LM of blood smear showing iron-deficiency anaemia

Iron-deficiency anaemia. Light micrograph of a blood smear in a patient suffering from iron- deficiency anaemia. This is the most common form of anaemia worldwide. It is caused by a deficiency of iron, an essential component of the blood pigment haemoglobin. Here, a field of red blood cells (spherical structures) is seen. Due to this form of anaemia these cells stain poorly (they are hypochromic). Many of the cells are irregularly shaped and smaller than normal. This reduces their oxygen-carrying capacity. Symptoms include tired- ness, dizziness, and pale skin. A white blood cell (at centre, purple) serves to fight infection. Giemsa stain. Magnification: x630 at 35mm size

Francois Magendie, French physiologist

Francois Magendie (1783-1855), French physiologist. Magendie graduated in medicine at Paris in 1808. In 1809, he described his experiments on plant-derived poisons. He used animals to determine the physiological effect of the toxin, then tried the compounds on himself. As a result, many medicinal compounds were introduced which had been derived from plant toxins, notably alkaloids, including strychnine, morphine, codeine and quinine. His wide-ranging research included the importance of proteins, emetic action, the absorption of drugs and white blood cells. He was an enthusiastic vivisectionist who avoided theory, and championed experimental physiology in France
