Louis Pasteur develops a method of attenuating a virulent pathogen the agent of chicken cholera, so it would immunize and not cause disease. This is the conceptual breakthrough for establishing protection against disease by the inoculation of a weakened strain of the causative agent. Pasteur uses the word ”attenuated” to mean weakened. As Pasteur acknowledged, the concept came from Edward Jenner’s earlier success at smallpox vaccination.
