hepatitis C.
