  • Balmis expedition: the children who carried the smallpox vaccine to

    • Authors: Antonio Reguera Teba
      Abstract: Although today very few doubt the efficacy of vaccines, when in 1796 the English doctor Edward Jenne tfler demonstrated the efficacy of his smallpox vaccine, not the entire scientific world welcomed the advance with enthusiasm. Among the most fervent defenders of the revolutionary method was the Spanish doctor Francisco Javier Balmis Berenguer from the outset. His enthusiasm led him to lead what can be considered the first humanitarian mission in history, which between 1803 and 1806 brought Jenner's vaccine to America and Asia

  • Viktor Mikhailovich Zhdanov and the eradication of smallpox

    • Authors: Valery Ivanovich Popov; Lorenzo Capasso, Natalya Yurievna Naraeva
      Abstract: Considering current epidemiological and social phenomena such as COVID-19 pandemic, re-occurrence of monkeypox and vaccine hesitancy, the authors chose to delineate an historical, human, and scientific profile of Dr. Viktor Mikhailovich Zhdanov, as a key figure related not only to smallpox eradication, but also to the building up of worldwide vaccination strategies. The authors present some of Zhdanov main life and scientific experiences and awards in virology, epidemiology, and public health. The authors highlight the need for international commitment to cooperate in the fields of vaccine research and vaccine hesitancy.

  • The preservation of life as a duty and a right

    • Authors: Giuseppe Basile
      Abstract: With considerable insight for the time, 65 years ago Pope Pius XII outlined a proposal of evaluation criteria based on the distinction between ordinary means of care, i.e. those who do not entail unreasonable sacrifices which would be unacceptable for most professionals and patients, and extraordinary care procedures which, although not mandatory, could be used if one had the intellectual, moral, spiritual, scientific and organizational awareness, capabilities and strength to put them in place. The Pope thus addressed the extremely complex set of bioethical issues stemming from the implementation of resuscitation procedures for those who have no hope to recover. The core belief was that every decision based on free consent to treatment should be made within the framework of an underlying and essential linkage between the rights and duties of doctors and those of patients. The identification of the patient as the ultimate decision-maker, when it comes to their health and the therapeutic interventions to be administered, has been the result of a cultural and legal evolution, in keeping with the principle of consent enshrined in art. 32 of the Italian Constitution, according to which “no one can be obliged to undergo any given health treatment except by law. The law cannot therefore exceed the limits imposed by “respect for all human beings”. On March 10th , 2022, the Italian Chamber of Deputies enacted the unified text C. 2-A and abb., which codified provisions on “medically assisted voluntary death” regulating the right to request medical assistance in dying, provided that specific requirements and conditions be met. This short report is meant as an attempt to put into perspective such fundamental values, against the backdrop of the therapeutic alliance between doctors and patients and the ethical, legislative, and regulatory complexities which are bound to arise.

  • Humanity in the caring relationship

    • Authors: Paolo Petralia
      Abstract: The growing complexity of modern technocratic medicine may risk compromising that human dimension of the care relationship that has always constituted its deepest essence. At the same time, in these times characterized by profound uncertainty, there is a growing demand for listening, attention, empathy and, at the same time, for a caring that transcends merely organic aspects to also concern the existential, value and spiritual aspects that represent the core of man's intellectual and emotional life. The commitment of the physician and health worker to take care of these aspects has its roots in the history of medicine, but it takes on and receives a particular ethical connotation in the emergent context of the pandemic. Humanizing care pathways also means being able to accommodate the spiritual dimension of people seeking care, and health professionals should receive adequate training to develop specific skills.

  • The Legacy of Professor Dmitry Zernov: Anatomist, Scientist and Educator

    • Authors: Mikhail Sinelnikov; Vladimir Nikolenko, Negoriya Rizaeva, Anna Shumak, Marine Oganesyan, Timur Prozhirov, Kirill Bulygin, Ivan Chairkin
      Abstract: Dimitry Nikolayevich Zernov (1843-1917) was a renowned Russian anatomist, emeritus professor, head of the medical faculty and president of Moscow Imperial University, and a prominent international collaborator. One of his most important contributions to medicine was as active advocation of international outreach of an otherwise isolated medical scientific society. Seeking to understand advanced technologies being used in Germany, Dr. Zernov completed an internship with the famous German professors Salmon Stricker and Ernst Brucke. To promote Russian science, he published his articles in international journals. Occupying the post of head of the medical faculty, Zernov sought to improve the quality of education based on his personal research into best practices developed by visiting a number of foreign institutions and observing innovative approaches to teaching medical disciplines. He always shared his experiences and knowledge with students and colleagues. Zernov was a pioneer in exploring of structure of the brain and invented the encephalometer, a unique device for anatomical studies, the ancestor of modern stereotaxic apparatus. Among his seminal contributions were ‘Individual Types of Brain Convolutions in Humans’, ‘On the limits of individual and tribal modifications of typical grooves and convolutions of the brain’, ‘On the anatomical features of the brain of intelligent people’ as well as refuting a controversial theory advanced by Italian psychiatrist Lombroso about innate predisposition to commission of crimes. Zernov’s legacy lives on today in the heart of anatomists and surgeons, as well as the Russian anatomical medical community.

  • Kashrut in hospital (1817-1919)

    • Authors: Alessandro Porro; Deborah Sabrina Iannotti, Francesco Auxilia, Silvana Castaldi, Maria Antonella Piga, Bruno Falconi, Antonia Francesca Franchini
      Abstract: How guaranteed is the adherence to kasherut for the provision of meals to Jewish patients in our hospitals' In the city of Milan an experiment was conducted in 2000 at the San Carlo Borromeo Hospital and an agreement between the Lombardy Region and the Milan Jewish Community was drawn up in 2009. Was this problem addressed in the past' If so, what were the characteristics of the service' We can try to delimit the field of our analysis and define a time frame between two major war events: the Napoleonic wars and the First World War. We propose some experiences in the cities of Venice and Trieste. The current situation does not differ much from that of the 19th century. For the 19th century, the solutions adopted intervened in a context in which the respect for rights in generalist institutions was anything, but a given. The cited cases of Trieste and Venice represented models of reference and proposed themselves as advanced solutions for the protection of rights in the hospital and healthcare sector. However, their closure was influenced by economic sustainability, which even today affects health (and hospital) organisation and management. On the other hand, from the point of view of medical museology, the Venetian case reminds us that places can be integrated into routes for the enjoyment of medical historical cultural heritage. In fact, the area of the Israelitic Ward can be identified and could be reconverted to complete a Jewish Medicine Route within the Venetian hospital.

  • The first reported medieval judicial autopsy on Azzolino Degli Onesti:
           poisoning or Budd-Chiari syndrome'

    • Authors: Luigi Papi
      Abstract: The practice of autopsy on human corpses performed to increase anatomical and physio-pathological knowledge has been reported since ancient times, even if it has often been opposed by medical theories and religious beliefs. The first officially autopsy reported in Italy was that described by Salimbene on 1286 during an epidemy that involved hens and human beings. The development of medico-legal practice on cadavers dates back to the Middle Age in Bologna, the city that boasted the most advanced medical and legal faculties of that period. Some of these autopsy reports have come down to our times and provide interesting information on the medico-legal procedures of that period. In particular, it is illustrated the case of Azzolino degli Onesti: his death was suspected for poisoning but the interpretation of the autopsy report based on current medical knowledge may suggest different conclusions.

      Abstract: By the mid-20th century, pellagra had virtually been eradicated from the USA and Europe. Eradication of the disease on the African continent lags behind. Outbreaks are maintained by escalating food insecurity, violent unrest and possibly by the burden of communicable diseases.

  • Regarding the study of the anatomical collections of the criminal
           anthropology schools

    • Authors: Silvia Iorio
      Abstract: I find it very important to take a cue from the investigative method conducted by the authors Verderame and Borrelli and presented in the article Malformed skulls in criminal anthropology: a preliminary study on the Cranioteca of the Anthropology Museum of Naples published in the Journal of Medicina Historica. As a scholar of the History of Medicine who deals with criminal anthropology, I find the contribution of paleopathologists to be important in the study of the osteological collections of museums linked to the history of psychiatry in the 19th century. Mine also wants to be an invitation to increase the dialogue between the different skills also to enhance this type of anthropological heritage and awaken an interest in these issues also among the whole community.

  • Anthropological analyses of the Modern era-mummified human remains

    • Authors: Omar Larentis; Caterina Pangrazzi, Chiara Tesi, Roberta Fusco
      Abstract: Northeastern Italy preserves, although rarely, some naturally mummified remains from medieval and modern times. This study considers the remains from the province of Varese, with particular attention to those found in 2001 in a hypogeal burial chamber in the Santa Maria del Monte sanctuary in Varese, Lombardy. The materials, analyzed with classical methods of physical anthropology, consist of one head, one arm with the forearm, one forearm with the hand, a hand, a foot, and a lower limb with the foot. The analyses have allowed us to acquire new data regarding the use of funerary spaces during the medieval and modern ages, regarding the treatment of the body of the deceased and their alleged health status. Finally, the work helped in planning the subsequent analyses, to acquire a holistic view of all the variables of the bioarchaeological context.

  • Bone grafting in the pre-antiseptic era (historical review)

    • Authors: Alexander Pankratov; Astemir Shajhaliev
      Abstract: In this paper, a systematic review of the state of bone plastic surgery was carried out before the antiseptic approach was widely introduced into world clinical practice. The experience of the first bone transplantation operations is analyzed in their relationship with the development of ideas about the regenerative regeneration of bone tissue. It is shown that, contrary to generally accepted ideas, it was at that time that the theoretical and practical foundation was laid, without which it would have been impossible to develop bone grafting in the following decades, discoveries were made, the significance of which could be understood only a century later. The first part of the article traces the background of the issue, starting with the earliest archaeological finds dating back to the II millennium BC, until the early 1860s, when the first theories began to be created, systematizing the observations accumulated by that time, and predetermined the formation of the future direction of medical science.

  • Understanding the impact of Artificial Intelligence on physician-patient
           relationship: a revisitation of conventional relationship models in the
           light of new technological frontiers

    • Authors: Francesca Greco; Mario Picozzi
      Abstract: The physician-patient relationship has undergone a transition throughout the ages. The introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in recent years, however, is redefining this relationship. The four main relationship models described by Emanuel in 1992 are known as paternalistic, informative, interpretive, and deliberative. The aim of this study is to understand how conventional models of doctor-patient relationships are changing when considering the impact AI has on medical practice. The introduction of AI could strengthen the physician's role resulting in the so-called digital paternalism or even undermining the physician's role. Also, doctors and patients could experience decision paralysis when AIs’ recommendations are difficult to understand or explain to patients and it may affect the organizational aspects of healthcare contexts. It becomes necessary to define the source of the information presented to the patient. On another hand, AI could increase the patient's trust in the doctor by knowing that various therapeutic choices are being discussed and fully explained. It’s complicated to understand whether the trust relationship established between doctor and patient remains bi-univocal, by incorporating AI in the clinician’s figure, or whether AI must be introduced as a separate entity implying an asymmetry in this relationship. Shared decision-making, guidelines and training, together with an effort in communication are fundamental to best incorporate AI into clinical practice. It is relevant to educate doctors on the new models of relationships that can be created, in addition to studying patient populations within the context of these models’ framework.

  • Ethical and political issues in healthcare choices in the pandemic era:
           the right to visit hospitalized

    • Authors: Linda Alfano; Romina Ciaccia, Rosagemma Ciliberti
      Abstract: Background The loneliness of hospitalized in healthcare facilities caused by the suspension of relations with their family members has been a characterizing aspect of the Covid 19 pandemic which still calls for delicate ethical reflections. Based on the implications that the interdictions and/or severe limitations on visits have had on the health of patients and their families, the paper aims to propose possible intervention strategies to reorganize places of care so that individual and collective good can be reconciled without ever compromising the principle of assistance centered on the person and his emotional references. Materials and Methods: An analysis of the literature of interest has been conducted also through electronic databases including PubMed, Scopus and Web of Science, integrated with data obtained from Web search engines. Results: To restrain the transmission of the COVID-19 infection in the hospital environment, the administrators of healthcare facilities have adopted highly restrictive measures which, by excluding the family circle from assisting the relative, have negatively affected the fragility and vulnerability of the same people who they wanted to protect and accompany them in the care pathways, neglecting possible alternative strategies that could have guaranteed both care and respect for the person and their emotions. Conclusions: The organizational models of hospital facilities should become flexible enough to give due prominence, even in emergency situations, to the transformative capabilities of staff in promoting the humanization and personalization of care.
