Happy Birthday!

Paul Ehrlich

was born 3/14/1854 in Prussia
(d.8/20/1915)

Known for his pioneering work in hematology, immunology and chemotherapy and for his discovery of the first effective treatment for syphilis. (Salvarsan, was extraordinarily effective and harmless despite a large arsenic content. The first tests, undertaken in the spring of 1910, proved to be surprisingly successful in the treatment of a whole spectrum of diseases; in the case of yaws, a tropical disease akin to syphilis, a single injection was sufficient. He'd found, in his words, a "magic bullet."
         And had she but told me, oh when she dishonored me
        Had she but told me of it in time
        I might have been cured by those pills of white mercury
        Now I am a young man cut down in my prime

            "Pills of White Mercury" see DigTrad filename[ LAREDST9, (ie "Unfortunate Rake")

AND:    Now times weren't bad when all we had
        Was Syph, or Gonaree
        If you got caught, you'd be cured with a shot
        At your local clinic for free.
        But those times my friend are at an end,
        There is Herpes now, you see,
        So there ain't no shot for what you've got
        And you're stuck with your VD.
