Remembering Malignant Hyperthermia Pioneer: Michael Denborough, MD

michaeldenborough-3.jpg

“MHAUS mourns the death of one of the pioneers in the study of Malignant Hyperthermia, Dr. Michael Denborough (July, 11, 1929 to February 8, 2014) of Australia, says MHAUS President Henry Rosenberg, M.D. Dr. Denborough and colleagues were the first to describe the disorder that was later named Malignant Hyperthermia. He did seminal work in describing the clinical and genetic basis for human MH. He also worked with pigs who developed “porcine stress syndrome” and showed how those animals could be a model for human MH. Later in his life he worked hard as an advocate for anti-nuclear proliferation. He was a great scientist, and a wonderful human being.”
