Jean Antoine Villemin 1827 - 1892 who identified the infectious nature of tuberculosis in his publication "études sur la tuberculose", was born at Prey. Mainstream medicine was slow to recognise the significance of Villemin's work.
Villemin is also credited with having invented the term "antibiotique" (antibiotic), though this assertion is contested by some English speakers who say the term was first coined only in the twentieth century by a Ukrainian American named Selman Waksman.
