Frequently Asked Questions What is anthrax?
Anthrax is an acute infectious disease caused by the spore-forming bacterium Bacillus anthracis . Anthrax most commonly occurs in wild and domestic lower vertebrates (cattle, sheep, goats, camels, antelopes, and other herbivores), but it can also occur in humans when they are exposed to infected animals or tissue from infected animals. Why has anthrax become a current issue? Because anthrax is considered to be a potential agent for use in biological warfare, the Department of Defense (DoD) has begun mandatory vaccination of all active duty military personnel who might be involved in conflict.

Bacillus anthracis and anthrax
Introduction The anthrax bacillus, Bacillus anthracis, was the first bacterium shown to be the cause of a disease. In 1877, Robert Koch grew the organism in pure culture, demonstrated its ability to form endospores, and produced experimental anthrax by injecting it into animals.
Robert Koch's original micrographs of the anthrax bacillus Bacillus anthracis Bacillus cereus, which is found in soil habitats around the world, and to Bacillus thuringiensis, the pathogen for larvae of Lepidoptera. The three species have the same cellular size and morphology and form oval spores located centrally in a nonswollen sporangium.
Bacillus anthracis. Gram stain. The cells have characteristic
squared ends. The endospores are ellipsoidal shaped and located
centrally in the sporangium. The spores are highly refractile to
light and resistant to staining. Bacillus thuringiensis
is distinguished from B. cereus or B. anthracis by its pathogenicity for Lepidopteran insects (moths and caterpillars) and by production of an intracellular parasporal crystal in association with spore formation. The bacteria and protein crystals are sold as "Bt" insecticide, which is used for the biological control of certain garden and crop pests.

CDC: Anthrax
Anthrax is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Bacillus anthracis . Although this rare disease is typically caused by contact with infected animals or animal products, B. anthracis has also been used as a bioterrorist weapon. Anthrax is not spread from person to person and can usually be treated with antibiotics if diagnosed early.

Focus on anthrax
Recent events have confirmed that bioterrorism is no longer a threat but a reality. To provide wide-ranging access to the latest scientific information about anthrax and other potential bioweapons, Nature has put together a special online focus on this issue. This focus is made up of two research papers on anthrax toxin, as well as a collection of research, news and feature articles from our electronic archive. The causative agent of the anthrax disease, the bacterium Bacillus anthracis , secretes a toxin made up of three proteins: protective antigen (PA), oedema factor (OF) and lethal factor (LF). PA binds to cell-surface receptors on the host's cell membranes. After being cleaved by a protease, PA binds to the two toxic enzymes, OF and LA, and mediates their transportation into the cytosol where they exert their pathogenic effects. In addition to these Nature papers, this special focus also includes research from October's issue of Nature Biotechnology . Mourez et al . describe the isolation of a synthetic peptide that blocks the action of anthrax toxin in an animal model. These research papers are complimented by a news feature which looks at the threat of bioterrorism and researchers' attempts to counter it, and a collection of research, news and opinion articles from our archive.

for Inhalation Anthrax
Cipro (ciprofloxacin hydrochloride) is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections in many different parts of the body. It does not work for viral infections (for example, the common cold). Cipro is approved for the inhaled form of anthrax after an individual has been exposed. Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients and adolescents less than 18 years of age have not been established, except for use in inhalational anthrax (post-exposure).

FBI picks up 2 men suspected of having deadly anthrax
February 19, 1998 Web posted at: 2:35 p.m. EST (1935 GMT) NEW YORK (CNN) The FBI has taken two men into custody in Las Vegas after suspecting them of developing the deadly biological agent anthrax, top FBI sources told CNN on Thursday. The men, who are believed to be U.S. citizens, were picked up Wednesday night, after "FBI agents were told the two men had biological agents," the source said. An FBI official said that the two were charged with plotting to use a toxic biological agent as a weapon. FBI officials found an unknown substance at an undisclosed site, and dispatched the FBI Hazardous Materials Response Unit from Quantico, Virginia, to examine the material, the source said. A spokesman for Nellis Air Force Base, near Las Vegas, said authorities impounded a vehicle at the request of the FBI. The spokesman gave no further details. CNN was told that five U.S. Army specialists have gone to Las Vegas from the Army's Dugway Proving Ground in Utah. Four of the soldiers are with the Army's Technical Escort Unit, and one is a lab technician specializing in chemical and biological threats.

Information about the possible casualties if anthrax is used as a weapon.Category Society Issues Biological and Chemical Terrorism anthrax......anthrax Fact Sheet, 1999 Fact Sheet Info. Perhaps more insidious is the specterof autonomous groups with ill intentions using anthrax in acts of terrorism.
Anthrax Botulinum Toxin Plague Smallpox ... VHF Anthrax Fact Sheet, 1999 Fact Sheet Info Bacillus anthracis , the organism that causes anthrax, derives its name from the Greek word for coal, anthracis , because of its ability to cause black, coal-like cutaneous eschars. Anthrax infection is a disease acquired following contact with infected animals or contaminated animal products or following the intentional release of anthrax spores as a biological weapon. In the second half of this century, anthrax was developed as part of a larger biological weapons program by several countries, including the Soviet Union and the U.S. The number of nations believed to have biological weapons programs has steadily risen from 10 in 1989 to 17 in 1995, but how many are working with anthrax is uncertain. Perhaps more insidious is the specter of autonomous groups with ill intentions using anthrax in acts of terrorism. The Aum Shinrikyo religious sect, infamous for releasing sarin gas in a Tokyo subway station in 1995, developed a number of biological weapons, including anthrax. Given appropriate weather and wind conditions, 50 kilograms of anthrax released from an aircraft along a 2 kilometer line could create a lethal cloud of anthrax spores that would extend beyond 20 kilometers downwind. The aerosol cloud would be colorless, odorless and invisible following its release. Given the small size of the spores, people indoors would receive the same amount of exposure as people on the street.
