Ehrlich at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

German medical scientist. After early work on distribution of foreign substances in the body and on cell nutrition, he found uses for staining agents in diagnosis (incl. that of tuberculosis) and treatment. He also researched typhoid, fever medications, and eye diseases. In one paper, he showed that different tissues' oxygen consumption reflected the intensity of their cell processes. Ehrlich developed a method of stimulating production of antitoxins by injecting increasing amounts of toxin into animals; his work was crucial to the creation of a diphtheria antitoxin. He and É . Metchnikoff received a 1908 Nobel Prize. With Sahachiro Hata (1837-1938), he developed Salvarsan, the first effective syphilis treatment, in 1910.

U.S. biologist. Born in Philadelphia, he studied at the Univ. of Kansas and taught at Stanford Univ. from 1959. Though much of his research was done in entomology, his overriding concern became unchecked population growth. His most influential work was The Population Bomb (1968). In 1990 he shared with E. O. Wilson Sweden's prestigious Crafoord Prize.
