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. How common is anthrax and who can get it?

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.

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.

Anthrax Veterinary Services
November 2001 Anthrax, a disease of mammals and humans, is caused by a spore-forming bacterium called Bacillus anthracis. Anthrax has an almost worldwide distribution and is a zoonotic disease, meaning it may spread from animals to humans. All mammals appear to be susceptible to anthrax to some degree, but ruminants such as cattle, sheep, and goats are the most susceptible and commonly affected, followed by horses, and then swine.
The U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) main diagnostics laboratory in Ames, Iowa, the National Veterinary Services Laboratories (NVSL), maintains small quantities of anthrax to use as reference material in making confirmatory anthrax diagnoses in animals. USDAs Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) maintains that laboratory as part of fulfilling its mission to protect American agriculture. Disease Epidemiology
Anthrax is endemic to the United States, occurring sporadically throughout the country as environmental conditions allow. The Del Rio, Texas, region has reported ongoing outbreaks of anthrax in deer and livestock this summer. The most recent outbreak there occurred on Sept. 21, 2001. Other recent outbreaks include an outbreak in cattle and horses in Minnesota in June-July 2000; in cattle, horses, and bison in North Dakota in August 2000; and in cattle in Nebraska in January 2001.
During their vegetative stage, cells of the anthrax agent multiply in the lymph nodes of susceptible animals, including humans. When cells of B. anthracis escape from the animals body and are exposed to oxygen, they form spores. These spores are highly resistant to heat, cold, chemical disinfectants, and long dry periods. B. anthracis spores are reported to survive for years in the environment. Environmental persistence may be related to a number of factors, including high levels of soil nitrogen and organic

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.

Common sense points about anthrax and bioterrorism
  • Anthrax is not contagious. The only way to get the disease is to be exposed to large numbers of spores of the microbe.
  • It is possible to kill the spores, but most of the treatments will also damage any container they are in. See the fact sheet for more details. If you burn your mail, that will also work, but then you can't read that letter from Aunt Marge.
  • As far as getting dangerous mail, Use your head! You say to yourself, "I'm not that important. Terrorists wouldn't send me a package, so why am I so anxious?" Partly because terrorism is so outrageous; because the threat is invisible; because we all feel pretty united and connected to each other right now; and because it's so random. We all feel more threatened by a sniper on the loose than by predictable numbers of car crashes. We feel there is a new kind of sniper on the loose. It's not irrational to be more anxious than the actual numbers suggest, so don't let anyone call you hysterical. So how to manage your worry?

    Searching for the deadly bacteria trail to find terrorists
    SUMMARY: Anthrax or anthrax traces have been detected in the District of Columbia and seven states: New York, New Jersey, Florida, Virginia, Maryland, Missouri and Indiana. Most of the 16 anthrax victims have been postal employees who are believed to have handled three contaminated letters postmarked in Trenton, New Jersey, and sent to government offices in Washington or media outlets in New York. Anthrax cases in Florida are believed to be from a contaminated letter or letters, but no letter has been found. Health authorities Thursday reported "no clues" that might link the anthrax death of the latest victim, a 61-year-old Bronx, New York, woman, to tainted mail. Dr. Julie Gerberding of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention did say, however, that "we haven't identified anything about this strain that's different from strains in the other areas."
