    Sir Alexander Fleming —studying a test tube culture with a hand lens. Penicillin was badly needed, but the daily bombing raids over Britain made its industries and laboratories vulnerable to German bombs. Sir Alexander Fleming was a Scottish biologist, physician, microbiologist, and pharmacologist. Other bacteria would not even go near it.

    Florey and Dr. The challenge of mass-producing the drug had been daunting. In addition, several other fungal metabolites are used as antibiotics Table Norman G.

    Charles Thorn, the U. It is active against beta-lactamase-producing organisms such as Staphylococcus aureus, which would otherwise be resistant to most penicillins. It seemed inactive but this was because he had failed to isolate the penicillin correctly. It is used to treat infections caused by susceptible non-resistant Gram-positive bacteria.

But Chain and Florey did not have enough pure penicillin to eradicate the infection, and Alexander ultimately died. Sheehan at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who had earlier been involved at Merck and Company in New Jersey with the development of the antibiotic streptomycin and vitamin B6, took up the challenge of producing a chemical synthesis of penicillin.
