De l'influence des découvertes de M. Pasteur sur les progrès de la chirurgie.

Comptes rendus de l'Académie des Sciences, 86, 634-640, 1878.

Sedillot, a surgeon, first used the word "microbe" on p. 634, third paragraph, of this paper. He coined the term after consulting with lexicographer Émile Littré, to ascertain etymological appropriateness. Shortly thereafter Pasteur used the term in a paper with Chamberland and Joubert in the same journal (pp. 1037-1043).
