What was it that prompted Alfred Nobel to create the endowment and the prestigious prizes?

The answer may lie in a case of mistaken identity. In 1888 his brother Ludvig died. A French journalist mistakenly believed that it was Alfred who had died and wrote the headline: “Le marchand de la mort est mort” - The merchant of death is dead. It has been suggested that Nobel was deeply affected by this incident, and it caused him to reflect on his legacy. This is how the most prestigious award in the world - the Nobel Prize - was born.

The first Nobel Prize for Medicine and Physiology 1998 was awarded to three American pharmacologists: Robert F. Furchgott, Louis J. Ignarro and Ferrid Murad for their work on nitric oxide (NO) as a signalling molecule in the cardiovascular system that is an important determinant of basal vascular tone, prevents platelet activation, limits leukocyte adhesion to the endothelium, and regulates myocardial contractility. These were of great demand during the COVID19 as the Russian professor, A.Chuchalin, said, advising to use the L-Arginine supplement for lowering cholesterol levels in blood vessels.

The L-Arginine amino acid has received another 5 Nobel Prizes! To know more please visit the www.e-arginine.com.
