|Contribution||Reported discovery of Trichinella spiralis in human flesh.|
|Notes||He and Owen, using the same material, each clearly described a systemic micro-organism. They did not allege pathogenicity (indeed Paget remarked its absence in this case). Until that time, micro-organisms had been seen on, rather than in, the human body. See Campbell, W. C., Bull. Hist. Med. 53: 520-552, 1979. See Campbell, W. C., Chapter 1 in: Trichinella and Trichinosis. Plenum, 1983.|
