Public Health History Corner Abraham Flexner:the iconoclast
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.2427/5797
Abstract: Abraham Flexner, in 1910, led an attack on the inadequacy of the medical schools in the United States. In opposition to the traditional clinical type training he proposed a new laboratory centred model, with a strong emphasis on basic sciences. These university lab experiments were one of the main driving forces in the development of medical sciences in the USA. The work of a pedagogue caused a real medical revolution, the outcomes of which were important but not all positive.
A historical laboratory in Rome
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.2427/5754
Abstract: Visitors who climb the austere stairs of the Giuseppe Sanarelli Institute, headquarters of the Public Health Sciences Department, in the University La Sapienza of Rome, may experience a strange feeling: the steps follow one another identically, yet each seems taller and more difficult than the last. It is as if, with every step, time reveals its stories, experiences; ever larger and harder to sustain. Following the corridor it is impossible not to pause and reflect upon the displays of memories and details belonging to the past. There is a constant sensation, almost tangible: it is as if each of the objects, so dense with memories, want to take you on a fantastic voyage to another time and place. Objects made of wood, copper and other materials that come from the past, filled with the scent of a world that no longer exists.
Acting as a unit". A praiseworthy story from Cleveland
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.2427/5782
Abstract: This is a story that comes from Cleveland. It’s a story of zealous and ingenious men, of ideas and of cooperation. A story that is the result of various personal and diverse professional experiences, from different historical moments, all converged towards a single cause: excellence in health care. It is also a story about a private institution but nevertheless it offers many public health teachings: it’s the story of Albert Kanoti and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. The Cleveland Clinic was founded on February 5 1921 as an independent, not-for-profit academic medical center engaged in patient care, research, and education. In 1924 it added a 184-bed hospital to its outpatient facilities. It has also experienced tragic moments, when on May 15, 1929, nitrate-based x-ray films ignited in the original building, releasing poisonous fumes; 123 people died, including Dr. Phillips, one of the founders. Despite losses from the disaster and the stock market crash, the institution stayed afloat on the good will of prominent members of the community, and the large surgical practice of Dr. Crile, another of its founders. It expanded greatly after World War II, focusing on specialized medicine. The Cleveland Clinic Research Division investigated kidney disease, blood circulation, and artificial organs, including the artificial kidney. ClevelandClinic physicians, researchers and nurses pioneered enterostomal therapy, dialysis, and kidney transplant techniques, and were first to identify carpal tunnel syndrome and isolate serotonin, and all before 1960.
Public Health History Corner Multidisciplinary approach to Public Health: Albert Jonsen’s example
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.2427/5701
Abstract: Public Health is not a discipline with clearly defined boundaries. This feature has taken many contributions from different cultural contexts. In its most recent development, Public Health has also emphasized the enhancement of the human element for the proper functioning of health facilities and the provision of quality care. The vision of public health only through its processes, resources, rules and protocols and any other part of the “structural” component, is certainly simplistic and of the past. This vision of the efficiency of health organization has positive aspects but certainly cannot disregard the fact that things do not have just procedures, but also involve who perform them and how these are managed. So ‘new’ public health contained a new focus on human rights and sought to address social and environmental change. At its root was the common thought that the general context for health had been marginalized only by medically generated concerns.
Public Health History Corner The far-sighted: Alessandro Seppilli
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2011, DOI: 10.2427/5663
Abstract: Alessandro Seppilli is one of the main protagonists for the planning and establishment of the Italian National Health Service [1]. As Chairman of the Commission for the study of health reform in the Italian Consiglio Superiore di Sanità (Higher Council of Health). As a lecturer and researcher he promoted and led several important lines of research, always ahead of its time and with great foresight. His curiosity led him to be involved in a variety of Public Health disciplines: water and sanitation, safe milk distribution, as well as demonstrating, through research, the influence of atmospheric electrical changes on biological phenomena in respect to the vital effects of electric fields changes. He also conducted pioneering research into the study of anticaries fluoride and the carcinogenic effects of active and passive cigarette smoke. Last but not least he studied the use of low temperatures for food storage, investigated the distribution of drinking water by alternative systems and undertook studies on environmental carcinogenesis.
Applied (and appealing…) Epidemiology
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.2427/5702
Abstract: Giuseppe La Torre has, in his manual “Applied Epidemiology and Biostatistics”, drawn upon his experience (long and intense despite his young age) as applied epidemiology expert in the Catholic University of Sacred Heart. For some years, in fact, he has offered valuable advice to many researchers who had failed to publish in international journals because of an inappropriate use of epidemiological methods and biostatistics, and has helped many of them present the results of their research. After numerous rejected papers, researchers would turn to his expertise and knowhow of the most modern epidemiological tools. The results were flattering: the papers which Professor La Torre and his staff had dealt with the epidemiological issues, as if by magic, were accepted for publication. It is therefore justified and understandable that the author has decided to propose, to a wider public, his epidemiological expertise about applied epidemiology. But there is no magic. The author simply focuses on the need to apply epidemiological methods to areas of public health practice for determining disease etiology and the “real-life” applications to public health and health services research.
Public Health History Corner Edmund Pellegrino: a modern day prophet for medical humanities in the US
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.2427/5784
Abstract: Abraham Flexner lit the fire that freed American doctors from obsolete aspects of their training. Edmund Pellegrino was the prudent fireman who acknowledged the risk of too broad a fire and put in place safe guards to protect those aspects that needed to be saved. The prodigious leap forward in medicine due to the “laboratory centred” training introduced by Flexner’s proposals for medical training began to have negative effects in daily medical practice, particularly with regards to the increasing technological input in medicine and the perception that there was a lack of sensitivity to the humanistic aspects of health. It took a strong and genial personality, no less than Abraham Flexner, to correct the course of medical training in the USA and to restore the balance between these two dimensions.
Lack or Inhibition of Dopaminergic Stimulation Induces a Development Increase of Striatal Tyrosine Hydroxylase-Positive Interneurons
Carla Letizia Busceti, Domenico Bucci, Gemma Molinaro, Paola Di Pietro, Luca Zangrandi, Roberto Gradini, Rosario Moratalla, Giuseppe Battaglia, Valeria Bruno, Ferdinando Nicoletti, Francesco Fornai
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0044025
Abstract: We examined the role of endogenous dopamine (DA) in regulating the number of intrinsic tyrosine hydroxylase-positive (TH+) striatal neurons using mice at postnatal day (PND) 4 to 8, a period that corresponds to the developmental peak in the number of these neurons. We adopted the strategy of depleting endogenous DA by a 2-day treatment with α-methyl-p-tyrosine (αMpT, 150 mg/kg, i.p.). This treatment markedly increased the number of striatal TH+ neurons, assessed by stereological counting, and the increase was highly correlated to the extent of DA loss. Interestingly, TH+ neurons were found closer to the clusters of DA fibers after DA depletion, indicating that the concentration gradient of extracellular DA critically regulates the distribution of striatal TH+ neurons. A single i.p. injection of the D1 receptor antagonist, SCH23390 (0.1 mg/kg), the D2/D3 receptor antagonist, raclopride (0.1 mg/kg), or the D4 receptor antagonist, L-745,870 (5 mg/kg) in mice at PND4 also increased the number of TH+ neurons after 4 days. Treatment with the D1-like receptor agonist SKF38393 (10 mg/kg) or with the D2-like receptor agonist, quinpirole (1 mg/kg) did not change the number of TH+ neurons. At least the effects of SCH23390 were prevented by a combined treatment with SKF38393. Immunohistochemical analysis indicated that striatal TH+ neurons expressed D2 and D4 receptors, but not D1 receptors. Moreover, treatment with the α4β2 receptor antagonist dihydro-β-erythroidine (DHβE) (3.2 mg/kg) also increased the number of TH+ neurons. The evidence that DHβE mimicked the action of SCH23390 in increasing the number of TH+ neurons supports the hypothesis that activation of D1 receptors controls the number of striatal TH+ neurons by enhancing the release of acetylcholine. These data demonstrate for the first time that endogenous DA negatively regulates the number of striatal TH+ neurons by direct and indirect mechanisms mediated by multiple DA receptor subtypes.
