Overview

How have diseases that were killers in 1900, such as polio, been almost wiped out today?

What has led to hundreds of new drugs being developed?

Modem Medicine looks at the extraordinary changes in medicine since the start of the 20th century. It shows how today's amazing surgical techniques, such as heart transplants, would have been unthinkable for a doctor a hundred years ago.

The Medicine Through the Ages series tracks changes to human understanding of health and disease through history. It uses "common confusions" panels to tackle myths and misunderstandings, biography panels to describe innovators, and word banks to explain challenging and unfamiliar terms.
