FACTS & FIGURES

Emil von Behring was born on March 15, 1854 in Hansdorf, West Prussia. He was a German bacteriologist, one of the founders of immunology. In 1901 he received the first Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work on serum therapy, particularly for its use in the treatment of diphtheria. The first successful therapeutic serum treatment of a child suffering from diphtheria occurred in 1891. Until then more than 50,000 children in Germany died yearly of diphtheria. 

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary from the discovery of the treatment, the Reichspost issued a set of two postage stamps to honor the great German physiologist.
