Résumé

L’auteur relate l’histoire de la découverte laborieuse du cycle exoérythrocytaire asexué des plasmodiums inféodés à l’homme en rappelant combien la déférence vis-à-vis de l’establishment scientifique du moment et une certaine timidité dans la contestation et la critique peuvent être préjudiciables aux avancées de la connaissance.

Characterisation of the exoerythrocytic stage of the asexual cycle of the human plasmodia: a painstaking process

Abstract

The difficulties encountered in the discovery of the exoerythrocytic stage of the asexual cycle of the human plasmodia are described. These illustrate how deference towards scientific orthodoxy and a degree of reluctance to question and to criticise can delay advances in knowledge.
