Nicolas Andry de Bois-Regard (1658 – 1742) was a French physician and writer. He played a significant role in the early history of both parasitology and orthopedics. This work,considered the first text on parasitology, is an account of Andry's experiments with the microscope, building on the earlier work of van Leeuwenhoek. Unlike Leeuwenhoek, Andry's experiments led him to believe that the microorganisms he called "worms" were responsible for smallpox and other diseases. He was among the first physicians to discount the notion of spontaneous generation and put forth the notion that disease entered the body from outside sources, in some cases foods.
