Research Facts
Smallpox was a highly infectious disease with an extremely high mortality rate; it was caused by the variola virus and spread through the air from person to person; symptoms included severe abdominal pain, fever, and rash; the smallpox vaccine was developed in 1796 by Edward Jenner and is considered the first vaccine ever developed; smallpox is considered eradicated and no cases have been reported since 1977.
Connaught Laboratories was established in 1914 at the University of Toronto as the Antitoxin Laboratory in the Department of Hygiene; it was established in part due to increased awareness and agency in treatment and prevention of infectious diseases within the public health context of Canadian society; Dr. John Gerald FitzGerald was the driving force behind the establishment of the laboratory which initially focused on producing diphtheria antitoxin; Connaught Laboratories maintained a non-commercial mandate for much of the twentieth century and expanded significantly following the discovery of insulin and through combating the spread of infectious diseases during and after the World Wars; Connaught Laboratories was an industry leader in the production of a variety of vaccines including typhus, smallpox, and polio, as well as other medical products including penicillin and insulin; eventually became privately owned in 1986 under the Mulroney government.
